"Not your typical yoga studio" - we offer Hatha (all levels, including beginners), Yin, Restorative, Kundalini, Somatics, Meditation, "Special" Seniors (using chair support), Kids & Teens, Mom & Baby, PLUS Zumba, "ABS", Hips and Core classes AND a Bellydancing series on Friday nights! Aches and pains? we've got Reiki, Thai Massage and PEMF (by appt).
After seven glorious years, we're growing stronger and bigger every day because we also have THE BEST instructors in the GTA and we're open 7 days a week with almost FIFTY classes to choose from. The option of wine after class, or just relaxing in the lounge is a definite bonus. We believe that people are freer to be their most authentic selves when balancing wellness with some of life's more enjoyable indulgences.
Our unique combination of Yoga & Wine - although never wine before yoga - is our wink and nod to the yin and yang of life; to the well and the wicked; to the beauty and authenticity of imperfection that is, in fact, perfect. Our vision is to be recognized as a joyful gathering place that nurtures self-acceptance and balance.
We created this beautiful space filled with unique energy for you. A place that is revitalizing, inviting, peaceful, inclusive, and welcoming.
Join us to relax, unwind, indulge, have fun, feel good, glow, inspire others and change the world. Or... Just come and do some yoga while enjoying the lounge!
We are also proud to be founding members of the recently organized HIGHLAND CREEK VILLAGE BUSINESS ASSOCIATION, encouraging you to SHOP LOCALLY!

10th Radiant Body
The human body is made up of ten bodies: the physical, three mental and six energy. Visualize your various bodies as layers of clothing, the physical body being the overcoat you wear for a lifetime. We can see, feel and touch the physical but the other bodies are equally real (if not more so). When all of the bodies are in balance we are in a state of pure consciousness. Each of the bodies manifests with a strength, a gift - when it's in balance, BUT when out of balance weaknesses appear.
P.E.M.F. THERAPY - We can help you make this happen for yourself and your family! What we've learned is that this therapy works best if it's done daily. EMAIL us so we can hook you up...
Here are just a few of the benefits:
- enhances and supports the body's ability to heal and de-stress
- increases energy, vitality and productivity
- promotes anti-aging by minimizing the negative effects of cell towers, cell phones, wifi, computers & microwaves)
We STILL do $20/session or $80 for 5 sessions - this unique healing method uses pulsating electromagnetic fields - it's a bed, you lie on it for 8 to 10 minutes and just relax, as your cells regenerate and your body feels renewed and invigorated. Email Suse to make an appointment: email@example.com
