Health and wellness are at the top of everyone's mind these days in Montréal and around the world. Now more than ever is a time for caring for your friends, family and community, but it's a time of essential self-care too. Try live-streamed yoga with Montréal studios, join a virtual gym and even create a spa experience in your own bathroom.

Online yoga and meditation

Relax and still get your sweat on with Ashtanga Yoga Montréal's live-streamed yoga classes with the studio's instructors. Join one of Yoga Vieux Montréal's live-streamed yoga classes for adults. Mile End yoga mainstay Naada Yoga Montréal offers both online yoga classes and a video series to deepen your practice with breathing techniques and more. Luna Yoga's virtual studio offers live-streamed classes through Zoom every day of the week. And meditate while listening to Bota Bota, spa-sur-l'eau's Meditative Imagery series or colouring Montréal artist Cécile Gariépy's charming colouring pages or Kevin Ledo's Leonard Cohen mural. If you want to get some quality sleep, download the Relax Melodies app, developed by Montréal-based company Ipnos. It will help you alleviate any stress or anxiety you might be feeling at the moment. If you'd like to live a positive moment with your loved ones or colleagues, check out Happy Coffee Together.
