Mobility is possible only by being mobile. Seems self-evident but this is the basis of the Cycles method for fitness and self-expression. CYCLES lifts us out of our mostly sedentary or repetitive daily action and fills us with breath, energy, flow, co-ordinations, impulse, patterns, alignments, stretch, strength, power, self-expression through individual and group exercises that ENERGIZE and REJUVENATE our natural capacities for movement.

Maxine Heppner’s technique is a mindful movement-dance training that integrates over 40 years of Dance, Theatre and traditional movement practices. It allows for each person to work within personal needs and references. > For every person who enjoys expressing themselves through movement. All abilities. For all who move and want to do it dancing.

“Deep and powerful – calling on over 45 years of experience, Maxine gentles one into a mobility energized for strength, imagination and ease.”

Belly Bootcamp (Thursdays)

Under the guidance of mama-of-3 and founder Dara Bergeron, our experienced Belly Bootcamp trainers and prenatal/postnatal fitness specialists deliver exceptional programming in a no-nonsense, down-to-earth style that mamas love. Give us just an hour or two of your precious time and we’ll ensure you are safe, supported, and feeling strong.

Body positivity and accessibility for all fitness levels are a big deal at BB. You won’t find any diet talk, body shaming or purposeless ab work around here. Everything we do – from our group classes to our online programming to our award-winning blog – is deliberate and fuelled by our belief that good health is every mama’s right.

We believe our clients’ strong bodies and big smiles speak for us. But we’ve also been featured by Today’s Parent, Fashion Canada, The Social, BlogTO, CTV, Bloor West Villager, and other fine outlets.

Thursdays 8pm-9pm Pre/Postnatal in Studio 108.

Sept 6th class will be in Studio 107

Sept 13, 20, 27th classes will be in Studio 106
