A new chapter for Bliss Yoga has begun! The founder of Bliss Yoga, Jill Williams, has decided to step down as director to spend more time with her family and dive deeper into class instruction. Marissa Ceci will be taking over as owner and director and she is beyond excited for this opportunity!
Both Marissa and Jill are passionate about continuing to offer outstanding Yoga in Columbus, and growing our yoga community in Mississippi. They believe that ANYONE and EVERYONE can be a Yogi, and all are truly welcome at Bliss Yoga.
A note from Marissa: When I heard Jill was looking to hand off Bliss, I immediately jumped at the opportunity. While I have much to learn about Yoga and running a studio, I know my passion for yoga and my MBA background will empower me through this journey. I will also be participating in the teacher training program we are hosting through December and am thrilled to explore the world of teaching yoga as I become certified. I am so thankful for Jill and what she has created here in a small town. Her warmth and welcoming attitude are simply contagious and keep people coming back class after class. In her words: "in yoga we do not believe in 'no pain no gain.' We believe in no pain, lots of slow gain!" As I dive head first into this endeavor, I remember her words and choose to live by them. Thank you Jill for this opportunity, and thank you yoga community for your warm support as we make this joyful transition! Namaste, Marissa
A note from Jill: Bliss Yoga Studio has been my baby for 5 wonderful years! I've enjoyed sharing my love for yoga with Columbus locals, visitors and CAFB pilots and spouses. I am truly excited to hand over the reins to Marissa! No longer focused on operating the business, I can deepen my own practice, further develop my skills as a teacher and be a mentor to Marissa. I have no doubt her passion and enthusiasm for yoga and our studio, combined with her marketing skills and business sense will make her a fantastic leader and visionary for yoga in Columbus, taking Bliss Yoga to the next level. With Marissa's high expectations and attention to every detail, I am anxious to watch her make improvements to our studio space, update our online presence and grow our community! She and Karen Stanley, with neonFROG, have already made great strides in this area and I am truly grateful for their help and expertise! I warmly welcome Marissa to studio ownership and to becoming a yoga teacher. It is with pleasure I begin this new chapter in my life. I am truly confident you will all join me and embrace Marissa in this adventure and we'll all benefit from the wonderful things to come! In Love and Light, Jill
