Jaffer Hussain is a Toronto-based yoga teacher and wellness advocate. His focus and intention through his work is to teach others how to live well physically and mentally. By offering a combination of yoga and meditation in classes, workshops, and retreat settings, he is able to connect with his community in a
meaningful way. Jaffer offers a yoga class that isn’t just a movement practice, it’s an experience. Expect to be surrounded by the sounds of his latest curated playlist, held by the strength of his confident teaching, and nurtured by the sound of his voice as he guides you through the ebbs and flows of class. His classes are intuitive and taught completely by verbal instruction. This allows Jaffer to offer more hands on enhancements, create the experience that’s best for those in the room, and give students the opportunity to sink into the feeling of a pose instead of how it ‘should’ look. An hour spent in Jaffer’s class is to experience a loved and well-thought recipe. A great playlist, slow starts, heat building flows, juicy cool downs, long savasanas, aromatherapy, and hands-on enhancements. Each ingredient plays a key role in every student’s experience.
Justin has been curious about yoga since 2003 after discovering the practice during his undergraduate years at the University of Toronto. It wasn’t until his own personal experience with cancer in 2007, however, did his relationship to the practice evolve into a profound and passionate commitment. This life experience led Justin to Nashik, India where he truly began studying and integrating yogic teachings at Yoga Vidya Gurukal. Seeing and continuing to experience the transformative healing qualities of the practice, Justin dedicates his life now to helping others on their own mindfulness journey. He is honoured to hold space for people to slow down and rest, to expand and reflect and to discover the potential miraculous daily health benefits of integrating yoga and meditation. Justin teaches a variety of daily classes in Toronto. He also facilitates workshops, international retreats, restorative teacher training programs and hot stone yoga therapy. He currently studies with Annie Carpenter and assists the beloved Seane Corn.
