Yoga Business - Relaxing and Stretching

Boho Lotus with Owner Brandy Lusicic

On Friday the class visited Boho Lotus and learned about the yoga business from owner Brandy Lusicic. Brandy opened Boho Lotus in 2016 and she is in the process of obtaining more certifications to offer more classes. She offers classes to groups and has added bar workouts.

Brandy was very thoughtful and patient when answering questions. She led the class in yoga with some bar stretching. The CEO class enjoyed the relaxation and the morning at Boho Lotus. For many students this was their first time in a yoga class and it won't be their last. 

Brandy, CEO appreciates you spending your morning with CEO and leading students in yoga.
