Yoga Studios vs. Everything Else
The reason people reach outside of their gyms/crossfits/bootybarre bootcamp burnalates etc….is that attempts at throwing together a yoga program, is just that…a thrown together program that doesn’t do yoga any justice.
The point is, Yoga studios(good ones), provide a place that is special. The only focus is on Yoga. So, when I receive the calls from people who say, “I want to add yoga to my workout”, I am pleased they found us. For the reasons stated above:
Beginning, April 1st, 2017, we are offering 20% off to ALL MEMBERS of GYMS, CROSSFITS, YMCA’s, Orange Theory, 9 Rounds, Title Boxing, etc. Just bring in your membership card, and we will take 20% off your first membership/package purchase(excluding drop ins and New Student Special).

Do Right Be Light. A year and a half ago, we took ownership of Vital Yoga Center in Matthews, NC. We were met by some students and teachers with welcome arms, others less warmly. I understood that they had a comfort level with what had been, but I had a vision to bring to fruition. There was a time of trying to reach out and make the peace with both students and teachers. There was a need to cleanse the energy of negativity, especially in our yoga studio. For months I worked hard to transform the studio into what I always wanted and dreamed. We brought on new teachers, new students, new programs, and even our first ever 200-hour Teacher Training! Fast forward to April, 2016, I married Mary, my now wife, and almost collapsed as we boarded the plane to Jamaica. I realized happily that we had cleared most of the negative energy from the studio, and received incredible help from our teachers and students.
The studio was growing, and the energy was great! In my vision, I knew I wanted to open another studio. But, where? By fate, through a friend, I found Ayrsley. I jumped on the opportunity to open Vital Yoga Studio, and now here we are, a year and a half later with two happy and healthy communities! It was not always easy, we did what we had to do, but realized that darkness is always tugging at the sleeve. We do our best to be light, bring light to others, and let the darkness die out. It may not be the easiest thing to do, but do not feed the darkness around you – you will only end up with more. Keep your head up, and stay focused. We did. We are here. We thank you all.
Please check out this piece in the Charlotte Agenda! We are so grateful to be a part of the movement happening in Ayrsley! Ultimately, we are thrilled to be in both locations, and will continue to provide the best yoga, competitive pricing, flexible schedule, welcoming environment, and awesome instruction you can find!

Authentically You is what we seek to nourish at Vital Yoga. Yoga is supposed to be a journey of the self, through the self, to the self. I would like to focus on this one statement throughout this blog post.
First, ‘a journey of the self’, would indicate you are the focus of the journey. In order to have a true journey of the self, you must travel ‘alone’. In other words, your mat is your vehicle, and you are the driver(and passenger). To venture your focus elsewhere would indicate that your journey is no longer of the self. If you start looking around the room and get into a state of comparing and competition, or self-defeating mindset, the journey of the self is tainted. Authentically You means turning inside, on your mat, with your breath.
Second, ‘a journey through the self’, indicates there is a ‘way’ to travel. The way would be with our breath and concentration. We cannot travel through the self if we are looking in a mirror. This is why we do not have mirrors in our studios. To journey through the self, we must be present, and let the process of yoga happen. We need to allow our yoga to travel through us. If we do, our breath begins to breathe us. We create space in our bodies and minds by linking our breath with movement. The space we create opens us up for the journey through ourselves, and frees us of stagnant energy that no longer serves us. Through the self, we breathe in new energy, and turn deeper inside.
Third, ‘a journey to the self’ , can only happen if we are of the self, and through the self. Our destination is to the self, leaving us with clearer minds, and feeling lighter. Authentically You is what we seek at Vital Yoga. In order to journey to the self, we must be present, with our breath, and in a place that doesn’t permeate with ego. To return home to the self, we cannot be looking in the mirror, worried about how we look. The journey is interrupted by egoistic thoughts, and ventures outside of ourselves. We cannot journey to the self in an atmosphere that is pretentious. Authentically You at Vital Yoga doesn’t care about what brand of yoga pants you wear. Authentically You at Vital Yoga doesn’t care if you can do a handstand. Authentically You at Vital Yoga doesn’t care about your financial status, marital status, sexual orientation, gender, or race. Authentically You at Vital Yoga loves you for being Authentically You, and loves helping you on your journey to that place. Authentically You at Vital Yoga welcomes you. Journey To The Self.
