Hart Lazer

Hart Lazer has been teaching and training Yoga teachers for more than 30 years. 

Something of a cultural hybrid, he thrives in the alchemy distilled in the hatha yoga traditions including Iyengar and Ashtanga systems. Hart’s current teaching contains an emphasis on meditation, derived through the study of zen, Tibetan, and Buddhist practices. Using a tailored and multi-faceted approach, his intention is to guxide individuals in their understanding of themselves, and despite the challenges of life, to do so with ease and enjoyment. 

Hart’s major influences in his life and teaching are Ramanand Patel and Ken McCleod.

Being the co-founder of United Yoga Montreal gives Hart a home base from which he teaches nationally and internationally.
