If Trish Stratus had continued to pursue her dreams of becoming a doctor, would she have ever performed a flying leg drop from the top turnbuckle? Maybe on her lunch break, but that wasn’t the way things played out for the seven-time WWE champion. While studying biology at York University, an unforeseen faculty strike indirectly led Status toward her wrestling and modelling career. After several years in the athletic and entertainment businesses, she eventually retired in 2006, discovering that her pursuits left her with a herniated disc. While seeking rehabilitation, Trish re-discovered yoga. It was this ancient practice that allowed Stratus a way to keep the pain at bay before finally giving it the boot for good.

Today, Stratus shares that discovery with others within the earthy-hued walls of her 5,200 square foot eco-friendly facility. She divides her sleek space into three separate practice areas specifically designed for each level of her three-tiered program, entitled spirit (beginner), shape (intermediate), and strength (advanced). She and her team of passionate yogis lead these classes atop joint friendly cork floors and ensure a clean practice space by regularly sanitizing the studio with biodegradable cleaning products. Click here for a virtual tour of the facility.

In addition to taking yoga classes, visitors can partake in Zumba and Pilates classes or stop by for regular workshops that focus on topics such as meditation and kids' yoga. Guests may also spend some alone time in the lounge where they can kick back and read a selection of material from the yoga library.

Workout buddies Guylaine and Rina founded their yoga studio on the central idea of creating a space where people can centre their minds amid a calming, social atmosphere. Autumnal notes of orange and cool, dark purples accent the polished hardwood floors and loft ceilings, and a lounge invites visitors to stay and chat in plush semicircular easy chairs while they wait in vain for marshmallows to roast in the roaring digital fireplace. Students fine-tune their bodies during a diverse range of yoga and Pilates classes, such as hot power yoga, Pilates Body Sculpt, Yogalates, and hot Pilates. The studio also hosts specialized workshops that include yoga for teens and a class for students new to yoga.

NASCAR SpeedPark thrills speedsters of all ages with five go-kart tracks and a variety of indoor and outdoor rides, plus an arcade, laser-tag arena, climbing wall, and indoor playground all operated on a ticket or wristband system. Race courses include The Qualifier, a 100-foot starter track for kids at least 40 inches tall (two tickets), and the Mini Motor Speedway, where drivers at least 64 inches tall and 16 years old drive 5/8-scale Sprint Cup cars (five tickets). Other tracks include the polished slick-track Slidewayz (three tickets) and the Family 500 (three tickets) pairing parents and tykes in double-seater go-karts before they begin discussions about career choices.

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. The Richmond Hill centre's 12-foot plant wall aids in naturally filtering indoor air and the evil thoughts of passing strangers. More than 90 classes stretched through each week manifest in variations on traditional Hatha yoga, exercising floor and balancing postures to focus on strength, flexibility, and stamina. Practitioners can also pay close attention to their precise muscular and skeletal alignment during Iyengar classes, as the teacher focuses on alignment and inner awareness. 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. Toronto's downtown location opens in late March 2011.

The technicians tap the Soprano XL cosmetic laser system to erase everything from stubble and acne scars to age spots and stubborn ketchup stains. Volume-enhancing mink eyelash extensions, chip-resistant Shellac polishes, and skin-smoothing microdermabrasion wands round out the spa's arsenal.

The instructors at Spin Kicks are lifelong fitness enthusiasts who have experience in pursuits ranging from marathon running to competitive sports to, of course, cycling. The team brings its enthusiasm to the members at Spin Kicks, leading cycling classes while perched atop RealRyder stationary bikes that tilt and turn as if cruising down mountain paths. The realistic bike movements activate core muscles as students pedal in rhythm and teachers encourage them to go faster and push themselves harder. In addition to the indoor classes, the instructors lead outdoor cycling clubs in warmer months, as well as manage a bike shop that treats bicycles to repairs, tune-ups, and tire-tread readings.
