Making yoga accessible to all

At OIC, we strive to make yoga accessible to everyone. We keep our class sizes small so we can offer the best instruction and the safest environment. Our mission is to honor and share the ancient traditions of the practice. Our program is unique to the Omaha area, teaching yoga within our integrative environment gives us the ability to offer several healing modalities under one roof. If you are seeking a traditional practice in a calm, healing, and integrative environment, this is the place for you.

We require masks in our building.  You can remove your mask while on your yoga mat. 

Please email our Wellness Director Stephanie Watson with any questions!

Special Events & Series Offerings

Fertility Yoga Series

This six-week session is designed to meet the needs of women who are trying to conceive. Class is designed around an all-encompassing nourishment wheel that focuses on health for the body, mind, and spirit. This unique session teaches postures and breathing techniques that calm the body, nourish the reproductive organs, and release anxiety and stress. Each class delves into the deeper yogic teachings of meditation, visualization, and the power of our thoughts and attitudes. As we relax and let go of physical and emotional toxins, we begin to have a clearer sense of self and insight into our fertility journey. Class sizes are kept small to facilitate a sharing and supportive community. Class is taught by Emily Goodwin and Stephanie Watson.

Slow Flow Yoga

This class, taught by Carole Westerman, is designed to help create balance in your body, mind, and nervous system. Our Slow Flow format is a blend of styles, so you get a little bit of what you want, and a little bit of what you didn’t even know you needed. We typically start off slow and close to the ground with Yin-style poses that will imprint the shape of our focus area or pose. From there, we begin to move and add in a bit of Flow with plenty of options given for all levels. We end the class with a few counterposes, and/or Restorative poses, and from there we drift into a sweet Savasana in order to integrate after our practice.

Who is this class for? Anyone who likes trying different yoga postures while challenging themselves with new techniques.
