Urban Edge Yoga is located at Bloor and Spadina and here you can learn the ancient secrets of health, happiness and transcendental knowledge, practice a karma-free and stress-free lifestyle, experience blissful country retreats and taste mouthwatering vegan feasts. It’s a great way to break out of the mundane world of mass-consumption. Urban Edge Yoga presents a stress-free and a friendly environment where guests and members are encouraged to take part in a variety of activities offered through out the week.

Not only is this a non-profit setup, but the staff are unpaid volunteers, and an interesting mix of doctors, engineers, management buffs, social workers, accountants and scientists who choose to practice spiritual techniques for the purification of consciousness and share it with others. This helps to create an environment unlike any other. Each event is accompanied with a Vegan meal and the high spiritual qualification of the cooks lends a special flavor of spiritual purity.
At UrbanEdge we recognize that Yoga is more than just physical exercise. Whether you are flexible or not, there is a lot we can learn from this ancient process as described in the Bhagavad-Gita. So no matter what your interests or background, if you have a little desire to experience the world beyond that which is ‘obvious’, we have a program for you. These activities include Yoga classes, spiritual discussions, weekly Bhagavad Gita classes and Vegan cooking classes.

Established under the visionary direction of the founding Acarya ‘A.C Bhakti Vedanta Swami Prabhupada’, we want to build a community here, but not just any community – a spiritual community based on the spiritual tenets of the ancient east as presented in Vedic Literature. In Toronto this project is led by the Walking Monk, Bhakti Marga Swami.

Urban Edge Yoga staff wants to strive to create the environment where members come to relax and dig deeper into understanding the hidden secrets of good health – physical, mental and spiritual. We have sister operations at York and University of Toronto, and also organize many festivals and events for people of Toronto. UrbanEdgeYoga is a part of an international movement with centers in almost every corner of the world. We urge the budding Toronto spiritualists to drop by our little studio anytime from Monday to Friday and expect a hot meal and warm smiles. The staff at Urban Edge Yoga promises the guests a unique yoga experience!
