I took my first yoga class just just a few years ago. That’s surprising when your wife is a yoga teacher and even more surprising when you own a studio.
Like a lot of men my age, for whatever reason I flat out refused to go.
It was only when my physiotherapist recommended yoga as part of my rehab from knee surgery that I even gave it a chance. From that first class on, I was hooked. My flexibility and balance improved and I was strengthening muscles that I didn’t even know I had. Equally importantly, I had found a place where my usually hyperactive mind could finally relax.
It’s always been my dream to build a business. I’ve spent my career in accounting and though I wouldn’t have changed a thing, I’ve never felt completely fulfilled by my work. I wanted to be closer to the customer experience and I wanted to do something that fosters a community and makes people happy. When Stef and I started talking about this studio, it felt right. To be able to share it with my best friend is icing on the cake.
My friends joke that I should teach a class called Seb Flow (for beginners, taught by a beginner). While that’s pretty unlikely, you’ll find me behind the desk or around the studio, doing whatever I possibly can to make this the best experience for our students, our teachers and our staff.
