Since 1994, the Breathing Space has been an oasis of health and well-being for hundreds of people in Silverlake, Southern California and beyond. Always in the context of a supportive, student-teacher relationship, we have provided all who have found their way to our sweet, home-based wellness center with educational opportunities, personal guidance, relief from suffering and whatever else they needed to flourish.
Throughout the years, this healing relationship has been highly effective in treating every manner of malady. Whether the issues are physical, psychological, emotional, relational, spiritual, or a combination, our students consistently report feeling more confident, healthy, and hopeful than when they arrived. I am pleased and proud to say that today, years after we first opened our doors, we still have heart-to-heart relationships with many of our earliest students.
Today, the Breathing Space is thriving. We continue to offer an incredible array of services, including Yoga Education and Therapy, Positive Psychology interventions, Yoga Sutras Study, Career, Wellness and Relationship Coaching, Addiction Counseling, Mentorship programs and the full range of all Ayurveda has to offer.
Please peruse the entire site for more details.
So that’s it… so far. If you are looking for a place to heal yourself or learn to heal others, to gain knowledge of a wide variety of transformational tools and practices, to explore the Yoga Sutras and connect with some like-minded folks, look no further. You’re Home.
Just re-discovered some sublime suggestions from the 1855 edition of Walt Whitman's magical 'Leaves of Grass.' Enjoy. "This is what you shall do, Love the earth and sun and animals. Despise riches, give alms to every one that asks. Stand up for the stupid and crazy. Devote your income and labor to others. Hate tyrants. Argue not concerning God. Have patience and indulgence toward the people. Take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men. Go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the mothers of family. Read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life. Re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul... And your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body."
