Enter through the green door and find the key to tap into an inner power that will put you on a path to wellbeing and happiness.
That is the invitation made by Pure Essence Studio in North Battleford. Mandy Lehman, through classes and workshops in yoga and meditation and application of massage therapy techniques, says she strives to help others discover what she has unearthed.
“I believe we are all taken care of and life becomes a heaven on earth once we are open to the connection of the spirit that embodies us.”
The green door that opens up this brave new world to clients is the one on Lehman's Pure Essence Studio, tucked in behind her home on Scott Drive.
Through the green door, one is welcomed with possibilities of relaxing, healing, rejuvenating and stimulating the mind and body with spirit. Pure Essence Yoga Studio is an enclosed, warm room where one can relax and feel at ease by feeling safe to let go into the moment, releasing physical, emotional and mental stress.
Lehman, who began her yoga journey a dozen years ago, has participated in intensive training in various aspects of yogic philosophy, including a semester at the Himalayan Institute in Pennsylvania. There she took part in a transformation program changing her perspective on herself and the life she was living.
“As my yoga practice deepens, I realize who important this connection is to see the beauty and joy in life and live in it.”
Lehman doesn't see any training session as an end point, but rather as a launching point for the next aspect of enlightenment.
She says she is constantly upgrading and is confident her history, experience and training combine to give her the tools she needs to help others find the power within themselves.
I'm trying to bring that power out in every one of us,” she says.
She says her clients need to come to a realization of who they are and what their reactions are to events in their lives before they can tap into that power.
Yoga isn't just about the body, Lehman explains
“Pure Essence Studio is all about your authentic self, the pure essence that lies beneath the chaos of life, connect to the centre within.
“(It) is a place where one can come to feel safe, to heal through balancing the mind body and spirit.”
All that heavy philosophy aside, Lehman also emphasizes her classes and workshops are full of energy and laughter. She says she shares her experiences to help inspire her students to live life to fullest in the moment and remembering to live through the heart with love and compassion.
