Hey, it’s time for the NOW Magazine Reader’s Choice Poll, and YOGAthletix is nominated! Here are the top 10 reasons why I love YOGAthletix, and why it deserves your vote for best workout studio.

  1. FRIENDLY AND LAID BACK – Don’t know a plank from a plié? No need to feel intimidated. Everyone at the studio is welcoming to all levels.
  2. THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS – There’s a wide variety of yoga and fitness classes. Studio directors Jamie and Glenn describe their style as the “Goldilocks” approach to yoga and fitness: not too spiritual, not too physical, it’s juuuuust right.
  3. AWESOME TEACHERS – The teachers are motivating and knowledgable.
  4. SUPPORTS LOCAL – They support local artists by using the reception area as a gallery space so you can peruse the artwork before and after class.
  5. LOCATION – The location can’t be beat! I ❤ Leslieville.
  6. BEAUTIFUL SPACE – The studio is bright, clean, well-designed, and spacious.
  7. KILLER MUSIC – The soundtracks used in class are the best!
  8. GIVES RESULTS – The workout is incredible. The next day you’ll meet muscles that you never knew you had.
  9. VARIETY – There’s always a lot going on, whether it’s yoga in the park, candlelit class for earth day, or a free self-defense seminar for women.
  10. COMMUNITY AND SUPPORT – There’s a 21 day YOGAthletix Living Challenge starting on September 14th! Gather friends and sign up for this fun challenge!
