Tweet me!

Ojas Yoga Center in El Cerrito is the newest place to do the Downward Dog.
They are opening Sunday, Oct. 24, in El Cerrito Plaza and to celebrate are offering free yoga classes and chair massage, raffle prizes, and one-day discounts on class packages.

Ojas offers a full schedule of yoga classes from gentle to active, and features a one-of-a-kind, 100 percent organic aromatherapy bar where guests can sample and buy essential oils and handmade remedies.
“For years I’ve been hoping that someone would open a traditional studio in El Cerrito, devoted exclusively to Yoga,” said Jazz Poitier, yoga teacher and the former owner of Yoga Source in Berkeley.

Ojas is a woman-owned, green business, featuring bamboo floors, non-toxic paint, non-toxic yoga gear, abundant bicycle parking, and close proximity to major BART and bus lines. The word Ojas (pronounced Oh-jus) means “vitality”, and is the essence of health that provides the foundation for a calm mind and resilient body.

“Not everyone is into yoga, but many people are interested in taking better care of themselves and learning natural ways to reduce stress and stay healthy,” said Nicole Becker, owner of Ojas Yoga Center, who received her teaching credentials in Anusara Yoga in 2004 and has a background in Kundalini and Iyengar Yoga, as well as an education in anatomy, physiology, and therapeutics.

"At Ojas we offer meditation, holistic health classes on topics like insomnia and nutrition, and by January we will be offering massage therapy, Ayurvedic healing, and holistic skincare,'' she said.

Ojas is located in Suite 701 in El Cerrito Plaza at San Pablo and Fairmont avenues. For more information, go to www.ojasyogacenter.com or call 510-525-1369.--KB
