Blair Fillingham, a Carnation business owner, was flown to New York recently to receive a “Made It Award” from New York-millennial-moms website, Romper.com. The Made It Awards were created to honor women who dreamed up a new product, idea, or business and made it a reality – for themselves, their kids, and for other women. They are presented to 10 women across the U.S.
Fillingham received the award for creating a virtual yoga studio called MTRNL. Casses specialize in prenatal and postnatal yoga, and moms from around the world join her via live video at her home in Stillwater.
“There are some incredible yoga studios and master teachers in the Snoqualmie Valley, so when I decided I wanted to create my own studio I knew that I did not want to compete with the established studios,” said Fillingham. “Also, I have students that I love and miss from when I taught in Seattle. I wanted to make it easy for them to continue doing my classes.”
Fillingham was born in Australia, moved to Singapore in 2004, and to the Pacific Northwest in 2008. She is married to her high school sweetheart from Wagga Wagga, Australia. The mother of two has practiced yoga for more than 10 years and taught prenatal yoga for more than three years. She also has 15 years of marketing and communications experience with technology companies.
