Cedar + Sage
On Tuesday afternoon Steph + I (Jen) popped over to a super cool new spot in town to chat with the owners + check out the space.
Cedar + Sage is a new Float | Massage | Yoga space in town!
We’ve been very interested in trying floating for a couple of years, but haven’t wanted to drive all the way to Barrie to give it a try. So extremely excited to have a spot in town now!
We chatted with Jes + Deanna about their new space, got a tour, learned about some of the benefits to floating for our recovery + even chatted about doing a CrossFit Indestri hot yoga class for CrossFit Indestri members on a Sunday afternoon in their Infared Yoga Studio!
If any of you would be interested in joining for a CFI private hot yoga class please let us know ASAP!
So, some may be asking….. Back up, what is floating?
Well, it’s a New Level of Relaxation!
Previously known as Sensory Deprivation or REST Therapy (Reduced Environmental Stimulation Technique), Float Therapy or, simply ‘floating’, is the process of lying in a salt water solution, inside a specially designed tank where both sound and light are isolated – providing a thoroughly distraction-free relaxation experience.
Due to the salt/water balance, your body rests in a perfect state of weightlessness. You are unable to tell where your body ends and the water begins. Because of the specially designed isolation tank, sound and light from the outside cannot reach you.
Float Therapy has become wildly popular over recent years, with people praising the myriad of benefits it provides. Those who experience floating describe a heightened sense of relaxation, greater mental clarity, pain relief, increased memory function, as well as alleviation of anxiety and depressive symptoms.
Many of us take Espom Salt baths after a hard day of training! The float tanks they have at Cedar + Sage contain 900lbs of salt! Talk about recovery!
The space at Cedar + Sage is absolutely beautiful + extremely calming. They have 2 float tank rooms, each room is private as seen above, with its own tank, shower, etc. | a yoga/hot yoga studio | treatment rooms | lounge area | along with change rooms + is all fully accessible which of course we’re big on!
As CrossFit athletes you train hard, + as hard as you train, you should be ensuring you area recovering smart! We see Cedar + Sage’s float tanks as another incredible tool to add to your recovery belt! We absolutely love supporting other local businesses in town + look forward to growing a great relationship with the lovely ladies, Jes + Deanna from Cedar + Sage!
Check them out at 20 Balsma Street Collingwood, in the plaza area across from Canadian Tire + visit cedarandsage.ca to book an appointment! Or learn more about floating through their FAQ page + be sure to let us know the interest level of a private CrossFit Indestri hot yoga class!
