It seems like such a long time ago now, but our very first studio opened up November 2, 2009. We had a common dream—a place to bring community together. This is Power Yoga Canada. Yoga is our medium and transformation is our message. So often we are asked what our trick is and how we have been able to grow this community. We wish there was a secret sauce that we could bottle and market, but it is simple—we make everyone feel at home.
Since 2009, we have opened a bunch of studios and have both grown our personal families with new babies. Kinndli and I even had a baby on the same day 2 years apart—#crazy. We have seen our students meet, get married and grow families. Others have graduated and moved across the world. Regardless as to where people have gone, we love seeing them come home again and hearing about how they are achieving their dreams and goals.
If there was one thing that we could share with you, it is that Power Yoga Canada is the home of everything Power Yoga. We do one thing and we do it the best in Canada—HOT POWER YOGA. This is the one thing we urge you to find out about yourself. What are you the best in the world at? What are you most passionate about? Find that, then get up and share it with the world!
So whether you decide to practice at Mississauga or venture out to Oshawa, one thing is for sure—when you walk through the doors of a PYC, someone will welcome you! Connect with us on Facebook or Instagram and tell us what you are best at. One day soon we will be reading your bio. After all, empowering community into action is really what we are about.
Kinndli & Pauline
P.S. We want to say thank you to all of you who have practiced with us, cried with us, celebrated with us and changed our babies diapers for us. YOU and ALL OF YOU have made this dream a reality. As the African proverb says, “It takes a village to raise a child.” Well, PYC is our child and you have been the village that has kept it thriving. Here’s to many more sweaty mats!
