Etiquette

Yoga can be defined in many different ways. The literal meaning of the Sanskrit word Yoga is: “to join,” “to unite,” “to add,” “to attach.” All of these phrases speak to the type of environment we provide at Whole Life Wellness Studio. By joining yoga and therapy, we offer a space where one can unite body, mind, and spirit. With this, you add to your life by attaching yourself to wellness in a holistic manner.

In essence, we wish to cultivate a sense of mindfulness in both our physical and mental states. With this, we humbly ask that you honor the principles set forth below so that we all contribute to the Whole Life Wellness Studio community both consciously and compassionately.
