December’s TBoKY ROCKSTAR: Michelle Tanner Gruntz

Each month we feature a ROCKSTAR for The Biz of Kids Yoga (TBoKY).
A TBoKY ROCKSTAR is a Kids Yoga & Mindfulness leader who makes a unique impact
in their community.

Hey Michelle, tell us about your Kids Yoga biz!
I started teaching Kids Yoga many moons ago and haven’t looked back! I have taught in school settings, Yoga studios, parks, Girl Scout Troops, family privates, birthday parties and more.

During the Summer of 2018, I opened a Family Yoga studio called Vista Yoga & Wellness where myself and staff teach Yoga and Mindfulness in many different ways, including in-school classes and events, after school and library programs, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, summer camps, public and private classes, Yoga parties and corporate family Yoga events.

A TBoKY ROCKSTAR is committed to their Kids Yoga Biz with leadership and contribution to community … What makes you a TBoKY ROCKSTAR?
I saw an opportunity years ago to bring Yoga to an unserved area of the city. After much research, planning and patience, Vista opened its doors officially in August of 2018!

What are you currently most excited about in your biz right now?
Opening Vista Yoga & Wellness and bringing Yoga to the families in my little corner of New Orleans!

What is a personal habit or resource that contributes to your success and that you would highly recommend to other Kids Yoga Teachers?
Daily self-care! It is non-negotiable! Having a toolbox of things that I can pull from at any point to replenish myself – fresh green juice, mediation, my own personal Yoga practice, gardening, massages, meal planning & prepping, Epsom salt baths, reading, listening to music. I have a large supply of things in my toolbox that I have cultivated over the years that support my own well-being so I can, in turn, support my students and their families.

How has The Biz of Kids Yoga influenced your business?
Jodi Komitor and the TBoKY community have been everything to me! From Training, to business resourses & support to private coaching, Jodi has been a support to me through all of the ups and downs in my own personal and professional life since my first training with her in 2012.

How can people find and connect with you?
You can connect with me through social media (FaceBook and Instagram) or email.
