The top 5 new yoga studios in Toronto for 2014

New yoga studios in Toronto are stepping away from your average stretch and balance yoga, offering a large variety of yoga-like classes for you to put those yoga pants to good use. (You know that's what they're for...right?) From hot to normal temperature, and on the floor to in the air, these new yoga studios will leave you feeling
fit and limber.

Here are my picks for the top five new yoga studios in Toronto for 2014.

Union Yoga and Wellness
Whether you're a beginner or highly experienced at downward dog, Union Yoga and Wellness in Bloorcourt Village will make you feel welcomed. With a bright, airy space there's a variety of classes, included pre- and post-natal classes, so you and you're baby can become zen together.

Branch Yoga + Wellness
Branch Yoga and Wellness in Etobicoke takes you beyond your basic yoga moves and takes you into the air. With their aerial yoga class, you'll be suspended from the ceiling in a hammock type device while you practice your yoga moves. They also offer more traditional classes if you're not feeling very daring.

Yoga Tree (Bay and Dundas)
Right in the heart of downtown, this new Yoga Tree location boasts one of the largest yoga spaces in Toronto at 10,000 sq. ft. After you try out one of their signature classes that range from levels 1 to 3, you can sweat it out in their sauna or sit back and relax at their kumbucha bar.

YogaBe
Located on the PATH level of the MetroCentre (so you'll have minimum exposure to the frigid outdoors!) YogaBe is a great place to come on your lunch break to work a little yoga into your day. If you're looking for a more intense workout, they offer a Yoga Bootcamp class which incorporates both yoga and cardio intervals.

Studio Blue Yoga
When you're yearning for some warm, sunny days, Studio Blue, located at Dundas and Dufferin, is the perfect retreat. Decorated with blue accents and sunflower pictures lining the walls, the studio is kept at 26 degrees, so you'll be comfortable when you drop in for one of their array of classes.
