The 2014 Ottawa Health and Wellness Expo is fast approaching and we are excited with this years vendor lineup. The variety of vendors that have already signed up ensures that this years event will once again provide quality products, services and information to our city. We want everyone to know more about who our vendors are and how their business fits in to the Expo’s passion for seeing Ottawa the healthiest city in Canada. Between now and the Expo, we will be highlighting some of these amazing vendors. Stay tuned to our blog as we feature our vendors in a special vendor spotlight blog.
Journey of the Yogini (JOY)
Tell us about your business?
Journey of the Yogini (JOY) is a soul-based business that uses the power of Yoga to unite women locally and empower women and girls globally. We offer workshops, retreats, events, and trips that all serve to connect women with other like-minded women in the their communities and at the same time raise awareness and funds for charities that empower women and girls around the world.
The JOY community has raised over $175,000 for charity in the past two years. We support local charities such as Harmony House and Interval House, as well as National charities such as CARE Canada and Because I am a Girl, and international charities like Off the Mat, Into the World and Somaly Mam.
What makes you different from other businesses in your industry?
Journey of the Yogini is the only business in Canada who isn’t about bottom line and IS about giving back ~ specifically to charities that empower women and girls in our own community, country, and the world. We are unique in our approach, using Yoga to join women together in support of one another, rather than competition, and offer all participants the opportunity to support other women who might not be able to empower themselves without the support.
What clients do you enjoy working with the most?
JOY’s overall vision is to create a strong community of like-minded women, working together to empower, heal, and transform not only our own lives on an individual level, but also the lives of women who need it the most.
