I am the owner of Invoke Studio, an Indianapolis based yoga and pilates studio, with two locations. As the proprietor, most of my day is marketing, management and strategy. I am grateful to own a company who makes client's lives healthier and happier.
It's a rare and happy day when you see a vision realized. So grateful that my persistent emails (read: probably annoying ) resulted in @colleensaidman and Rodney Yee visiting @invokestudioindy - a Hoosier homecoming for Colleen. These internationally renowned yogis were the perfect hosts of Invoke's debut @indianalandmarks class. Check out the venue if you need an amazing Indy space! by @amandareynolds Photography
