Overcoming Injury to become a Fitness Entrepreneur
Joining the many talented entrepreneurs who have featured in the Leadership Gazette is the wonderfully inspiring Vicki Baumann - WOW! what a wonderful introduction
Vicki's life-changing career into yoga started on 1st August 2012. After suffering a traumatic foot injury due to a hit and run driver in London, she wondered if she was ever going to walk again.
Rather than being depressed, Vicki found it more of a 'liberating' moment.
A year after all her operations and rehabilitation, Vicki took to her yoga mat - big time! 🔸 It was during this time that her yoga teacher invited her to join his teacher training course 🔸 By 2017, she qualified as a yoga teacher
🔸 On Friday 28th February 2020, she left behind her previous career to focus 100% on her yoga business
"My new life and journey had begun," Vicki remembers fondly.
Vicki creates a space to remove any boundaries that many of us set ourselves. As someone who has overcome an injury, she understands what it takes to struggle back to fitness.
When asked: what are the most important values to you and the business that you lead? Vicki replies "to provide a supportive and encouraging environment for all my students. To enable them to believe that their body and mind is capable of much more than most of us think".

I love working with new female clients who are at that stage of their life where they want to take control of their health and wellbeing and ensure that, whilst their body may be changing, that they remain strong and flexible into their next stage of life.
All my regular yoga classes are live online - something that my students find incredibly helpful as it is convenient and you can make your practice area as comfortable as you require.
