About the Speakers:

Robyn Parets

Robyn is the founder and CEO of Pretzel Kids, the nation's first branded kids yoga and mindfulness web platform. She has been in the yoga business since 2004, first as a studio owner in suburban Boston and now with Pretzel Kids. Prior to that she was a financial journalist with Investor’s Business Daily (IBD) and several other media outlets. Robyn realized she would rather be an entrepreneur than write about them and took the leap into the startup world. 

In addition to running Pretzel Kids, she is also a business coach for female entrepreneurs, furthering her mission to help women create successful businesses. Robyn loves to spend time with her 3 grown sons, 2 dogs and 1 husband.

Chris Lucas

Chris is a co-founder and CEO of Ompractice. He is the former digital director for a large yoga brand, as well as a certified yoga teacher since 2010. As a teacher, he taught all over the US, including six years at events for the Obama White House.
