How HMC came to be....
We are not just a yoga studio.
We are your other home.
In 2001 I was asked to teach by a few friends and a group of yoga students who had found themselves temporarily without a yoga teacher. From the moment I stepped on the yoga mat, I realized that yoga is my calling. This was hard to reconcile with my otherwise elaborate plans and big dreams of working in the financial industry. To make the long story short - I obeyed the calling and started teaching. My classes quickly grew.....At the time, our area had no yoga studio and there were only a handful of yoga teachers. I rented a place on a month-to-month basis and attempted to organize a few yoga teachers into a "center." Thus, the Holistic Movement Center was born in 2002!
We underwent several renovation phases but most recently in 2011 we added the SPA which gave us the opportunity to add massage therapy to our services... and that is how we became the....
Holistic Movement Center Yoga & Wellness SPA.
We now offer yoga classes and workshops, yoga teacher training, series on meditation and personal development, weekly meditation sessions by donation, mind-body workshops with various practitioners, light & sound therapy, Reiki and energy healing and of course, wonderful massage therapy and healing body work!
There are really only a couple of reasons for our success:
1) We are indeed an amazing place with an incredibly healing vibe and an atmosphere of support and FUN!
2) We are indeed an amazing community of people who come together and truly care for yoga, meditation and personal growth, and truly care for each other. Many of our members have been with us since the very beginning. Usually, once people join our yoga family they never want to leave, and unless they have to move out of town, they usually do not leave. Everyone knows everyone else and we continue to grow with the enthusiasm of our patrons giving us the energy to do so.
As much as we love yoga and meditation, we know we live in this United States of America and we don't pretend to be from India. In our yoga studio you will feel comfortable whoever you are. Most of our community members are professionals, hard working folks from various walks of life. We also have artists and poets and a few amazing cooks. We have students in school and students of life. We have retired adventurers who are busier now, than they were when they were younger. We have many inspiring yoga stories, life stories, personal transformation stories.
With us you will be with your kind. You will be taken care of and you will be inspired.
Everyone is welcome.
E-RYT500, Meditation teacher and Reiki Master.
