Pure Yoga first caught our eye with their very cool, very inclusive company ethos. They want to share their passion for yoga with every body, shape, size, age, and status; employed, or between jobs, student, or retiree, single or divorcee, mother, father, grandparent – you get the idea. LOVE that. The space itself is premium and vibrant, and the hot yoga classes were challenging and actually FUN - which is not usually the first adjective I'd use to describe a yoga class.
Stax Cycle Club has a reputation for having some of the best instructors in the city and for being one of the most approachable, and we are so happy to say that our experience did not disappoint. This very simple spin studio has the most interesting layout that we've been to yet, and their iconic blue hued spin room will make you feel like your at a rave circa 1992. Probably the biggest thing to note about Stax though, is that they have the lowest prices we've ever seen that include all amenities like spin shoes, towel service and steam room access. These guys are quite literally giving other spin studios a serious run for their money.
Lifestyle Meditation is Canada’s first meditation studio, and it’s a completely unique experience from any other boutique studio you’ve come to know. Their business is based predominantly on a wide variety of meditation styles, with the overall goal of giving you a stress reducing injection of quiet happiness. I mean...sounds pretty good, right?
bē Hot Yoga is one of the most intimate, sexy and well priced hot yoga studios we've been to in Edmonton. Actually it's the only hot yoga studio we've been to in YEG. Our Happy Hips class was exactly what we needed and the chill vibe and cool decor gave us all the feels.
City Yoga X is one of the coolest and most innovative yoga companies we've come across. With no studio to tie them down, they roam from cool space to cool space to provide by-donation flow classes for all levels in new areas all over the city. Every pineapple well deserved, we LOVE what these guys are getting up to.
Facilitated through a platform called Namastream (so clever) you can browse hundreds of yoga videos that range from 5-minute arm balance tutorials to 90-minute flow classes. Simply put, we are SO TOTALLY into it.
The Ballet Boot Camp class incorporates ballet, yoga and Pilates based movements for a continuous fat burning workout that will leave you feeling tall, toned and as graceful as Misty Copeland (for half a second, because reality.)
Workout review of the Aussie original Bikini Body Guide, the interval training, full-body, 12-week program that uses your own body weight and minimal equipment. This program is everything we're about - real, strong, fit, healthy and happy.
