Looking for how to get your creative juices flowing again? Toronto’s health and wellness options will get you back to your best self in a heartbeat.
Be prepared to get your sweat on at this downtown Toronto yoga studio. The name “Iam” comes from the Greek word for “to be present,” and this philosophy is ingrained in every element of the challenging yoga practices offered throughout the day. Instructors draw from traditional and modern concepts of yoga, pilates and mindfulness, offering a selection of classes like Core Flow, Detox Flow, and Yin yoga. Half of the classes take place in a heated room, where you can sweat away toxins and warm up on a cool autumn day. For serious practitioners, regular workshops with themes like “Beats and Bliss” and “The Low-Stress Workshop” will take you to the next level.
If you need a dose of calm from the comfort of your own hotel room, this interactive website offers tools like videos, online meditation courses and other resources to help you find your peace. The site also provides information on free meditation classes in downtown Toronto, held every Sunday evening, as well as meditation events, vegetarian recipes and more. The site invites viewers to relax, review and reflect, becoming aware of the benefits of meditation that go beyond stress relief and improved mindfulness to a joyful state of self-realization.
While late nights and busy days can take their toll, these health and wellness options will remind you to take a deep breath and start your day afresh.
