Loved my Beginner Yoga 1 class with Shasta. I wanted to take this course so I would have a better understanding of the poses and how to breath. Well worth the travel time, driving in from Toronto to t...he studio weekly. I have attended a number of classes at a variety of studios over the years, but pretty much faked my way through it. The fine tuning and gentle tweeking of how to get into, as well as out of, a pose was amazingly helpful. The studio is genuinely welcoming as is the teaching. Shasta is a teacher not a preacher, and I always left the studio feeling joyful, lighter and wanting more. See More

Balanced Life yoga completely changed my life for the better. Reiki healing, the various workshop and class offerings along with the Inspiring Spirit 200 hour teacher training - I have been a member o...f this incredible community for 3 years and as a result my fears have truly dissolved and my life has become abundant and enriching. There is always such a welcoming and comforting positive energy held in this amazing space. I have met lifelong sisters and mentors. Through this community I finally felt I found my true self and place in this world and I cannot express the gratitude I have to Shasta for attracting and creating such a powerful and amazing community and to all the members and teachers who were called and said yes. I love you all and wish you peace and love always ❤️🙏🌈🎉 #myhappyplace #balancedlifeyoga See More

I'm very glad I found this gem of a place. The courses I have taken have taught me how to, not only enhance my personal yoga practice, but how to go after the things I want in my life. My family has c...ommented on how much more relaxed I seem. Shasta's words to me the first night of the Inspiring Spirit Teacher Training struck a cord, and this was reinforced throughout her classes. I'm learning to "do" for me, not just everyone else. It's a difficult process, but I'm working on it, and one day, I hope to inspire others to be the best they can be. See More

I love everything about this studio except for one VERY important thing!

My mum has been wanting to get into yoga for quite a while now and Balanced Life was recommended to us. She deals with skins ...problems and is very sensitive to scents. She called the studio before every stepping foot in there and asked if they are scent free. She was told they are, not to worry.

They say they are but it is clearly not reinforced, as she has had to leave THREE times before the class she went to attend had even started because someone kept coming with a heavy fragrance on. She mentioned it to the girl at the desk every time, told them why she was leaving and that she was told it was scent free. They were all kind and apologetic and reinforced the fact that it is indeed scent free. Yet they arent saying anything to the woman who is coming in scented. (it is the same woman every time and they have been told who) Clearly - because it keeps happening. I suppose the scented woman is a regular and they dont want to offend her? It is unfortunate because now my mum has really just been lied to and there is no follow through at all on the studios part to make the situation right. She is offended and I am, for her.

Its a huge shame because we both really love everything else about Balanced Life Yoga! its a fantastic, magical place with really wonderful teachers. I just wish they could follow through on their own policies. Its pushed us away and I supposed we will have to look elsewhere.

Balanced Life Yoga is so much more than a place where you come to learn a few postures. It is a true community that is filled with love, respect, support and guidance. The teachers are incredibly know...ledgeable and are lifelong students themselves, which means you are always getting the best. This place feels like a second home within a very short amount of time! Aside from thoroughly enjoying the wide range of classes available to me at Balanced Life Yoga, what I'm most grateful for is the change I've experienced within myself. Thank you!! See More

I found Balanced Life shortly after I lost my son and it has helped me so much with my healing. Having taken several pre-registered courses (prenatal, mom and baby, stroller fit, and the beginner 1 an...d 2 programs) I've had a variety of teachers -- and all of them have helped me along with not just my fitness but also my spiritual and emotional healing by being so supportive, caring, and compassionate. It's such an incredibly peaceful atmosphere, but it's also a warm and joyful community of students and teachers. Greeted by name when you walk in the door, you feel a part of something. I love it here and am so grateful to have found them when I did. ❤️☺️ See More

I have been part of the Balanced Life family for over 5 years. I couldn't imagine my life with out my weekly yoga routine. Yoga is the prescription for a healthy pain free life! Throughout the years ...I have benefitted from the wise and caring women who welcome me enthusiastically to the mat. I am so grateful for Balance Life Yoga. It has helped me navigate many storms in my life! Namaste! See More

My experiences at Balanced Life Yoga are always positive and enriching. When I am ready to practise, the wonderful people there welcome me warmly and allow me to find the calm I need. They gently supp...ort me through whatever level I can manage and make the session challenging but not overwhelming. The instructors are knowledgeable and skilled and I feel confident in their ability to help me work through poses to maximize strength and flexibility while preventing injury. Balanced Life Yoga is a true gem in Durham. 💗 See More

5 stars to Desta and her Power Flow class. She has really motivated me and led by example to take my yoga practice to the next level. Such a kind and talented yogi :) and a truly powerful vigorous pra...ctice. Today's practice was the last power flow, which is very sad as it was really one of a kind among the many great classes at Balanced Life. If this class is back, I will definitely join Desta on my yoga mat. See More

I've been a regular practitioner of yoga for over ten years. I recently had a beautiful baby boy and just started practicing yoga again. I wish I went to their prenatal yoga classes. I am registered f...or mom and baby yoga in which my son and I enjoy very much together. I have a month pass and try to get to as many classes as I can. Yoga is a great me time if you have a baby- always feel more grounded and stable after a class. All instructors have been great. The gentle classes are nice and relaxing and the power classes make you sweat but of course make for great shavasana at the end. The classes are very geared to being mindful about everything going on in the class- which I really enjoy. Whether you are new to yoga or a seasoned practitioner, Balanced Life offers a great space to bring your light, love and energy and cultivate it the most amazing practice, yoga. Highly recommend this studio See More
