In this episode of Shop Talk, Louanne interviews Shelley D’Amico, owner of Namaskar Yoga Studio in beautiful Parksville, BC.
With yoga, Shelley transformed her grief into a purpose-filled, intentional life that she has lovingly shared with her clients in her studio over that last five and a half years. For Shelley, yoga is for everyone, every body, at any age, no matter what physical shape you are. As Shelley puts it, “If you can breathe, you can do yoga.”
As a yoga studio business owner, it’s a little different. Shelley isn’t always peaceful and harmonious 24/7. She is human after all! And business is business. It’s tough on any owner. There are risks and lots of decisions to make in order to grow and thrive.
But yoga is there for Shelley and when she needs that peace, she knows where to find it.
She also knows she’s not a typical yoga teacher. You may find her blasting her music, cracking jokes and teaching her students all about the wonders of wine. Yes wine!
As a certified French Wine Professional and a Food & Wine Pairing Professional, Shelley knows what she’s talking about and looks forward to “pairing” yoga and wine in her future retreats.
Sounds like my kind of yoga studio. How about you?
