Testimonials

Laura McCrimmon

From this training I feel that maybe nobody sits perfectly in Dandasana or perfectly in Warrior II, but uniquely. This uniqueness is what makes every student and every teacher entirely perfect.

Charlotte Bradley

Our discussions around yoga philosophy were my absolute favourite part of the course. I discovered my mind could bend even more than my body!

Vicki Woolfrey

In this teacher training course, I was listened to, cared for, and encouraged to grow in my own direction by listening to the intuitive teacher inside.

Libby Macdonnell

At 74, I appreciate the gentle individual teaching, the beauty of the room, and the attention to inner awareness. Many thanks.

Restorative Flow

Andrea Gummo

The training was carried out in a respectful, safe atmosphere in which everyone felt valued and included. It was wonderful to see everyone progressing on their yoga journeys with the support and mutual learning of the group. Most important to me, the training was also a lot of fun.

Cathy Nicholson

Restorative Yoga

Melanie Robb

Thank you for the opportunity to practice yoga! I won a session of classes from the Memorial Farmer’s Market, and I am very grateful to Janati Yoga School for their generosity. It is a very welcoming place to try yoga for the first time. I really enjoyed the small classes and I appreciated the kindness […]

Beginner Yoga

Babi Sugarman

Janati is not only to practice yoga. It is a place where I meet beautiful souls, re-connect with my body, and nurture my mind. Namaste.

Kym Riley

The material covered in this course is invaluable and the practical experience helps you to be the best teacher that you can be.

Missed Classes Policy

General

Janati Yoga's weekly yoga classes are offered in the pre-registered session format. The pre-registered session format means that our students will register for their class session - a session can run from four (4) to twelve (12) weeks - and the student will attend the weekly class they have registered for (same date and time each week for the duration of the session). Participants are welcome to register for multiple classes per session (ex: Monday @ 5pm, Wednesday @ 6pm and Friday @ 5:15pm). In each class, priority is given to the students who register for that class for the entire session.

For Pre-Registered Session(s)

Students enrolled in a pre-registered session at Janati Yoga are welcome to make up their missed classes by contacting us to schedule their makeup class (via email or telephone). Missed classes must be made up during the same session as the missed class(es). Missed classes do not carry over from session to session.

For Workshops

Same day cancellation or non-attendance will be charged as if attended - no refunds or credits.

For Yoga Teacher Training

Missed class can be made up the following ways:

  1. Join the next appropriate YTT session that is running to make up the missed hours. There is no additional charge for this option. There is also no guarantee that the make up class time will cover the missed content. Contact the course facilitator to schedule your make up hours.
  2. Schedule private sessions with the course facilitator to make up the missed hours and content. This option has the additional charge of private classes fees @ $85/hr.

Pre-Registered Class/Regular Class Schedule Options

Session Registration

When you register for the entire series, Janati Yoga makes a commitment to hold your spot in the class for the entire session. This means you know you have a place to enjoy your practice each week.

The cost depends on the length of the class and how many weeks are in the series, however it will always be a better rate than the passes. Our prices include HST.

If you join partway into the session, we are happy to pro-rate the cost.

If you miss a class, we encourage you to make up the missed class by attending another class on the posted schedule during the same session.

The registration numbers determine whether a class will run for a session.
