Co-founded in 2002 by Colin Grant, the Pure Group has grown from one yoga studio with two teachers in Hong Kong to over 30 locations with more than 2,000 staff and around 600 yoga and fitness classes a day across Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Singapore and New York. Through the brands Pure Yoga, Pure Fitness, Pure Apparel, nood food and MyPureYoga, Pure Group now encompasses yoga, fitness, active wear and healthy eating as an integrated community dedicated to helping people lead a balanced 360 degree lifestyle.
Good health and athleticism have always been a part of Colin’s lifestyle. He played tennis semi-professionally and impressively ranked as the top-seeded player in Hong Kong for over a decade, participating in various international tournaments such as the Davis Cup and Wimbledon.
Colin has had an entrepreneurial spirit since a young age, including multiple successful business ventures. He fell instantly in love with yoga in 2001, and embarked on opening his own studio with the help of friends Bruce Rockowitz, Almen Wong and his first yoga teacher from Whistler, Patrick Creelman. Six months later, Pure Yoga was born. He subsequently started Pure Fitness in 2003, launched Pure Apparel and nood food in 2013, and MyPureYoga.com in 2016.
Pure Group has since grown into the undisputed leader in Asia’s wellness industry.
