At Honor Yoga, we’re committed to bringing the benefits of yoga to as many communities and people as possible through our holistic wellness franchise. We believe in the potential for everyone to live healthy and happy lives and that it’s possible for business owners to enjoy a meaningful life while earning a living. These ideas come together beautifully in each and every one of our Honor Yoga franchise studios, and it’s what our brand is all about. There are many people who work hard every day to grow the Honor Yoga name and to help our franchisees thrive. But perhaps no one exemplifies that commitment better than our founder, Maria Turco.
A Leader in the Holistic Wellness Franchise Space
Our mission, values, and vision inform everything we do, and it all starts at the top, with our founder and Chief Yogini, Maria Turco. Maria has been a leader in the fitness industry for years and has spoken, written, and consulted on various aspects of the field, helping others to learn more about good physical and emotional health. For Maria, and for all of us at the Honor Yoga holistic wellness franchise, yoga is a journey, one meant to open up hearts and minds and allow for the exploration of all possibilities — and with each franchisee who becomes part of the Honor Yoga family, we grow that potential!
“At Honor Yoga, we are in the business of helping others grow through yoga,” says Maria. “Yoga is for everyone,” she continues. “Male, female, old, young, spiritual and not, fit and on a fitness journey, injured or not. I felt there weren’t enough studios that were truly welcoming to everyone, and it was making yoga untouchable. We seek to break this mold.”
Honor Yoga’s holistic wellness franchise studios are all designed to help students feel empowered to make the changes in their lives that they aspire to and to allow them to enjoy better, more centered lives. With each new studio that opens, we help to build healthier happier communities, centered around our passion for yoga.
Practicing What She Believes In
“I launched Honor Yoga in 2013 to help others achieve their greatest potential through the teachings of yoga,” explains Maria. “Later, we launched the Honor Yoga Foundation, our nonprofit arm of Honor Yoga, which brings yoga to at-risk and underserved communities.”
Even though Maria is busy growing the Honor Yoga brand and making important contributions to the health and wellness industry every day, she also makes sure to find time to practice what she preaches.
“I rely on my routine, my mantras, and my movement throughout the day,” says Maria. “Everyone has self-doubt and the feeling that they are not good enough – I feel that, too. But whenever I feel that way, I go through the actions that make me happy – exercise, yoga, repeating mantras, and surrounding myself with positive people.”
Maria and the hardworking team behind the Honor Yoga holistic wellness franchise are all living truly purpose-driven lives, and when you become part of the Honor Yoga family as a franchisee, you can, too!
