Warm welcome to you!
What if you found a place that honors the heart and wholeness of yoga? A place that encourages you to begin exactly as you are. Where a base of self-acceptance provides a sturdy platform for learning and growth at your own pace.
Our yoga provides a gentle beginning with plenty of depth to move into. Self-acceptance is one of the things I remember most about my first visit to Kripalu Center (Stockbridge, MA). Finally, I found yoga without a sense of competition. Instead, an invitation to be curious and learn to witness myself without judgement.
Yoga is much more than physical movement. It is learning about skillful action in movement and in life. The movements and breathing reduce stress and helps us create strength and flexibility. The philosophy and meditation help us become mindful about our thoughts and actions. Relaxation, at the end of each class, invites you to unwind tension on all levels, promoting healing and good health.
Here at WholeHeart, we love working with women and men who are seeking a slower, mindful pace with inspiration to support you. This doesn’t mean you won’t warm up and flow more quickly at times in class, but our intention is to help create yoga with self-awareness. Awareness happens when we allow ourselves to slow down.
You’re in the right place if you’re wanting to breathe easy, warmup gradually, learn mindfulness practices, hear stories of yoga in real life, practice meditation-in-motion – and of course! – Experience the physical benefits of growing stronger, more flexible, more filled with life.
We look forward to being with you.
