I recently attended a talk at the Lululemon Lab by Alex Mazerolle and Jian Pablico from Distrikt Movement. You might remember Alex from her talk at the Starting Out event that I captured last year. They told their story about what it’s like to go from napkin concept to full fledged gym/yoga/studio owners. It was very much a non-sugar coated talk and really refreshing to see local entrepreneurs out there grinding to make things happen, making mistakes along the way, and sticking to the values they established from the beginning (I sound like I’m pitching this to Hollywood…).
Distrikt was formed to combine and sustain both of their passions for working with youth, Alex runs Girlvana Yoga and Jian runs the Varsity Initiative. Distrikt runs a whole slew of Yoga/Crossfit/Fitness Classes so that they can make youth classes as accessible as possible, they’re definitely worth checking out. I know I want to try out the Crush Hush class, sounds awesome!
