Toni has over 20 years of experience in the fitness, health and wellness industry. She began her journey in
humanities training at Ryerson University, in the Bachelor of Social Work program. Along the way, she discovered a
deep passion and commitment for helping others achieve optimal lifelong fitness, health and wellness. Her
extensive training and education led her to the deeply healing path of yoga in 1995, and prompted her to pursue her
certifications as a Yoga Alliance RYT-500, and YACEP, as well as becoming a Thai Yoga Massage Practitioner.
She has trained in various forms of yoga including Hatha, Restorative, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Anusara and Kundalini
as well as holding additional certifications with the Canadian Fitness Professional Association as a Certified
Personal Trainer, Stott Pilates, TRX and Schwinn Cycling.
Toni believes that Yoga and movement practice is a lifelong journey, with endless paths to explore, inspire and
support continued personal growth. She honours this with ongoing study, continually fine tuning both her own
practice and her teaching by studying with master Yoga and movement instructors throughout North America.
Her teaching style is built on a strong foundation and understanding of anatomy and a deep respect for the wonder
of the human body. Toni knows that everyone’s practice can shift with the tide of life. Her goal is to ensure that all
her clients move and grow with attention to and acceptance of the messages from their own body and breath. She
believes that compassion for personal movement and breath practices are the seat of intention for our approach to
Toni delivers educational sessions on Yoga Practices for Anxiety, Stress and Depression, Movement and wellness

wellness at the centre of her home. In her down time she can be found reading, exploring, pursuing a daily yoga,

Founder and Instructor
"The best investment I ever made in my long term health and wellness was taking personal training sessions with Toni. Her commitment to total wellness allowed me to better manage my life as a whole. Aside from pushing me physically with a multitude of exercises that combined weights, bands, bosu balls, and much more, I was impressed by Toni's attention to form and positioning. As my fitness improved, so did my ability to manage stress; I became a much happier person. Although the sessions were tough (I would expect nothing less), I had FUN and found that I could achieve a lot more physically than I ever expected before."
- Jennifer C., Director, Support Services.

"When I first met Toni Blay I was 40lbs overweight with high blood pressure and cholesterol. I started with a functional training program (designed by Toni) and even though I was the slowest in the class, I still felt part of the class and was never made to feel inferior. Toni modified the routine so I never got bored. If my form was not correct, she gently told me so. My balance, cardio and strength have improved 10 fold since working with Toni."
- Gail C., Bookkeeper
