Just like most transplants, we all came from elsewhere, but Summit is now our home.Q: What experience do you have in this field? A: Juli has been teaching fitness and wellness for over 18 years, 12 of which have been at the Breckenridge Recreation Center. She dabbles in the media working for TV8, and she additionally publishes Rocky Mountain Bride Magazine and owns a marketing and website development company. Jason Rodon, owner of Trimworks, came to yoga in 2000 as away to rehab and prevent sports injuries after physical therapy fell short. It soon transformed into a way of living and has blossomed into the desire to share the profound benefits of yoga practice. Jason is also a registered yoga teacher. Leslie Ross is the owner and founder of Babes in the Backcountry and a 19 year resident of Breckenridge. She brings her expertise in physical education and event planning to MYS.Q: What sets your business apart from other similar businesses?A: There is no other studio in Summit that is more connected to the yoga community both in and outside of Summit than MYS. We have teachers on the schedule from Frisco, Boulder, Silverthorne, Manitou Springs, and of course, Breckenridge. Each bring their experience and knowledge to MYS on a weekly basis.Q: What types of customers do you hope to reach in Summit County? A: Yoga is for everyone and that is why we strive to accommodate all styles. It is our desire for the community to open their thoughts on what yoga really is. You don’t have to be flexible to practice yoga; in fact, the less flexible you are the more we want you. MYS offers programs for every ‘body,’ every mind and every price point. If you haven’t tried yoga, MYS offers a non-competitive environment. Our summer attendance has been spectacular and we have begun to establish ourselves with Summit visitors as the “home away from home” studio for those with a regular practice. Q: What are your plans for your company’s future? A: We plan to continue bringing a diverse workshop and special guest teacher lineup to augment our broad schedule. We are also working towards offering an accredited teacher training program in 2012 and several yoga retreats to exotic places – including Mexico and Costa Rica – are already in the works.
