New Yoga Studio Offers Wellness from the Inside Out

While some of us were starting our new year off with a nap, a new Fisher’s business welcomed 2011 with, literally, a flourish. Flourish Yoga and Wellbeing opened its doors at 10138 Brooks School Road on January 1 with a day of free yoga classes and a promise to be a different kind of yoga studio.
Owner Amy Thomas’s vision for the new venture is to create a safe place for people to explore yoga, health, personal growth, and ultimately, their own infinite possibilities. “The intention is not only to offer yoga classes, but to grow a community of empowered, loving people who can make a huge difference in the world by taking care of their own well-being first, which enables them to be present for others,” Thomas says.
The new space has been transformed from a fitness-centric exercise studio to a peaceful retreat offering yoga classes for every level of interest, plus massages and personal counseling. Flourish Yoga offers a variety of classes seven days a week, all taught by registered yoga teachers handpicked for their commitment to yoga as a holistic practice.
Thomas, a Registered Yoga Teacher since 2003 and also a psychotherapist, adds, “Many people initially come to yoga for the physical benefits of yoga and as they continue, their practice quickly begins to encompass the emotional, psychological, and spiritual aspects of wholeness… allowing them to flourish in life rather than just survive another day. That’s the inspiration for the studio’s name.”
