The fall yOHga schedule has released!

Hello, Optimal Healing Community! It's a beautiful day, and to say I'm excited is an understatement!

We have been anxiously awaiting the opening of our gorgeous studio, it will not disappoint! It's worthwhile to note this studio has been a career goal of mine for a very long time. Hosting all things "bodymind" under one roof is precisely what an "Optimal Healing Environment" supports, individually and collectively.

What is the "bodymind" you ask? Dr. Candace Pert, a neuroscientist and pharmacologist, researched the links between mind, matter, and emotions. Pert had found the tangible connection between the body and the mind in her research. Pert called it "bodymind" demonstrating its direct link in the term because there is no duality between the two; they are interdependent. Pert's research validated the communication and relationship between the brain, endocrine, immune, and nervous systems.

I share all of this to help you understand our WHY. Our minds, bodies, spirits, and collective energy are connected. Providing a unique space and utilizing those energies for good, self-compassion, healing, connection, and restoration (the list goes on) will change the world, even if it's one tiny cell or vibration at a time.

OK, I'm done geeking out....Without further ado, The OH Studio is OPEN, and we hope you will find some way to join us, whether it's a class, therapy, group, or massage.

Here are a few things you should know about the OH Studio:

  • A health waiver is required for all of our spa and studio activities. Please pre-register for your first class or service online. This helps to ensure you have all the proper information ready to go to get started safely. Trust us; it will save trees, time, and frustrations right before class.

  • All classes are ten dollars now through December 31, 2023. Why? We want our classes to be accessible to anyone interested. We will likely move to a community gift model in January 2024, but since this is such new territory for OH, we will see how this goes and ensure affordability. If you can pay a little more, that's cool, it will support our instructors and/or ensuring someone who cannot afford the class accessibility. ALSO, it's so easy...there's nothing to remember, count or wonder about. We are all about keeping it simple!

  • Parking: We have a small parking lot. If you find on-street parking on East Main, take it! We try to save our parking for those with accessibility issues and quick drop-offs of pick-ups for appointments. If you happen to park in our lot, please be courteous to others and park smartly.

As always, reach out to us if you need clarification or support. Email and text is always the best way to communicate with our team, as we are a small, growing business. Many of us wear several hats and support people in person all day.

Thanks for following OH, and I hope to see you at the mat. -Ashley
