The Ekah Yoga community space is built on foundations of clean, green, efficient and conscious design to create a calm and healthy environment for your practice. Our clients have told us that our space has a feeling of intimacy, comfort, and cleanliness. We strive to provide a space that is simple and inviting, in a non-intimidation kind of way.
We value community! We strive to enrich the yoga experience by offering community building projects that give back.
Ekah Yoga was created to honor holistic teachers, their gifts, and to bring them together to offer unique yoga and travel experiences. Ekah, Sanskrit for one, celebrates union. We are all connected at a cellular energetic level, and it is the mission of Ekah Yoga to help individuals find these energetic bonds within themselves and within each other. With regular yoga practice and meditation, your true energies will become more clear. It is my vision, as leader of Ekah Yoga to bring teachers and students together to share yoga in a fair and loving way. I have found need in this community to create a safe place for teachers and students to teach, love, and practice yoga. This space is intended for teachers to feel respected, be encouraged to grow, earn their worth, and are encouraged to participate Ekah Yoga’s evolution. We need to lift each other up, so we can reach higher plains of consciousness together as one. It is my pleasure to work with this group of exceptional teachers and share them with you!
Much gratitude, Crystal Olry Founder, Ekah Yoga
We offer community activites that bring people together and give back. The picture here shows a herb mandala our members worked on April 22, 2017 in celeration of Earth Day.
Ekah offers a wide variety of classes, workshops, and private sessions. We believe in offering traditional, as well as unique, styles of yoga for our diverse, growing community.
Class Reservation: Since we are a small intimate studio, space is limited. Walk-ins are welcome but we highly encourage you to sign up online for classes to reserve a space. Please arrive at least 5 minutes before start time to set up and check in on the Ipad. If you arrive after start time your space may be given to someone on standby. If for any reason you are unable to make it to class please cancel your booked reservation as a courtesy to those on the waitlist.
Waitlist: If you are the first on the wait list and someone cancels their reservation, you will automatically be added to the class list. If your email is on your MindBody profile, you will receive an automatic email notifying you that a spot opened up. If you do not receive an email you are welcome to come to the studio in person to see if a spot opens up (we can’t promise, but typically a couple spots open up).
Ekah Yoga will use MCCSC cancelations as a guideline for cancelations. We care about the safety of our students and our teachers in getting to classes safely. When snow or ice accumulate we have to give our landlord time to clear the walkway and parking lot for your safety.
Did you know we have yoga sessions with some of our instructors, available on our Facebook page? Check it out and practice at home if class gets canceled.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead
A shift is here, it is clear the winds of change are present, and we can resits or we can move forward together.
Ekah, in Sanskrit means ONE. Ekah celebrates union, and has always stood for unity through diversity and thus strives to bolster authenticity. Racism has never been something we have talked about openly at Ekah. It is a word that we assumed was understood as unacceptable. But let’s be honest here, racism, is so deeply rooted in the fabrics of our culture, that a further awakening, and call to action present necessary today, and moving forward.
We have stepped back, we are here, we continue to breathe together. Now it is time for our small group of thoughtful people to stand in solidarity for change. We affirm Black Lives Matter, we affirm Color of Change.
To further propel change in our community and beyond, we are taking actions to bring visibility to our change, and are taking measures to provide room for donation classes that support social equality reform.
We also pay tribute to those lives lost in this ongoing war of racism, repression, and marginalization. We pay homage to George Floyd family. And it is our hope that his precious life will not be lost in vain. He and so many others before him have faced murder because of their color. We at Ekah Yoga affirm Black Lives Matter—and support change through actively rethinking race, opening up to possibility, saying yes to change, gaining truth through knowledge, being present in this moment, continuing to persist, and rejecting violence.
We will be working towards the inclusion of fundamental & foundational pillars into the framework of our existence.
If you are interested in helping us actively support change you can do the following:
1. Stop by our rainbow colored front door, take your photo by it, and share your perspective on one or more of the colors of change on your social media platform, or by emailing us at email@example.com
2. Take a yoga class, any class, and practice peace. Today, you can spread the peace by inviting a friend to text (812)-320-4525 and get set up with a first free class.
3. Read, listen, educate, actively participate with organizations that align with your intentions.

From the Unitarian Universalist Church: “ Support the work of Black-led community organizations in our local community or use this link to look at several groups Reclaim the Block, a black-led organization in Minneapolis, has invited us to support.” Also consider shopping at Black-owned businesses, especially local.
Be the change you wish to see in the world today,
Love your friends at Ekah!
