Our Story

White Space Mind and Body Wellness Studio was born out of two women's desires to create a safe, beautiful and nurturing space in which people could discover the transformative power of yoga and mindfulness.

Shortly after completing their 200 hour yoga teacher training in May 2011, White Space Wellness founders Abbey Rivadelo and Eileen Tupaz were clear that they had found their life's calling. Equipped with nothing more than their passion and their vision, the two partners opened White Space Wellness in June 2012. Today, the studio offers over 45 classes weekly on yoga, pilates, meditation and a variety of other disciplines.

Whether you're looking to strengthen and stretch your body, calm and center your mind, or even heal and soothe your soul, we have something to offer you. We focus on meeting people where they are and in giving them the guidance, support and community that they need to take their wellness journeys in the direction that they want to go. And we do so with a faculty that's passionate about their disciplines and committed to their students.

Our Studio

White Space Wellness' studio has been designed to embody its intention to be home to a thriving community of happy and healthy people whose lives have been profoundly transformed by yoga and other mindfulness-based practices.

Asana Rooms

Aptly named Vitality, Harmony and Serenity, our three asana rooms are equipped with laminate wooden floors and floor-to-ceiling windows that afford a beautiful view of the surrounding Loyola Heights district. The rooms are partitioned by mobile dividers that allow the studio to combine all three rooms to create one integrated space. Our rooms create an ideal setting not just for yoga and mindfulness-based pursuits, but even for photo and video shoots!

Healing Room

Named Tranquility, our healing room comes equipped with a massage table, folding chairs, a sound system and mood lighting conducive to carrying out various wellness-related services. Our most popular modalities include Reiki healing, Oracle or Tarot Card reading, private meditation sessions and private pranayama sessions. Appointments for these and other modalities can be booked with our Front Desk.

Locker and Shower Rooms

Our studio's packages include complimentary use of our locker, toilet, shower and dressing room facilities. The showers come equipped with water heaters and all washroom areas are provided with shampoo, body wash and hand wash. Our facilities make it easy for students to move on to their next appointment feeling completely refreshed and reinvigorated!

Lounge and Library Areas

A sofa and a number of benches and seats line various areas of our studio, allowing students to rest at ease while waiting for their class to start. Yoga, mindfulness and wellness books and magazines are also available for the reading public at various locations in the studio.
