Founder Story 📚:
”I (Adam Horn) created More Mindful Yoga (MMY) after personally realizing how impactful strong company culture and mental health care are for employees' well-being. After facing mental health struggles of my own, I found solace through yoga, community, and counseling. After obtaining my finance undergrad, I returned to school, obtaining my Master's in Clinical and Mental Health Counseling and becoming a certified Yoga Teacher. I created MMY to combine what was so helpful to me, yoga, community, and counseling, and bring it to business in the form of a holistic wellness program.”
Adam is seeking to grow his client base and expand his network. If his mission resonates, we encourage you to reach out.
We are excited to hear and share YOUR founder's story. Fill in this form to be featured.
