Yoga has a history at Academy. When we opened our doors 8 years ago, we offered Yoga classes specifically programmed for the athletic & lifestyle needs of our members. We later transitioned our flexibility and mobility practice to aptly named classes along with incorporating it into many of our classes.

But, with the growing needs of our members we're bringing back a specific Yoga class... done our way, of course. 



Our programming is built around giving members a compliment to their other training, CrossFitting, Weightlifting, Running, MetConing etc. Because our members receive their exercise from other things, LionYoga will focus on:

  • restoring the body from training and improving recovery/soreness 
  • creating better alignment and structure within the body to help members CrossFit, Lift, Run, MetCon & complete in sports better
  • target soft tissues and joints to improve range of motion under loads
  • form form form 



  • Mondays 6:30-7:30pm / Alignment, Structure & Restoration for Athletes / Kate Evans


  • Wednesdays 6:30-7:30pm / Flow, Form, Activation & Soft Tissue Work / Cassandra Batts 


+ Bring Your Own Mat....but, if you don't have one we'll lend you one at the Front Desk.

Cassandra Batts

Cassandra has had a passion for movement ever since she was introduced to yoga at age 11. She has been teaching yoga throughout Toronto for the last 8 years. She has recently completed her 500 hour advanced yoga training at Yogaspace.  Cassandra’s teaching style is down-to-earth with an emphasis on building strength in the practice. She believes that taking the time to slow down and use Restorative postures helps ease students into opening their bodies in a healthy way. 

Cassandra started weight training as a very flexible yogi, and quickly learned it would be a long journey to building the necessary strength in her body to do the lifts safely and with the correct technique. Her experience as a mobility practitioner in a clinical setting alongside her yoga teaching experience has allowed her to gain comprehensive understanding of the mobility and flexibility needs of athletes within the Academy community.



Kate Evens


Kate loves working with athletes who are looking to enhance performance, prevent injury, and find balance in their lives. She has worked with competitive athletes, including runners, and national team climbers, and writes weekly articles for Canadian Running Magazine and Gripped Climbing Magazine.

She understands the importance of taking care of the body and mind, while juggling an active lifestyle.   Kate feels strongly about using yoga and meditation to compliment athletic training. She focuses on movement in a mindful way, helping athletes to be more in tune with their bodies, promoting recovery, improving mental focus  and helping ensure injuries are prevented. 

Kate Evans is Registered Nurse (BScN, RN) and a graduate of Yogaspace’s Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) 200 hour Hatha/Vinyasa Yoga Instructor Certification. She is currently working towards her 500 hour advanced teacher training certification.
