About Moksana Yoga Studio

MokSana Yoga Center offers drop-in yoga classes in a variety of traditional styles and levels (from restorative to advanced) in a safe and nurturing environment where students can explore body, breath, mind and spirit. We also have gently heated yogahour® classes which are challenging sequences that aim to be the most doable yet difficult one-hour flow class offered anywhere. As well we offer workshops and a longstanding yoga teacher training program taught by highly qualified, experienced and dedicated yoga instructors. Every service and product we offer is designed to inspire and support people on their yogic path.

MokSana Yoga Center was founded in December 2001 with a mandate to provide inspiring, safe yoga classes in a variety of styles. The center is located in Victoria, BC, and offers a certified comprehensive 250-hour Yoga Teacher Training course, as well as continuing education workshops for yoga teachers and students.

At this facility, freedom – or moksha – is experienced through the practices of traditional and contemporary approaches to yoga, meditation, and holistic health. The studio is located in Fan Tan Alley in Victoria’s historic chinatown. With its high open ceilings, natural light, and peaceful atmosphere, MokSana is a wonderful place to experience the vital connection of body, breath, mind, and spirit.

MokSana is committed to providing a safe and welcoming space for all people regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, profession, nationality, disability or religion. Yoga means union and the practice of yogic techniques help us to connect to the part of us that transcends these labels, ultimately leaving us with a deeper appreciation of each other’s “essence”. Please note that while the single occupant change rooms within our studio are not gender specific, the washrooms in our building currently are, but that may change in the future. The studio is wheelchair accessible through Fan Tan Alley.

I am trying to give some “critical” feedback or these pages but, honestly, this has been an amazing experience as I am sure it has been for every single person. I feel like I have been taught not only by very “skilled” and wise people but also very caring and loving people. Thank you.


I am so grateful to have taken my training with everyone at MokSana. It was an experience I will never forget and one I am so grateful for. Thank you All!! What a great, genuine, loving team at MokSana.


I would recommend this course to anyone, whether they wanted to teach and/or deepen their practice. Thank you soooo much!

Shelly Silva

A transformational eight weeks. A thorough and very well put together course. The quality of teaching was phenomenal. I can’t believe how much I learned in these eight short weeks. While I intend to teach in some capacity, the amount my practice grew and evolved was worth the price of tuition alone.

Lisa Young

The instructors were so very helpful and giving of their knowledge. I felt like each and everyone of the teachers here want me to succeed and be the best teacher that I can be. Unbelievable support. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Alex Basi

This course is so nourishing! All the teachers have been incredibly encouraging. Thank you!!

Gwen Cole

The last two months have been truly transformative for me. I feel like a different person than I was at the beginning of this course. My knowledge of yoga and my personal practice, my Sadhana, has deepened it ways I am only beginning to become aware of. I feel immense gratitude toward the skilled, lovely, generous teachers here at MokSana. I feel like their support, their encouragement, understanding and compassion have allowed each of us to feel safe, secure and accepted. I feel like I have been embraced into the warm arms of this incredible community and I can only say “thank you” from the bottom of my ever increasing heart.

Jeremy Balliston

I came expecting a linear teaching program and I got a personal journey out of it and I gladly appreciate it. As the classes end I feel confident going into my practicum and the journey is only beginning.

Garry Sc

I thoroughly enjoyed this program and all its facets. The teachers are amazing, the material is so fantastic and the environment created with all the incredible students is so welcoming that it is so familiar/exhilirating to move closer to your True Self.

I never could have imagined how much this course was going to shape my life and how close I would become with my fellow students. What a gift this has been to meet and grow with so many dear souls.

I though this course was absolutely incredible! A wonderful safe place for learning and transformation. It is incredible how much I have changed and grown in the last 8 weeks. I have learned how seriously powerful the practice of yoga is…

I have confidence to teach, as this program is supportive, comforting and includes a vast amount of knowledge. Thank you for a truly life changing experience and for the contintual support and laughs throughout. Namaste!

Fonda Betts

This is the best thing I’ve ever decided to do for myself. I am sad to see it end. I really felt that the teachers that were guiding us in the TTP were top notch and such a precious resource of knowledge. Thank you sincerely!

Bailey June

The variety of teachers assured that I received multiple viewpoints on yoga, which of course helps point out that I must listen to myself. I am truly more myself. Thank you!

Lin Chen

This course was so valuable. I had no idea of the breadth and depth of learning that would take place. I can honestly say that I now feel confident that I can teach yoga with a good solid base of knowledge of all aspects of yoga.

Shelly Silva

Such a supportive group and felt like home! From the minute I arrived I felt welcomed and in the right place. Love how much we learned from each other.

Justin Ross

TTP at MokSana has met and exceeded all my expectations for what a strong TTP should be. Every instructor was impressive in their knowledge of and commitment to yoga; they were welcoming and accessible, more than generous with their time and energy both inside and outside class. I have learned (and un-learned) so much and feel really well prepared to teach.

Serena Gasper

Excellent course – wonderful exposure to a wide range of teaching styles. Thank you so much for your kindness, loving energy and dedication!

Chris Wilson

Variety of material with kind generous openness modelled constantly by instructors and therefore as well as students. Thanks for such valuable lessons & opening my eyes to the potential of all.

Irina Bogachek

This course opened my heart, mind and soul. Recommend this program to anyone wanting to positively benefit their life. Thank you Namaste!

Erin Gilbert Anderson

It has been a life changing and inspirational experience. I feel so grateful for being part of a such a wonderful group of people and program. Things will never be the same and I’m closer to myself then I’ve ever been. Thank you so much.

James Barry

These past 8 weeks have been transformative. I am leaving not only with a deeper, more profound understanding of yoga, but also, of myself. I look forward to sharing my passion for yoga as an instructor. Thank you to all the skillful, compassionate instructors at MokSana for sharing their learning, talent and time with us. We are all the better for it!

Suzie Spitfyre

This was absolutely one of the best experiences I have ever had. I thought I was coming to learn how to teach yoga but it has been way more than that! In order to be there for others you must be there for yourself first and this course does exactly that. It prepares you to teach others by first exploring yourself and coming to know yourself first. This is the beginning of a journey and I am so lucky to have begun it here!

Karen Allen

MokSana became my home away from home. Everyone was so kind and inviting

Renee Sala

I loved everything about this course: the studio space, the studio ethics, the class size, the teaching styles, the weekend format and especially the breadth of material and the depth of practical knowledge of the teachers.

Jaimy Fischer

It was a wonderful adventure. I took away not only education relevant to teaching but also to me and my everyday life. That’s yoga!

Bodhi San Juan

Loved it! Will recommend to others wishing to teach or deepen their practice. I feel confident after this course to teach beginners and how to move forward as a teacher and student in self study and learning more about the gift of yoga! I love this studio, this course, the teachers & instructors and how it has helped me explore myself more deeply and cultivate awareness. Thank you Ida and all the teachers!

Distractions Kate

Honestly I don’t think there could be a better group of teachers/people to teach this program. I have learnt more in the last 8 weeks than I ever could have imagined. I would recommend doing this whether you want to teach or not. So amazing, it will change your life! ?

Kathryn Yogakat

I feel extremely prepared to go out into the world and teach yoga. Great topics, great teachers, excellent delivery of information. This course has proved to not only be a chance for learning, but a time of inner spiritual and emotional transformation as well. Highly recommended

Roxie Fehr

This course did not just prepare me for teaching, it prepared me for life. The values in the information and what I learned was amazing. I am so proud of making the decision to be part of this. I hope everyone gets an opportunity to experience this. I can’t wait to share what I learned. This was AMAZING!

Dee Westwood

This course provided me with a chance to go deeper into my own practice. It gave me the opportunity to widen my knowledge base of the vastness that is yoga and it fuelled my enthusiasm to share what I have learned with anyone who is open to it. It is a program for everyone.

Corinne Mah

Exceptional learning environment – safe, comfortable and wonderfully sharing. I feel as though I’ve been welcomed into a new and wonderful family. Thanks so much.

Hayley Basaraba

Life changing! I am SO grateful for the opportunity to take this program. It has been challenging and eye opening and full of growth and good change. I feel like I have finally found my path and this is just the start. Thank you for deep down. I never thought I’d feel confident to teach and it feel so good now that I’ve passed the first few major milestones. Thank you to Ida and all the other incredible teachers who put their efforts, heart, and compassion into this program and for being available and willing to share and help us on our journeys! You have helped me more than you know!

Sydney Della Gleeson

Teacher training here at MokSana has exceeded my expectations. The amount of new material presented was so clear and made very accessible. All the teachers extend their passion and love of yoga through to us, so the material just nestles into memory. I am so blessed to have been able to be part of this year’s training and wouldn’t have wanted to start this new journey anywhere else

Rebecca Christine

So happy to have completed this program. It exceeded my expectations. The experienced, senior teachers made a huge difference as they brought a wealth, depth and diversity of experience to the program.

Ashlie Soko

I’ve really enjoyed the Immersion and Yoga Teacher Training course! It is a very comprehensive course including everything one needs to know to teach yoga. We had great teachers who made the material interesting and at times entertaining! Thank you so much, I’ve learned a ton and am excited to learn more.

Lisa Poeckert

The course was packed with diversity, information & humour. An unforgettable & transformative experience. It has altered the way I think about life and will forever altar my yoga practice. All of the teachers had so much wisdom to share and were passionate about the studio and practice of yoga. If anything, I wish the course was longer. It’s opened the door to a life long spiritual journey. Thank you! (

Leila Mazhari

This course was everything I expected, and more! The teachers asked us to come in with an open mind, and let the new learning take us where it will. It took me to places I had no idea I would go. Thank you so much for starting me on a new journey.

William Krumm

I’m so impressed with the comprehensiveness of the material presented. The variety of teachers brings a level of depth and experience that greatly enriches this TTP.

William Krumm

Whatever the future holds for me with respect to teaching yoga, I found this course invaluable for my own practice and journey in this life. It reinforced my established practice and added a new dimension to it. Thank you!

Marika Petri Arcand

What a great way to advance one’s practice. Life as I know it has changed forever through these eight weekends. Warm, inviting, supportive environment with knowledgeable, caring instructors who are interested in seeing students succeed and leave the program feeling confident and capable.

Jeffrey Charles

This program was amazing. I loved the open discussions we were able to participate in. The material was fascinating and the way it was taught was completely absorbable. I liked having all the different teachers and felt like it was a very well rounded program. I thought the learning was fun and easy and I believe everything will be a huge influence on the way I teach in the future. I’m leaving the program excited and full of enthusiasm for teaching.

Ida Manly

This course has deepened my own yoga practice and I’m amazed at how confident and prepared I feel to begin my teaching journey after this course! It seemed so daunting and overwhelming at times. One of the greatest strengths I feel this course has is the variety of instructors who all teach subjects that they are most knowledgeable about and their passion for what they’re teaching shows. Taking the TTP at MokSana is up there on top 5 best things I’ve done for myself in my life. I have a better understanding of myself and feel a greater connection to the world around me.

Kristy Durst

LOVED the course. I am leaving with a better understanding of yoga as a whole and am sad it’s over. The teachers were wonderful. Full of knowledge and didn’t make you feel silly for asking questions. Very supported through the entire session. The manual is a great tool to look back on and a jumping off point that has just peaked my interest/love of yoga even more. I feel prepared to teach a class and confident that people will be able to follow along with what I share with them. If people ask where I was taught, I will proudly say MokSana.

Chantal Janine

I could not have hoped for a better experience! Every moment of this course has helped to strengthen and deepened my own yoga practice and change me into a more knowledgeable and in-tune yogi

Chantal Janine

All of the teachers and information from this program is outstanding. I honestly never thought I would be able to stand up in front of a class and teach yoga. It has been a dream of mine to just do and finish this program for many years. If I go and teach, that is just a bonus. I have met a wonderful group of amazing people that I hope to always be connected to and teachers I hope to continue learning from. I would highly recommend this program to anyone, and already have. (Spring 2016) I could not have hoped for a better experience! Every moment of this course has helped to strengthen and deepened my own yoga practice and change me into a more knowledgeable and in-tune yogi.
