Our Moksha Yoga community is a group of socially and environmentally conscious yoga studios, collectively changing the world one hot yoga class at a time! What’s ‘Moke-shaw‘? Moksha Yoga in Canada and Modo Yoga in the United States (and the rest of the world) is a unique hot yoga series that combines the precision of therapeutic yoga and the foundations of traditional yoga in a specially heated room. The series is a cardiovascular workout that strengthens, tones and loosens the muscles, while calming the mind and reducing stress. The ‘hot’ in hot yoga allows for deep, safe stretching and promotes detoxification of the skin, blood and muscles through sweat. Moksha Yoga classes are suitable for all levels of ability, even ABSOLUTE beginners with limited flexibility! We serve studios all over the North America, and soon to be in Europe and Australia.
When I started yoga in my early twenties it added zest, colour, and magic to my daily life as well as added flexibility in my body. Later on in my twenties I sort of lost yoga to university, relationships, work and so on and so forth. As a result I started to lose sight of the magic and beauty that is around us everyday. Signing up and committing to the Moksha/Modo Teacher Training in Nicaragua was the best decision I have made in the last 10 years since first stepping onto the mat. The training like an ocean wave smashed that beauty back into my life.

Grow Your Yoga 2015 05/01/2015 — 05/30/2015
2015 marks Moksha and Modo Yoga’s 6th annual GROW YOUR YOGA campaign – a 30-day, community-wide challenge that encourages students to adopt a daily practice. Based on our community’s 7 Philosophical Pillars (Be Healthy, Be Accessible, Live Green, Community Support, Reach Out, Live To Learn, and Be Peace), each studio works together to raise money for a charity doing great things in the world. This year, 100% of the collective funds raised will go to BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS – an organization that matches children facing adversity with caring adult mentors.
