If you've never been to the Yoga Sanctuary on College, brace yourself. It's a beautiful space with high ceilings, large windows, and an all-encompassing mystic charm. It kind of looks like the Hogwarts of yoga studios.
~ Aastha Lal

The Yoga Sanctuary College was voted the most beautiful yoga studio in Toronto by Toronto Life Magazine. Located in The Odd Fellows Hall, built in 1891, this yoga studio is in the centre of downtown Toronto.

This former ballroom, with hardwood floors, is full of natural light and is a peaceful and elegant studio. The building has one of the oldest operating elevators in the city.

On the artistic side, Canada's internationally renowned Group of Seven used the room as their painting studio. For reasons that will remain a mystery, when lawyers leased the space they created a false ceiling at 12 feet. Walls divided the room in half and the south side of the room became an auction house.

Recently the original ceiling was rediscovered and the hooks in the dome are a reminder of that humble time.

Come and discover yoga in one of Toronto's hidden sanctuary's in the heart of downtown.

A little note about the heat: This building is over 100 years old and the entire building uses the same boiler system. Sometimes it gets very hot in the studio and sometimes it is a little bit cold. It's just the nature of this century old building and we celebrate its beauty and charm.

The Yoga Sanctuary Danforth studio is in an historic building that was built in 1856. This studio has unique curved walls, with beautiful floor to ceiling windows and a multi-coloured exposed brick wall. Conveniently located at the gateway to the east end of Toronto, it is a truly one-of-a-kind practice space.

The Playter Society Building at 95 Danforth was the first commercial building in the area, built by Albert E. Playter and his brother William around 1909. They strategically placed the building where the Broadview Ave streetcars turned around. It soon became the commercial and social centre for the district.

Liberace performed at concerts across the hall where The Joy of Dance is now located. The hall became the place to dance to big name bands in the 1930's, like Guy Lombardo. This building caught on fire in 1975 and suffered tremendous damages. From the ashes of a terrible fire, The Yoga Sanctuary Danforth has resurrected this space.

Conveniently located at the gateway to the east end of Toronto, it is a truly one-of-a-kind practice space.
