Whether you’re in the mood for a meditation class, a sound bath, or a sweaty infrared sauna session, Toronto’s wellness spaces are here to deliver. These diverse, multi-disciplinary health centres offer comprehensive services for busy downtowners. These spaces are great for those who want to live well without struggling in silence on a meditation mat at home, or making regular spa splurges a weekly thing.
Here are 6 spots to unplug, chill out, and get connected to your inner self – where your best life begins!
430 Adelaide St W
A community gathered pretty quickly around Hoame, an Instagram-worthy King West meditation studio. With a comfy lounge, with charcoal lemonade on tap, a light and dark meditation room complete with a living wall, faux night sky, a salt cave, and infrared sauna, Hoame is a local escape with all the comforts of home. Come for an energizing or relaxing group meditation class for $23/ 30 mins, or drop in for a 30-minute self-guided session for $10.
360 Dufferin St., 106
Good Space keeps it simple with offering 3 types of classes: Move (vinyasa-style yoga), Ease (yin and restorative style yoga), and Still (guided meditation). The no-frills spot in Parkdale aims to make yoga and meditation super accessible, for newbies especially. Bring your pal who wants to get into it, plus you can start with a 3-week unlimited intro membership for $40.
967 College St.
In addition to a yoga studio, Octopus Garden has been operating as a multi-disciplinary health clinic since 2005. Here you can find services like massage therapy, naturopathy, osteopathy, physiotherapy, holistic nutrition, reiki, and relationship psychotherapy. Get a $118-a-month membership and get unlimited yoga classes and free mat storage. Everyone from families to newbies to advanced practitioners will feel at home in this inclusive, casual space.
2005 Danforth Ave.
This eclectic collective of health practitioners provides a comprehensive arsenal of services on Danforth East and also aims to be an incubator environment for new practitioners. With 6 therapy rooms and a room for group practice, The Healing Collective brings together psychotherapists, social workers, doulas, yoga therapists, counsellors, aromatherapists, and more. If there’s a specific alternative therapy you’re seeking — or if you’re looking for a community to grow your own wellness business, check out this collective.
9 Mill St.
Lemon Water Wellness Clinic and General Store is home to a team of naturopathic doctors, chiropractors, physiotherapists, osteopaths, and registered massage therapists in the Distillery District. Come on the weekend to get hooked up at the Vitamin IV Lounge, where you can chill while getting in those essential vitamins. Afterward, shop their curated selection of supplements and natural skincare and get prepped for your week.
5-320 Danforth Avenue
Inspired Life has been a staple in the Carrot Common on the Danforth since 2005, and it’s actually one of the city’s largest holistic healthcare centres. Come in for a reiki session, acupuncture, craniosacral therapy or appointment with a homeopath, or a session in their infrared sauna. Bring your grocery list and get your organics at the Big Carrot — it’s basically a one-stop shop.
