We are starting a new blog series featuring small business owners in multiple niches and industries. It is our aim to help facilitate connections and raise the visibility of small business owners around the globe. COVID-19 caused many small businesses to pivot and retool to sustain a profitable business. Sharing lessons learned will strengthen us all!
Today we’re excited to introduce you to
small-business owner, Megan Nolan. She helps driven high achieving women to overcome back and neck pain so they can live their lives joyfully energized!
She is the creator of the Wake the Warrior Within Method that combines the tools of Yoga, movement, breath work, and mindset fitness to help them create an empowering morning routine that leaves them feeling refreshed and ready for the day.
What is the WHY behind your business? What motivated you to get started?
As a Vitality Coach, I believe that Yoga provides a foundational toolset for building health and wellness. I have found in my 19 years of practicing yoga, my experience has evolved from one of focusing on the physical to one that provides me a deeper understanding of who I am and who I want to be.
It is my mission to help to elevate the energy of the planet by helping over 500 people to overcome pain in their bodies. This relief has beautiful ripple effects into all areas of their lives as it helps them to be more patient, kind, and joyful!
Did COVID impact your business? If yes, how did you pivot and overcome the challenges?
It certainly did! Before the pandemic, I was serving my community here on Maui by doing in-person Yoga at Work sessions and workshops, which was so fun and fulfilling! Due to restrictions gathering in groups was no longer allowed so thankfully we were able to keep things going via Zoom.
Thankfully, I already had an online program called Yoga at My Desk so I was familiar with the tech side of things so the transition to virtual was pretty smooth.
Given the stress and uncertainty of the situation, I felt very compelled to continue to share the tools of Yoga to help people to stay healthy and find a sense of peace and grounded. This led to me connecting to a variety of different communities around the world which is wonderful!
