It is with much gratitude and excitement that we announce the opening of Beyond Yoga Studio & Wellness Centre.


It has been my personal vision and passion for many years to create such a wonderful space. It is my intention to inspire, to create and to provide a place and space for all of us to reach beyond.


"Be the grandest version of the greatest vision ever held about you."






What a weekend it was! It was wonderful to see familiar faces and meet so many new people who share our passion for yoga and wellness.Thank you to everyone who took the time to tour Beyond and participate in our demo classes.

Congratulations & Enjoy!
Congratulations to Beyond Yoga on your grand opening in Kanata!  Your yoga studio and wellness centre is a truly warm and inviting space.  Anyone interested in yoga (like myself) would be pleased to walk through the door and take one of the many classes offered. 


As part of the Kanata Food Cupboard, I would like to thank Beyond Yoga for partnering with us.  The Kanata Food Cupboard assists, on average, 250 families per month. Our efforts to provide food assistance to the many Kanata residents in need would not be possible without the support of organizations like yours.  


I look forward to working together for the benefit of the community.


Patricia Elkins, Event & Volunteer Coordinator, Kanata Food Cupboard

Chrysalis House is excited to be one of the recipients of Beyond Yoga's Karma endeavours!


Chrysalis House is a 25 bed shelter located in Kanata for women and their dependents who have had to leave their homes due to abuse from an intimate relationship.  Staying at the shelter affords women the opportunity to keep themselves, and their children, safe while organizing resources to move forward in her life free from abuse.


Chrysalis House works from a feminist perspective and adopts an "empowerment" model in which we believe that women are the experts in their lives.  Our role is to provide information, education &  support while respecting women's right to make the choices that are best for them and their children.


We thank the patrons, owners and staff of Beyond Yoga in supporting the women and children of Chrysalis House in their journey towards safety & wellness.
