BUDU Wellness and Fitness is something that has been in the works for about 6 months, but truthfully it's something that's probably been subconsciously brewing for about 4 years now. So BUDU Wellness and Fitness is a complete re-branding of my previous tumbling and cheer business Dazzling Athletics. I was in business for about a year down in LaBelle, FL before relocating to the Tampa Bay Area where I’ve resided for 4 years now. I was 24 when I started my previous business and let’s just say I'm older and wiser and my vision is clearer than ever before. It was actually my significant other who encouraged me to jump back in so this is what 6 months of slow brewing with a side of 4 years of waiting has created. :) I started this company and brand because I wanted to bring the different things I love (teaching, coaching, yoga, peace, balance, & physical fitness) into one beautiful, magnificent space that is positive and makes overall wellness obtainable to everyday people who are struggling to find the balance between working, being parents, trying to give their kids access to opportunities, being a spouse, everyday happenings, and just still trying to BE YOU and DO YOU in the process. So the name creation of “BUDU” came from a quote I saw one day in my daily motivational quotes (unsure of the original source of the quote). The quote was “Be You.Do You.For You.” The quote quickly became a mantra for me as a reminder to always be you and stay true and authentic to yourself, always do you and don’t let anyone stop you from going after what you want, and always do it for yourself and no one else because true happiness comes from within. So that is how the creation of BUDU Wellness and Fitness came to be. So I believe that through providing these important and well needed services in ONE space and catering to the whole mind and body, that as a parent or a sibling or a spouse or someone single or a daughter or a son or a boss or an employee, we can leave at peace, whole, and balanced knowing that we are doing the necessary work needed to be our best selves for those we love in our lives. And most importantly, just creating a safe space for you to be you, do you, for you!
Owner Behind the Magic:
A little bit about myself. I am a 29 year old, Mississippi born and raised gal. I have been a Florida resident for 8 years. I have a puppy named Peyton who is the sweetest schnauzer EVER!! I have one nephew and niece who reside in Mississippi with the majority of my family. I am an ESE Specialist/ESOL Coordinator/Resource Teacher at both an elementary and middle school. I work with students who need extra layers of support academically and behaviorally and ensure they receive the services that they are legally inclined to receive. I have been working and doing cheer in some capacity for 16 years. I worked for Universal Cheerleader Association and Varsity for about 7 years total. I have also tumbled since the age of 6. I don't know how much tumbling I'm doing these days myself :) but I enjoy spreading the knowledge and skills. I have been practicing yoga for about 7 years and I am currently RYT-200 Certified in Baptiste Yoga but teach both power and slow flows for everybody and EVERY BODY!! Yoga has been a very grounding and electrifying practice for me! It has brought much needed balance and peace into my life and allowed time for me to connect with God! But of course, please know that yoga doesn't have to be spiritual unless YOU want it to be! Remember, be you, do you, for you at all times. I have overall been a pretty active and fit individual since childhood. I was apart of my high school's power-lifting team so I've been a huge fan of strength training. I want to bring a fun and effective way of fitness through group classes! I love life, nature, any outdoor activities, positivity, music, learning, yoga, teaching, coaching, taking photos, and good quality time with those I love! I especially enjoy spending time with my love, my significant other Davien! I would love to and hope to see you join our BUDU family and community!
