November 20th, 2021 will see the Home of Yoga journeying into its 36th year. The Home of Yoga has been through 5 locations and began before Yoga mats were a thing.
The heart of the Hoy was always about Place. A place to belong, to sit in circle, to move, to breathe, to be in community. A place where each class began and begins with the question " How are you today? " and takes the time to listen. Classes were not known for finishing on time.
The Hoy sits at the centre of Heart place as this is where our non-profit grew from.
We have been through major change over the last 3-4 years. With the passing of our Co-Founder and creator of Transformational Yoga, Sam Weinstein early 2018 and the impact of COVID.
A lot of care has been poured into growing our non-profit as a collaborative model and this direction was envisaged and in process for a while before 2018.
The heart of the Home of Yoga continues to beat strong, to flow with and adapt to change. Watch here as we integrate the old website and create a new.
The following addresses bring you here:
