Featured Retailer: Smiling Dog Yoga

Manduka is proud to introduce Smiling Dog Yoga in San Luis Obispo (Manduka's hometown) as a featured retailer!

When Lisa Terranova-Pittelli and her husband considered opening Smiling Dog Yoga in San Luis Obispo, CA a few years back, they were excited at the prospect of a yoga studio in a beautiful rental property, which includes two studios, ample retail space, a treatment room and large courtyard. However, they knew that to see it work financially in these slower economic times, they would need to make the most of their space. Today, Smiling Dog consists of a yoga studio, vegetarian cafe, massage and acupuncture and eco-boutique. In fact, their yoga program, while it's the heart of the business, makes up half of the total revenue. The other limbs of Smiling Dog are an integral part, not only of its success, but of the overall client experience. Its set them apart in the community. Lisa says, "One of the unexpected pleasures of my job is managing our retail boutique and working with like-minded companies such as Manduka who are putting eco-responsible business practice to work."
