TQS Transformation Brings Yoga to High Schools

This past fall Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Secondary School in Mississauga hosted a full day Participaction/Spirit Day for its students. Students were encouraged to participate in some of the many activities held throughout the day - road hockey, a firetruck pull, Zumba, Chess, and Yoga. TQS Transformation was on site to lead over 50 students and teachers in an hour long yoga class.

TQS Transformation Brings Yoga to High Schools


In December, TQS Transformation traveled to the experiential school, Bronte Creek Project in Burlington to bring yoga to approximately 14 students and their teachers. The Bronte Creek Project is a one semester, four-credit, community environmental leadership program for grade 11 and 12 students in the Halton District School Board. The school site is located in North Burlington off Appleby Line. While the classroom is often the surrounding outdoor wildlife, there is a small building where students can do desk work, prepare lunchtime meals and – for an hour in December - practice yoga. For many of the students, this was their introduction to yoga. With the quiet back drop of freshly fallen snow just outside the picture window, the students quickly found their rhythm to the movement and relaxed for a few quiet moments at the end in savasana.

Truly a peaceful place with a group of energetic students who love to be outdoors. We hope to return in the Spring to practice outside beneath the trees.


This saying posted on their Facebook page captures the spirit of the students participating in the Bronte Creek Project!


I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery – Air, Mountains, Trees, People. I thought: This is what it is to be Happy.
