CyberGolf Lessons' duo of veteran instructors smoothes out swings and divulges birdie-hunting wisdom at the Markham Golf Dome. The score-shaving syndicate pairs human expertise with modern golf refinements, utilizing video swing analysis that provides golfers with a visual aid to better understand instructors' feedback and determine their sand wedge's good side. After lessons, pupils have access to a Swingview!

CyberGolf also doles out rental clubs free of charge for use during lessons, saving beginners the hassle of buying new clubs or inventing the self-hitting golf ball.
Founder Kristina Udegbunam leads a team of dance instructors from different backgrounds who specialize in disciplines ranging from lyrical dance to pole classes. The studio also branches out to yoga classes and visual-arts programs.
In a hot room covered in Himalayan salt, yoga practitioners strike poses and breathe deep, feeling suddenly as if they have been transported to a waterfall or a mountain top after a rainstorm. Rebirth Yoga studio added Himalayan salt to their hot yoga room because numerous fans credit the coral-hued crystals with releasing negative ions, the same ions that make the air feel so crisp after a rainstorm. Himalayan salt’s negative ions help purify the air and bring it into optimal iconic balance, which is said to restore health and wellness to those who spend time in the salt’s presence. Infrared heat warms the salt room, allowing muscles to relax and become more flexible, as friendly, experienced instructors guide practitioners into each twist and pose. Other classes include room-temperature fitness sessions such as Pilates, dumbbell-assisted yoga, Zumba, and bootcamp.
The studio also offers specialty services focused on childbirth, such as prenatal and childbirth classes, doula services, and fertility yoga. And in addition to leading sessions, instructors train students to become yoga instructors, Yoga Birth Method practitioners, and even doulas themselves.

Bolstering existing beauty remains a spa specialty, but Impressions' team of RMTs also perfects the art of stress erasing through treatments such as Swedish massage, which can help relieve trauma resulting from having a quarter painfully extracted from an ear by a street magician.
At R3 Evolution Fitness Studio, owner Crystal Mallari and her team of fitness professionals are concerned with strengthening the mind and spirit as much as the body, and their classes reflect that.

Complementing matters, Mallari, who holds certifications for several fitness disciplines, is also a precision nutrition coach, meaning she can inform clients on what to eat and where to send thank you cards to the Green Giant.
