Each member of Bikram Yoga Canada’s talented team of instructors possesses a sage yogic know-how borne of their participation in a 10-week certification course taught by Bikram Choudhury in California. Over the course of this rigorous program, the posing pedagogues learned the essentials of heated movement modality, spending hours stuffing their brains with wisdom ranging from yoga philosophy and anatomy to a detailed study of each pose. While the world-renowned course provides the team with an unshakable foundation, the instructors—firm believers that learning is a never-ending endeavour—undergo re-certification every three years to ensure that they remain abreast of current practices. With this impeccably trained and passionate staff at the helm of every sweat-inducing class, Bikram Yoga Canada offers students of all experience levels a chance to experience the physical detoxification afforded by stretching sessions within their balmy studio. During each class, the instructors put their hard-earned teaching skills into practice as they lead pupils through a series of 26 postures, known as asanas, designed to warm and stretch muscles, ligaments, and tendons while melting away tension and the frozen dinners stored in the hearts of pupils.

Sustainable lifestyle choices, environmental consciousness, and building a sense of community: these are a few of the pillars upon which Moksha Yoga is built. The architect is Ted Grand, who drew from 12 years of training under yoga masters including Bikram Choudhury and Acharya Yoganand to develop his own special technique. Moksha's focus on clearing the mind of distractions, detoxifying the body through sweat, and building powerful core musculature can help practitioners overcome everyday obstacles from managing arthritis or stress to sliding out of tight crawlspaces. Moksha Yoga?s 75 studios operate under the caring supervision of a professional teaching staff. Their diverse backgrounds not only include years of yoga study, but also apprenticeships under Nobel Peace Prize winners and careers with Amnesty International. Both instructors and students are encouraged to share their positive philosophy off the mat as well: the company supports several charitable endeavours, and its studios are powered by renewable energy sources.

Wooden accent panels line Fitness Connection's entryway, welcoming guests to burn fat and build muscle with the spacious studio’s rows upon rows of equipment. Guests melt stress in group classes or on cardio and weight-training equipment while joggers torch calories on treadmills as they step in time with playlists via the machine-mounted iPod docks or tune into TV shows on personal viewing screens. In one-on-one sessions, guests can glean toning tips from certified personal trainers, who calculate target heart rates and demonstrate how to use the exercise equipment. A modern locker room invites post-workout relaxation with a eucalyptus steam room, which is unfortunately free of baby pandas, and a juice bar restores energy levels with fresh fruit smoothies.

At Wynn Fitness Clubs, exercise isn’t about altering how the body looks. It’s about changing clients for the better from the inside out. Here, during group and one-on-one training, fitness experts pair encouraging words with adaptable exercises involving dumbbells, kettlebells, Selectorized weight machines, and functional movements such as pushing and balancing. In addition to bolstering the body, these programs strengthen the will to achieve, propelling exercisers toward goals faster than an espresso-fuelled hockey puck. Calming fitness classes such as yoga and Pilates unite the mind and body with deep stretches, focused core exercises, and measured-breathing techniques. Club members can torch calories with solo sessions on the clubs’ cardio machines or during boot camps, cycling routines, and Zumba dance parties that cultivate friendships while boosting energy and endurance. Post-workout, spa-like locker rooms and couch-lined cafés invite exercisers to relax and recharge.
