As we continue to encourage all Manatee County residents to #SupportLocal, we think it’s important to get to know the people behind some of the area’s best businesses! Welcome to this week’s edition of the Discover Bradenton Business Spotlight.
We were excited to have a chance to catch up with Nadia Taggart, owner of Beyond the Mat Yoga and Holistic Healing Here’s what she had to say…
Can you tell us a little bit about why you love what you do? What is it about your business that makes you so passionate?
|Yoga builds a strong bond between the mind and body, which strengthens self-awareness. This can change the way you process emotions, improve mental focus, the ability to handle stress, and build your self-confidence. Yoga helps me to have a better life and I love helping people to improve theirs.|
What’s your favorite thing about owning a business in Bradenton?
Beyond the Mat is more than just a business for me, it is my home and I consider all the customers to be part of my family. I love them just like how a mother loves her child. Bradenton is my happy place, where I can relax, breathe, and be happily surrounded by a great community that feels like a family.
What do you want people to know about your business?
|Many people come to yoga for physical practice. However, yoga offers so much more. It can lead to a profound sense of relaxation and peace. If you find yourself in the right atmosphere, with the right teacher, you will leave wanting more of what you find Beyond the Mat.|
What’s your favorite way to #SupportLocal?
|We work with other local businesses to promote and help each other. In our studio, you can find hand-made soaps, candles, jewelry, and many other items made by our teachers and customers. We also shop local and use local small business services to help lift each other up.|
Beyond the Mat Yoga and Holistic Healing is a semi-private yoga studio offering personalized instruction and small class sizes. Some of the most popular classes include Gentle, Vinyasa, Restorative, Aerial, and more. They also provide private yoga sessions, meditation classes, and events/workshops.
