Good Habits & Self-Care

Our philosophy is pretty simple: Wellness and self-care are rooted in Good Habits. The better your habits, the better your life. 

These are our Essential Good Habits for Self-Care – our Niyamas.

1. Sleep

2. Daily Movement

3. Healthy Food

4. Managing Stress and our Stress Response

Our Mission is to make good habits and self-care rituals simpler and more enjoyable to create and sustain.

Our Values

Gratitude

We mean authentic gratitude, not just good manners. Feeling thankful and appreciative of all that we have received in life, and all that has brought us to where we are now (even the hard stuff) is an important part of self-acceptance. And experts have found that gratitude is positively linked to greater happiness and well-being.

Transparency

Being honest in what we do and say, practicing full-disclosure, and using clear communication. Easy to say, but sadly not  always the norm in people or products. We commit 100% to list each and every ingredient contained in Niyama Wellness – everything. 

Canadian & Female Owned

Founded, owned and operated by a Canadian female entrepreneur.. Our wellness products are made in Canada and all our supplements are licensed by Health Canada. We believe in the Canadian values of openness, respect, compassion, willingness to work hard, being there for each other, and searching for equality and justice.

Kindness

To ourselves, to family, friends, strangers, animals, and our planet. Kindness is contagious – each act of kindness creates a ripple that moves outward, wider and wider, farther and farther. If you can be anything in this life, why not be kind?

Quality Without Compromise

Such an over-used word, but what does it really mean? To us it starts with quality ingredients – the best we can source, then Professional grade, made-in-Canada, GMP manufacturing processes – in a properly inspected, state of the art facility licensed by Health Canada, with each product scrupulously verified using strict controls, and then tested with stringent quality assurance methods right to the end of each product’s expiry date. What does this mean to you?  It means that you can trust these products, and every single ingredient in them to be safe and beneficial for your health until the end of its expiry date. That’s quality at Niyama.

Innovation

To us, innovation is about providing better solutions to existing or emerging needs – with the goal of improving the lives of everyone who uses Niyama products – on and off the mat. We  promise to keep improving our current products when new ingredients or studies become available, and to continue seeking out new ways to nourish and support your wellness, now and in the future.

Natural Tradition

So much of what we know about natural healing has been passed down through centuries, generation to generation, in the form of Traditional Medicine. Be it Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Aboriginal, or Traditional Herbal medicine, there is so much value in these tried and true remedies – and so little in the way of side effects that it just makes sense to make them part of your own wellness regimen.  Nature is powerful. Respect to the Mother.

Niyama's Founder

Jillian Mariani

Jillian Mariani (she/her) is the founder and general manager of Niyama Wellness. She is a Canadian woman entrepreneur, registered yoga teacher, certified sleep coach and natural wellness geek. She also holds the (sometimes challenging) roles of wife/soulmate, mum and bonus-mum, dog & cat mum.

Jillian spent her 20+ year corporate career in the Canadian Natural Health Supplements category, in sales, marketing and product development with some of Canada’s favourite brands of vitamins and supplements. Jillian holds a BA from UofT, a diploma in Nutritional Management from GBC, an MBA from Schulich School of Business, and a YTT-200H from Downward Dog Yoga Centre. She lives in Toronto with her husband and children, and teaches Vinyasa part-time. In addition to yoga, she enjoys cooking, travel, Netflix/HBO, good books and turmeric lattes, dark chocolate, and dog walks.

Giving Back

NIYAMA IS A PROUD MEMBER OF 1% FOR THE PLANET

1% for the Planet is a member-based non-profit organization where businesses all over the world commit to donating 1% of their annual sales — not profit… sales! — to environmental non-profit organizations. These organizations work on issues that focus on bettering the planet like climate advocacy, food policy, wildlife restoration, and much more. Through active and engaging partnerships between businesses and non-profits, this global network puts their money where their mouth is.

Which means consumers do, too. Every time an individual buys a product that sports the 1% for the Planet logo, a portion of that product’s proceeds go towards protecting and rejuvenating Mother Earth.

NIYAMA + 1% FOR THE PLANET

Niyama is all about wellness and creating natural products to help us move better, sleep better and live better.  But without a healthy planet to live on, our own healthy habits start to feel myopic, and disconnected from the whole picture.  As a brand, we use only the most recyclable packaging possible, with the least footprint.  And we are committed to offsetting that footprint too - by giving back 1% of all our revenue - whether we profit or not - and partnering with non-profits in Canada to help improve the health of our planet.
