Absolutely love this place. The staff and atmosphere is amazing. The Salt Cave is amazing and helps on those days I have migraines or sinus issues. Plus Caroline is AMAZING! I suffer with migraines and her massages are so helpful. She’s truly sent to me from God. Due to my work plus just a tense person, she works hard every 2 weeks to get my neck and shoulders loosened up!
She has to be the best masseuse I’ve ever known and had the pleasure to work on me!
Shailaja has been a student of yoga for much of her life - she
started in her early teens in India. After a short break during her
college years, she came back to a regular practice in her mid 20s
here in the US. Her classes help the students connect with their
body, mind and breath as she guides the asana practice in an
informative, informal, friendly way with a focus on stretching,
balancing and strengthening throughout. This leaves the student
energized yet calm. Shailaja’s strength as a teacher is the ability
to guide each student individually, to find comfort in each pose
practiced, irrespective of their level or years of practice.
Pranayama (breath work) and sound ( chanting ) are an integral part
of her classes. Her passion is to teach meditation – the silence of
the meditative state, she believes, leads to an inner listening
which forms a bond between the heart and the mind – a way to find
the beauty within each soul.
One of her early teachers saw her potential and encouraged her
to start teaching in the year 2000. In the 18 years that she has
been teaching, she has trained with various teachers in the US (
Gary Kraftsow, Leslie Kaminoff, Lillah Schwartz and Marlysa
Sullivan are among the few ) and in India ( T. K. V. Desikachar and
Dr. N. Chandrasekharan) She holds an E-RYT
500 Yoga Alliance registration. She has more than 1200
hours of training from two different Yoga Therapy training programs
and is C- IAYT (Certified Yoga Therapist by the
International Association of Yoga
