Meet Natalie Jamieson, our newest Yogadown Ambassador. You may know her as the owner of Mint + Maple... the cutest, chicest, clothing boutique in Okotoks (if you haven't been yet, please stop reading this article and go right now). However, she is so much more than a girl and her little green house, she is an embodiment of true Okotokian spirit, an all-around sweet heart and ambassador for women everywhere pursuing their dreams and passions. And WE were lucky enough to sit down and have a chat with her about her passions, dreams and her love of yoga!
"I love Okotoks, and we work together to make it how it is.
The Town of Okotoks just gave me a chance to fulfill this dream that I had for a really
long time... and I am so grateful and I feel so lucky that
I get to work and its also my passion too."
One word to describe your first Aerial experience at Yogadown: "Balanced"
Q: What inspired you to open Mint +Maple?
A: You know what I didn't really know what I wanted to do while I was doing my schooling
and then it kind of hit me that I had this goal, this dream. With lots of inspiration,
support and encouragement from my sisters and parents, and determination the dream became a reality. My family just encouraged me and I went for it. The Okotoks community has really accepted me into the community and have fallen in love with the shop. I have put my whole heart and soul into Mint + Maple, into making my dream come to life.
Q: How did Mint + Maple get its name?
A: Mint +Maple… People always think we are an ice cream shop or
a maple syrup shop (only in Canada) but it just stems from my
sweet tooth, I cool eat baked goods all the time. The name actually came from two of my favourite treats that my mom makes!
"I am not sure I would be able to find a town as special as this that
would allow me to be this successful and have this dream"
