A Space Designed to Optimize Your Wellness


It is well known that people who live in northern climates suffer from a lack of natural light exposure. Since 35% of the sun’s emissions are infrared light, a lack of exposure to natural light can result in fatigue or tiredness, getting sick more frequently, bone/back pain and muscle pain.  Exposure to infrared light can combat these deficiencies. This type of light reaps many health benefits and can substantially aid those that deal with long, dark winters. Infrared light therapy has been shown to yield positive results for skin health, collagen production, physical performance, muscle recovery, reducing inflammation, and better sleep.

At Archetype, we aim to provide an elevated and distinguished experience in each area of our club. We have installed twenty-six infrared far light panels into our UniStudio to aid in the therapeutic infrared light exposure that many Edmontonians miss out on. During a class in our UniStudio, the infrared light will help regenerate the deficiencies that our climate places on us.

Infrared light therapy has been studied and tested in hundreds of peer-reviewed clinical trials.

Here are three key reasons why you need to experience our infrared paneled studio:


1) We all need energy (ATP if you want to get technical).

Red and near infrared wavelengths of natural light stimulate metabolic function through the mitochondria in your cells. Our mitochondria are energy producing powerhouses! Who needs coffee when you’ve got a cellular energy boost?

2) Infrared light has been shown to promote antioxidant production.

Antioxidants play a role in reducing cellular stress associated with injuries, muscle fatigue, joint pain and inflammation. Antioxidants also increase the production of heat proteins—special enzymes that help protect cells from stress and early death.

3) Studies have also identified an increase in circulation following infrared light therapy.

Circulation brings more oxygen and other nutrients to your cells that are important for healing. Plus, Edmontonians never say no to a warm cozy space!

Experience the infrared far light panels that heat this studio on-demand as you work towards biological optimization. Alongside the natural light and calming scents, this studio is ideal for Barre classes, Yoga practice, Mindful Movement, Meditation, Stretching and Mobility, as well as mat Pilates. With these benefits and features packed into one studio, our Yoga experience will exceed your normal flow. The combination of our intentionally curated classes and technology will support you in unifying your body, mind and soul. Be sure to take a step inside our UniStudio when you visit Archetype!
