A word from our Founder, LISA COLLINS
IG @BASULISAC

Several years ago, I faced a life-changing moment when a severe panic and anxiety attack landed me in the back of an ambulance, on my way to the hospital. That morning, I woke up unable to breathe, trembling, and in tears, bewildered by what was happening to me. The paramedics arrived, took my vitals, and recognized the elevated heart rate and blood pressure.

One particular paramedic stood out. He asked questions, and in my state of panic, I rambled and cried uncontrollably. He inquired about meditation and yoga, to which I responded that I loved them both. He calmly guided me through deep breathing and meditation during that ambulance ride.

Upon reaching the hospital, he diagnosed me with severe anxiety and I had experienced a panic attack. His words stayed with me: “Return to the yoga mat. Take time each day to meditate and release stress.” I was overwhelmed, stressed, and felt trapped in a job I detested, yearning to discover my purpose and live it.

That paramedic became a pivotal part of my journey. I’m immensely grateful for his presence, as he helped me confront stress head-on. I heeded his advice, returned to my yoga practice, and refused to let stress control my life.

 

My journey with yoga continued, leading me to complete various certifications and open two yoga studios. Yoga taught me to do the inner work, to walk with purpose, and to live on purpose. I cherish the daily practice on the mat and the blessing of having To Each is Om, a safe space for our community to join me in their unique journeys.

I invite you all to come out and experience the transformative power of yoga, meditation, and holistic well-being. Let’s walk this path together, as we celebrate our individuality and find unity in our practice.

With gratitude and purpose,

Lisa Collins

OUR MISSION 

At To Each is Om Yoga and Wellness, we believe in the transformative power of holistic well-being, embracing the ancient wisdom of Kemetic (African) yoga and a spectrum of holistic wellness practices.

Our mission is deeply rooted in the ethos of inclusivity, offering a sanctuary where every individual, irrespective of sexual orientation, religious beliefs, body size, age, gender, or physical abilities, can find solace, strength, and healing.

We are not a wellness center; we are a vibrant community dedicated to igniting the ‘Om’ within each person. ‘Om’, a universal sound symbolizing peace and unity, is at the heart of our philosophy. Our goal is to kindle this inner harmony, fostering an environment where personal growth and community wellness are inextricably linked.

Our commitment extends beyond the individual to the global community. We strive to make a significant impact worldwide by honoring our ancestors and integrating the profound teachings of Ancient Egyptian yoga from Kemet. This ancestral wisdom, combined with contemporary holistic practices, creates a unique and powerful experience for all who walk through our doors.

To Each is Om is more than a place; it’s a movement. A movement towards universal wellness, a journey of self-discovery, and a celebration of diversity and unity. We are here to guide you on your path, help you uncover your inner strength, and join you in a collective journey towards a healthier, more harmonious world.

Join us, and lets together embrace a journey of healing, empowerment, and transformation.

Together, We Can Make an Impact!

We firmly believe that by coming together, we can create lasting change. Our purpose is to bring awareness, inspire action, and liberate healing in mind, body, and soul, not just within our local community but across the globe.

Building an Inclusive Community

 

Our ultimate goal is to take action and build a nurturing community where individuals who look like us—women and men—can find a sanctuary for healing, addressing anxiety, prioritizing mental health, and embracing practices like yoga and meditation. We recognize the importance of vaginal health and womb wellness beyond traditional gynecological care.

Our Core Values!

 Our foundation rests on five core values that define and guide every aspect of our practice and community engagement:

  • Inclusivity: At the heart of To Each is Om is a deep commitment to inclusivity. We believe in creating a space that welcomes everyone, regardless of sexual orientation, religious affiliation, body size, age, gender, ability, or disability. Our approach is to embrace and celebrate the diversity of all individuals, ensuring that everyone feels valued, respected, and empowered to be their authentic selves.
  • Holistic Wellness: We are dedicated to holistic wellness, acknowledging that true well-being encompasses the mind, body, and spirit. Our practices, which include the ancient teachings of Kemetic yoga and a range of holistic wellness techniques, are designed to nurture every facet of an individual’s being, promoting overall health, balance, and vitality.
  • Ancestral Wisdom: Our reverence for ancestral wisdom is a cornerstone of our philosophy. We honor the profound legacy of Ancient Egyptian yoga from Kemet and other ancestral teachings. This respect for the past informs our present practices, allowing us to connect with and continue the rich heritage of spiritual and physical wellness.
  • Community Empowerment: To Each is Om is more than a wellness center; it’s a community. We believe in the power of community to inspire, support, and uplift. Our goal is to foster a sense of belonging and mutual support, where every member of our community can grow, share, and thrive together, creating a ripple effect of wellness that extends into the wider world.
  • Transformation and Growth: We are committed to being a catalyst for positive change. Personal transformation and growth are at the core of our mission. We strive to provide an environment that nurtures self-discovery, encourages personal development, and supports the journey towards a more harmonious and fulfilling life.

These values are the pillars upon which To Each is Om Yoga and Wellness stands. They guide our actions, our teachings, and our interactions, ensuring that we remain true to our mission of providing a safe, nurturing, and empowering space for all. Join us in this mission, and together, let’s embark on a transformative journey towards wellness, unity, and peace.
