Have you ever met someone for the first time and they instantly feel like home? Meeting and working with Jean Marie was the definition of easy, breezy… I suppose, I shouldn’t be surprised. I mean she is (one of the) Goddesses behind the incredible Anasa Yoga studio in the Laurel District of Oakland, California.
Jean Marie is the walking, talking embodiment of Namaste. Our recent personal branding photoshoot began like all good things should… With a cup of tea.
The minute she escorted me into her spacious studio, I felt a sense of peace wash over me. Together we went over her vision for her custom photoshoot, toured her gorgeous studio, and gained some great insights into her business.
I learned three incredible lessons from this gentle powerhouse:
1.) Peace is a choice that you make daily.
2.) The lotus flower grows in mud.
3.) You can speak softly and still move mountains.
“Thank you for making me so beautiful Mawiyah. You are a very gifted pro!
I look forward to working with you again soon.” - Jean Marie
