One local entrepreneur has turned his passion into a second career.
Steve Feldman is the owner of Yoga Shelter, a chain of four studios created in 2004, which teach an in-the-moment form of yoga that empowers students with tools to achieve harmony of mind, body and spirit.
Feldman believes in a holistic, healing perspective. His message at the Yoga Shelter is that everyone is accepted, and encouraged to accept themselves and others without judgment.
“Our goal is to create a space that’s welcoming for all people – the physical expression is a vehicle we use to connect with ourselves,” Feldman said.
As CEO of Yoga Shelter and YogaMedics, a medical-focused sister business, Feldman manages four local studios, which serve more than 11,000 people monthly.
Hundreds of weekly classes are offered in West Bloomfield Township, Birmingham, Grosse Pointe and Royal Oak.
Feldman believes it’s imperative to offer a way to minimize stress, improve physical and mental health and find acceptance.
“Throughout my career, I worked in industries that were all about generating profit,” Feldman says. “I never gained personal fulfillment from my work. Thankfully, I have found a way to build a career beyond mere commerce — one that inspires connection with others and with something greater than all of us.”
