At Asana Yoga & Massage, trained instructors guide yogis of all ages and ability levels through a packed schedule of diverse yoga practices. Gentle yoga introduces students to movements as simple and flowing as a gown made of pixie tears to evict aches and pains from the body and empty overloaded stress receptacles. During the fast-paced Vinyasa flow, pupils delve into an ever-changing roster of postures, linking deep stretches to slow breaths, or adults can sample restorative kripalu flow classes, which train torsos to shimmy their way toward muscle definition as well as improved posture and coordination.
In 2008, Kim White, Mikey Jollimore, Melissa Desroche, and Melissa Fox all had an epiphany: a group of great friends plus unique talents equals an ideal business opportunity. So they combined their skills for hairstyling, nail art, and body treatments, such as massage and waxing, and opened Allure Hair Lounge. Their team also applies lash extensions and makeup and abolishes unwanted body fuzz with FDA-approved IPL hair removal.
S-T Natural Medicine Centre's team of skilled acupuncturists pairs with students from the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine to help move clients toward improved health. Using acupuncture, acupressure, and other techniques, the staff helps harness the body's energy flow, channelling and directing it in ways that can improve the patron's overall level of wellness.
Licensed aesthetician Christina Monahan delivers services including massage and body polishing, soothing muscles and quiets minds plagued by memories of disco B-sides during the one-hour relaxation massage, glazing skin in either organic ginger or geranium oil to enhance bodywork. After expunging corporeal tension, Monahan buffs off dull skin cells using professional-grade products including a wild French lavender sugar scrub. Freshly exfoliated epidermises are then nourished with a moisturizer and a reading from Chicken Soup for the Soul. Upon booking, buyers can enhance the massage by adding aromatherapy for $10 or a skin-balancing back treatment for $15.
The Béo Spa team strives to provide guests with the best in aesthetic, hair, and fitness services, helping clients feel healthy in their skin no matter what the approach. The aesthetic team enhances faces with skin-clearing facials or makeup applications, or else soothes shoulders with back massages. Stylists offer haircuts, coloring treatments, and swift waxing sessions. Rounding out the spa team, fitness instructors lead yoga classes that help guests improve their flexibility and balance.
Certified Zumba fitness instructor Celine Gabrielle motivates students of all ages and abilities as they hasten heart rates with easy-to-follow dance moves backed by Latin beats. In each one-hour Zumba class, slow rhythms alternate with fast tempos to burn hundreds of calories and confuse gathering flash mobs, and resistance training helps exercisers sculpt muscles. Pupils groove to international music and tone up with interval training moves while the experienced instructor demonstrates steps and keeps workouts on track. Students should send a telegram to their feet encouraging them to wear cross-training or aerobic-style shoes that can accommodate the class's sliding, turning, and side-to-side movements.
