About House of AUM:

House of AUM in Yellow Springs, Ohio was established in June of 2015 after transitioning from a yoga retreat business to a brick and mortar yoga studio and retail shop.

 

We offer modern spiritual experiences that are rooted in ancient teachings including yoga asana and philosophy, nature spirituality focusing on the seasons, moon, and sun, shamanic teachings, astrology, tarot, oracle, and energy work.

 

We believe spiritual practices today offer a limitless opportunity to explore one’s physical body, mind, heart, and soul. There’s an abundance of wisdom surrounding our connection to that in which we cannot see but know and feel. We’re into exploring that, individually and collectively.

 

We believe in sacred spaces and desire to provide containers of support for you to explore the deepest parts of yourself. We take great pride in curating a comfortable, clean, and safe environment for your journey inward.  

 

Each guide at House of AUM is a student first and foremost. We’re always learning, growing, shifting, and transforming. We learn from each other and from the students that join us. We don’t believe spirituality is a concept that you can master; rather, it provides a lens for dissecting and connecting parts of ourselves that may have been forgotten or even lost. We don’t have it all figured out. Our humanness calls for vulnerability, humility, playfulness, and forgiveness over and over again. We invite everyone to join us in this exploration. You are welcome here.
