Aparigraha Yoga: Balancing the Tensions of Sustainable Entrepreneurship
Aparigraha Yoga was founded in 2012 as a sustainable entrepreneurship venture in Ontario that sought to balance the environmental, social, and financial components of the triple bottom line (3BL) while providing high-quality yoga classes in its community. The founder intended to utilize synergistic solutions, which fully integrated each 3BL component, to address any business problem. In 2018, she identified two issues at her studio that challenged her belief in sustainable entrepreneurship and the reality of always finding synergistic solutions. The founder needed to either develop new synergistic approaches to these issues or modify her belief in sustainable entrepreneurship and select which components to favour in which situations.
