Wellness Team Announcement: Monika Bigelow, RMT

Have you ever experienced an Ashiatsu Massage? Until meeting Monika Bigelow, The Floatation Centre’s newest team addition, neither had I! Monika is only one of two Ashiatsu Practitioners in Nova Scotia and we are happy to have her on board.  To begin, Monika will be practicing traditional massage techniques, but moving forward, we will be expanding the…

Wellness Team Announcement: Nicole Marchand, PDt

Eat Well Halifax. That is what Nicole Marchand, our Professional Dietitian, wants you to do.  So we’re just going to go ahead and make that happen. A little aside: Nova Scotia is a small province.  Halifax is a small city.  I love it here (said on repeat).  When I first connected with Nicole to chat,…

Connie McInnes, Float Ambassador

It’s been three days since my 7:15am Wake + Shake Pilates class at RIO HFX and I am STILL feeling it.  Every part of me burns and aches, but in a rewarding way.  Like most Haligonians this winter, the weather really kicked my butt.  Sedentary days in front of a computer without my usual strolls…

Float at the End of the Tunnel

Two days ago, someone asked me how I was doing with starting my own business and I said “At least I get to float at the end of the tunnel, so that’s nice”.  There are stretches of time where I need to remind myself WHY I am doing this because it is easy to lose focus….

Ricky Goodall Float Ambassador

At my first networking event in Halifax, I stood off to the side, getting my free beer into me as fast as possible.  I was very nervous, it was stuffy, I was wearing uncomfortable shoes.  I felt out of place but hey, free Propeller beer – right?! We went around the room, introducing ourselves and…

Construction Update Ventilation & Deep Breaths

The calls have begun to come in daily: “When are you opening & when can I book an appointment?” My intention all along has been to open at the end of March and I’m gunning hard for that date.  However, as construction buzzes along at what feels like 299,792,458 m/s, I am waiting for one major…

Kate Hamilton Float Ambassador

I am such a lucky-ducky to meet Kate via the CEED program, which supports local entrepreneurs in opening their small businesses.  After attending many-a-workshop together, I got up the courage to chat with Kate and gain some insight into logo creation, branding and, well, style.  Girl is the snappiest dresser I know – which is why you…

Float Ambassadors aka The Floatation Centre’s Life Force

Float Ambassadors are the heart of The Floatation Centre (TFC).  They are responsible for pumping out and sharing the love of floating to our fine city.     A year ago, when creating a list of the attributes I was looking for in folks to be ambassadors, ‘doing good shit in our community‘ was at the top. …

Wowzers

If I could use one word to describe the past week, that would be it.  Wowzers.  The reception of The Floatation Centre has been nothing short of remarkable.  I’ve known all along that this is something that I wanted – needed – to make happen.  The support from external sources (YOU!) further solidified that I’m on the…

Fan Your Flames

<post-from-the-heart incoming> The inspiration for this post came from this lovely, lovely quote from my homeboy, Rumi: Things have been really on lately.  I mean, REALLY on.  Sure, I have hit a shed load of setbacks, but so far, navigating through these murky waters has been viewed from the perspective of a ‘learning process’ as…
