Om T.O. Summer Solstice Yoga Classes

Yogis unite for inaugural Om T.O. in Toronto’s Distillery District for a day of free outdoor yoga on Friday, June 21, 2013. The event for all yoga skill levels was inspired by the thousands who take part in the Mind Over Madness in Times Square, New York. Classes are 40 minutes and will be taught by top yoga instructors in the city from 10 am to 6 pm - bring your own mat and enjoy the longest day of the year in the fascinating and historic neighbourhood. You can check out the schedule and register at the event website.

The yoga celebration is in support of Colon Cancer Canada and minimum $10 donations are suggested. "For those who wish to make a larger pledge, corporate teams, families, groups and individuals can reserve a mat in advance: $300 for the morning (five classes from 10 a.m. to 1:35 p.m.), $400 for the afternoon (six classes from 1:35 p.m. to 6 p.m.) or $600 for the whole day (11 classes from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.). Teams who reserve their mat for the whole day are able to keep it; other mats will be raffled off to attendees. Mats are donated by Lululemon Stores in the GTA."

“It was a personal decision on my part to include Colon Cancer Canada as the charity partner for Om T.O,” said Jamie Bussin, founder and publisher of Tonic Magazine and co-creator of Om T.O. “Before becoming the publisher of Tonic, I worked alongside my father as a commercial litigation lawyer. After he suffered through many illnesses including colon cancer, my father told me to fix my poor health before it was too late. It was then that I decided to become fit; I lost over 50 pounds, changed my lifestyle and started the magazine, through which I support Colon Cancer Canada in memory and in honour of my father.”

Vendors, coupons, samples and free beverages will be available on site for participants: Studio 2 Yoga, Eve's Leaves, Rosedale Wellness Centre, Yogaga and MWL Jewelry. Participating studios include the following.
