Hello! My name is Jessica Bowles. After 20yrs of practice and 14yrs of teaching yoga, I thought I was ready to hang up my teaching hat. As my personal practice had continued to deepen throughout the years into all which the practice of yoga encompasses, all I saw around me was a lot of strictly Asana (posture) practice. I knew that there was so much more, yet felt unable to share in my current environment. I wanted to share all facets of yoga practice, especially meditation which at its core IS what yoga truly embodies. But, first I needed to create a space for it. I decided to open up a small center to offer classes that shared the broaden view of the practices and teachings of Yoga, expanding on what was currently available in my area. It would be a place for all and be simply called The Meditation Room…. a community center, a central point where the community could gather, learn, practice, and grow.
The community response was amazing! Our signature classes were bursting at the seams and we were continuously receiving messages on when we were expanding into different areas or where they could find classes like this near them. That is when realized that we could create an online community...growing a community without walls and expanding our reach. We created e-courses of our signature classes, expanded on our local classes, trainings, and retreats, as well as offering an online shop to create your own personal meditation space.
We continue with our beginning purpose to share these healing practices, to grow and to expand our community, and creating tangible teachings to easily infuse into your life. We hope to help you on your journey to health, joy, balance, clarity, and wellbeing.
