A Chat with Yoga with Abby
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I teach gentle, welcoming, body-positive yoga especially for busy adults. I specialize in teaching seniors, beginners, and larger-bodied yogis, who sometimes feel uncomfortable trying out yoga classes.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
I focus on keeping a positive attitude. Yoga is a lifelong practice, not a six-week weight-loss gimmick. I think we need to be gentle with our expectations of ourselves and I try to make students feel welcome resuming their practice after a break.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I fell in love with yoga 16 years ago because it makes my body feel good and helps my mind relax, and I just can’t keep it to myself!
What do you love most about your job?
I love helping people. I have students approach me and say that they’ve wanted to try yoga but been afraid to, and my classes made them feel welcome. That’s the best feeling.
