Best of the Upstate!

Wow!  We are honored and humbled to have been voted Best Yoga Studio by readers of The Greenville News for the 2015 Best of the Upstate awards! This is the first time Southern Om has won this award, and we can't think of a better way to cap off our 5th Anniversary Celebration Summer!

Thank you to the students, teachers and staff who make this yoga community shine.  Without you, we wouldn't have a community and be recognized for this award.

It is our mission to work every day alongside our students on their path to heath and wellbeing.  To be recognized for this effort is always nice, but it is our passion to teach challenging and inspiring hot yoga classes to the Greenville community and that's what we will continue to focus on.

Thank you Greenville!

Back Care Workshop

Back Care Workshop

*Space Still Available*

Sunday, July 27 from 1-3 pm with Silica & Sarah Oliver

This will be a full-body experience blending directed effort, release, and attention to bring us closer to full, healthy functioning in the spine. The spine is our central point, the basis for everything we do in our bodies, but we can become disconnected to it in one or multiple areas, manifesting as pain/restriction in the spine itself, or in the major joint areas--hips and shoulders.

Join Southern Om teachers Sarah Oliver and Silica Larkin as we explore the 5 principles of re-engagement and awakening of the spine and the relationship of major joints to the spine for maximum suppleness, health, power, and ease.

Equipment needed: yoga mat, towel and water. Cost is $25.  Appropriate for yogis at all levels.

Sign up online or at the Front Desk.
