Yoga Truly | Our Stories

Welcome to Yoga, Truly

We are often asked at the studio, where to begin… how to start a yoga practice. The simple answer is to stop everything else that you are doing. The stopping is not easy though. Begin by sitting. From the stopping and sitting and stillness, we will lead you. We will guide you though the flowing dance between the effort and ease, the coordination of the breath, the moving poses and quieting of the mind. Begin by sitting with us. New members always welcome & special pricing applies.

Yoga Truly Grimsby: Grand Re-Opening

Monday August 21st was a very significant day for Yoga Truly!  Not only were we honored to experience the solar eclipse but also witnessed our old studio being torn down at the same time as renovations began in our new space! Tuesday September 5th Yoga Truly Grimsby will re-open in our new permanent studio location at 14 Elizabeth St When we were unexpectedly forced to close our Main St E. location in July after damage from the fire, we were grateful to meet and begin working with Ada and Tim DeLong and Trail Ridge Montessori where we have been running

Grimsby Strong

Yoga teaches us to gracefully surrender that which is not meant for us and be open to new possibilities and beginnings. We are so full of love!

Student Story: Marie Ruggiero

Marie Ruggiero joined Yoga Truly in May and shared with us why she has become a studio regular. How long have you been practicing yoga? I really just started seriously practicing yoga with Claire in May with the 3 month membership. Why Yoga Truly? I had an opportunity to see Claire in action at my school. She came to teach the small kids yoga and my office is right in the library, so I was able to listen in and watch a bit.  I just loved the progress that I was able to see with the kids. I had surgery

Teacher Feature: Claire Matthews

For some, yoga is an instant love. For others, it takes trying it a few times to find the right fit. For Claire Matthews it was the latter, she was introduced to yoga in 2004 by a friend who convinced her to try a Bikram class. Bikram is a style of yoga practiced in a room heated to 40°C. She explains, “I felt like I wanted to throw up, I sat down for half of the class, and then at the end of the class we both got in the elevator and after what felt like 20 minutes we both

Asana of the Month: Extended Triangle Pose

Extended Triangle Pose is a revitalizing posture that encompasses the entire body. It is a hip opener, core strengthener, side bend, twist, and heart opener. The posture requires complete physical and emotional balance of energy—the feet need to be grounded and weighted equally, balanced by the heart, and the hips (our emotional junk drawer) feeling secure enough to open. It requires you to confidently take up space on your mat and in the room to fully express the pose. Beginners and even advanced students often find this pose to be exceptionally challenging. Don’t feel compelled to push through the posture

Student Story: Rebecca Taube

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing one of Yoga Truly’s teachers in training-Rebecca Taube. Rebecca is a joyful, carefree, and a wise 25-year-old woman who owns nothing more than a suitcase full of clothes and the three dogs she adores. Stirred by the quote by Gandhi, “Attachment is the root of all suffering”, which she read in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Rebecca made the bold decision to shed all of her possessions. She discovered that by discarding the clutter in her life she was able to make room for the things that really matter, the things she
