Mountain Yoga Is Now Tahoe Yoga Shala
South Lake Tahoe, California. — South Lake Tahoe’s favorite yoga studio, Mountain Yoga, is now Tahoe Yoga Shala. South Lake Tahoe resident, Laura Josephy, recently purchased the “the Shala” after instructing and managing the business since 2011.
The Sanskrit word shala (sh-ah-la) translates as home or abode. It can also mean the upper branch of a tree. When asked about the symbolism of the business’ new name and logo, Laura shared, “At the Shala we believe that one's ability to expand and blossom is directly proportional to one's ability to gather and root. This philosophy is reflected in our approach to the postures and breath techniques we practice and it is the platform upon which balanced and healthy lifestyle practices are founded and maintained.” This dynamic equilibrium offers endless opportunity for self-discovery and awakening at the level of the body, mind and spirit. It is Laura’s hope that the Shala is held as a reliable home in which students can take their attention inward to engage this process.
Laura has been practicing yoga since 2001, teaching since 2003. She has owned and managed yoga studios since 2005. She is devoted to the yoga tradition and continuously seeks opportunities to study with renowned lineage teachers in order to deepen her personal practice and cultivate new methods to guide and support her students and teachers. Laura believes that in order to become a master teacher, one must first be a masterful student.
The Shala will honor all existing Mountain Yoga memberships. Students enjoy a number of membership options that provide them with the flexibility and access necessary to support their work-life schedule. The Shala offers discounted introductory offers to full-time Tahoe residents. Offering a variety of methods including Ashtanga, Restorative, Prenatal, Family, All-Bodies and Power Flow, the Shala’s 35 weekly classes aim to provide something for everyone.
The Shala, is located in the Tahoe Keys Village at 585 Tahoe Keys Blvd, Suite F1A. An Open House featuring free classes, teacher meet and greet ,live music, acro yoga demonstration and kids chakra art will be held on January 16, 2016 from 12 - 3 p.m.
