We’re excited to introduce you to the always interesting and insightful Yoga Your Way LLC. We hope you’ll enjoy our conversation with Yoga Your Way below.
Yoga Your Way, appreciate you joining us today. Was there a moment in your career that meaningfully altered your trajectory? If so, we’d love to hear the backstory.
The formation of Yoga Your Way has been a defining life changing journey for my partner Heather MacKay and me. Heather and I are about as different as two people can be on the outside. Heather is an experienced Yoga Practitioner who had practiced yoga for over 20 years when we met. I was a career executive and not very active. We bonded over our love for the water and giving back to people. Heather helped me on my yoga journey and she truly was the inspiration to get me to be the person I am today. We decided that we wanted everyone to feel good in their bodies and that every body was different. There is no one size fit all in yoga or wellness. It was from their we created Yoga Your Way. We first created an online virtual platform that is unlocked no other. It is designed for every level of yogis and has instructional videos for each pose, recorded yoga classes of all styles: Vinyasna , yin, hatha and even family yoga and we also offer live “virtual” classes so that any one can participate. As I said, we bonded together with our love for the water and it was always our dream to offer Standup Paddle Board (SUP) Yoga. We never thought it would be possible to many hurdles to surpass but here we are today with a fleet of 40 boards offering SUP Yoga in Carlsbad CA. We have expanded our love for Yoga and now conducted annual International Sup Yoga Retreats. Our dream is more than we ever could have imagined.
Great, appreciate you sharing that with us. Before we ask you to share more of your insights, can you take a moment to introduce yourself and how you got to where you are today to our readers
Heather and I while different on the outside are kindred spirts -soulmates. We took our dream and made it happened but we were true to ourselves. We wanted our Yoga to be able to help every body. We decided that the Carlsbad Community had given us so much we wanted to continue with our growth to give back. We have made our services affordable but we also give back to our community. We offer not only fund raisers to help women’s shelters, animal shelters and other local charities we make these events health. Each fundraiser we host we provide complimentary paddle board and Sup Yoga so people can get fit and give back. We also host Sup Classes for special needs families at no charge so people can have a healthy bonding experience. We are so broad of our work and that we are named a finalist in the Carlsbad Business Achievement Awards for Community Impact Business this year. That was one of our most proudest moments.
Training and knowledge matter of course, but beyond that what do you think matters most in terms of succeeding in your field?
Training and knowledge are critical to be successful in any business but the key, in our opinion is to love what you do. No amount of training can replace a true connection and love for what you do. That’s passion will shine through and people will want to connect with you and your business because the light shines bright. The passion Heather and I share for wellness yoga and the water is with us everyday and it is what our customers and clients embrace.
Any stories or insights that might help us understand how you’ve built such a strong reputation?
