WELCOME TO THE SHALA
Love and Light Shala, Staffordshire's most welcoming holistic wellness centre and yoga studio, was founded in July 2017 by Gabriella Sofia Buxton.
Much like the world around us, Love and Light Shala has experienced an evolution since then, and is now proud to serve the global wellness community both in-person (where possible) and online.
But we do things a little differently... At Love and Light Shala, we are not spamming a collection of Zoom replays to clog up your email inbox and become just another thing to-do on your list.
We passionately believe that Community is the key to all wellness, development, and empowerment: in fact, we always have! One translation of the word 'yoga' is 'union', so our programs have been carefully designed in order to welcome you (and anyone else who is passionate about holistic wellness, personal empowerment and self-development) into our growing family. Once you are 'here' (whether that is online, or in-person) we are doing all that we can to hold safe space, build progress plans, and keep you accountable to your goals, with the magical power of togetherness (in spite of the world's current 'apart-ness'!)
As you can see, our Community is the most important thing to us, and we are fiercely protective of our intention to offer a nourishing, nurturing and safe space to all.
We do this via a variety of hands-on packages to suit your practice. Whether you are into yoga, Pilates, meditation, nutrition, holistic healing or conscious living we have the ideal set-up for you. And it goes without saying, we have options for all levels from fresh beginner to seasoned wellness warrior!
We also offer Corporate Wellness Packages, our Conscious Kids Curriculum for schools, and room hire of our beautiful studio in Trentham, Stoke-on-Trent.
At the Shala (both online and off!), true friendships are formed; we share laughter, we share tears. Your teachers and therapists are experienced in and qualified to facilitate you as you get to know the person you are becoming. So whether you simply need a warm and comfy place to sit and enjoy a herbal tea, a short audio meditation to help ease your anxiety, a video masterclass which will kick-start your weight-loss, a book to borrow filled with delicious-looking recipes or someone to give you a pep talk into applying for the job of your dreams or letting go of a toxic relationship, we can't wait to get to know you.
