Though there are certainly other fun ways to exercise and enjoy Thompston Toronto's beautiful spaces, yoga is becoming practically an institution here. Guests can take their pick from over 30 classes per week offered at the hotel's sunlit, third-floor yoga studio, 889 Yoga.

Having launched in another neighborhood in Toronto in 2007, 889 Yoga opened inside the hotel last September as a way to "bring yoga, wellness and connection to people, inspiring happier and healthier living from the inside out."

Not only has membership increased ($18.50 for a single class; $80 for five classes), but the need for even more of a wellness community is tangible: this year, 889 Yoga is scheduled to open a new spa in the hotel featuring massages, facials, and special treatments for soon-to-be moms.

Inside the studio, floor-to-ceiling windows keep the space airy and bright, allowing guests to feel like they're truly interacting with the surrounding area (the fact that native Torontonians also show up for class helps, too). And while vinyasa is the main draw, variation classes are offered throughout the week like candlelit yoga and "brunch flow" classes on the weekends.

Elsewhere on the third floor of the hotel, elliptical machines, stationary bikes, treadmills and free weights provide other fitness-oriented guests a more traditional workout.

As for the spa, the doors have yet to open, but guests should expect much of the same as 889 Yoga's other spa on Yonge Street. And of course, after you've been pounded into a Swedish Massage-induced daze, what better spot to sit and marinate for a while than the hotel's awesome rooftop.
