Not Your Average Yoga Studio
Lindsey Nicholson, the owner of Bliss Yoga, generously gave us a few minutes of her time to tell us about her award-winning business and its superb online reputation.
The first question we had for Lindsey was what sets Bliss Yoga apart from their competition in Mississippi. Here’s her response:
“We offer more than just a class. You can come in and get a great yoga, Pilates or barre class — that’s great, and sometimes, that’s all somebody is looking for. We also go deeper than that; we really try to have relationships with our members, and we look out for one another. We’re a small town, and I think that it’s important to make that connection with people, especially in a time when everybody does everything through their phone or from home. There’s not as much face-to-face communication, and I think it’s nice to connect with other people.”
Lindsey went on to tell us that the founder of Bliss Yoga offered solely yoga classes, but since she’s purchased the business, they’ve expanded to offering Pilates and barre classes.
We also wanted to know what their mission is at Bliss Yoga and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Lindsey had to say:
“It all goes back to the community. That has been my mission since I bought the business in January 2017 — I wanted the yoga studio to be about community. So we try to offer free pop-up classes throughout the community. We try to partner with other local businesses. We want our studio to thrive but we also, as a bigger part of that, we want the community of Columbus to thrive, to be healthy and to be health conscious about their lifestyles. I say that I’m going to be doing yoga until I’m 90, and it’s not about a fad exercise; it’s a lifestyle choice, and I think it’s a difference…”
Building Success With a Sense of Community
Lindsey attributes Bliss Yoga’s strong online reputation to the sense of community they offer in their studio:
“I think people leave us great reviews because they come to the studio and experience the sense of community that we offer. We have highly qualified instructors for the training, and they’re constantly continuing their education. The classes are awesome, but it’s about more than that; it’s about the sense of community we are really trying to cultivate where we are welcoming to people that come, and we have strong friendships and look forward to seeing each other at class. All of those things go along with having great yoga, Pilates and barre classes.”
When asked how Bliss Yoga has gotten their name out there outside of building a powerful online reputation, Lindsey said:
“We try to host special events at the studio, like workshops or classes. We just in the month of March did a women’s empowerment class/brunch to coincide with International Women’s Day. We try to do things like that to involve people who may not be part of the studio, but they’ll come to a special event just to see what we’re all about and try something new.”
Clearly, Lindsey has a lot of knowledge when it comes to growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s her advice for the many other business owners out there:
“It’s a lot of work. I feel like I’m on my phone a good bit doing marketing on Facebook, Instagram and our website. You just have to be constantly present to keep your name out there.”
Congratulations to the team at Bliss Yoga for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Lindsey, for taking the time to speak with us!
