Yogi of the Month – Meet Will!

Posted by with No Comments

I have dabbled in yoga, mostly at home. With growing physical tightness and the stress from years of business ownership it became clear that I needed more than weight lifting or an occasional vacation. I also wanted to add some regular meditation practice but being a physical/busy type I found sitting still challenging if not annoying.The first time I walked into the cafe at Nourishing Storm, I sensed an obvious feeling of community and then taking classes at all levels, whether I spoke to anyone or not, there was a feeling of non competitive and supportive camaraderie. After practicing for months, I feel stretched physically and mentally and I find myself craving a class and especially the stillness of meditation afterwards. I love being part of this community!  – Will

Yogi (Staff) of the Month

Posted by with No Comments

How did you find yoga?

I found yoga in the midst of dealing with a lot of divorce drama between my parents. Being a support system for both of them, I felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders. My time spent on my mat and in class lessened that weight little by little.

How long have you practiced?

About 4 years

How long have you worked for NS?

I started working in the cafe as an ambassador in June 2017 and quickly dove into my teacher training the following September. I’ve stuck around ever since, and you’ll often see me behind the cafe or teaching classes!

Yogi of the Month: Tara Buchakjian

Posted by with No Comments

How long have you been practicing yoga?
Approximately 12 years

How did yoga find you?
I was introduced to yoga through a fitness training called Powercentering which was a combination of yoga, pilates, and Tai Chi.  I got certified in it and began teaching it at the chiropractic office where I was working at the time.  I really loved it!  I was pregnant and felt like I was in the best shape of my life and this was my primary form of exercise.  A few years later I started doing yoga at a small studio and loved the personal attention.  I had 2 more kids and continued doing yoga but at a gym because of the need for childcare.  I’d been wanting to get back to a small yoga studio and finally took the leap to become a member at nourishing storm.

What is your favorite yoga pose?
I love variation of crow and handstands

What would you say to a student thinking about starting yoga?
Yoga is a wonderful way to nourish the body and mind and the atmosphere of Nourishing Storm is very positive and caring.  I think yoga is of benefit to everyone and can be modified for any fitness level.  I encourage everyone to do yoga!

Ommm Healing Journey: Grace & Service – Faith & Practice

Posted by with No Comments

Sometimes grace comes unbidden. Silently slipping through the cracks of our brokenness. When we lost something for good. When we have no choice but to allow grief its way with us. She holds us then. Until we can hold ourselves again. I suppose at these times she feels like sanctuary.  (more…)
