At Lotus Yoga Centre, there is a warm and open space for healing, exploring, and going deep into the practice of Kundalini Yoga. This inviting space is truly Toronto’s Kundalini yoga haven.

Lotus Yoga Centre is owned and run by the kind and radiant Gurushabd Khalsa, who was born in a Kundalini Ashram in Toronto. Gurushabd’s parents, Sat Dharam Kaur and Har-Prakash Khalsa, founded the space in 1993 as a centre for Kundalini Yoga and Wellness. Now, the space has come full circle to their daughter. Gurushabd is a true light and embodiment of the healing of Kundalini Yoga and her energy shines throughout the Lotus Yoga Centre.
Kundalini yoga was a secret and sacred science in India until it was brought to the West in 1968 by Yogi Bhajan, the master of Kundalini yoga. Kundalini yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan®, is considered the most comprehensive of yoga traditions, combining meditation, mantra, physical exercises, and breathing techniques; it is a Raj or King Yoga. Kundalini yoga is the yoga of awareness – it opens your heart and gives you a powerful experience of your soul. It is designed to work on the entire nervous and glandular systems, stimulating overall health and vitality.
Lotus Yoga Centre has the most Kundalini Yoga classes in Toronto, including classes specifically for mental wellness and addiction recovery. This studio is the only one in the city that offers purely Kundalini yoga. Many great pricing packages and student discounts make their classes accessible and affordable.
