We also have fantastic sponsors supporting the event. One of those sponsors for OmT.O. is Afterglow Studio.

Afterglow Studio, located at 2034 Queen Street East, in the heart of the beaches neighborhood of Toronto, recently opened in June to a wave of very excited local yogis. The studio’s concept from classes, studio design and manifesto was a dream come true for owners Julie Watson and Liz Doyle. They poured their hearts and souls into their studio, working in tandem through life with 7 kids and a dog between them.  Their positive and upbeat energy sets the tone for the cool and spacious studio, which maintains an open and welcoming vibe.

With their focus on Vinyasa yoga, and HIIT style fitness classes, Julie and Liz created a place that provides possibility and potential for all levels. Their signature classes, taught by some of the most talented Toronto teachers are set to great music, with fun and challenging postures thrown in. Afterglow exposes students to the lighter side of yoga and fitness, while still respecting the tradition and benefits of breath, movement and spiritual connection. Afterglow offers Vinyasa 101, Vinyasa Flow, Power (Vinyasa) Flow, Core Flow, Kids Classes, Fuel HIIT, MobilityMend, Pre and postnatal yoga and fitness, Workshops, special events, birthday parties, studio rental and more.

The studio itself has 2 cork floor practice rooms, and a large community space. The retail section is a selection of curated items from yoga products to home goods, clothing and hostess gifts.  They provide fresh oranges for you pre and post class, and offer David’s Tea daily.  With free wifi in the community space, they encourage you to hang out a while and make yourself comfortable.

During the summer months, Afterglow offers FREE yoga in Kew Gardens every Wednesday evening from 6:15-7:15pm, until the end of September. Julie and Liz's mission is to use afterglow studio as a means to spread their love of yoga and fitness, all in the spirit of giving back.
