Archived: Trina – Sacred Space Yoga Centre: Assisting people in becoming healthier and stronger physically, mentally, emotionally, and most importantly spiritually

iCrowdNewswire - Jul 24, 2015
Personal Story

My name is Trina Campbell and I am proud to say I live, work, and play in Detroit. I’m also proud of my only daughter being a University of Michigan graduate…even though I graduated from Michigan State University.

I turned to yoga originally to make money to support my daughter’s figure skating. I taught myself yoga and marketed it to the figure skating clubs as a must have for their skaters. For fourteen years my daughter and I traveled all over the world competing, and never did I think something I needed to do as supplemental income would lead me down this path.

Yoga helped save my life. I turned to yoga while going through an unexpected divorce in 2010, losing my home in 2011, and unexpectedly losing my job after 22 years in 2012. It was during this time that I strongly turned to my faith and yoga. It continues to drive me daily. In 2015, I opened my own yoga centre in the heart of Detroit because I believe in the healing properties of Christ-centered yoga. While I know yoga is not a panacea, I do believe that yoga can build a bridge between Detroit communities during our rebirth.

Business Description

Sacred Space Yoga Centre (SSYC) opened its doors on April 18, 2015. SSYC is a long awaited dream of mine. After operating Exalt God Only Yoga as a mobile yoga center (EGO Yoga) for seven years, a brick and mortal yoga studio was the next progression in order to provide healing yoga to more people in Detroit. SSYC’s mission is to be an extension of God’s love by unselfishly servicing, encouraging, and positively impacting the lives of others. We do this by assisting people in becoming healthier and stronger physically, mentally, emotionally, and most importantly spiritually.

We hope to start targeted programs to expose ALL (troubled youth, elderly, domestic abuse survivors, etc.) to the healing properties of yoga. Two programs we’ve begun organizing are H.A.N.D.S. UP yoga (Healing and Nurturing Deprived Sons) and SELFIE Yoga for Girls (Building a Better Reflection).

Discovering, funding, owning and operating a business has been a dream come true. While I am proud to be an entrepreneur, I’ve come across a challenge marketing and building a new yoga following. This is where the Kiva Zip loan comes in.

What is the purpose of this loan?

Since I recently opened, I need to market and advertise in my community and beyond. This Kiva Zip loan will allow me to:
1. Advertise on radio

2. Do a bulk mailing of flyers

3. Acquire proper signage for the building

4. Assist me with SEO improvements

5. Update my marketing material design
