Reaching the one-year in business milestone for a yoga studio is a time of joy and reflection. Nearly every studio owner can look back on their first year and think of the times of success, as well as the bumps in the road. As Kelli Gabat, the owner of Wildfire Yoga in Lexington, Kentucky, plans her celebration for the studio’s year in business milestone, she looks back on her year in the industry.

Mindful Studio: What are you all doing to celebrate being in business for a year?

Kelli Gabat: We are having an open house. Anyone available can come and check out the studio. We are having six classes our teachers will teach for free so people can check out fun specialty classes. We also will be grilling out and having food. We will have some giveaways and sidewalk sales with businesses in our area. We will be having some live acoustic music in one of our classes.
