MOMENT I FELL IN LOVE WITH SOUL
I can remember this day vividly. I was dancing for Disney Cruise Lines during the summer of 2014 in Mykonos, Greece. My friend Zoe (who had worked at the West Village studio) told me about SoulCycle while we were sipping cocktails. She told me I would love it, but I was like, "Girl, I'm not getting on a bike that goes absolutely nowhere." Long story short, we got back to the city and she got me a job. After two months of working at the front desk, I fell in love with SOUL and everything our brand represented. The minute my booty hit the saddle and the music started pumping, I was hooked and I knew I needed SOUL for life!

WHY I HEART TORONTO
I love Toronto and how it is so multicultural and diverse. I've been to Toronto plenty of times and I feel what the SOUL brand fits perfectly. It's a lifestyle and a community, and that's exactly what draws me back to Toronto.
