The balance between body and mind is a priority to Jaybird Studio. That’s because they work with one-of-a-kind holistic offerings, such as infrared saunas, moving meditation, yoga and pilates-inspired workouts!
In a search to balance body and mind wellness, Jaybird Studio incorporates infrared therapy into their moving meditation classes. But you might be wondering, what is infrared therapy and how can it help me?
Infrared therapy is a light-based method of treating pain and encouraging cell-growth in your body as a gentle and soothing heat that stimulates relaxation and improved sleep.
Regarding the benefits of this type of therapy, according to Barbie Bent, one of the co-founders of Jaybird Studio, “Research has shown that whole-body heating activates serotonin-producing cells and increases norepinephrine. Serotonin helps regulate mood and increase feelings of happiness, while norepinephrine increases focused attention (…) researchers have also found a link between heat exposure and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). BDNF promotes myelin growth which allows your brain to function faster. Infrared is also known to promote relaxation, better sleep, improved circulation, and clearer and tighter skin.”
With that being said, the experience provided by Jaybird Studio with infrared therapy will:
- Boost your immune system
- Purify your skin
- Aid in muscle recovery
- Relieve pain
- Improve circulation
Now, combining this therapy with the yoga and pilates-inspired workout provided by the Studio, prepare to boost your brain activity even more! The goal is to heat your body, making it sweaty during the exercise, while also allowing it to breathe easily the whole time. Ultimately, leaving you refreshed after every workout session and experience.
Initially Vancouver-based, this contemporary movement studio just launched its first Canadian expansion in Toronto’s Queen West neighborhood. Both locations have all the needed amenities like showers, lockers, filtered water stations and refresh stations. Plus, mats and towels are provided by Jaybird Studio – making your experience an unforgettable one!
In addition, Jaybird Studio is known for creating inspiring environments for their exercises, with loud, immersive music to draw the members’ attention inward, as well as mirrorless and dark rooms to avoid distraction, besides the infrared heat.
Ultimately, Jaybird Studio is about making their members feel good about themselves, focusing on the feeling over the looks, and leaving comparison and judgement outside their unique space at all times!
If you think you match the energy of Jaybird Studio, make sure to book your class for either Vancouver or Toronto to take advantage of everything they have to offer, especially the exciting infrared therapy for your most absolute wellness!
