At the moment, due to COVID-19 restrictions, I am unable to teach in-person yoga classes from the studio. I am still able to teach private lessons and some online offerings (below).
Chair Yoga on Tuesday afternoons: "doors open" at 1:45 pm, class begins at 2:00 pm and ends at 2:45 pm.
You may have movement limitations, but that doesn't mean that you can't do yoga. Movement is medicine for your body, breath, and mind. This class is designed for students who have a hard time getting up and down from the floor. Most of the class takes place sitting in a chair with some standing options. We do stretching, strengthening, self-massage, breathing exercises and meditation.
This class is currently on hold because of Covid. Beginner Yoga: Wednesdays from 10 to 11:15 am at St. James the Apostle Church Hall in Sharon, Ontario.
Yoga Tune Up is a fusion of yoga, functional fitness, self-massage and a therapeutic approach that combines the best of the yoga tradition with modern exercise science. It can help you identify body "blind spots," relieve aches and pains, reduce stress, enhance breathing, and improve your posture. You can start where you are and gradually build your strength, balance, and flexibility. Suitable for students who can get up and down from the floor with ease.
Are you unsure if you can manage a regular yoga class?
Are you struggling with your at-home yoga or meditation practice?
Dealing with an injury or movement limitation?
Are you an avid golfer, runner, or cyclist looking for a yoga routine catered to your sport?
Whether you are a yoga newbie or a seasoned practitioner, a private lesson can be a great way to move forward.
Private Sessions allow a much more individualized, catered approach than a class can. You will receive sixty minutes of targeted one-on-one instruction that can reveal areas where your body is holding tension, discover weak or overly active muscle groups, and increase awareness of breathing patterns that can contribute to stress.
Together we can identify which poses or styles of yoga are most beneficial for your body and personality type, and you can take away specific recommendations and homework. Bring along a notebook and a camera.
I offer several options (pricing below):
Designed for students who have ongoing problems with injuries, back pain, arthritis, MS or fibromyalgia, these sessions help you to explore ways to maximize your mobility, increase your strength, and improve your body awareness without increasing your pain.
All of us get anxious and depressed sometimes. These sessions draw from the wisdom of both body and mind practices derived from yoga philosophy, psychology, pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation. As a trained therapist and a meditation teacher I can blend the best techniques from both east and west to help you cope better, sleep better, feel better and generate a plan for moving forward.
Great for athletes, yoga teachers and teachers-in-training, these sessions can be based around a specific sport, specific needs (e.g. an inversion-based class), or a specific medical question (e.g. which postures are appropriate for someone with a metal rod in their spine).
Pricing for Private Lessons:
One Session $100.00
Three Sessions $255.00
Ten Sessions $ 700.00
Online private sessions via Zoom are available.

I sell classes in blocks that are usually eight weeks long. I do it this way because I find it's the best way to help you make a commitment to your health. When you invest up front for the whole session you're much more likely to follow through. The price is determined by the number of weeks in the session.
8 week session: $120.00
7 week session: $105.00
6 week session: $90.00
If you are traveling (or having surgery) and know in advance you will miss some classes, a pro-rated fee may be created to meet your needs (as long as the class is not wait-listed).
In general, I do not allow people to carry over missed classes unless some pre-arrangement has been made. I am happy to discuss special circumstances with you.
Drop-ins are permitted only if the class is not full. Please check first to avoid disappointment.
Drop-in rate: $20.00
Contact us about which class you would like to register for. Jenn or I will get back to you with the price. You can join mid-session if there is space and the price will be pro-rated.
Registration is not complete until your payment has been received.
Payment options include cash, cheques made payable to Jackson Yoga, or email money transfer to Elaine. (Contact us for instructions).
If you wish to pay by credit card contact Jenn at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you cancel more than 7 days prior to a workshop or session there is no penalty except an administration fee (20% 0f price). You can choose a refund or request that your payment be applied to a future event.
For cancellations 6 days or less prior to a workshop or session an administration fee (20% of price) will be applied and the balance will be transferred to a future event. (Must be used within one calendar year).
After a session has started refunds will not be given, however if you are unable to continue the session due to extenuating circumstances you may transfer to another session if available. This will be granted on a case-by-case basis.
If you are unable to attend a class for personal reasons the class will not be refunded.
In the rare situation where a class is cancelled due to inclement weather or illness of the instructor you will either be refunded for that class or offered a “make-up” class.
In the event of a cancellation you will be contacted by phone or by email at least 2 hours prior to the start of the class or workshop.
Please inform us prior to the beginning of class of any injuries or ailments.
This will allow us to be mindful of your needs and to suggest proper adjustments and modifications.
