Learn about a local yoga and meditation studio with two area locations that specializes in transforming beginners into expert yogis.
Do you want to learn about a place to do yoga in the Cincinnati area? “Elemental OM is a yoga and meditation studio with two locations serving Greater Cincinnati,” Pamela Quinn, Founder of Elemental OM, says.
“We specialize in making yoga and meditation accessible to those who have never tried yoga or feel they are inflexible or suffering from physical or emotional situations.” Elemental OM has been in business for 11 years with locations at 9510 Montgomery Road, Montgomery, Ohio 45242 and 11928 Montgomery Road, Symmes, Ohio 45249, with one employee and 55 independent contractors.
Elemental OM started from a personal injury that Quinn dealt with. “I personally suffered a debilitating back injury and turned to meditation to manage my pain,” she says. Quinn learned how to meditate and learned about yoga and Ayurveda. “I healed physically in a short period of time and became passionate about sharing the teachings with others,” she says.
The name of the business comes from “Elements,” which is based on the five-element theory of Ayurveda. This is a mental-based yoga on the tantric nature of yoga. Then there is Om, “the sacred vibration that created the universe,” Quinn says.
The business offers yoga classes for beginners and those who are more advanced; corporate wellness solutions; massage, Reiki and healing touch; and has certification as a yoga teacher and Holistic Health Educator.
Elemental Om wants to create a safe environment for her clients. The business is about “creating an atmosphere where someone who has never done yoga or who feels it just isn’t for them and falls in love with yoga,” she says.
The yoga studio is an addition to the Cincinnati area where people can relax. The place “offers a place where folks can come in, kick off their shoes, get a hug and relax,” Quinn explains. “Mothers come to exercise, but learn to be more patient with their children. School teachers who come to de-stress and take the teachings back to their pupils. Business people come to relax and learn to connect more intimately into meaningful work and purpose.”
Quinn says other folks come suffering from the emotional pain isolation, loneliness, anxiety, depression and grief and learn the tools to manage and heal.
“Most people come in for exercise, but leave with so much more,” she adds, saying that she loves coming back to work everyday. “Our team and our students are incredible. They light up my every day and make me feel so purposefully,” she says. “I am incredibly lucky to be surrounded by such talent and love.”
