Established in 2011
So I’m listening to Brother Jake on Rock 101 one morning, and his radio ad for Worksafe BC comes on; “I may be the Bro, but your the Pro”, and I thought, “that would be a good concept for a men’s yoga class, ‘ YoBro, YoPro’”.
Why a men’s only class? Because I was usually the only guy in class and that can be a little unnerving. So I told a few people, they liked the idea. One day, my wife says,”why don’t you teach?” So, I sign up to get certified and registered. I wanted to do the classes in my warehouse, but the landlord nixed that due to insurance reasons. However, he came up with a great location; a big dance hall with a pub in the basement. So YoGuy® was born, September 2011, holding a weekly class at the Wise Hall and the guys loved it! So now I teach yoga to men and they get to experience what I experience. Feeling good. Feeling strong. Feeling energetic. Friendly. Comfortable.
Now we just need to get the word out!
Meet the Business Owner: Stacey Reeves
When mountain biking with a buddy, he casually mentions “I’m going to yoga. You’d like it. Stretching and strengthening.” And it was never spoken of again. That was 1995. Skip ahead to January 2008: now married with kid (4mo. baby), my wife gets Grandma to buy us a 2 month yoga pass to get us out of the house once a week. My neck is killing me from an old mountain biking accident, I’ve sprained my back a few times contracting, no exercise for a year, no energy; the body feels like crap.
Safe. Comfortable. Yoga: good for men.
