PR- Rising Star Leads The Pack In Entrepreneurship


Michele Risa: 212-889-4986


New York, NY (February 18, 2008) The new buzz in publishing is all about conscious entrepreneurship.  And on the forefront of this movement is a wise and loving businesswoman who is determined to make a difference.

As savvy in the business world as she is in the spiritual realm, teacher and motivational speaker Michele Risa comfortably straddles both spheres. “I am part of a pioneering movement where conscious business practices can be the vehicle to change the world,” said Risa, founder and director of Beyond Body Mind Spirit and more recently, Heaven School, discussed in the book “Conscious Entrepreneurs: A Radical New Approach to Purpose, Passion and Profit,” published last year. “The book dispels the myth that being spiritual and rich are mutually exclusive,” added the Manhattan Park Avenue co-op owner who has studied Kundalini Yoga with the “masters” and has been teaching the ancient practice for 12 years.

Leading the megatrend in business practices, Conscious Entrepreneurs combines the business world of making money with the spiritual world of creating miracles. Comprised of 47 chapters and individually written by entrepreneurs who bring an enlightened approach to their respective businesses, Risa demonstrates in “Heaven School – How to Create Heaven Inside and Out,” the benefits of living consciously. “My chapter offers tools and a process to dramatically improve your life,” said Risa, who recently completed a series of workshops at the New York Stock Exchange, where up to 300 employees learned, among other topics, about transforming negative energy into positive results, strengthening the nervous and immune systems, concentrating and focusing the mind, overcoming sleep deprivation, increasing energy and vitality, discussing nutritional information (complemented with a great tasting lunch) as well as acquiring techniques to de-stress their lives . . . all accessible right at their desks.

As a lifelong explorer – she has visited almost 50 countries, even while training for two NYC Marathons- Risa is intimately connected with living consciously. In fact, she begins each day at 5:30 or 7 a.m. by leading a live 35-minute dial-UP yoga teleconference involving breath/movement/sound, before running in Central Park with Shanti, her English Cocker Spaniel who frequently observes the 15 classes offered through Beyond Body Mind Spirit, which is also the name of her web site. “I wouldn’t have the anchor and energy every day to accomplish what I do without a daily practice and meditation,” stated Risa, who also produces her own Yoga show on cable TV, offers free seminars at Gilda’s Club, and speaks at dozens of blue chip corporations such as Viacom, Forbes, Boeing, as well as leading hospitals and universities.

As for Conscious Entrepreneurs, Risa feels her chapter describing “Heaven School” offers a little “peace” of bliss on earth. “Throughout time, man has consistently resisted. But the greatest gift we can give,” she concluded, “is to see how powerful we really are by creating worldwide bliss.”

What People Are Saying. . .
I just completed Michele’s 90-day MORE program. As Michele will remind you, if you decide to study with her, things don’t happen to us; they happen for us. Michele happened for me just when I needed what she is committed to teaching. Commitment is the key word because she is always thinking of what she can do to help others live happy, successful lives filled with joy. She takes care to really understand what each of her students needs and instinctively suggests just the right message, yoga exercise, meditation, food, experience, etc., that will resonate with them to help them courageously live the life they want. Michele is a gift you deserve to give yourself when you’re finally ready to live your best, authentic life.

...I have suffered from emotional eating for 6 years, during which I have juggled and switched through different therapists and treatment options. I continued to feel "stuck" as the approaches focused on the past and why I acquired my disease. ...Michele's plan of remaining present- right here, right now- in addition to helping me choose love for myself, has allowed me to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually... Michele is a true gift from God.

The benefits have been significant. My reason for doing this yoga is to improve and maintain good health. Each morning class provides me with the motivation to get up and improve my physical and mental strength. I also think one of the greatest things about Michele’s 365 Yoga Course is I can join a class any day of the week, drop in at any time during the class and leave at a time that works for me and my schedule, from anywhere I am.
