We had the good fortune of connecting with Nakia Caesh and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nakia, how does your business help the community?
The most abundant resource on earth is the ability to heal. Healing is essential for our community to move forward. Healing from something as deep as generational wounds, PTSD, frozen shoulder down to a simple sprained ankle. Healing, recovery, reflection, introspection.

That is the “Theory” behind Stretch Thoery.

A functional recovery boutique located in the Cascade Heights community in Atlanta Georgia.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I developed Stretch Theory during the pandemic. I saw an opportunity to take advantage of sliding market. I had an abundance of time; So I wrote a continuing education manual and had it certified by the NCTMB. I taught a few classes to get my chops back then I went on a serious grind.

I created a boutique that had a minimal foot print and required no staff. Found an brilliant commercial property in my neighborhood and got into negotiations with the owner.

I’ll be honest with you, I’m a beast, I actually give no fucks. I don’t see things as being hard. I see things as if I have no other choice but to succeed. I have no plan B.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
That’s easy. Inman Park.The Beltline Nuff said

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Nathan Rogers at Bach Fitness. Nathan is an incredible fitness instructor who drills down into the core fundamentals of the body and movement. We combined our skills sets and design a recovery studio for Bach Fitness, which planted the seeds for me to develop my own business.
