Living Yoga & Health

"And suddenly you know:
It's time to start something new
and trust the magic of beginnings." ~ Meister Eckhart

Recently, I let you all know that I would be stepping down as director of Living Yoga & Health as of August 31st. At that time, I expressed a hope that someone would see this as an opportunity to take the studio into its next evolution. I am thrilled to be able to announce that Jacqueline Gilbey and Ken Hood have agreed to take on this role together.

Jacqueline is well-known to many of you from her years of teaching at the studio and her leadership in our Yoga Teacher Training program. You may also recognize her from her many years at Macondo bookstore, prior to the closing of that downtown landmark.

Ken has been leading meditation groups at the studio on Sunday mornings for almost as long as we both can remember. He is also well-known at the Bookshelf, where he has been an invaluable resource for book recommendations in an eclectic range - spiritual and otherwise!

We will strive to make this transition as easeful as possible.

With a very happy heart,

— Jayelle

Our Mission Statement

Our goal is to support everyone who visits the studio in finding rejuvenation of spirit, relief from stress and physical discomfort and guidance in the yoga practices which nurture these goals. Our classes encourage non-competition and self-acceptance. Our motto is "Taking time for yourself is a gift for everyone."

The Yoga Experience

The Living Yoga studio warmly invites you to two quiet and inviting spaces that are available to explore movement, breathing and relaxation. We are located steps away from the square in downtown Guelph.


Qualified instructors offer classes for prenatal, toddlers, children, teens, adults, and those over 50. All ages will develop improved body consciousness and control.
