Samadhi = BLISS

In yogic philosophy, Samadhi is the ultimate experience of bliss through enlightenment and connection with the Divine source.

The wonderful union of mind, body, and spirit. When we're moved to seek health and wellness... the beautiful transformation that takes place from the inside out.  Finding peace, relaxation, and ease.

Our Story

We are living our bliss through an offering of yoga and a healthy, holistic lifestyle. Through sweat, tears, and yogi tea, we've been creating a wonderful community around these simple principles for the last eight years, when we began offering private classes for neighborhood friends in Trophy Club, Texas.

We were so fortunate to open our first public yoga studio space in 2011 in Roanoke, TX, and then a second in Flower Mound in 2012.  A cross-country move changed things a little, so our second location grew wings and is now located in the beautiful suburbs of Chicago. Plus, we now also offer the OMazing goodness of yoga live ONLINE!

Through the passage of time and all the exciting new venues we find to share this passion, our goal has always been the same: to create an atmosphere where everyone is welcome, and where we participate not only in yoga together, but in each others' lives.  Join us for downward dog, an evening of spiritual cinema, or a potluck brunch. Wherever you are, we hope you find your place here with us.

Who We Are

Inspiration.  Wisdom.  Compassion.  Personal Connection.  Commitment.  It's who we are, what we believe in, and what we offer to you in your journey.
