Where are you located?
You can find us at 103-1201 Dundas Street East (SE corner of Dundas street East and Carlaw Avenue). You enter the studio through The Raspberry Café. Please first check-in with the friendly barista, and then proceed to the change rooms and yoga studio which is in the back. (Why the Café you ask? Because who doesn’t want a coffee or a cookie after a yoga class!)
What if I’m new to yoga?
No problem! At Setu Yoga Studio, we have students of all levels, from beginners to long-time practitioners. Check out the class schedule here, and come to a class that is appropriate for your level of experience.
What should I wear/bring?
Wear anything you’re comfortable in that allows you to move freely (yet won’t accidentally flash the other students when you’re in downward dog). T-shirts, shorts, yoga wear are all fine! For newbies, there are no socks or shoes in yoga. We have mats at the studio so no need to bring one from home. The only other items you might want to bring are a water bottle and a towel.
What’s with the ropes, belts and blocks in Iyengar Yoga?
Iyengar yoga is about performing poses correctly, so your body gets the maximum benefits of the pose without causing injury. Since every body is built differently with different levels of flexibility and strength, most of us need a bit of assistance at first. That’s where the blocks, ropes, mats and blankets come in.
