Sheldon is one of Toronto’s most sought after instructors, known for his challenging classes, creativity and commitment to both the practice and teaching of yoga.
A natural born athlete, Sheldon came to the practice with a rebellious and playful energy. With a passion for cycling and a childhood of competitive gymnastics, Sheldon was immediately drawn to the powerful Ashtanga yoga method and began a committed practice in 2007.
Ashtanga’s rhythmic breathing, challenging vinyasa and meditative quality had a powerful effect on Sheldon and the practice allowed/encouraged him to focus and connect to a deeper place within himself.
He maintains his daily practice in the tradition of Sri K Pattabhi Jois, R Sharath Jois and R Saraswati Jois.
Sheldon teaches vigorous and dynamic Vinyasa classes that focus on building strength, increasing flexibility and he encourages his students to push the boundaries of their own limitations. Known for running a tight ship and holding students to the same standard he sets for himself, his classes are powerful, fun and challenging.
In addition to leading group classes, workshops and retreats, Sheldon works one-on-one with Toronto’s elite. He is a Certified Yoga Instructor through Downward Dog Yoga Centre and has also completed his Kids Yoga Teacher Training with Bee Birch Yoga Therapy.
