Yoga was never something that Pauline thought she would enjoy – she had the idea that it was too easy, too slow, that it wasn’t enough for her. And after taking her first class, she was quickly proven wrong. The yoga can be challenging, but also incredible. It opens you up to new things in your body, as well as your mind. It’s a connection that is truly unique to everyone, and it’s really beautiful.
Although Pauline can’t get most of her family members to practice yoga when they visit the city, her amazing fiancé, Cam, can be seen around the studio all the time. Pauline is thrilled to be part-owner of Harvest Yoga Studio with Jess, and is looking forward to future adventures together as business partners and lovers of yoga.
