We are a healing sanctuary IN THE CITY, a place to escape and unplug, reset, and feed your soul.
LA'YA : A place of rest
Escape the high energy of the city and step into Laya, where every detail is considered and put in place to make sure that your experience is nurturing. Our mantra is health from within, living beautifully inside and out. We are an Ayurveda inspired spa and our aim is to bring forth the practices of Eastern Medicine as a platform for healing. We offer nourishing and wholesome services that help support your body in good health.
Laya is housed in a modern space that blends exotic Moroccan textiles and North African design with the edge and urbanity of West Queen West. Our large range of traditional services include signature treatments like natural facials, hair removal, massage therapy and other unique body treatments that are medicine for the soul.
Movement is medicine, our yoga class offerings include a variety of unique classes that honour all levels of practice. (Our current offerings are limited due to COVID-19, please check back or call for more info)
Step into Laya and arrive in your body. Laya Loves You

"Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have."
A place of rest, abode, making the mind inactive, a state of mental quietude. It means dissolution, rest, repose. The presence of identity, of ego, of individuality is undisturbed by LAYA. In the natural `destruction' of the mind, the way and the seeker both disappear totally, in the silence, the fullness that is the Self. No tendency survives. Identity itself is lost. LAYA is a state in which the mind is calm, unperturbed, free of thoughts.
