Yoga Tree, the popular Thornhill yoga studio, is making its Toronto debut, launching officially next Thursday at 140 Spadina Avenue. We know, the city already has many sweaty bachelor apartment-size environments in which to downward dog, but Yoga Tree differs in its earth-friendly approach and the sheer variety of its offerings: heated, non-heated, Kripalu, Hatha, restorative and mommy-and-me classes. After successes in Thornhill and Richmond Hill, a now pregnant Debbie Fung, with the help of her co-partner and husband Jason Lu and their families, have brought their brand of yoga to Toronto in an environment complete with zero-toxin paints, cork flooring, energy-efficient lighting, low-flow shower heads, reclaimed wood furnishings and even a no-paper policy—participants have to sign in on a laminated sheet.
