Spirit Loft is a dynamic and inclusive space offering programming to encourage living in greater awareness, harmony and health. The heart of Spirit Loft is Yoga, movement and community. We are located in a beautiful and spacious true loft in the heart of Toronto’s east end neighbourhood of Leslieville.
Spirit Loft was founded in 2011 by husband and wife team, Andre Talbot and Catalina Moraga. From the onset, we set out to create a space that celebrates the diverse tapestry of embodied practice. We honour the rich traditions of yoga and mindfulness practice, and we also embrace the evolution of practice. We are interested in how these ancient practices meet us today as modern urban dwellers. We offer instruction in complimentary disciplines (including, but not limited to yoga asana) for varying levels of experience, intensity and abilities. Through this diversity, we encourage our practitioners to develop a practice that is adaptive, compassionate and curious.This approach is designed to avoid repetitive strain injury/plateaus and promote balance/sustainability.
We strive to provide a joyful, meaningful, conscious place to explore transformative practice and have a great team of skillful, highly trained and dedicated teachers to support you along the way.
Our studio supports the New Leaf Yoga Foundation in making yoga more accessible to youth in the places where it has been least available. We are taking a stand as a Warrior for Peace studio by donating monthly in support of New Leaf’s initiatives in sharing yoga and mindfulness based life skills to youth in custody facilities as well as community centres and schools in under serviced neighbourhoods across Southern Ontario.
