The Modo community was born from the vision of Modo Yoga Co-founders Ted Grand and Jessica Robertson. Both were long-time yogis and had previously worked for not-for-profit organizations to support environmental protection and sustainable living.
At the time, Ted and Jessica were Bikram teachers, but were finding it increasingly difficult to teach under the leadership of a person whose values they didn’t share. After a lot of thought and careful consideration, they left the Bikram community, determined to bring yoga to the world in a way that made it accessible to everyBODY and placed great importance on protecting the earth.
What started as two small studios in Ontario back in 2004 has grown into a family of almost 80 environmentally conscious hot yoga studios across Canada, the US and now overseas!
