Yoga in High Park: July 31st - Power Yoga Canada Etobicoke
July 27, 2016 13:00
This Sunday we welcome Nastaran from Power Yoga Canada Etobicoke!
I am first and foremost a human of gratitude. I am grateful for everything this universe offers up to me every single day and I try earnestly to give back in my way of being.
My life's journey until now has me as a mother of 2 beautiful souls, a youth worker, and yoga teacher with Power Yoga Canada in Leaside. I am a believer in the magic and wonders of our universe and in sharing as much love and light as I can with those around me.
About the studio:
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 and that is what Power Yoga Canada is. Yoga is our medium - but transformation is our message. So often we are asked what our trick is and how we have been able to grow this community. I wish there was a secret sauce that we could bottle and market, but it is simple, we make everyone feel at home.
In the last couple years we have opened 5 studios and both have grown our personal families with new babies - both Kinndli and I had a baby on the same day 2 years apart - #crazy. We have seen our students meet, get married, have babies. Others have graduated and moved across the world. Regardless as to where people have gone we love seeing them come home again and hear about how they are achieving their dreams and goals.
If there was one thing that I could share with you reading is that we, Power Yoga Canada is the home of everything Power Yoga. Yes, I know it would be nice to get a yin class regularly on the schedule. And yes, I understand that a pre-natal class would do so well, because there are so many pregnant women (I was one of them). Well, here’s the thing - we do one thing and we do it the best in Canada, and that is HOT POWER YOGA. And that is the one thing that 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 - get up, and share it with the world!
So whether you decide to practice at Mississauga, or venturing out to Oshawa, one thing is for sure when you walk through the doors of a PYC someone will welcome you! If you are still reading this, tweet us @poweryogacanada use #bestintheworld and tell us, what you are the best at and one day soon we will be reading your bio :) After all - empowering community into action is really what we are about.
Kinndli & Pauline
ps. we want to say thank you to all of you who have practiced with us, cried with us, celebrated with us, changed our babies diapers for us. YOU and ALL OF YOU have made this dream a reality. Hilary Clinton said it best, “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 :)
Our Mission, Vision & Values
Power Yoga Canada is a way of living - both in and out of the yoga room. You will be empowered, inspired and lit up to take your life on and to be a shining light to everyone around you. At PYC our medium is yoga, but our mission is simple:
EMPOWER COMMUNITIES INTO ACTION
The way we execute our mission statement is by following the core values extracted from a book called, The Collaborative Way, that we have implemented amongst our studios, teachers and energy exchange programs:
