Our Story

Boho Beautiful is a travel yoga lifestyle brand that is creating positive content for your body, mind, and the earth. Since our launch we have grown to over 600K subscribers on Youtube and have inspired and been inspired by people all over the world. Our content is centred around Yoga , Travel, Fitness, Vegan Food, Conscious Living, and Guided Meditations.

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

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 athletic career. She was a rhythmic gymnast that had immigrated from Ukraine to Canada at the age of 10. With much success representing Canada the intensity of her training unfortunately took its toll, Juliana suffered a severe spinal injury. 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.

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. But it was once she completed her studies in Costa Rica that it all began. Mark had come to meet up with her after her training, and little did they know it was the spark they both needed. To begin the real journey of seeking self-growth, a new life balance, and giving back.

Mark

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 artists internationally. At the same time that he was performing and recording music for himself, his record label eventually grew to a size which launched Mark into the music industry where he found a successful career scouting, helping to develop, and launching dozens of artist’s careers. While surrounded by “success” Mark felt something was out of place and suspected his path needed to be shifted back.

Then within months after meeting Juliana he did the one thing nobody expected: He walked away from it all… This created the space necessary for the two of them to figure out how to begin a new journey. One of self-care, awakening, and the search for a new and deeper purpose.
