In Toronto, Now You Can Om Inside a Geodesic Dome


- Advertisment -

The Toronto yoga scene turned up the heat in June as 50 geodesic domes appeared downtown at the Stanley Barracks outside of Hotel X for five weeks (June 21–July 31) of hot—socially distanced—yoga.


As coronavirus cases in Toronto climb toward 15,000, the yoga domes, hosted by Lmnts Outdoor Studio and six of the city’s hottest local yoga and fitness studios (10XTO, Solis Movement, BeHot Yoga, and more), offer several safe and sweaty classes daily. The domes provide fitness and mindfulness enthusiasts with an opportunity to gather for group fitness during pandemic-related restrictions and continued city-wide closures of studios and other non-essential businesses. As yoga practitioners—and even teachers—experience “Zoom fatigue,” Toronto’s yoga dome pop-up offers an a way to maintain mental and physical health during unsteady times.

“Now more than ever, Torontonians are looking for things to do and ways to get outside again, while maintaining physical distancing,” said Steve Georgiev, an organizer for the event. “The nature of their [the domes’] construction offers a great opportunity to have a collective experience.”

Each clear, frameless dome measures 7-by-12 feet and provides 110 square feet of personal space. For $33 a pop, practitioners enjoy 360-degree views as they breathe, move, and sweat in 100-degree Fahrenheit temps for a no-contact hot yoga experience.(And yes, the heat is self-adjustable, and no, you don’t have to stay inside if you’re overheating; this isn’t Bikram Yoga.)Before and after each class, the domes are professionally cleaned and sanitized. Prior to entering the dome zone, each patron has their temperature checked and will be asked to vacate the premises if they are potentially symptomatic.
