"Yoga

Citta Vritti Nirodhah"

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali 1.2 

Citta - Mind

Vriti - the racings of the mind

Nirodha - to cease or dissolve

The Eastern Psychology of Yoga is the process of steading the mind through the body via the breath.

Though it is an ancient practice dating back thousands of years, modern scientific research is showing it's benefits to improving our health and wellness. 

We heal in connection

Yoga - from the Sanskrit "yuj" 

to yoke, to  join, to connect

Stressful experiences can leave us feeling exhausted and disconnected from our lives. Knowing we are not alone and connecting with others who share our experience can help us move forward in our healing journey. 

Dr. Vaidya's therapeutic group yoga programs harness the power of community to help you reconnect with yourself and your well-being.

I  wish to acknowledge this land on which the my clinic operates. For thousands of years this has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and I am  grateful to have the opportunity to live and work on this land.
