SPA SANCTUARY Warm up and wind down with luxurious treatments like a hot stone massage at Novo Spa, or escape to the Turkish steam room at Hammam Spa. For a truly decadent head-to-toe treat, try the Sea Flora Detox Wrap at Elmwood Spa—20 minutes in an infrared sauna, followed by a nourishing body masque, then a warm lava shell massage.
ALIGN YOUR CHAKRAS Boost your mind, body, and temperature at a drop-in hot yoga class. Rent a mat and towel, or bring your own. At Bikram Yoga Centre, you’ll work your entire body by performing 26 postures over 90 minutes. A range of classes from beginner to advanced are offered by Moksha Yoga (577 Wellington St. W., 416-361-3033), while a hatha session at Tula Hot Yoga & Spa can be combined with massage or esthetic services.
SPORTS FANS UNITE One surefire way to heat up in winter is to huddle with 19,000 of your closest friends at a Toronto Maple Leafs or Toronto Raptors game. Our hometown rink rats and heroes of the hardcourt have struggled of late, but few would accuse either team of failing to put up a fight. Cheer them on at the Air Canada Centre.
COVETED CUP The Stanley Cup has also been known to set hearts aflame. Visit the Hockey Hall of Fame for a close-up look at the sport’s iconic grail, and to learn about the legendary players who have hoisted it. Or test your skills in the interactive NHLPA Be A Player Zone.
NOTEWORTHY ABODES Travel back in time by visiting a historic site—don’t worry, they’re all equipped with modern heating! Striking Casa Loma is a must-see, with 98 opulently decorated rooms. Directly across the street, weekend visitors to the newly renovated Spadina Museum can see the city through the eyes of a prominent Toronto family. Or take a tour of Mackenzie House, home of the city’s first mayor.
