Fran Dunn--Owner/operator Breathing Space Tantallon, NS
My involvement with Jenny & Blair and Breathing Space Yoga Studios started over 10 years ago. Our friendship and business relationship strengthened when I purchased the Tantallon studio 4 years ago. The Core Values of Breathing Space echo my own and I am proud and humbled to be offering authentic, joyful, and heart centered experiences at our studio. Much love and gratitude to you, Jenny and Blair!
Krystall Macleod--Owner/Operator Breathing Space Sydney, Cape Breton, NS
Joining the Breathing Space team was the best business decision I could have made. The licensing model allows me to run my own show and express my own creativity while having access to expert business advice, resources and superior programming. I am proud to be a part of this award winning system that continues to elevate so many people's lives.
Kelly and Ben Green--Owners/Operators Breathing Space Fredericton, NB
My wife Kelly was looking for a change from her 9yr career in the public education system. She wanted to continue teaching, but to all ages, and we both shared a passion for affecting positive change in people's lives. Together we looked at the teachings, and business model of Breathing Space Yoga Studio, and the fact is it's different from any other yoga experience in the market today. The authenticity and credibility that Jenny and Blair have built behind their name over the last 10 years has proven to make all the difference when opening a new studio in an already competitive market.
From Jenny partnering with respected individuals and groups in health and wellness to the developed yoga content designed for studio delivery, all the way to the business and marketing support provided by the rest of the BSYS team, Kelly and I have had nothing short of a premium experience upon joining the BSYS community.
Own a Studio
- Do you dream of owning your own business?
- Does the idea of building your business with the support and guidance of an experienced team as opposed to going it alone feel right for you?
- Do you have a keen interest in working within a cutting edge, innovative system driven by a highly inspired team of leaders?
- Are you passionate about helping people discover vibrant health and inner peace?
If so, a Breathing Space Yoga Studio charter may be ideal for you. For the past decade, from our base here in Nova Scotia, Canada, we have been building our reputation, developing a strong system and demonstrating leadership like no other in the yoga community. And we are looking for strong, inspiring, active and dedicated yogis to join our growth.
Becoming an entrepreneur is a life-changing and exciting venture. The idea of being your own boss, making your own decisions, and choosing to live each day where you are really making a difference reflects the way most people long to show up in the world. What many do not realize is how challenging business ownership can be. There are many lessons to learn, various obstacles to overcome, and the reality that it takes time, effort and skill to build a strong presence within the market place. In fact, research shows it takes an average of 5 years to work out the kinks and start to operate in your flow.
That speaks to why a community charter is a smart path to business ownership for many people. Drawing on the experience, lessons learned, and support of those who have walked the path for you, your chances of early and sustained success are much greater with a community charter system.
Another practical reason to buy a charter is that your investment can be researched before any significant expenses are incurred. With a new business start-up, you will likely feel overwhelmed and uncertain with many of the decisions to be made. It is not unusual to experience cost overruns and marketing missteps. The Charter is a smart way to avoid these pitfalls.
With a Breathing Space Yoga Studio, we have already done the research and legwork for you. From helping you develop your studio’s business plan to defining the ideal class and product offerings for your geographic region, we are ready to help you every step of the way.
