Sometimes the best antidote to a crazy, busy life is to just breathe. Cross-legged. In yoga pants.
Okay okay, there’s much more to it than that. The 5,000-year-old practice of yoga brings challenge along with the calm, while increasing strength, balance, and flexibility. And at one locally-owned studio, a profound sense of community.
At Breath of Life Studio, just a few minutes away from Reunion a Shea Homes Community, owner Audrey Goodman has created a different kind of yoga studio.
“We’re all about community,” she says. “We’re positive. We encourage and lift up each other.” So from beginner to expert, you can feel supported in a wide range of classes including Classic Flow, Power Flow, Toning Yoga, Pilates Fusion, and more. It’s a friendly environment where many attendees have forged friendships that extend beyond the studio.
Goodman’s belief in community has led to special fundraising workshops, such as one in which 100% of donations went to help a Reunion boy recovering from a stroke. The session was followed by a happy hour, and fun was had by all—including the boy and his family.
“People at Reunion are amazing,” says Goodman. “The community support for people in need is incredible.” Instead of spending money on advertising, Breath of Life helps sponsor almost every event at Reunion, including the annual Kite & Flight Festival. And at July’s Red, White and Bluefest, Goodman will kick off the event with free yoga in the park.
