Today we’d like to introduce you to Ali Singer.
Ali, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I’ve always wanted to start a business and have been coming up with ideas for as long as I can remember. I started practicing yoga out of a love for movement and fitness, but it was the meditation and philosophy that made my life much better and kept me coming back to my mat. I did a teacher training to learn more about the practice and gain teaching skills and I saw that this was a growing industry with some pains that could be resolved. Yoga Hub is my resolution. Our mission is to bring yoga to more individuals, support professional instructors and preserve the sacred traditions of the practice.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
With entrepreneurship, there is no road and that is one of the biggest struggles. In the first two years of doing businesses, I found myself “wasting” efforts on trying out different services and markets. I often felt like I was spinning my wheels and getting nowhere, but the effort was not for nothing – every “failure” helped me refine the business model and it’s finally starting to get a bit easier. Finding a business partner helped tremendously, even in just having someone to soundboard ideas with and stay motivated for. Advice for those who are just starting their journey is to revisit your vision daily and make sure all your efforts are aligned to get you to that place. Also, you must focus on the positive when bad things happen – what did I learn from this? How can I improve? Make lemonade! 😉
what should we know about Yoga Hub? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
As Yoga Hub CEO, I’m known for bringing top-quality yoga programs to hotels, offices, and residences, as well as building brand partnerships. I’ve been known to host fun yoga events that are open to the public and take place in non-traditional venues like Pier 6 and Pop Allston. I am most proud of the Woman Power Yoga event, which took place at the Paradise Rock Club in January 2017. As a yoga teacher, I specialize in leading meditative flow classes with fun and unexpected playlists.
Who do you look up to? How have they inspired you?
Beyonce inspires me because she works hard and owns her femininity.
