Nurturing Breath, Body, Heart
Co-founded by Tamara Edwards and Michelle Giles, the studio was originally intended to provide a personal practice and teaching space for the two yoga teachers. However, Michelle and Tamara quickly realized the need within the community for a studio space serving independent therapists, teachers, and practitioners who may not otherwise find a place to offer their unique classes and services.
"The soft space that exists in every moment. You can choose to approach your practice, whether it be yoga or life, with gentleness and ease."
Sukha is a Sanskrit word. In its original meaning, Sukha referred to the sense of smoothness, ease and comfort one experience’s when being driven in a vehicle (originally, chariot) whose wheels are well-balanced. Expanding on this, Tamara and Michelle interpret Sukha as "the soft space that exists in every moment. You can choose to approach your practice, whether it be yoga or life, with gentleness and ease."
The studio is envisioned as the hub of a wheel, connecting all the spokes--the various practitioners and their clients remain independent, and yet connected. Both Michelle and Tamara hope that Sukha supports nurturing of the body, breath and heart through its very presence, as well as through whatever is offered within its walls
