LAVA YOGA is a wellness centre promoting the Triangle of Health; Healthy Mind, Healthy Body and Healthy Soul! We believe that the three areas of wellness are tightly interconnected and commingled.
Our services are carefully designed and continuously supervised by a yogi retired doctor, Dr. Sadr, with over 50 years of experience based on "Healthy Mind-Body Medicine". Allow us to be by your side and guide you on your wellness journey!
Due to Covid, we have decreased our capacity by half. We only accept students on membership basis. No walk-ins or drop-ins and we monitor the changes on frequent basis.
The studio is fully sanitized prior to your entry. We ask you to kindly answer the Covid self assessment questions at the front, allow us to measure your temperature, sanitize your hand prior to entry to the studio, wear your mask at the front and and in all common areas.
Lava offers a serene sanctuary to get away from the busy of life while you move, breathe, rest your body, meditate and connect. Lava has a wide variety of yoga class styles to choose from on a daily basis for beginner, intermediate or advanced participants. Click on the "Schedule" circle on the top left corner of the page to review the classes. Our team of over 16 teachers is the best and most knowledgeable in the Durham Region.

We believe yoga is an exaggeration of life and how living life is a continuous flow from the beginning to the end; your practice should allow you to be on your mat every day. Looking to mediate or get sweaty, or both? The LAVA variety will allow you to consistently practice and stay healthy & connected to the journey within.
Due to Covid, we only offer hot classes at the studio. The Yin classes are held online only.
Lava Yoga is warmed with infrared heating panels recommended by doctors. We host classes with varied temperatures ranging from Normal (25-27C) to Reduced Heat (27-29C) to Hot (33-35C). There are a host of health benefits associated with infrared heat sources yet also a few health reasons to avoid infrared heat sources. Ask your doctor or read through this link to understand more about how infrared will benefit you. "Far Infrared Heat Information"

THE LAVA MANIFESTO
At Lava Yoga, we strive to be the best we can be every day. We envision the studio as a place to cultivate love, compassion, peace, and awareness. A place to go to when you want to give thanks, when you need to be reminded you are exactly where you need to be at this moment in your life. Lava Yoga is a place you can connect to your inner self and to others in the community; a place you disconnect from outside stimulus and focus on YOU. It's a place you can be authentically you. A place to acknowledge change and learn to embrace and accept it. It's a place for personal growth.
