The industries best Swag bag
from our generous sponsors.
Born out of appreciation for their peers, The Elevated Stylist is Canada's first educational retreat exclusively for hairstylists, with wellness in mind.
Co-founders Sonia Yarkhani and Jody Kezar, owners of Evolve Salon in Toronto are successful young entrepreneurs who have a passion for connection, a thirst for knowledge and live by their core value of balance, gratitude and mindfulness by not only incorporating this into their lives but also their salon environment.
With a combined 30 years in the salon industry, Sonia and Jody realized there was a lack of wellness and mindfulness in the hair industry.
Day after day, salon professionals are putting out energy while they take care of their guests, on their feet for long hours, and often left with little time to recharge and replenish their mind, body and souls.
Its located just outside the town of Bancroft, Ontario. Walden is surrounded by acres of peaceful woodland and a private lake.
Its an opportunity to turn off and tune in as we explore elevated education, mindfulness, yoga and evening by the camp fire.
