A Chat with Camel City Yoga
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are Winston-Salem’s original and only Bikram Yoga studio. Recently bought and remodeled, the studio has a fresh, new feel. We love new students and provide a space (and fun challenges) to help you establish a routine. Warning: this yoga works––you may lose weight, de-stress, and feel amazing.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
We have “challenges” for students. For example, “take 20 classes in 30 days and win a super awesome prize!” We change them monthly/seasonally. Bingo happened. Students can also always do the 60-Day Challenge: Take 60 classes in 60 days and you will change your life.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I started the business because Bikram Yoga is the only routine/practice I’ve found in my life to be both effective and reliable, every single time. I’ve practiced a variety of yoga styles for over 15 years, played sports, lifted weights, ran, etc. Many of which I still do, but nothing compares.
What do you love most about your job?
I love that I can offer a service I truly believe in and feel good about. I love that I provide guidance, and motivation for students to do their best, to heal and strengthen themselves so that they can be who they want to be. I love creating a space that is meaningful. I love that we have fun!
