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.

At Puck’s Farm, visitors can bond with 180 acres of the natural environment by learning about harvest-time chores and activities or scheduling weddings and events year-round on the open grounds. Guests of the farm can meet its animal residents, including emus, llamas, and a farm cat, which is much friendlier than a farm puma. For an even more interactive experience with fauna, Puck’s offers pony rides and the opportunity to milk cows and churn butter. Wooded trails traverse the expanse and present one of the many places on the farm where guests can delight in the changing of the seasons. Fall, for example, offers a variety of seasonal activities: visitors can get lost in corn mazes, pick ripened pumpkins, ride in horse-drawn wagons, and stroll through trails speckled with changing leaves. Autumn months also see pigs and goats building their nests for the winter ahead. An onsite snack bar serving hot dogs, hamburgers, and french fries enables guests to refuel for full days of farm activities.

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.

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.

As the sun rises over Caledon’s rolling hills, the horses of Forest Hill Training Centre Inc. whinny impatiently in their stables. In just a few hours, the clopping of their hooves will echo across the facility’s arena as instructors lead new riders through private or semi-private lessons. Anchored to a rural patch of land on Toronto’s outskirts, the facility, which opened in 2009, attracts plenty of city dwellers with dreams of galloping through open fields. Those who make the 30-minute drive from the city will find a riding experience tailored to suit their goals and abilities.

If Forest Hill’s instructors seem uncommonly skilled at the reins, they have Scott and Dee Walker, who have been active professionals since 1989, to thank. The couple opened their first state-of-the-art “show barn” in 1992, and they have since developed a highly successful system of helping riders of all levels achieve their potential. Whether you hope to compete on the professional circuit or simply want to take advantage of the Horses Only parking space at work, they can tweak the training program to fit your needs. In addition, the facility offers horse-showing lessons and camps.
