~You Are Missed ~
Dear Be Well & Local Grocer Community,
What a crazy year this has been! The yoga studio remains closed, as we continue to monitor the health and safety of our community. However, we do miss you all and eagerly await the day where we can return to some normalcy. In the meantime, we wanted to provide you with some fun and nourishing reading material. We hope that you’re able to enjoy the beautiful fall weather, strengthen your practice, and find ways to continue to promote wellness in your own lives. While the studio is closed, our store does remain open with a full selection of yoga props, supplements to carry you through the fall/winter season, organic groceries, and take-out from the cafe. Please do stop in to say hello if you find yourself in the area. We appreciate your support of small businesses.

Yoga & Stress Relief

  • Stress reduction. A number of studies have shown that yoga may help reduce stress and anxiety. It can also enhance your mood and overall sense of well-being.
  • Improved fitness. Practicing yoga may lead to improved balance, flexibility, range of motion and strength.
  • Management of chronic conditions. Yoga can help reduce risk factors for chronic diseases, such as heart disease and high blood pressure. Yoga might also help alleviate chronic conditions, such as depression, pain, anxiety, and insomnia.

A little bit about Sam:

Every day I practice yoga, I simply feel better. dream of bringing yoga into the lives of everyone so that everyone can simply feel better – both in mind and body. I believe that yoga can fit into any moment in life and is excited and humbled to be able to share my passion with others. 

My mom took me to my first yoga class when I was a freshman in high school and I have grown so much over the past 15 years because of my practice. began my journey to become a yoga teacher in the winter of 2018 at Heartwood Retreat Center in Bradenton, Florida. The program had a wonderful blend of the many types of yoga methods, yoga philosophy, anatomy, and culture and I was surrounded by a wonderful group of mentors. I am certified RYT 200, Aerial yoga and Reiki Level One and am expanding my experiences and education in yin, meditation, herbal wellness and essential oils.

I developed my dynamic hatha yoga class to create a beautiful blend of many styles of yoga to increase flexibility and core strength. Each class will be centered around a fun and educational theme and challenge both beginners and regulars. I am excited to share this class with you all and hope you are able to join me!

I love to adventure and use the physical and mental aspects I have learned in yoga to build my strength for all my adventures. My favorite activities include skiing the backcountry, climbing the local crag, biking natural trails, paddling every river, and researching a small, endangered butterfly that lives in the alpine zone of the White Mountains. A passion of mine is to blend my adventurous spirit with taking care of myself – from yoga to meditation to my homemade skin care products.
