There's No Place Like Om
Om West is the West Island's longest running yoga studio. It is owned by Antoine Tinawi and Pamela Gooria who have been studying yoga, meditation and mindfulness for over 2 decades under the direct guidance of one of India's most renowned spiritual masters Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Antoine and Pamela are eternally grateful for the knowledge they have received and their inspiration for running Om West is to share back with the community the powerful benefits they have experienced from establishing themselves in a yoga practice and its corresponding lifestyle.
Om West is a school of yoga offering certified and internationally recognized teacher training programs and contributing to building the next generation of outstanding yoga teachers. As an Om West member, you can enjoy over 20 different styles of yoga to suit your objectives. Our team of 20+ teachers is inspiring, talented, experienced, and diverse, with each teacher bringing in their personal style while sharing their common passion for the practice of yoga.
Our massage therapy, osteopathy and acupuncture services are offered by a team of 15 certified registered therapists who master their art and who are dedicated to tailor their approach to your needs for maximum therapeutic benefits.
Om West is a labour of love. Thank you for your presence at the Centre. You are at the core of the thriving community we are building together each day.

Work at Om West
Om West is always looking for certified yoga teachers and registered therapists (massage, osteopathy, acupuncture) who are talented and passionate about what they do. If you have something to offer, don't hesitate to contact us, we would love to hear from you.
Volunteer at Om West
Karma Yoga, the path of selfless service, is one of the most fulfilling and life transforming branches of yoga. Om West owners Antoine and Pamela have practised Karma Yoga for years in the form of volunteer work prior to becoming the owners of Om West and the experience has been one of the pillars of their spiritual growth. We invite you to experience the power of Karma Yoga by volunteering a bit of time at the Centre once per week in whatever way you feel fit. We will be glad to return the favour with access to our yoga classes.
For decades, Om West has been known for its community involvement. Currently, the studio is offering free weekly classes as well as numerous community events allowing people to meet in a spirit of celebration. Some of our events support important causes while others are simply there to enjoy quality time with one another.
