Check out Allie Macyintre ! The Marketing and Brand Manager @ JOGA Corp.
JOGA was created by Jana Webb to bridge the gap between the traditional practice of yoga and the biomechanics of sports. After many successful years of implementing the JOGA program into the training practice of athletes and international sports team’s , Webb recognized that not only did every athlete require individualized physical needs, but also, they needed an all-encompassing wellness program tailor made to fit their individual emotional, mental and nutritional well being – unlocking their greatest potential. Every BODY is different and therefore, The Joga Code was born. DNA specific training. Joga is now available to the urban athlete who knows that game day is everyday.
I (Veronique) decided to attend a class; as a former varsity athlete – I always kept a closed mind to yoga. When my friend Allie, started working for JOGA, it was something new for me to try and extend my horizons and get my flexibility back and build muscle strength, without lifting weights. My initial thoughts when walking into JOGA, was that this a nice and cool spot, I was welcomed by friendly faces, who most definitely extended the hospitality throughout my first session. Classes were intimate and taught by instructors with experience who also enjoyed the “JOGA” mantra. THIS IS A MUST EXPERIENCE, even if you are a beginner or an avid yogi.

Where do you work?
I am the Marketing & Brand Manager @ JOGA Corp! Located at 208 Bloor West.
What do you love about your job/workplace?
I get to do what I love in an industry I’m passionate about. I get excited about everything from our large-scale events to the day to day stuff. I am constantly connecting and working with awesome people.
JOGA is in its start up phase so it has been amazing to be a part of the growth and change. We are a small team and are always doing something new and changing it up. There is NEVER a dull moment. Whether it’s working with my cool af co-workers, pro-athletes or The Real Housewives of Toronto, I am constantly entertained. JOGA itself should be a reality TV show…maybe one day ….. PLUS I get to wear workout clothes to work everyday.
Why did you pick Toronto has your new home?
The studio is in Yorkville, so the commute from home was killer. A lot of my friends are downtown, so it just made sense. Toronto has such a cool vibe to it, I’ve wanted to live here for a while.
How does Toronto influence your brand/ what you do?
JOGA is a Toronto based brand and where HQ is, there are so many events & opportunities for a start up to do well here. The cool urban vibe of Toronto is what we like to blend with JOGA, the studio is a place you can sweat and meditate in, but also listen to rap and watch sports in between.
