"I now use many of the noninvasive medical services I offer at my clinics to fight the aging process. I have personally never felt or looked better and I am now in my forties," says Eleanor Welsh, founder of Skin Vitality Medical Clinic.

Their skill with beauty injectables comes from extensive training from Allergan and other pharmaceutical companies, giving them the deft ability to leave clients' faces more youthful than a rosebud in a sippy cup.

The fitness instructors at 2 B Fit Training Studio hail from diverse backgrounds. Some have spent most of their lives stretching into the core-strengthening poses of yoga and Pilates, while others have earned certifications in physical therapy and wellness counseling.

Yoga Tree teaches multidisciplinary yoga to students of all skill levels in a soothing spa atmosphere. Each of its three locations offer heated and nonheated studios and employ environmentally friendly practices.

Hot-yoga classes, conducted in a room heated to 38 degrees Celsius, promote detoxification and deeper stretching. Each studio's neutral, earthy colour schemes are accented with recessed lighting, plants, and an energetic Spaniard to envelop students in architect-tailored yoga vibes.
