Today we’d like to introduce you to Kareem Mitha.
Kareem, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I first visited Laughing Frog back in 2013 after a good friend recommended I check it out. I immediately felt a strong connection to the space. It has so much potential to grow and nurture an amazing community. I quickly became friends with the previous owner Chris Temkin and soon started volunteering helping check in classes, organizing hikes, and providing help with sales and marketing. After a couple of years in this role, Chris was ready to move on to the next chapter of his life and it was a natural progression to becoming the new owner of the studio.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
In hindsight, I have to say things have progressed pretty smoothly. We’ve renovated the space, added lots of great classes and teachers to the schedule and celebrated with events and parties. As a first time yoga studio owner, there were definitely challenges along the way but I’ve tried to see them as learning experiences and just have fun with them. In addition to running the studio I also have a full-time job, so I’ve been juggling two careers and worked every day for close to two years. Would be nice to take a vacation soon!
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Laughing Frog Yoga – what should we know?
True to our name, the crew at Laughing Frog Yoga likes to keep things light and fun. We believe in living life with a smile on your face and with pep in your step. What better place to start than your yoga mat?
Whether you’re here to stretch, sweat, unplug from your day, or soak in some pearls of wisdom, we’ve got a class for you led by a member of our carefully selected crew of yogi rock stars. We welcome all levels, all experiences, and all open minds.
We are more than just a yoga studio. Laughing Frog Yoga is about building a community and investing in relationships beyond the mat. Join us for a hike, a bike ride, or a day at the beach. Let’s explore this amazing city together!
We are excited for you to join us! Come take a class, stay for some laughs, and make a friend or two. We look forward to sharing in your practice!
Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Our people are absolutely vital to our success and I’m so fortunate to have a roster of amazing teachers on our schedule. They all have their own unique teaching style and unique knowledge to share with our community. It’s been really great taking their classes and getting to know them off the mat.
