Meet Heather Grisco of Bird Rock Yoga in Pacific Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Heather Grisco.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I took over ownership of the studio a little over 7 years ago. Prior to that, I was working for the Department of Defense. My job with the government was not very personally satisfying. Yoga had always been a good outlet for that. The more I practiced, the better I felt and I wanted to be able to share that feeling with others. With that in mind, I enrolled in teacher training and started teaching as a side job. Soon the teaching became more and more enjoyable while the government job turned to be less and less. In 2010, I decided to take the leap and make yoga my full time career. I found this amazing little studio in PB and took over. I dove right in, shaping the already strong yoga community into what it is today and have loved every moment of it.

Has it been a smooth road?
There are always bumps in the road, from maintenance issues to staff emergencies. Luckily I have an amazing group of teachers and students that always pull through. We just help each other out so the struggles pass with ease

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Bird Rock Yoga story. Tell us more about the business.
We’re a lightly heated yoga studio that specializes in Vinyasa yoga. We offer some Yin classes as well as monthly workshops in various styles in order to bring new offerings to our student base to facilitate growth in their practice.
We are a very community based studio. It’s a personal experience, which sets us apart from others. We care about each person that walks through our door.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
While yoga stays somewhat consistent (in that people are always doing it). There are shifts in trends within the overall whole of Yoga. What styles, events, workshops are more popular than others often changes. We do a great job of staying on top of that.
