Q&A with the Owner
Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
We encourage people to work at their own pace in a non-critical environment, and help them to continuously improve (again at their own pace). We show them that yoga can be relaxing and fun.
Do you believe in the maxim, "No pain, no gain”? Why or why not?
No. One does not have to be in pain to get a good workout. A workout can have an element of challenge (which is important); however, it should not feel like a chore.
When and how did you first develop a passion for fitness?
This was instilled at a very young age and has become an integral part of who I am as a person. For me, working out strengthens and soothes the body, mind, and spirit. It gives me a sense of calm and overall, just makes me feel good and boosts my spirit.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
At La Tropiqua we want to show people that working out is great, but it is also important to take some time to fully unwind by pampering oneself a little. We should not feel guilty about doing this, as it's an important part of taking care of ourselves.
