BAM School Mission

Body Art Motion School of Transformation applies ancient wisdom to modern functionality for personal growth and lifestyle enhancement through yoga education, tribal fusion bellydance, holistic transformation programs, and community connection.

Our mission is to simplify complex formulas into functional programs that are easy-to-follow and adopt into your daily life.  We offer educational courses, weekly classes, guided group programs and retreats.

BAM has friends in many places, from fitness models in magazines, to athletes in fight cages and from tribal bellydancers to yogis in ashrams.  One common thread between us is a desire to be strong, healthy, and free, and to study our mind/body to create, discover and express ourselves.  

We aim to reach beyond temporary results, routines that wear you down and extreme diets that starve the soul. This is a journey about what you sculpt for yourself and it starts with how you relate to yourself – how you feel physically and mentally.



YOGA immersions & certification

Body Art Motion is a registered school with the International Yoga Alliance.  We are passionate about applying the ancient wisdom of yoga to modern lifestyles. We value individuation - that everyone find their own genuine path in yoga, and that yoga is for everyone, no matter your level of flexibility or "inner calm".  We see the system of yoga as a powerful and logical science of personal contentment. We offer an annual 200hr Yoga Teacher Training program and weekend immersions throughout the year for both certified yoga teachers and the general public who have interest in studying the philosophy of yoga as it applies to personal transformation.

tribal fusion bellydance classes

We love Tribal Fusion Belly Dance as a form of mental and physical fitness, as well as a positive way to connect with a beautiful community of humans!  BAM is one of only two certified Unmata Hot Pot ITS (Improvisational Tribal Style by Amy Sigil) schools in Canada.  We teach both ITS and Tribal Fusion Bellydance through weekly classes and workshops.
