What's your business, and who are your customers?
As a Yoga Medicine® Therapeutic Specialist trained in anatomy, spinal health, yogic breathwork, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Self-Myofascial Release, I personalize each session to meet my client's specific needs. With 14+ years of experience helping clients alleviate pain, lower stress, gain physical stamina, heal after procedures and experience safe pregnancies, I'm your partner on your path to optimal health in mind, body, and spirit.
Tell us about yourself
As a lifelong educator, my goal is to empower my students with the techniques and wisdom they need to reach optimal health physically, mentally, and emotionally. I'm a teacher, dreamer, and adventure lover who believes the world would be a better place if everyone meditated and kissed doggies daily.
As a Yoga Medicine® Therapeutic Specialist, I specialize in tailoring yoga and meditation protocols to help you meet your exact health and wellness goals. My specialties are Meditation, Therapeutic Yoga, Yoga for Mental Health, Yoga for Spinal Health, Prenatal Yoga, Yoga for Women's Health, and Myofascial Release.
My education includes university degrees in Education, Psychology, and Religious Studies. I also hold a Master's Degree in Education and Curriculum Development from the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment as a business owner is that I've mentored over 20 yoga teachers in Kansas City. I've also developed a model for Continuing Education for yoga teachers that allows yoga teachers to expand their skillet and specialize in yoga therapeutic modalities.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
The hardest part of being a small business owner is managing my time. I'm a sucker for new ideas and have a hard time saying no to clients. It's difficult to take time for myself to recover during the workweek and not over plan.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
My biggest pieces of advice for small business owners:
- ONLY choose to work with colleagues who inspire you.
- Remember to set work hours and home hours. You are not solely your business.
- Grow and scale at a rate that makes YOU happy. You don't have to do everything.
