What's your business, and who are your customers?

Prana Wellness helps working minds achieve peak wellness through education and the tools of yoga. We provide corporate wellness programs for companies, 1:1 clinical Yoga Therapy, perinatal yoga, and an enterprise speaking series on "Wellness for the Working Mind." We also offer a wide variety of wellness events, workshops, and private classes.

Tell us about yourself

I consider myself an educator and a "Motivator in Chief" of my business. I am inspired to help people heal their own bodies. I spent seven years as a CNN producer and decided to leave the chaotic newsroom life to pursue wellness. I traveled to Rishikesh, India, to study yoga after experiencing a panic attack at work. While in India, I decided to become a full-time entrepreneur and tap into my passion for motivating others to heal.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment as a business owner has been creating a life of freedom I love. Freedom to me means living fully in my purpose and letting passion guide me. I feel energetically connected to my work, which motivates me daily because I created this life for myself.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

One of the hardest challenges of being a business owner has been giving myself boundaries. As an entrepreneur, my mind is always running, so setting boundaries for myself is challenging. Boundaries are even more important when you're running your own business. You have to be accountable and allow space for mental rest. It's tough!

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

The top 3 tips for aspiring biz owners would are:

  1. There's never a "right" time! The time is now. Do it scared, and push your perceived limits.
  2. Learn, learn, and learn some more! Allow yourself always to be a sponge. Learn something new each day, and be intentional about educating yourself in your field. You can never know enough. Be willing to be the dumbest person in the room, and ask questions.
  3. Live authentically. People don't buy businesses; they buy how you make them feel. Your business will be successful if you can tell your story, show your values, and be authentically you.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

My current mission is to spread more education and understanding about Yoga Therapy as clinical practice. Most people have no idea what it is! Yoga Therapy is a 1:1 personalized practice to heal specific mental and physical ailments through integrative health and the tools of yoga. Yoga Therapists are trained to work alongside medical doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists.
