Community. Inclusivity. Accessibility. You are you, there’s no one exactly like you. We find the best way to connect is to celebrate our differences and honour what lights each of us up. The world needs you, sharing your perspective, giving the world experience of what it’s like to walk the world in your shape. When we let ourselves be seen and heard, we charge the light up in those around us to do the same. Could you share a little more of your joy with the world around you? #lovingpeoplelovinglife

At the studio we have mats to rent. This year we tried out BMAT to get outside of our comfort zone, to expand beyond our regular 4 corners of our mats. We love grip, the colours, and the company. We make sure to investigate the brands we work with to see that we align with values, and feel a good connection to what they are doing in the world. They also sell a long length for those reigning above the rest of us! We can order one for you if you don't see one you want in studio. PSA for the sake of your yoga practice!
Feel good, look good. We have the wonderful privledge of having Junction branded lululemon apparel in the studio. This company has been so supportive of our space and our teachers, it goes without saying that having a brand in house that represents growth, goals, and going after your dreams is a real honour. It's not about what you wear, it's about how you feel in what you wear. That little 9 over your heart, so you remember that you are the reason we are in business, to support your journey of wellness no matter what path you are on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #lovingpeoplelovinglife
