Living Wellness and Yoga

Do you wish you had more energy?  Do you have trouble sleeping?  Do you wish that you could manage your stress better?  These are some of the questions that Living Wellness and Yoga can help you address to help you lead a happier and healthier life.   Living Wellness and Yoga’s mission is to bring holistic health and wellness to their community and beyond. Holistic health practices consider the whole person – body, mind, heart, spirit, and emotions. Their primary goal is to help you find balance in your life, becoming your happiest and healthiest self. They will listen, support, and guide you on your health and wellness journey through coaching, yoga, exercise, nutrition and mindfulness practices.  At Living Wellness and Yoga, they believe in the healing power of the mind, body, breath, water, whole foods, movement, gratitude, and self compassion.

2020 was a crazy year.  A lot of businesses had to adjust to not only the shutdown but had to cope with the restrictions presented to them in order to stop the spread of COVID19.  Living Wellness and Yoga adjusted and went to online and virtual content with most everything. In May 2020, they started an online membership platform that includes an extensive video library (yoga, fitness, mindfulness, wellness), weekly and monthly virtual classes, and an option for monthly coaching sessions.  They also offer holistic health, wellness, life, fitness, and mindfulness coaching programs to individuals, groups and businesses. They are still doing some live yoga classes but they are very limited.  Be sure to visit their website for more information on their classes and membership options!
