It all began by simply pressing record. We had an idea for years but seemed to always have so many reasons to avoid beginning. We wanted to create video content that would contribute more positivity, love, health, and wellness into this world, but had never shot a video before. It wasn’t until 2014 when Mark tore his ACL and underwent knee surgery that his recovery gave us the space and the wake-up call to finally begin to take back control of our own future. Learning everything as we went, we began to create fitness and yoga videos and promised ourselves to always to give 100% of our energy and never expect anything in return. It was a wonderful beginning…
Today we are so lucky and blessed to have Boho Beautiful impact so many of the people who watch and participate in our videos. As a growing community for health and mindfulness, Boho Beautiful continues to strive to contribute more positivity to the world. We both continue to pour our hearts and souls into this project we created together every single day. Boho Beautiful was and will always continue to be built upon these ideas: pushing to become your personal best with each new day, bringing more kindness into the world with whatever you put your energy into, peace and equality for all beings, and the continued preservation of our planet so all can live happy, healthy, and free.
Juliana has been a yoga, Pilates and fitness instructor for over 8 years. Her journey began after her rehabilitation from a serious back injury due to her professional athletic career. She was an Olympic Level rhythmic gymnast that had immigrated from Ukraine to Canada at the age of 10 and soon after became a professional athlete representing Canada worldwide. Winning medals for Canada in Pan-American Games and the Pacific Alliance Games, she was the Canadian National Champion and part of the 2008 Olympic Development Team for Beijing Olympics. Due to the intensity of her training, Juliana suffered a severe spinal injury prior to the Olympics which forced her to retire immediately. Going through a difficult transition and recovery Juliana reached out to Pilates and yoga to bring herself back to health. It was a perfect match.
Juliana has and continues to help people gain strength, health, mindfulness, and healing across the globe. Before starting Boho Beautiful with her husband Mark, she ran her own private training business, as well as worked for Equinox Fitness and a handful of yoga studios in Toronto, Canada. It was once she completed her studies in Costa Rica that it all began. Mark had come to meet up with her afterward, and little did they know it was the spark they both needed. To begin the real journey, of seeking and growing and learning and giving.
Mark began a career in music as a teenager when he started his own record label and began touring as an artist in different bands. His passion for music fuelled him to not only independently release records and tour in his own punk rock band, but also to play bass and tour with Avril Lavigne as they launched her first record. At the same time as he was performing and recording music for himself, the artist’s on his record label eventually grew to collectively sell hundreds of thousands of records which in turn throttled Mark head first into the music industry. While in the music business Mark had a successful career scouting, helping to develop, and launching dozens of artist’s careers. Eventually, he climbed the ladder while working at Universal Music Canada to become the Head of A&R. However, even while surrounded by “success” Mark felt his path had been altered somewhere along the way for the worse.
Within months after meeting Juliana he did the one thing nobody expected: He quit… And for the most part in the music industry, he vanished. Needing to find himself again Mark found a new life working in television and partnering on new projects with his close friends. That’s when it all truly began, and with Juliana, the two of them began their new path. Of growth, awakening, and the search for something more.
