My name is Yasmin Fudakowska-Gow. I am yoga teacher of more than 20 years and an accredited naturopathic doctor (ND) specializing in ayurvedic medicine. I am also a mom, writer, speaker, world traveller and brand ambassador for several incredible companies, including Arbonne International.
Montreal born & raised, I speak English and French (often simultaneously) and a little Polish (my mother is Polish). Over the last two decades, I’ve had the honour of teaching yoga around the world and training a huge spectrum of people: professional athletes, celebrities, CEOs as well as toddlers, teens and people in wheelchairs.
What I am known for
Breaking a Guinness World Record
Acclaimed Yoga Videos
High Quality Yoga Teacher Training Programs
Innovative Yoga Workshops
Loft108 is a beautiful 2000 square foot studio on St Paul Street in the heart of Old Montreal. I love to travel but it’s here that I create, write, innovate and teach. Loft108 is also my ayurvedic clinic where I offer consultations and workshops. When it’s not being used for any of the above, we host other teachers, conferences, social gatherings, even weddings, including my own!

Fast forward, I feel greatly privileged to have made a living teaching yoga and Ayurveda for all these years. I am a mom of two kiddos, Koji, who is in elementary school and Mika, a busy toddler.
Being a mother has definitely enriched my teaching and naturopathy practice. My intuition is stronger, I am more grounded and more inspired and creative than ever. I feel like I am boiling over with experience and a deeper, calmer insight into the practice. It’s a pleasure for me to teach and share from this place because I know the information and wisdom that was passed down to me benefits others as much or more as it has benefitted me and my family.
Thank you for your interest in my journey. Looking forward to sharing a practice with you soon.
