What led us to open up Health Yoga Life our Yoga Studio in Boston 3 years ago today? We saw a sign! A sign from above – well… more like in a window! At least that is what we always tell our yoga students, in explaining how we four sisters came to open our yoga and coaching business, Health Yoga Life in Boston.
In 2011 the economy was stagnant, and all of us faced some career transition. That’s when Vyda saw a small for lease sign in a second story window in Beacon Hill. Details of the space seemed doable for a yoga studio, so it brought us to the moment of choice: continue to pound the pavement or take a leap and go into business together. Examining our priorities, we knew that if we wanted to lead happy, healthy, and balanced lives we would have to own our own business. More traditional career paths, although may afford other benefits, often strip you of the chance to prioritize health over profit. Being in business for ourselves affords big freedoms, most significantly giving us control over our time. We work a lot to make our business a success, but even so we all feel that we have significant work-life balance, which has made living our dream a daily reality. Health Yoga Life opened its doors on 11.11.11 and we are proud to be rolling into our 4th year. It was a lucky sign!
