Team of Yoga teachers at Anahata Yoga from the Heart in Barrie Ontario

Our Mission

Our mission is to make Yoga accessible for EVERYONE. No matter gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, or income, everyone needs yoga in their life. Our Barrie yoga teachers want to support those who struggle with life challenges and mental health by sharing the practice of yoga. Yoga can do more than calm you and make you flexible. It allows us to become aware of our own needs emotionally and mentally through a physical practice.

Our "Pay it Forward" program was created specifically for those who, for the moment, can't afford the full fee. If you can afford a cup of coffee then you can afford a yoga class. And hey, if you can't afford a class this week then it’s on us! This is our way of giving back to the community in a mindful way.


Yoga teacher at Anahata Yoga from the Heart

Rebecca has always had a passion for teaching kids and adults alike. Currently an elementary school teacher, she loves sharing mindfulness and the benefits of breath with her students. Despite her busy days in the classroom, she decided to pursue her 200 hr yoga teacher training and feels it is the best choice she has ever made. She strives to provide classes that are accessible and focused on positivity and well-being.

" For me, yoga should leave you feeling nourished, calm and connected to your physical and mental body. It is so important to listen to ourselves and become more attuned to what our body and mind are telling us. If you listen, they both have a story to share."

Michelle is a passionate and well practiced yogi. She was recommended yoga, as a way to incorporate movement back into her life after some long term hospital stays when she was a teen. Yoga has helped Michelle to understand and overcome some of the mental barriers that prevented her from being and embracing herself. After a decade of practice, she has unraveled the layers of self doubt and insecurity, to find a place of inner peace and self acceptance. Michelle became a yoga teacher to guide people to the place of their own unique understanding and personal power, within. She believes that the more humanity looks inward, the more beautiful the world will be.

barrie yoga teacher chelsea

Beginning my yoga journey just over a decade ago, I have had times where I've fallen away from my practice, and other times where I'm avidly up practicing every morning at 5.a.m. But one thing that's remained, is the impact it's had for me off the mat.

Yoga has taught me awareness of self, body, and breath in ways that I had never known before. It's opened up my life, and taken me down paths that I never would've thought to have found myself. It's shown me, that it's up to us to notice the magic that is woven into our everyday lives, and I can only hope to inspire others to feel the same.

I can't wait to meet you on the mat, and look forward to making magic with you!
