The Studio at Six Degrees!
We grow, we shift, we find our place.
Each of our teachers in every class is hand-picked for their skill, sensitivity and all around wonderfulness. We hope you enjoy what we have to offer.
- Yoga: Asana, Pranayama, Meditation
- Tai Chi, Chi Gong and Kung Fu
- Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Applied Mindfulness
The Studio at Six Degrees is being intentionally created as a space where:
- yoga is taught in a safety-first, anti-oppression, mind-body-spirit framework;
- teachers have credentials & experience in holistic health care such as TCM, Ayurveda, MBSR, Osteopathy etc, and are values-aligned regarding inclusive community health;
- and students experience increased wellness and inspiration to support unique and balanced life pursuits.
Programming fees are based on a pre-paid sliding-scale or a reasonable rate, thereby encouraging students to attend to their practice as a normal, regular health resource, not a luxury.

Mindfulness Everyday is a dedicated team of teachers with formal mindfulness training who are highly experienced in conducting MBSR workshops in Toronto. Mindfulness Everyday offers a number of programs based on Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), first developed in 1979 by Jon Kabat-Zinn, founding director of the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Mindfulness is the ancient practice of present moment, non-judgmental awareness of one's life experience.
Dr. Kabat-Zinn describes mindfulness as an approach to life based on the understanding that: “the present is the only time that any of us have to be alive – to know anything – to perceive – to learn – to act – to change – to heal”. MBSR programs have helped thousands of people transform their lives. The course is challenging and life-affirming.
Through a series of 8 weekly sessions, participants learn and integrate mind-body techniques, designed to uncover and strengthen resources that are already within them. Several studies have shown that MBSR can lower stress and increase vitality and well-being.
Costs: $ 270 (plus tax)
Included are 8 audio files with different meditations and a booklet.
You will get guided instruction in a series of mindfulness meditation practices, as well as practical exercises to bring mindfulness into everyday life. You will learn to focus the mind and to be more mindful with yourself and others.
