About Anahata Yoga from the Heart

Anahata represents the heart chakra. In Sanskrit, anahata means "unhurt, unstruck, and unbeaten".

Our mission is to support the Barrie yoga community and those who struggle with life obstacles and mental illness with regular practice. Yoga is more than a physical practice, mentally it allows us to clear the mind, focus on our breath work (pranayama) and emotionally “let go” and reset in a non-judgmental space. Our "Pay it Forward" program was created specifically for those who, for the moment, can't afford the full class fee. Through local sponsorship we can give back to the Barrie yoga community in a mindful way. Anahata Yoga from the Heart is a Barrie yoga studio and community space making yoga affordable for all through our Pay it Forward classes. A safe and inclusive space focusing on mental health and wellness through the practice of yoga.

We make Yoga obtainable for
EVERYONE. No matter gender,
sexuality, race, ethnicity, or
income – everyone needs yoga.

What is our "Pay it Forward Program"?

Our Pay It Forward Class is a community class offered for all. Anahata Yoga from the Heart grew from a place of wanting the Barrie Yoga community to be accessible to EVERYONE. No matter gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity or income. Everyone can use yoga in their life. Pay what you can. If you can afford a cup of coffee then you can afford a Barrie yoga class. And hey, if you can't afford a class this week then its on us! Pay It Forward is now offered ONLINE Monday, Wednesday and Fridays 5:00 pm

Yoga is more than physical. It is cellular, mental, intellectual and spiritual - it involves man in his entire being.” ~ B.K.S. Iyengar

Why do we call it a yoga practice?

It's something we continue to work on and learn from. We continue to meet ourselves where we are at TODAY. Practice makes progress.

Yoga is For EVERYONE!

We don't believe in "levels" at Anahata Yoga. Everyone is welcome in the same class. Our teachers offer modifications creating an inclusive space for everyBODY.

Soul Flow

Vinyasa flow class will get you tapping your foot or singing along to Motown, Soul, Indie and Pop music. New to Flow? No sweat! Well, there may be a little. Flow means that we transition through the postures a little quicker and move from pose to pose as we flow. New yogis welcome!
