Daily Inspiration: Meet Latesha Grant

Today we’d like to introduce you to Latesha Grant. 

Hi Latesha, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
Hello, my name is Latesha Grant, I was drawn to the practice of yoga, searching for peace and balance, after my first year at College of Charleston in 2000, while obtaining my B.S. in Biology. I grew a fondness for yoga and it became a part of my life. Even though from time to time, I left my mat with frustration, my mind and spirit would make me return to regain inner peace. I completed my 200 hr. Teacher Training at Holy Cow Yoga. Which gave me the ability to share, how yoga transformed my life and showed me clarity in guiding my students through beginning asana poses, intermediate, and then inversions safely with impeccable confidence. I am certified in Yoga Therapy, Pre/Postnatal Yoga, Yin Yoga, Yoga for Cancer, Yoga for Athletes, Senior’s Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, and Restorative Yoga. I’m completing a 300hr certification in Ashtanga Yoga by end of September 2021. I’m insanely excited. I have traveled to Paris, Dominican Republic, Canada, Amsterdam, and Hawaii sharing my gifts of yoga. 

Off of my mat, I spread good Karma devoting time to underprivileged kids and volunteering in any capacity needed to help people. I plan to start helping Homeless people with Teesha Cares. I believe in my heart that ” You haven’t changed anything in life until you’ve changed the life of someone else” and “The smallest things make the GREATEST impacts”. 

Lastly, I tell all of my students, that YOGA reveals the TRUE YOU! 

Thanks again for this opportunity. 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
No, it definitely hasn’t been a smooth road. Being an entrepreneur is an emotional roller coaster, mentally and physically. You have to put God first, be ready to work countless hours, and believe in yourself. Some struggles were understanding the financial components of my business, along with marketing and hiring the right staff. 

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I’m most proud of never giving up during my weakest, most vulnerable moments. It’s been a rough road to build my business and hire people that share the same organic mindset to help other people. My practice of choice is Ashtanga Yoga, it is a powerful tool that tunes my mind and body. It improves mental space, balance, and lifestyle coordination. My practice allows a better sense of calm to my mind and body each day. It allows me to embrace my mindfulness at different levels. 

Teesha Yoga Studio is set apart from other studios because we embody our community with love and the traditional styles of yoga. We stay away from all commercialized aspects of yoga. Lastly, we look forward to bringing out the TRUE YOU!! 

What do you like and dislike about the city?
I love the people in my community. I’m not fond of the traffic.
