We had the good fortune of connecting with Helen Lee and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Helen, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
We were in the middle of a pandemic and everything in the world seemed unknown. Anxiety was at an all-time high and being locked at home was hard to process! I went from practicing yoga at a studio 4-5 days a week to being home alone most of the day. I knew I would go crazy if I was unable to connect with people and continue practicing yoga. I created this business to make yoga accessible (physically and financially) for everyone!
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My online yoga studio offers yoga to everyone! It is affordable and something you can do in the comfort of your own home! It all started during the Pandemic and everyone was ordered to stay home. I knew we needed to continue connecting with one another, even virtually, and yoga was a wonderful way to stay connected. Yoga calms the mind and body – which in the middle of an unknown pandemic, it is exactly what we needed!
I am here to offer yoga to everyone, no matter your yoga experience! Yoga is for all people and a wonderful way to heal physically and mentally!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would take them for a walk around Percy Priest park on a Saturday morning after grabbing a bagel and coffee at Star Bagel in Sylvan Park. After our walk, we would shop the local and antique stores around town and end with dinner at 5th and Taylor in Germantown! Maybe grab drinks at a rooftop bar downtown to cap off the night!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
The yoga studio I attend in Nashville has the most wonderful teachers and students! They encourage me daily to become a better person from the inside out! Each teacher encouraged my dream to purse yoga teacher training and improving my daily yoga practice! Yoga heals the body and mind with amazing yogi friends and mentors!
