REVIVE YOGA OPENS ON DI
The first dedicated yoga studio on Daniel Island will soon be up and running. Revive Yoga plans to open its new studio at 225 Seven Farms Drive, Suite 108B to customers on October 1, with 10 days of free yoga!
Owner Ashly Grzyb is a 200-hour registered yoga teacher and certified prenatal yoga teacher. Classes include Power Flow, All Levels Flow, Vin 45, Slow Flow, Gentle Flow, Vin to Yin, Yin, Pre/Post Natal Yoga, Kids Yoga, Mindfulness and Meditation, and Candlelight Meditation.
Grzyb began her yoga practice eight years ago in a prenatal yoga class in New York City. Three kids later, she was “stressed to the max and had symptoms of postpartum anxiety as a stay at home mom trying to hold daily life together for her family in Manhattan,” she said.
“Yoga was the consistent place I could retreat to breathe for myself without the demands of others and reduce my stress and anxiety,” added Grzyb. “It became my consistent practice to take a time out to refuel.”
After a move to Daniel Island in January 2018 and ready to find personal fulfillment beyond motherhood, Grzyb embarked on teacher training and “found how rewarding sharing yoga was to others - especially other stressed out moms who don’t give themselves permission for self care,” she said.
“Many moms today feel pressure to be the perfect mother while their own passions or wellness suffers as they serve their families,” continued Grzyb. “Seeing a void for this type of refuge on Daniel Island, I rallied the existing teachers on DI and asked them to join together to create a yogi home and studio on DI. So we did!”
Revive Yoga, a vinyasa yoga studio, will host a “Friends & Community Preview” at the new studio on Thursday, Sept. 19 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. For more information, visit https://www.revive yogadanielisland.com.
BLACKBAUD CEO NAMED ONE OF AMERICA’S MOST INNOVATIVE LEADERS
Blackbaud, the world’s leading cloud software company powering social good, recently announced that its president and CEO, Michael “Mike” Gianoni, has been named to Forbes 2019 list of America’s Most Innovative Leaders. Gianoni was recognized alongside other prominent CEOs, including Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg. Forbes compiled their ranking based on four essential leadership qualities of top leaders: media reputation for innovation, social connections, track record for value creation and investor expectations for value creation.
Since Gianoni took the helm as president and CEO of Blackbaud nearly six years ago, he quickly built his reputation as a transformational leader for the company. His significant accomplishments at Blackbaud include the transition of Blackbaud’s entire solution set to the cloud, issuing the company’s first social responsibility report and opening Blackbaud’s new LEED Gold world headquarters in Charleston. Also, under Gianoni’s leadership, Blackbaud’s customer base has grown 55 percent by expanding its offerings through Blackbaud’s cloud architecture, which has enabled the software company to serve new markets, while also better serving its existing customers. Blackbaud is now one of the top 30 largest cloud software companies in the world, according to IDC’s rank of Worldwide Software as a Service (SaaS) and Cloud Software Market Shares.
