AXEL HAS BEEN TEACHING YOGA FULL TIME THROUGHOUT THE GTA FOR NEARLY 50 YEARS!
Axel has taught more yoga students and classes than any other teacher in Canada! Many students have been in his classes for 10, 20, and even 40+ years. Axel teaches 15 classes per week, at 11 different locations in the GTA.
Rather than creating his own studio, Axel chose to bring classical yoga teachings to various communities across the GTA. He has taught at York University, University of Toronto, Mount Sinai Hospital, Seneca College, community centres, churches, and dance and gymnastics studios.
Axel is known for his athletic workouts and focus on postures which have therapeutic effects. Rare among yoga teachers, Axel enjoys teaching hatha yoga within the context of yoga and Buddhist philosophy. He introduces students to the philosophy of yoga in an engaging and accessible way that can be practically applied to stress management and personal development. Students make use of the concepts and practices they find meaningful for their own lives. The practice of yoga postures and breathing techniques can make a life changing difference, however Axel encourages his students to deepen their exploration of yoga to develop their minds, calm their emotions and enhance their spiritual growth.
