Queenie & Jonathan Phair

Queenie & Jonathan PhairAs Queenie and Jonathan moved from place to place over the past 9 years, it was their yoga practice that kept them grounded. The time spent working abroad in Shanghai, Hong Kong, and the United States gave them an opportunity to meet and practice with inspirational teachers and incredible communities of yogis. Queenie’s teaching style is generally a faster-paced, vinyasa-power style, marrying the breath to the movement of the body. Her classes teach both fundamental postures and techniques, while at the same time introducing interesting new flows and goal poses. And Jonathan understands that working towards these goal poses can be addictive, but believes that the real work in yoga is aiming for balance in both body and mind. His classes focus on encouraging students to work towards their own individual edge and to pay attention to how they feel in the postures, rather than on what they look like. If you come to either of their classes, expect to be challenged, to let go of tension, to smile, and maybe have a few laughs! Queenie (E-RYT) and Jonathan (RYT) are both full-time yoga instructors, who moved back to Toronto just over 2 years ago. You can find them at various studios and gyms around the city.
