Yoga by Design brings yoga to remarkable, beautiful spaces in Toronto and beyond.

Experience yoga like never before within the Art Deco and modern spaces of Design Exchange! Led by yogini and award-winning writer and architecture critic, Lisa Rochon, each of these lunchtime classes will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
 
Lisa Rochon brings an authentic practice of yoga to beautiful spaces - inside masterworks of design or outside below the canopy of oak trees. Her training in Ubud, Bali and in Dharamsala hill station in the Himalayas, India means she understands the deep roots of yoga and its 2500 year-old history. Combining healing Hatha yoga with powerful Ashtanga flow, Lisa brings the sounds of Tibetan healing bowls to end-of-class savasana. Sink into your mat, listen to the sounds of the East, and enjoy the bliss!
Doors open 11:40am and 20 Lululemon yoga mats are available for use on first come, first serve basis. Or bring your own mat, and water, too! Plus, join us for a relaxing cup of tea in the DX lobby after class and take in the DX: Uncrated exhibits.

See how 81 handcrafted blocks can be arranged 43 million different ways, experience mind-bending projects inspired by Moire pattern and dazzle camouflage, and be awed by an off-the-wall work inspired by Callophrys rubi, a tiny butterfly.
 
Again, we’ll have complimentary drinks from Ace Hill beer and snacks from Marigold and Onions – including ice cream! Plus, DJ Odario – a regular mixmaster of Grand Analog – will spin an in flux of fresh beats to set the mood for you to move and mingle among the city's next crop of celebrated creators. 

 

Jonathon Anderson

Assistant Professor of Interior Design at Ryerson University. His work explores how industrial manufacturing and CNC technologies influence the design and making processes. As a result, the work is characterized by innovative and explorative methods that result in interconnected design, fine art, and technology solutions. To Jonathon, making is not only a practice but a form of critical thinking.

Dave Kemp is an Assistant Professor of Image Arts and a visual artist whose practice looks at the intersections and interactions between art, science and technology: particularly at how these fields shape our perception and understanding of the world.

Adrian Kenny is the Workshop Technologist in Ryerson’s School of Interior Design. Adrian has worked at the boutique studio Prototype Design Lab and has collaborated on projects ranging from restaurants, nightclubs, home construction, furniture, and installations.

Artemis Han is currently an editor at RADmagazine and part of the RSID's fourth year-end show committee. Artemis strives to continually learn and search for inspiration through experimentation along with new methods of innovation.

 

Kayley Mullings is currently an interior design intern at Studio Munge and entering her fourth year at RSID. Her growing interests are new methods of innovation in fabrication and technologies along with how users interact and behave in their spatial environments.

William Reive is a recent graduate of RSID and in September will begin a Masters of Architecture at the University of British Columbia. William's interest includes digital fabrication and making the interior and exterior a holistic space.

Janine Yeung is a recent graduate from RSID. Throughout her undergraduate career, she has exhibited at the Interior Design Show (IDS), received numerous internal awards within the University and has been successful in student design competitions (IIDEX, KPMG). Janine hopes to continue her pursuit and career in a practice that combines her passion for visual communication and design.
