We Are More Than a Yoga Studio.

We are your sidekick, your family, your colleague, your neighbour and your new bestfriend. We are free-spirited and independent. We are infinite. We are you. We are a community of yogis dedicated to living, breathing and thriving in the modern world.

We work from the ground up and bring you back to your roots. We strive for growth in our everyday lives. We’re more than the routine, we’re a way of life. We require no bells, no whistles. Our mission is simple, we are the mission statement. We are your yoga mat and we’re bringing “Om” back in yoga.

Yoga saved me.

I began my yoga journey in 2003 humbly. For me, yoga was just going to be an alternative to my usual gym routine—or so I thought. But what I found on the mat was more than just a workout.

In a time of personal hardship, yoga became a kind of mental and physical therapy. As my practice grew, so did my love of yoga and I knew owning a yoga studio was the only possible next step.

My goal is to share the connection to mind, body, and being that I found in yoga with anyone and everyone who seeks it. No matter where you are in your practice, I welcome you with an open arms and an open heart.

Yoga surprised me.

I never went looking for yoga, and I never thought it would find me. I’m an athlete at heart—I thrive on challenge and competition. I grew up tackling sports from martial arts to baseball to badminton.

But when my wife, Lizl Fleury, first exposed me to yoga, I found in it a new kind of challenge, something totally different from the rigid drills and exercise of my past. I began to feel the positive effects of yoga not just in my body, but in my whole way of life.

Now I honour my old love of athletics by volunteering with community sports, and my newfound love of yoga by helping my wife fulfill the dream of building a yoga studio.

Yoga sustains me.

I’m passionate about health and fitness; it’s practically my life story. I’ve been competing in sports for twenty-one years. You name it, I’ve done it — badminton, volleyball, cycling and running, just to name a few.

But no matter what I’m training for, I always make time for my yoga practice. It’s an integral part of my athletic life. It gives me balance. Through my yoga practice I have learned how to redefine my limits, reduce the frequency of my injuries, and improve my recovery time between training periods.

In fact, yoga is so important to me that I made it my business (literally) to help others find their balance and improve their quality of life through yoga.
