Achieving Total Body Wellness-Naturally!
I first read about “Mama’s Wellness Joint” on the Free People blog and was instantly intrigued by the studios theory on holistic living. Opened by Paige Chapman in 2012, this Philadelphia based yoga and wellness studio has a little bit to offer everybody. While I can’t speak about the studio from first hand experience, I really enjoyed Chapman’s philosophy about healthy living- she has designed a space in which a variety of aspects come together to help visitors achieve overall wellness (especially for pregnant and new moms). Chapman incorporates, Pilates, yoga, reiki, massage, healing herbs and ancient birthing rituals to help women (and men!) live more fully balanced and enriched lives. This is something that we all can learn from in our everyday lives- so often we turn to quick fixes like unnecessary medications or crash diets to help bring better “health” to our bodies instead of practicing methods that have worked for centuries and have benefits far greater than a miracle pill. Little things each day like meditation, a quick practice of yoga, self massage or even a simple cup of herbal tea can benefit your mind in body in ways you never thought possible.
