Mother Trucker Yoga and Hope Zvara Featured on Start Up on PBS
Meet Hope Zvara
From yoga teacher to trucking fitness expert Hope has changed helped change thousands of lives over the last 20 years using her simple step-by-step strategies and what she calls her “toolbox. As the CEO of Mother Trucker Yoga, Hope is seen as a leader in the trucking industry for health and fitness. And has been featured in Forbes, Yahoo News, and Overdrive Magazine; showing drivers how they can go from unhealthy and out of options to feeling good again with her unique easy to follow approach to health, fitness, and life all while living over the road as a trucker.
Helping others is what I do. And for years I helped those in pain on the yoga mat, but four years ago that all changed when trucking fell into my lap. One of many things I have learned being an entrepreneur is the journey is not easy, and when people make it look like it is, you can almost always believe there is more to the story. My journey has not been easy, but I am so grateful I am where I am. I love my drivers and know what I can do for the industry.
And a few months ago I met someone who loved my story and what I am doing and asked if I wanted to be featured on the show she produces called START UP. I felt like it was a meant-to-be moment. And I said yes. This process has been both amazing and so hard to WAIT for to come to life! I’m just happy and honored I can help an industry that so desperately needs it.

What is START UP About?
Join host Gary Bredow as he travels across America interviewing small business owners to hear their personal stories and find out what it really takes to start a successful business from the ground up. Energetic, inspirational, and educational, START UP is a fast-paced series that captures the heart and imagination of anyone who has ever dreamed of starting their own business.
START Up is a two-time Emmy nominated show with a reach of roughly 6 million viewers.
How Did START UP Come About?
“The idea for START UP came at a particularly low point in my corporate career. The giant media company I was working for had laid off 85% of my co-workers, and I realized that I would never have the kind of security that I wanted by working for someone else. However, I had no idea how to start a business. I wondered how people were able to do things like lease space, get a loan, and essentially create something out of nothing. I thought that maybe if I heard the stories directly from the people who have done it successfully, maybe it would give me the confidence to start my own business, and essentially control my own destiny. Outside of a small commercial and documentary production company, ironically, START UP was my first truly successful start-up. I have since opened a multi-media production facility and have started several other small businesses. Without the insight of other successful entrepreneurs, I certainly wouldn’t be writing this today.
I believe that this is the age of the entrepreneur, and as job security has increasingly become a thing of the past, we have no choice but to become self-reliant. Small business is the foundation of growth in America, and it truly starts with one person, with one vision.”
