Positive Vibes Stretch Into New Business Venture

“Think positive, forget about stress and be healthy. That’s at least part of the focus behind Loveland Yoga and Core Fitness, a new business in downtown Loveland opened by Christi Sullivan. Sullivan worked at Orchards Health Club for seven years as the group fitness manager before venturing out on her own, which she admits is a leap of faith in this economy. But hey, think positive. ‘We are in a recession and I’m like, ‘Here we go, let’s do this,’ Sullivan said. ‘But people need a place to go and forget about all that stuff. This gives them a new outlook.’ So far, Sullivan said her yoga classes are growing and she feels good about the business. The classes are a variety of yoga styles, and all are heated to 80 degrees. But it’s not just yoga at the studio. Sullivan also is a certified CHEK practitioner, or Corrective Holistic Exercise Kinesiology, and she is a holistic lifestyle coach. She works with athletes and people who just want to get in shape on training, eating and healing. It’s a whole body, holistic approach to health, training and wellness. Often in her work, Sullivan said she would suggest to her clients to take yoga classes, which was the impetus for the idea of combining her practitioner work with a yoga studio.”
