Geni has been an entrepreneur the majority of her life. From owning a restaurant at 23 called “Donnelly’s Saloon” to now owning an
appraisal business and founding a non-profit called Yogamour, Geni is not a novice to the business realm.
Yogamour works under Seva, or selfless volunteering towards creating a social change. The organization partners with various organizations in the Frederick community such as The Heartly House, a shelter for people who have suffered from sexual abuse and domestic violence. Geni is trained in teaching trauma informed yoga, to help these individuals overcome their past. She is offering classes and teaching other yoga instructors and therapists the process of teaching sensitive populations.
As well as impacting locally, Yogamour makes a world of a difference globally. Yogamour is currently working with communities in India and Thailand by creating free healthcare clinics, dental clinics, and providing education.
Geni says the practice of Yoga does many things for an individual; managing stress, lowering blood pressure, and increasing brain functioning. Yoga does indeed have healing benefits and is making a difference not only on an individual level, but throughout communities.
