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 Discover Bradenton Business Spotlight. We recently had a chance to catch up with Erin Geraghty, owner of Thrive Yoga & Fitness. 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?
|“I love being able to run alongside my students and remind them how amazing they are when they might forget. Watching my students become brave, face their fears, and show up for their lives fully is the ultimate satisfaction for me. Growth is beautiful and I’m incredibly lucky to witness it.”
What’s your favorite thing about owning a business in Bradenton?
|“I’ve always loved Bradenton. It’s the perfect spot. It’s close to the beach without beach prices, has an expanding and growing downtown, and a great community of people looking to better themselves. Plus we have like 5 Wawas, what’s not to love?”
What do you want people to know about your business?
“We teach authentic yoga. Yoga is more than just touching your toes. It’s a profound way of living with integrity, love, and awareness. At Thrive we teach all 8 limbs of the yogic path for growth.”
What’s your favorite way to #SupportLocal?
|“I pretty much only eat at local restaurants, I love visiting other local studios and I almost always buy gifts for friends in local boutique shops.”
