The Yoga Whole is a Pittsburgh, PA area studio, located in the residential neighborhood of Mount Lebanon. The Yoga Whole was established in 2011 and is a small studio that is seeking to create a big sense of community. As owner of this Pittsburgh, PA studio, I knew that I wanted to create something different for my Mount Lebanon community, something that gave a real sense of belonging to the students and teachers who would find their way through its doors, and not just another place to do or teach yoga. It is the Philosophy of The Yoga Whole that Yoga is not something that you do merely for exercise, it is a lifestyle choice, a choice that becomes a part of the fabric of your life, your family, your community, your world…your Whole existence. I knew this for myself when I made the decision to actually live at the studio, in fact, my kitchen sits midway between lounge area and classroom.
In this comfortable setting we offer approachable classes taught by professionally trained teachers that are guaranteed to help you understand what it means to have and how to work towards regaining use of the strength, flexibility, and fluidity that already exists within your body and mind. Going inward to learn where your body is and what your body can do is what Yoga is all about.
The studio proudly offers non-heated Hatha Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Gentle, Restorative, a variety of child friendly classes, and Improvement Thru Movement (a yoga-dance hybrid), something for the Whole family. Various weekend workshops are offered each month. Private Yoga classes are available.
The Yoga Whole is also home to two talented Massage Therapists with truly gifted hands who offer Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Aromatouch, and Oncology Massage Therapy.
We also offer Prenatal Yoga for expectant mothers and Postnatal Yoga for new moms (infants are always welcome). It is my mission to prepare mothers so that they are physically and mentally ready for what lies ahead. Prenatal Yoga gives a woman a strong foundation, a sense of community, and it provides the tools needed to help ensure a gentle birth.
