A Chat with Eliana Chinea at Berkeley Yoga Center
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I teach at the Berkeley Yoga Center, one of the remaining few Yoga Teacher Collectives in the Bay Area. My classes are affordable, community based, and welcoming of all bodies. Come as you are!
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
The yoga practice itself is very motivating, once you take your first class you will be hooked! The practice has a great way of reminding you of your own strength and power, even though it may be challenging physically and mentally. You are always reminded of your own potential.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I began my practice with a groupon at a studio and never stopped! I began teaching with the very specific goal to teach affordable yoga to all bodies and ethnicities. I am inspired by my students commitment and I love that Berkeley Yoga Center allows me the space to watch my students flourish
What do you love most about your job?
Teaching has been such a blessing for me in ways I could not have imagined. I am always grateful, always in service, and always thinking of ways to inspire and empower. Yoga can really do incredible things if you let it!
