Love and Light Shala, Staffordshire's most welcoming holistic wellness centre and yoga studio, was founded in July 2017 by Gabriella Sofia Buxton. We can't wait to welcome you to our urban retreat space in the heart of the Midlands! 


One translation of the word 'yoga' is 'union' and this is the mission of our community; to welcome those passionate about holistic wellness, eco-living and self-development into its growing tribe. 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 which will support you as you step into the power of your own potential. 


With a variety of memberships, packages and prices to suit your practice, the Shala offers a whole host of yoga, Pilates, meditation, fitness, dance, nutrition, life coaching and creativity sessions for all levels from fresh beginner to seasoned yoga-holic! We also offer one-to-one class and therapy options, corporate wellness packages and work within the local community. 


At the Shala, true friendships are formed; we share laughter, we share tears. Your teachers and therapists are  experienced in and qualified to facilitate your growth, your healing, your break-downs and crucially, your break-throughs! So whether you simply need a warm and comfy place to sit and enjoy a herbal tea, a meditation to help ease your anxiety, a class that 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 have got you covered. Our space is open to men and women of all ages, shapes and sizes, and our upcoming community outreach programs mean that money should never be an obstacle in the way of your overall health, happiness and well-being. We look so forward to seeing you on the mat!
