Meet Lori Rissetto and Rebecca Galla-Jones: Co-owners of The Yoga Hive
We had the good fortune of connecting with Lori Rissetto and Rebecca Galla-Jones and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Lori and Rebecca, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
Our business is Yoga. We teach people how to live comfortably in their bodies. We start each of our classes with a short opening meditation to get you centered and to begin incorporating breathing. We continually cue throughout the class to keep you focused on your breath, because as a society, we tend to hold our breathe a lot. With the breath we can release tension, manage stress and allow the body safely open, creating more flexibility, strength and overall well-being. Cultivating community within our yoga studio is our mission. We are a safe and inclusive space where everybody can find themselves in a supportive environment. We believe the work we share, this practice of yoga, has a profound and positive impact on the individual, creating a pay-it-forward outlook, which in turn brings more joy to the world at large.

Conversations with the Inspiring Rebecca Galla-Jones and Lori Rissetto
Today we’d like to introduce you to Rebecca Galla-Jones and Lori Rissetto.Rebecca and Lori, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Both Lori and I have been yoga teachers since the early 2000’s. We have known each other, through the Atlanta yoga scene, for over a decade, we even spent time teaching together in a local studio. The practice of Yoga has enriched and enhanced both of our lives. After several discussions and some soul searching, we decided to explore the option of partnering up and opening a studio together.
