Our Studio... 

It began with a want for more. I looked around at my surroundings and asked myself, "How do we view Yoga as a society? How has Yoga transformed my life and how can I share with others what has truly captivated so many..." What lies on the surface of a Yoga practice is similar to looking out at the most enchanting landscape, but never stepping outside to explore. There is a want for more, and this Studio space provides just that. 

There is more to life than our work and home life, there is personal time that is sacred and soulfulness that grounds us and these qualities of life are the ones that we tend to loose touch with. There is more to Yoga than just the physical practice.  Yes, a strong and functional body is what supports and heals and strengthens us, but there is transformation that empowers us as the internal fire catches light. 


  There is more to teaching than just robotic auditory instruction, there is heart-felt connection and energetic exchange between teacher and student that is supportive and kind and uplifting. There is a space that provides more than what students anticipate recieving because they may already feel so full and whole, but as Wellness Leaders we enjoy guiding our students and exposing their curiosities to the zest and simplicities of life. 

 The Healing Habitat is a boutique Yoga and Wellness studio who believes in providing more. Welcome to wellness, welcome to The Healing Habitat.

It is an amazing thing about being human that we can feel something inside and then build it in the world. It seems we have this in born need to love and to create. Don’t we help birth another the instant we encourage them to see with their heart? Don’t we help birth the world each time we give someone confidence to build what they see with their heart?

Beth Martin Fall Ayurveda 3.jpg

Fall Ayurveda Series November 10th @ 3:30 - 5:30pm

Ayurveda translates to “the science of life/longevity”.

It is an ancient, intuitive wellness system that teaches us to pay attention to the connection that we have with the world around us.
As the long hot days of summer shift into the cooler shorter days of fall, our minds and bodies shift as well. Fall and early winter are described as “vata season”, ruled by the elements of air and ether. Due to the seasonal shifts, our wellness routines require different activities, food and self-care to support balanced health.

After a grounding Yoga and Breath practice, we will move to discussion. Uncover the early warning signs of imbalance that are typical during the fall season. Leave with a few fall recipes and a clear plan to support your health through the busy holiday season.

My Mission Statement
I am an intuitive and knowledgeable yoga teacher and ayurvedic wellness coach who believes that consistent small steps lead to a healthy mind, body and spirit. I challenge individuals and groups to dream big. I empower others on a path of self discovery as a natural approach to feeling their best. I inspire balanced, intuitive wellness.

My Passions
I have had a lifelong love of healthy living and cultural exploration. I have been practicing yoga for almost 20 years, and my mat is where I feel most at home. I believe that a rich life is full of experiences rather than objects. I love to explore the world by backpack, making meaningful personal connections along the way.

Ayurveda (the science of life and longevity) is a process of self discovery. It teaches us to support health and happiness through our connection to nature.

Please bring your yoga mat and a pen/journal for note taking.

Cost: $25-35
* Members & Early Bird Discounts until November 1st
