Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Holly Hoffmann, Owner of Iyengar Yoga Palm Desert, located in Palm Desert, CA, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

Iyengar Yoga Palm Desert is a full-service yoga studio in the Coachella Valley. We have been in business for over 12 years serving the local population and beyond. We teach in person and on our Zoom platform.

Tell us about yourself

I first started the studio 12 years ago due to a need for highly trained and professional teachers so needed in our community. We continue to study and teach solely in the Iyengar method. Iyengar Yoga is the most widely practiced method of yoga in the world! We offer many, many years of teaching experience and professionalism in yoga, yoga therapy, and yogic philosophy.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Owning a small business for a long period of time is a challenge with a population that ebbs and flows with the season. Year after year, we remain healthy and available for our students.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Managing the schedule due to the influx of students seasonally.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

Plan, execute, and hang on!

Where can people find you and your business?
