A place of retreat, refuge and incubation...

About the Studio

Inhale. Exhale.

More than just a yoga studio or educational institute

Atlas exists to serve the world, not a refuge from it. We believe in the deeply transformative power of place and that this place of retreat, refuge, incubation must always be in service of something larger than self. We are structured to provide the tools to tap into and release latent capabilities and stoke the fire of our deepest sense of purpose on the microcosmic and macrocosmic scales.

Atlas is a leading centre for exploring and realizing human potential through direct experience, education and ongoing research. Here, we work towards the realization of a peaceful, just, creative and sustainable world, asking hard questions and facilitating deep connection, conversation, freedom to fail and space to grow and change. We sponsor socially responsible projects in our community and beyond through donations of space, time and training. We provide personal, spiritual and socially transformative programs for our community and beyond. People find us from all around the world and journey to our space to connect, learn and grow - to become the change that we wish to see in the world.

Our brick & mortar anchored in the historic downtown Galt, on the Grand River on the traditional lands of the Attawandaron (Neutral), Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples, Atlas Studio is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes ten kilometers on each side of the Grand River. With an deep and wide intellectual history, Atlas is a world-wide network of seekers who look beyond dogma to explore deeper spiritual possibilities; forge new understandings of self and other; and pioneer new paths for change.
