Taryn Diamond Yoga

I am a student of yoga asana and philosophy, a philosophy instructor, a teacher of public classes and workshops, a trainer of teachers-in-the-making, and a friend.



I’m here because I can offer you:

  • an authentic experience of yoga: a hearty, strength-building class; a peaceful meditation; or a supreme reset through restorative and yoga nidra

  • custom-built modules to bring the lofty world of yoga philosophy back to ground-level

  • tried and true workshops for hire – engaging either the public or teachers-to-be

  • a skilled ear and eye toward creating and designing a teacher training program or curriculum

I acknowledge.

I acknowledge that I live and build a livelihood on land that is the Ancestral Traditional Territories of the Ojibway, the Anishnabe, Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, the Wendat peoples and the Mississaugas of the New Credit. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties.

I acknowledge that I teach practices borrowed from a culture that is not my own, and that this is a privilege.  More specifically, I share and teach the written and aural traditions of yoga from India and Southeast Asian philosophy for which I have deep respect.

I acknowledge that the long history of yoga includes oppression at the hand of white colonizers in British India, and that oppression/exclusion of marginalized people in Western Yoga practice is an ongoing systemic issue and challenge.

I acknowledge that my whiteness confers many privileges including the freedom to teach and practice in public settings, to feel a sense of belonging in doing so, and to garner an income from teaching yoga.

In acknowledging the above, I also commit to wielding my privilege in a way that mitigates cultural appropriation and systemic harm to people of colour, the 2SLGBTQ+ community and those with different abilities. What does this look like? I teach from a place of inclusivity: my language is conscious; I make no assumptions about the abilities, identities or beliefs of the people before me; and, where possible, I offer cost adjustments and scholarships for those who need them.
