Finding Balance Through Art

Micah Nelson established her holistic wellness, art, and education business, Balance First Workshops in 2012. She originally began it as a yoga company, however she knew that she wanted to add more workshops and services in the future.

Growing up, Micah was deeply inspired to empower youth as a participant in the Trails Youth Initiative, which is a children’s charity for inner city and vulnerable youth. Micah says,

“Through Trails, I received a bursary to attend McGill University, where I studied International Developmental Studies. While on my internship in Botswana I became inspired by my neighbours’ children to teach yoga since they would ask me to teach them almost daily.”
