Exhale Studio launched in 2008 as the first ladies only studio in the Dubai, UAE offering Yoga, Pilates & fitness classes. Lily joined our team as General Manager before our launch and spearheaded the launch operation at the time ensuring all aspects of the business set up were accounted for: operations, scheduling, and hiring process to name a few. Lily then successfully launched our second branch in 2010 as part of our business development initiatives and managed to single-handedly run both operations smoothly. Lily’s efforts in the setup and operations of Exhale aided in Exhale securing multiple industry awards and establishing Exhale’s reputation as a leading industry operator in the area.

“Ljiljana has helped me start up Flo studio. Her experience in the Pilates & Yoga industry has helped me so much when using her consulting services as her company is like the one-stop shop for anything to do with the fitness field. I hired her when this was just an idea on paper and she helped me build a strong concrete ground starting from the business idea, designing policies, contracts, to recruiting excellent staff and sharing all those amazing tips on how to market and grow a good base of followers. She has been a great asset to our team, going up and beyond her agreed work-scope to support the project. I look forward to continuing working with her in future.”

She has helped me with the business development, choosing the equipment, creating a class schedule, prices, policies, helped with the creating our website, set up of all social media channels as well as completing the recruitment and even organizing a photo shoot. Thank you, Lily.
