Canada’s leading community of yoga studios works to make mindfulness more accessible with cross-country expansion

TORONTO, ON (September 17, 2019) - Continuing to build on the goal of bringing its premium practice to yogis across the country, today YYOGA has announced the availability of franchising opportunities to Canadians. Celebrated as the country’s original yoga network, YYOGA launched its new digital streaming platform YYOGA at Home earlier this year and is now extending its commitment to make mindfulness more accessible from coast to coast as it seeks franchise owners to join the movement.  

“We’re thrilled to embark on this next chapter and have been immensely grateful for our founding communities in Vancouver and Toronto who continue to support us,” said YYOGA president, Carey Dillen. “Fueled by this energy, love and passion, we’re excited to bring our signature offering to more cities across Canada with the help of our partners!”

Over 12 years ago, YYOGA’s founding locations opened with the intention of making the world a better place through the practice of yoga and the power of mindfulness. Since opening those doors, YYOGA has served nearly 300 thousand yogis, seen 7.9+ million member visits and offered almost 400 thousand classes to its members. None of this was done alone — YYOGA had the help of awesome partners who continue to be the heart and soul of the community today.

To this day, YYOGA continues to support the wellbeing of Canadians through yoga, fitness, meditation and signature classes across 12 locations within B.C. and Ontario. With today’s announcement, the team is looking for franchise owners who are passionate about wellness, cultivating community and changing lives to join them in this next stage of growth. 

Seen as true partners to the YYOGA team, franchise owners will be chosen with great intention as they will be the heart and soul of future YYOGA locations. As an owner, each will be supported by an established team and be provided with a proven business and financial model as well as insight into how to attract and mentor teacher talent. 

YYOGA’s exciting growth propels its mission of making high-quality yoga teaching and yoga-centric fitness classes more accessible to Canadians. To view available communities and learn more about this opportunity, visit https://ownayyoga.com/.
