A Chat with Yoga Parkside
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Each of our instructors creates a unique, accepting and safe environment for their students. They provide more than just instruction, but a space for transformation and personal growth. Our studios are beautiful and cozy, with hardwood floors and mirrors.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
I keep clients motivated by keeping them focused on their mind/body connection together with proper alignment and execution to achieve results. We keep coming back down to the foundation of the pilates method and execute from there.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Yoga Parkside was started when the leadership at Parkside Lutheran Church reached out to the owner about a beautiful unused dance studio located within the building. We then began to offer yoga, dance and pilates classes, and now have three studios within this gorgeous active church building.
What do you love most about your job?
Witnessing the transformation that occurs when a client gets in touch with their body through their pilates practice, when they can feel what their body needs through their practice such as perhaps more rest, better nutrition or additional nurturing. To me that is the real break through.
