Funky Petals Airdrie is a business dedicated to making the day brighter and happier for anyone who comes into the store or receives our product. Flowers are a staple for all occasions both joyful and not, and we are happy to provide statement pieces for all who need them. We want customers to know that when they receive flowers from Funky Petals, they are receiving something special. As we opened in the throes of Covid-19 we realized that our work could be used to make such an uncertain and scary time brighter. In the face of adversity, we continued to bring floral arrangements to the people Airdrie and surrounding areas. We want to create a community with our customers, and we want them to know that they mean everything to us. We know that without these special people we would not be able to follow our passion of creating beautiful arrangements, putting all our dedication into making unique and wonderful flowers to share with all. Our store is a place of laughter and happiness. We are excited to meet new people every day and we are thrilled every time we can share what we do with anyone who walks in our door. We love it when visitors sit in our feature chair to take pictures or allow us to take pictures of them and post (e.g., Man Crush Airdrie, Feel the Love Fridays). We love all visitors, anyone can just pop in and see us, coffee or tea is always on. We strive to create arrangements that when anyone looks in our cooler they will be amazed at our selection and our uniqueness, but we also strive to create a warm and welcoming environment. Through this first year in business, we have had amazing opportunities to give back to the community through donating our flowers to charities and local businesses such as the Legion, Airdrie Power, Airdrie District Hospice, the Food Bank, and the Canadian MS society. We look forward to helping our community in anyway we can in the next coming year. We also showcase the product of other local vendors in our store to help small entrepreneurs to introduce what they can provide to our customers. Community is about helping one another, and we are thankful that we get to be apart of that. As our business grows, we know we can help even more. People enjoying what we can do with flowers and loving our arrangements is why we are excited to open our doors, put out our signs everyday, and greet our community with a smile.
Revival Therapeutics and Performance
Revival Therapeutics & Performance helps frustrated individuals that have lost hope in the healthcare system to find long-term solutions and understanding of their chronic pain through education and treatment. 1 in 5 people experience ongoing pain and unfortunately this pain is often accepted as normal or that it comes with age. Revival is an Athletic Therapy clinic that provides a positive environment for individuals to understand their bodies, overcome their limitations and take control of their health. You do not need to see yourself as an athlete to benefit from the treatment from an Athletic Therapist. Our services combine individualized manual therapy and exercise therapy to effectively enable clients to achieve pain-free living and improve overall health and wellness regardless of their starting point. Each appointment is an hour-long and one on one with an Athletic Therapist. During an appointment, we go through an in-depth assessment, evidence-based manual techniques, injury and wellness education as well as provide an exercise program for our clients to complete at home. We understand that each and everybody and injury is different and should be individualized. Revival works with you to unlock your healing potential and take back control of your health. Recovery requires a team approach, and that is why we emphasize client education and empower our clients to take an active approach in regaining their health. This also involves teaming up with other Airdrie businesses to provide additional services and resources to meet all of our client's needs. Some of the ways Revival achieves this is through utilizing referral networks and promotional giveaways. By working with the community, Revival encourages healthy living, returns individuals to activity, and reduces dependence on therapy all whilst collaborating with fellow Airdrie businesses.

The Yoga JunctionIt all began as a women’s only retreat business and has evolved into a growing inclusive community. Jessica's partner Tricia joined the movement in 2021 and together they have opened a Studio space in Airdrie, Alberta that encompasses the same culture that the company began with but now offers that to everyone who is interested in exploring community through yoga and connection in a studio environment. It all started with a vision to create retreats that catered in bringing together likeminded Women, to create a “soft place to fall”; a safe space where we could show up as our true selves. A place where we could stop perpetuating this lie that we are always the “sparkly version“ of ourselves that we show on Social Media! We created retreats that were all about showing up for yourself. Our moto for retreats is “showing up for yourself is mandatory, but participation is optional." You do you! If what you need is a weekend away from your day to day reality and you want to spend the weekend curled up by the fire with a book... you do you! If what you need is a weekend filled with connections, activities and being social; then you do you! No judgment! Just show up for yourself as your true self! Our retreats are one of a kind! The response has been amazing and the only thing missing was a place where our guests could come together on a regular basis... so a year later we built The Yoga Junction Studio and have opened it up as an ALL inclusive space! The Yoga Junction Studio is for everyone who is interested in exploring what community through Yoga looks like. Our foundation is based on diversity and inclusion. We are all perfectly imperfect. Our studio offers a wide range of classes for beginners and experienced practitioners. All of our classes are open to all levels, as our teachers are skilled in offering adjustments and modifications whenever needed. We offer Female identifying classes, Male identifying classes, classes for those 50+, sound baths, connection circles, specialty workshops, courses and member discounts on our Signature retreats. The most important thing to know about our studio is that everyBODY is welcome!
