Owners Name(s): Patty Ferry

When did your studio open? October 2009

Why did you open your studio? I wanted to bring yoga to my community.  There was only one yoga studio nearby and yoga at the gyms and YMCA.  I started my teaching career at the YMCA, I got tired of dealing with the cold aerobic room, I just wanted to be in a space that is inviting, peaceful, and full of joy.

Does your studio have a mission or vision statement?

Our mission is to welcome, inspire and empower each and every person who walks through our doors.  We commit to lead our programs and classes from a place of truth and authenticity, with integrity and joy. We commit to continual expansion and growth and to being of service by contributing to our local community. We commit to empower and inspire people and communities on and off the mat, through physical practice, personal development, and the support of on another student and practitioner alike.  We commit to offering an inspirational experience that carries you off your mat and into your life.

This year we graduated 8 new teachers and 5 were students of mine, 3 started with me in Beginner 101 and these women are all amazing teachers.   We are looking forward to hosting the upcoming Advanced Yoga Teacher Training.  Visit our website:  http://wholebodyyogastudio.com/category/teacher-training/
