The tapestry of life is made up of experiences—ups and downs, joys and sorrows, and pleasures and pains. The one experience that is most challenging for most of us is suffering. The tradition and wisdom of yoga reminds us that, in the absence of enlightenment, life becomes suffering.
Pain is inevitable but suffering is optional. Pain can be defined as an uncomfortable physical, mental, or emotional experience, suffering is a state of being caught up in your painful situation and making it as an aspect of your being. In other words, pain is what happens to us; suffering is our interpretation and reaction to that pain. What are the roots of suffering, and how and where do they come from.
Let’s look at five specific causes of suffering—the five Kleshas. (more…)

Sleep is a key factor in achieving overall good health. If you aren’t well rested, chances are you’ll have a much harder time making healthy food choices and attending fitness and yoga classes regularly. At our yoga studio in Mississauga, we offer classes such as warm candlelight yoga as an opportunity to wind down and get your mind and body ready for sleep. If you struggle with falling asleep at night or wrestle with insomnia, incorporating certain yoga poses into your nightly bedtime routine can not only help you fall asleep, but help you achieve a high quality, restorative sleep too.
I was in search of a yoga teacher training program and stumbled upon Mind to Body....its become my second home ever since. The yoga teacher training program was very detail oriented and definitely prepared for my yoga journey. They covered a lot of topics like anatomy and basics of ayurveda as well. I continue to attend regular yoga classes there now. They offer many various different types of classes..my favs are the restorative and yin classes. The staff is very inviting and friendly and the studio is very very clean and well maintained. Oh yea...can't forget the complimentary delicious detox tea i have every time i attend a class is a bonus!!read more

If I could give Mind to Body more than 5 stars I would! Since starting at this studio 6 months ago, all my aches and pains have been eliminated. That's due to yoga but more so thanks to the personable, caring, passionate and dedicated instructors. It's a blessing to have found a yoga studio where each class by any instructor here is taught with so much passion and bring their own experiences and way of teaching, teaching the right techniques and foundations of poses (grounding feet and hands) alot of others overlook when teaching. They don't ever ever ever make you feel like you have to do a pose they always tell you to follow your body. Love the variety of classes, started with Restorative yoga and now on to hot detox yoga which I didn't ever think I'd do. Mind to body has a great community of employees and members who are always friendly with a huge smile on their faces. It's been so great to connect with other members especially while having the detox tea, yum! Honestly don't know how they keep it so clean with so many members but it's immaculate and shiny. Floors are always swept and mopped constantly. Couldn't have found a more amazing yoga studio, love you guys for all that you do! It's definitely been a life changing process and I'm excited to continue to grow in every way with all of you :).read more
