From 2015 to 2016, Ascension Float Centre went from an idea to a goal to a reality.
Floating has changed the lives of both Ascension owner/creators, Harley and Rian. They believe in its transformational capabilities, and now they are fortunate to be able to share their experience with others.
Harley and Rian met in Portland, Oregon in 2015. They had both recently experienced their first floats, which ultimately led to their meeting at the annual Float Conference, as well as taking part in an apprenticeship program with an awesome local float centre.
Back at home a week or so later, after deciding to pursue opening a float centre (not entirely sure how he’d make it happen), Rian serendipitously received a message from Harley to see how he was making out with his plans. The two started a dialogue and it wasn’t long before Harley packed up and moved from Kelowna to Airdrie to join Rian in introducing floating to the people of this community.
The float industry is made up of people who are kind, open minded, goal oriented, passionate, happy and always willing to help others. In addition to being able to share floating with others, the opportunity to be a part of such an incredible community of float enthusiasts was what made Harley and Rian’s decision to follow this path an obvious one.
Thanks to everyone for your help, knowledge, support and guidance along the way!
Rian and Harley,
Owners and business Partners
