While critics laud Canadian-imported comedians, crooners, and hockey stars, Canada is also known for the liberal scientific-workout ethics that gave birth to a genetically engineered exercise more useful than square watermelons and seedless squares. Spynga is a hybrid exercise species of Canadian origin that combines the slow, focused poses and stretching of yoga with the heart-thumping intensity of cardio spinning. The two exercises are not performed simultaneously, as severe and violent tangling would be unavoidable; instead, they are performed one after the other. The skilled and motivational instructors at Buddhaful coach students through a stationary-bike session, revving hearts up to a maximum beating point. This calorie-burning workout is immediately followed by a yoga mat session on the studio's expansive hardwood floor. Muscles, joints, and tendons pushed to their limit by the bike session are stretched and relaxed, easing post-workout pain and tension while aiding in the development of core strength. The studio also offers classes that concentrate solely on yoga or spinning if students prefer to master the techniques separately before attempting a double major. Classes are offered daily; check the schedule and call to reserve a space.

The two-wheeled emporium proffers bikes from Biria, Rocky Mountain, and Miele, among other well-known brands, and delights in fixing up ailing cycles of any make, whether they need a tune-up or complete rebuild.
Atma Center's classes reflect the techniques of Satyananda yoga, a combination of classic yoga traditions adroitly adapted to accommodate the needs of modern and futuristic persons, no matter their age or fitness level. It is also a teacher-training program, so you can be sure Atma's highly trained instructors have accumulated many a hour of individualized in-class wisdom and successfully squeezed through the awfully tight yoga-instructor rites of passage (pass-throughable by only the nimblest and most compassionate of bodies).
