Get Your Feet Wet With SUP Yoga On The Water.

For the first time we are teaming up with Toronto Island SUP for two unforgettable yoga experiences out on the water. To help you make the best of your Stand-up Paddle Board Yoga experience, here are three tips to help you stay afloat during this weekends class.

1. Wear Appropriate Clothing

Most non-cotton athletic gear will be somewhat water resistant and perfect for an afternoon out on the water (and maybe in it too). Be sure to wear clothing you will be comfortable in for traditional yoga poses. While PFDs will be provided, consider wearing a hat or polarized sunglasses for extra sun protection, a bathing suit, and of course, your sunscreen.

2.  Wear Sunscreen

Nothing ruins a great SUP yoga session like a gnarly sunburn. At least 15 minutes before class, liberally apply sunscreen to all areas of skin that will be exposed. Make sure it’s water-resistant (you can expect to get wet!).

3. Breathe and Dive Right In!

First timers can be nervous and hyper-aware of the SUP board. Instead of focusing on breathing through the pose, it feels more natural to cling to the board. This can lead to holding the breath, maybe in preparation for plunging into the water. Instead, focus on breath more than control, and expect your core muscles to be in overdrive as they help you retain that sense of balance on the board. And falling in the water? That’s not the worst thing in the world on a hot afternoon!

Join Us This Weekend

Join us for 1.5 hours of SUP Yoga with TRIBE instructor Emilie in an unforgettable location, the Toronto Islands Sunfish Cut, a popular lookout point with a spectacular view.

Run, Walk, Or Fly Through Our Next FREE Learn To Run Starting July 3rd.

Once again we are teaming up with The SuperPower 5K to provide a free 8-week Learn To Run Program. Check out the details below, and join us in studio Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm from July 3-August 21st.

DESCRIPTION: This beginner-friendly, 8-week training program is designed to prepare participants to reach a distance of 5km. The Couch to 5k program is based on a run/walk progression, and no past running experience is required. Weekly sessions will consist of a 10 min class covering training, fitness and technique, followed by a 25-50 min group run/walk session. A training plan will be provided to you at the first session outlining the entire training. Participants must be able to walk 60 minutes continuously.

LOCATION: On Wednesday the group will meet up at 10 Lower Spadina, suite 100. You will meet outside the studio. Change rooms, lockers, washrooms, and showers are available. There is a parking garage behind the Shoppers Drugmart on Queens Quay, paid street parking available on Rees or beside the LCBO, or by TTC from either the 510 or 509 streetcar exiting at Spadina and Queens Quay.

 TRAINING: Your 8-week plan in included below. You have three workouts during the week. While we’ve provided specific days for you, please feel free to move them to fit within your life. Can’t get out on a Saturday? Then walk/run on a Sunday. The important thing is to get the workouts in.

 ATTIRE: While appropriate running attire will be one of our instructional themes, dressing for the weather will be important from the start. Please consider the heat wearing light colours and light technical type of fabrics. Avoid natural fabrics like cotton which hold moisture into the body and get heavy with your sweat. Of course everyone is different, so giving your clothes a test walk/run at home would be ideal.

 BEFORE WORKOUT FUEL: Throughout your workout days you should be drinking lots of water, stopping about an hour before the workout. If you feel the need, a light snack before you run such as a banana or carrots and hummus is perfect.

 THE RACE: The SuperPower 5K

Toronto’s newest 5k is our goal race. This race will be an opportunity for you to celebrate your dedication and commitment to yourself. Registration information is available at www.superower5k.com. Use promo code TRIBE to save 10%.

 SOCIAL MEDIA: At Tribe we are huge fans of social media, so please let us know how your training is going by posting on our Facebook page, sharing a training photo with us tagged on Instagram, or giving us a tweet! Looking to track you workouts on your device? Check out the Strava App (it’s free) and join our Tribe My First Race Group.

 NEXT STEPS: At Tribe we love setting and crushing goals! As a next step, think about what it is you’re looking forward to throughout this program, bring an idea to share with us on Wednesday. Big or small, we want to hear it!

Runner's World: Running Through the Six: A Locals' Guide to the Underrated Running Haven That Is Toronto

STWM Getty.jpg

TRIBE founder, Heather, was interviewed by Runner’s World Magazine highlighting Toronto as a diverse network of neighborhoods, restaurants, breweries, run crews, and scenic trails that have become a must-visit running hub for runners from around the world.

In partnership with the Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon, Runner’s World Magazine suggests runners head up for marathon weekend early and give yourself a few extra days to see the city from a local’s shoes.

Our founder was one of seven athletes from six crews interviewed to share where they go to log a few miles, refuel post-long run, and more.

Here’s what Heather had to say:

Crew Vibe: TRIBE was one of the first real crews to bring group fitness to Toronto.

Go-To Route: The Martin Goodman Trail is an awesome way to get in your kms while seeing the city from the waterfront. This mostly flat route will take you through parks, Toronto's manmade beaches, and the new Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail—a short 2K loop through Toronto's newest green space and the abandoned Ontario Place amusement park. You'll catch some of the best views of downtown and the CN Tower.

Postrun drinks: Black Lab Brewing. Founded by Toronto runners, dog-friendly, with lockers for runners and bike racks for cyclists. It’s a great place to meet up before your run and hydrate afterward with two- and four-legged friends.
