A Chat with balance bodywork
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We only offer classes in the therapeutic-based Viniyoga style, which focuses on adapting poses to work with your body. Using your breath to bring awareness into your body, you can feel what's happening with the poses, helping you find adaptations that work for you, and avoiding injury.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
Viniyoga is not your typical "gym" yoga. Using breathwork and meditation in our classes helps you not only improve the function of your body, it also decreases stress and anxiety, helping you connect with yourself in a deeper way. Students return because they love how they feel after a few classes!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I became a Viniyoga teacher as a way to help my massage clients improve their well being. Massage and Yoga both help to release negative movement patterns along with reducing stress and anxiety. Offering Viniyoga classes was a natural next step, and adding more teachers lets us offer more classes.
What do you love most about your job?
Yoga classes are a very accessible way for people to become aware of habits they'd like to change - both in their bodies and in their minds. We love being a catalyst of positive change!
