Yoga Tree Vaughan

Yoga tree is a chain of yoga studios down town Toronto, Richmond Hill, and Vaughan. I have been going to the Yoga Tree Vaughan location for the past month.

The Studio beautiful and spacious. They have a very nice open sitting area for before and after class where you can enjoy some complimentary hot herbal and green tea. The locker room is spacious with showers available for after class. Towels for class and mats can be rented, but towels for the showers cannot.

The Classes

You do not have to worry about signing up online before class, they leave spots open for walk ins and I have never had a problem finding a spot.  I signed up for their 30 days unlimited intro for $40 so have had a chance to try out a bunch of their classes. My favourite teacher at the studio is Jen, she teaches a more challenging class where you feel like you really worked at the end. I am usually sore after her classes and I love the feeling of being sore! Jen also teaches a free Lululemon Community Class on Fridays at Yoga Tree at 6:45 pm. Check our Lululemon Vaughan Mills Facebook Page for updates on their community class locations.

Yoga Tree Vaughan has two classrooms, “fire” is the Hot Yoga room and “Flow” is for all other classes. They have a reduced heat class too, great for someone that has never done a hot class before! The reduced heat is 28 Celsius, still really warm and you still get sweaty but it is not as sweltering as a full fledge hot class.

I will definitely continue coming to this studio even after my intro package is expired!

Iam Hot Yoga Toronto

Iam Hot Yoga Toronto

Iam yoga offers a large selection of hot yoga classes including flow, core, meditation, I even saw a “Hangover Hatha” class on the schedule offered on Sunday mornings! Iam Yoga is located on Yonge St just south of bloor. I Had received a flyer at an event for a free yoga class here a few months ago but never  managed to go until now. Every new client gets their first yoga class for free or one week unlimited for $20, I chose the free option. After your first class drop in classes are $20 each or $160 for one month unlimited and various other packages.

The Studio

The studio consisted of one large hot yoga room, a common area and change rooms. Everything was spacious and clean (I always like clean 🙂 ). They really did a nice job when they designed the studio and they take care of it well. You can rent towels or a mat for $1 and buy water if you need it. There was a lot of people hanging out in the common area when you first walk in that must have either just finished the last class or were about to start the next one, sitting on the couch and chairs. Everyone was hanging out and chatting with each other. The whole studio had a very friendly vibe, there seemed to be a lot of regulars.

Class

All classes are hot but the class I attended was a detox flow, taught by Juliana Belinko. Detox yoga classes involve a lot of twisting poses that improve circulation and functioning of the lymphatic system. I could tell that Juliana was a very experienced teacher, her class was one of the best I have been to. I felt the class was very challenging but I was still able to keep up. Towards the end of the class I could feel my heart beating so fast and the sweat was building up on my mat I wanted to take a break but I kept going. Sometimes during a hot class I don’t feel like I got enough of a workout as I would have liked to get but this class was perfect. My core felt really sore the next day proving that I worked hard.

I would really like to go back to this studio and try another one of their classes from the big selection. I will post any updates I have on the studio once I go back.

You can view Iam Hot Yoga’s schedule and read more about the studio on their website: http://iamyoga.ca/

As always any yoga class is open to yogis of all levels.

Moksha Yoga Aurora

Moksha Yoga Aurora

moksha yoga aurora review

I have had some requests for a review on a Yoga studio North of the City. Over the weekend I had the chance to attend a 90 minute Moksha Yoga class in Aurora, at 9 am on a Sunday I was probably the youngest one there! The standard Moksha Yoga class is done in the hot studio.

Studio

This studio in Aurora was beautiful and super spacious! Especially compared to other yoga studios downtown. I love a clean spacious yoga studio because sometimes they can feel cramped and stuffy especially after a hot class when everyone is in one small change room.

Class
I found the class to be very serious, an excellent workout and stretch for my body but very serious.
The room was very large with not too many people in the class which I liked, I had some space between me and the surrounding Yogis. I liked the temperature of the class, it was hot enough for me to break into a good sweat but not overwhelming. The teacher did a really nice job instructing where to go and what to do next without doing all the poses with us.

There is a $40 two week intro unlimited pass if it is your first time to the studio – a great way to try a few different classes and teachers before signing up for the full price unlimited pass.

You can check out Moksha Yoga in Aurora’s website at http://aurora.mokshayoga.ca sign up for online classes, read about news, and their community.
