A more apt title for this post might actually read: Phyzz Yoga: it’s not just for single client anymore! Treehouse, one of Phyzz’s newest clients, decided to open up their classes to the thirteen other nonprofit organizations that have their offices in The 2100 Building in Seattle. How great is that? Share and share alike, we always say.
We chatted up Shaunessy Jones, Treehouse’s Event Manager about her experience in practicing yoga with Phyzz ever since Treehouse became a client several months ago. Her initial thoughts? “The first class was welcoming and fun,” she says. “We were all at varied levels of yoga experience, and Peter [one of Phyzz's instructors] catered to all of us.”
After a few classes, the Treehouse team decided they’d open up their Phyzz class to the rest of the nonprofits in the building. “We got a good number of people interested and hope to just grow the class with time and word of mouth,” Shaunessy told us. “People were very receptive and grateful that a class was being offered at such a convenient location and especially that was so affordable.”
This got us thinking: not every building can come with it’s own gym, let alone a yoga studio. So being able to bring yoga to a building, particularly to a building full of consciously aligned organizations provides a unique opportunity.
“So many of my co-workers (myself included) are givers but not so great at self-care. Yoga provides a centering that a lot of other workouts do not,” Shaunessy says. “I wanted to bring yoga to the non-profits in The 2100 Building because non-profit work can be grueling and often emotionally draining. It’s hard to save the world! The world would be a better place if everyone practiced yoga.”
Shaunessy, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Welcome to the Phyzz Phamily, and thanks for sharing yoga with the rest of The 2100 Building!
