Rollin' with my hOMies the past year!
After taking some type off of teaching at a yoga studio after having our daughter. I got to a point in 2016 were I knew I wanted and needed to get back to my yoga community. I started teaching for a new studio in Northern Colorado called Om House Yoga. Starting from scratch can seem like a daunting yet fun challenge. The most amazing thing over the past year is to see the community grow; friendships created and grown and people becoming like family!
Seeing the clients become friends and head out for coffee before or after classes. Or staying after class and chatting with others in the class. Truly makes my heart happy and part of my WHY for teaching yoga= community.
The owners desire for our studio is to create a community as well, so it is great to have that be one of our goals through our studio. As with their mission statement,
“Our mission is to create a loving space to connect authentically—using breath, movement, and meditation to inspire self-growth and transformation of the physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies. It is our hope that our “house” becomes a second home; a place of community, friendship, healing, compassion, and joy. don’t know how to exactly explain it but the yoga community is something special. It is a home away from home.”
They also have incorporated childcare with some of the classes, which is so helpful for lot of moms and even some dads being able to come to the studio with their kiddo(s) and get in their ‘zen zone’ for an hour to take time for themselves. Also, seeing these kids having fun together making new friends and even asking their parent’s to come back because they have had so much fun! Just another great aspect of our studio community, getting kids in there to be able to see their parent’s staying healthy.
We also are special to Northern Colorado and Colorado because of our Radiant Heat! We are one of a few studios in Colorado with this type of heating system. As taken from the studio’s website,
“Many of you know the traditional benefits associated with hot yoga, but did you know there is an even safer way to get your hot yoga fix? We have designed our studio using an infrared heating system to offer a range of benefits not found in the traditional forced-air systems used in most hot yoga studios. Infrared or radiant heat is the transfer of heat from a warm object (radiant heat panel) to a cooler object (your body). This heat feels more like being heated by the sun than having dry air blown at you from a fan that may contain dust, allergens, or other pollutants. It is quiet, it is safe, it is better for our environment, it has many health benefits, and it just plain feels good.
Do you love the feeling of the warm sun on your skin like a cat bathing in a sunny window as much as we do? This type of heat is not only soothing, it has many therapeutic benefits. Infrared heat produces radiant heat waves that work to heat up water–since our bodies are made of mostly water, this type of heat directly warms our muscles and connective tissue, allowing for greater flexibility, increased range of motion, and tissue healing. Infrared also works on our circulatory system, as it opens up the capillaries to allow more oxygen to flow to our organs, aiding in lowering blood pressure. Not only does the use of radiant heat have these added benefits, it also offers the traditional benefits of any hot yoga class: a detoxifying sweat, increased heart rate and metabolism, improved flexibility, increased mental focus, and an overall feeling of wellbeing. Come in and see the difference for yourself.”
