What got me here?

We are defined by the person we are each day, and we have the ability each day to change that definition. At a young age I suffered from the first of a few traumatic events in my life, and for awhile those events defined me. They changed how I viewed myself and those around me. My experiences defined how others viewed me. It took me a long time to realize that I could change that definition.


Learning to love myself and find satisfaction within instead of from an outside source is a necessity to a healthy lifestyle, one which provides great personal pride for overcoming the obstacles in front of me. No path is free from branches, rocks and holes but if you can find the beauty and growth in those branches, rocks and holes than you define your path instead of it defining you.


There are left over consequences of those early life experiences that I will be left with forever, but its what I choose to do with it that matters. 

So what is Pink Umbrella?

Pink Umbrella is a place for empowerment, healing, peace, learning, relaxation, joy, strength and hope. 

It's a place where there are no judgements only support. Where we all work together to help you find the person you want to be and to love yourself. 

Pink Umbrella consists of 2 buildings, Cedarvale Cottage a 100 yr old home that has a treatment room currently the location of registered massage therapy, reflexology and hot stone massage. The nutrition centre, our club meeting areas and a rental suite. 

On June 12, 2017 we started the foundation for the main centre. This will host larger events, yoga, meditation, and more.
