Arden Yoga & Wellness began in 2012 as Middle Tennessee’s only yoga-therapy studio. Owner, Kira Whitaker, had unique credentials as a nurse and certified yoga therapist. However, much as we grow and evolve in our own individual journeys, Arden Yoga & Wellness has too evolved. Over the years, it has flourished to be a multi-faceted space that incorporates all aspects of mind, body, and spirit.
As Kira has journeyed through her Health Coaching program at Vanderbilt University, she has infused the eight pillars of wellness into the core of her studio. These eight pillars are:
Arden Yoga & Wellness’ new touchstone has become an effortless blend of functional movement, therapeutic yoga, and holistic living which we affectionately call ‘The Arden Method.’
The Arden Method meets you at any stage in your journey to inspire your practice and deepen your knowledge.
We believe strongly in a holistic approach to wellness that infuses the philosophies of mindful living with functional movement.
In conjunction with the fusion of these aspects, Arden Yoga & Wellness still remains to be a yoga therapy driven studio. If you’re curious about what Yoga Therapy means, read below.
Thanks to the wonders of social media, Arden Yoga & Wellness has been able to digitally reach and touch people all over the country as we continue to grow. We are so grateful for both familiar and new faces in our community. We are honored to be a part of your journey.
Yoga Therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the teachings and practices of yoga. Yoga therapy adapts the practice of yoga to the needs of people with specific or persistent health problems not usually addressed in a group class.
A yoga therapist is someone trained to use yoga technique to meet his/her client's physical, mental and/or emotional health needs. Yoga therapy is a relatively new field, but it integrates the ancient practice of yoga with an understanding of modern medicine and psychology. Yoga therapists often prescribe specific regimens of postures, breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques to suit individual needs.
