Kathryn Beet B.F.A. Hons, CLD, ERYT 500, PRYT, Founder, Director of Yogaspace

I have been a movement educator for thirty eight years and a yoga teacher for thirty one. After receiving my graduate degree in Dance Therapy and Education, I spent my early post grad years choreographing, producing and directing in alternative and mainstream theatre.

The Mother of two and Grandmother of three, I served as a doula for ten years and created Toronto’s first Pre-Postnatal Yoga Program in 1993. I founded Yogaspace in 1996 on an alley off of Bellwoods Avenue and led the studio’s first 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program in 2000 alongside Menakshi Joy and Michael Stone. In 2004 I moved the studio to the four thousand square foot space on Ossington Avenue where it grew with the street and thrived until the lease ended in late 2021. In 2008 I created the Yogaspace Therapeutic Yoga Program which maintained a strong following over twelve years until it was shut down by the Pandemic. Throughout that time, I trained close to a hundred therapeutic yoga practitioners. In 2011 I created the Yogaspace Wellness Centre which was the studio’s mainstay through the first two years of the pandemic. In 2015 I created the studio’s Strength Training and Functional Movement Program which, after five successful years, was also shut down by the pandemic. The studio has hosted numerous International yoga teachers over the past twenty six years including TKV Desikichar, Donna Farhi, Bryan Kest, Gary Kraftsow, Joel Kramer, Tom Myers, Leslie, Kaminoff and many more.

Having worked in clinical settings for 10 years and with private clients for 30, I am probably best known for my fun Vinyasa classes, and my work with aspiring yoga teachers. Over twenty years and up until the pandemic, I regularly led local and International yoga retreats here in Ontario, and in India, Mexico, Portugal, Italy and Greece.

Presently, my focus is split between re-homing and running Yogaspace in it’s beautiful new location, working closely with aspiring yoga teachers, supporting the Yogaspace teaching team, reframing my own personal and teaching practices, rebirthing Therapeutic Yoga in the new space, spending quality time with my three granddaughters and being the primary care provider for my family’s Alapaha Bulldog, Oso.
