About the Director

Om Shala Yoga is lovingly owned and directed by a local yoga teacher, Peggy Profant– who feels that it is more about stewardship than ownership. Since 2008, Om Shala has been a haven in our community and has evolved to have a life of it’s own. The intention of the stewardship is to build a beautiful, warm, and inviting space where students are welcome to come practice yoga, meet each other, and build community.

The name was chosen as a reflection of the studio goals: “Om” is considered to be the universal sound, harmonizing and including everything that exists, and “Shala” translates to “school” or “home,” with all the connotations of the places you love the most.

The Om Shala teachers and staff approach everything we do with the concept of community-building in mind: from the classes we offer, to the comfy seating in the lounge, to what we choose to sell in our Om Shala Yoga Boutique.
