Ahimsa Welcomes Elmhurst Yoga Shala to the Family!
The 506 Spring Road location will continue to operate as a wonderful yoga studio under the name of Ahimsa Yoga Studio. As of January 15th, 2018 students with any Ahimsa or Elmhurst Yoga Shala package or membership can take classes any of the 5 Ahimsa locations - Elmhurst South (506 Spring Road), Elmhurst North (381 N. York St), La Grange (14 W. Burlington), Berwyn (3120 S. Oak Park Ave.) and Oak Park (441 South).
The Elmhurst South schedule can be found here. Scroll down and take a look inside the studio practice room!
Elmhurst Yoga Shala has been operating as a yoga studio for over 15 years - longer than Ahimsa has been open by almost 2x. Jackie DeGaetano owned the studio for 13 years and did an amazing job creating offers for the Elmhurst community including starting a kids yoga non-profit, a prenatal program, mom & baby classes, and more. Many of their teachers (who will stay on board!) have been teaching yoga for a very long time and have taken training programs in therapeutics.
The studio features a large rope wall. These ropes are used to practice yoga poses in many classes. And stay tuned for workshops that focus solely on the wall.
Elmhurst Yoga Shala has played a huge part in prenatal yoga, mom and baby, toddler, kids, teen and family yoga! We are doing our best to add in all of those specialties. Currently there is a prenatal class, toddler yoga is coming in February, and there is teen yoga every week. Be sure to also check out the Beginners Series.
We look forward to continuing to benefit yoga students, yoga teachers, and the communities of the Chicago Western Suburbs.
