We are a team that loves talking to our students to understand their reasons for practice, ensure their safety, and foster a strong sense of community.
YogaMcc has a long history having been founded over 20 years ago.
In the summer of 2002 the Yoga and Meditation Centre of Calgary was born from a tenacious, entrepreneurial minded and caring woman named Barbara Ross. From day one she was determined to create a positive impact on people's lives through sharing the teachings of yoga and meditation. She held high standards to what was offered through the space and a deep dedication to her practice. Many of the great yoga and meditation teachers in Calgary took their first classes at YogaMcc and were inspired to become teachers themselves.
Barbara eventually passed the studio on to its second owner, Jodi, who was one of the most loved teachers at the studio at the time. Jodi made everyone feel at home as she always took the time to chat with and really listen to each person that came to YogaMcc. Jodi transformed the look of the space by taking down walls and changing the class format to include drop-in so these practices could be more accessible. She continued to hold what was offered to high standards while bringing in an even more diverse set of offerings.
MEET THE LEADERSHIP
Daemond and Veronica became the caretakers of YogaMcc in January 2019. Over the years Daemond taught meditation, breathwork, sound healing, Trilotherapy, and more. But in 2019, Daemond and Veronica couldn’t shake the feeling that they needed a change to add more meaning to their lives.
They wanted to hold a sacred space for their community. So they took on the ownership of YogaMcc,
and a whole new adventure began…
When they took on guardianship of the space they approached it from a student's perspective, taking time to listen and learn from much of the community members. They eventually also changed the look of the studio and added a wide diversity of new offerings, adding to the established yoga and meditation programming.
Anne, a long time teacher at YogaMcc, was immediately identified as the best choice to fill the role of manager. She has become an indispensable member of the leadership team.
