The first master yogis bent themselves like twist-ties around their enemies, smothering them with relaxing vibes. Now that all of your human and animal enemies are dead or in exile, today's Groupon offers a chance to defeat work-related stress: for $49, you get 10 classes at Stratusphere Yoga (a $203 value, including tax) in Vaughan. Though Stratusphere is a membership-based studio, today's Groupon gives commitment phobes a glimpse inside the studio's shimmering, exclusive walls.
The pristine, 5,200-square-foot multi-disciplinary yoga studio offers an eclectic selection of classes and convenient schedule to accommodate yogi aspirants of all levels. Your Groupon is good for any 10 classes at the studio, so you can try out an assortment of yoga styles or stick with a known favourite. Ease into a fast-paced day with the slow-flow gentle course, a foundation-building class that helps newbies master the essentials of the practice. Or, opt for an energizing power-hour to experience a blend of yoga styles in a quick and invigorating workout free of bears. Pilates, prenatal, hot power yoga, hot knitting, and vigorous ashtanga courses are also available at Stratusphere, and the friendly and experienced staff creates a cozy environment for practitioners of all skill levels to seek solace and perfect their pretzelian poses.
The sleek studio is the picture of a comfortable and inviting space, and its sofa’d lounge and fully stocked library of good reads offer a relaxing respite from the hustle, bustle, and egg-rains of the outside world. A model of environmental thoughtfulness, the eco-friendly studio incorporates cushioned cork floors, low-voltage lighting, and a band of hard-working corgis who clean the studio with green-certified disinfectant. Seize this opportunity to get body and mind into shape, or gift this Groupon to a stressed scholar studying for a fast-approaching standardized test.
Stratusphere founder Trish Stratus and her studio have received a great deal of press, including features by ET Canada and Wee Reporters. Four Yelpers give it a 4.5-star average, and it has more than 1,200 Facebook fans:
Stratusphere Yoga Studio
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.

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.
