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.

Golfers of all skill levels can enhance skills and lower scores at The Golf Lab, where high-end technology scrutinizes swing mechanics and pinpoints areas for improvement. During video swing-analysis sessions, one of Golf Lab's head teaching pros diagnoses swing maladies and breaks down each shot in slow motion video so pupils can better understand corrective advice and contemplate the fleeting nature of real-time. Swing-tracking technology boils the pendulous artistry of each drive to a quantifiable science, so instructors draw from precise, empirical data to support their conclusions on how players can avoid score-mangling slices, snap-hooks, and shanks.

Aspiring aces can augment knowledge gleaned from each lesson during mat time at The Golf Lab's indoor hitting bays, where premium range balls willfully make themselves casualties in the creation of crucial muscle memory. Each mat boasts radar swing-analysis technology and instant video playback, allowing players to correct swings based on observation rather than the outmoded strategy of using 9-irons as swords and duelling opponents.

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.
