Ruby is an occupational therapist and yoga teacher in Toronto, Ont. She is also studio director at Union Yoga + Wellness, a beautiful 6000 square foot yoga studio that offers classes in hot yoga, hatha and vinyasa yoga, restorative yoga, and pre and post natal yoga.
Ruby began her yoga journey in her hometown of Montreal while pursuing her studies in psychology. She can still remember that euphoric feeling that stayed with her for hours after her first class. What began as a means to stay fit evolved into a practice that gave her tools to manage anxiety, and to stay centred during times of stress. Ruby earned her yoga teacher certificate in 2010, and is so grateful to be able to share her love of yoga with others.
Ruby’s goal as a teacher is to facilitate a deeper awareness of the mind-body-breath connection, and to create a safe and supportive space for students to practice. She is a firm believer that all you need to practice yoga is intention, and breath. Her classes are lighthearted, challenging, and encourage reflective self-awareness.
