Low Flow Restorative
Low Flow Restorative is a super slow, low impact, floor based yoga class that focuses on unlocking any tightness and tension in the neck, shoulders, back, hips and legs while practicing breath awareness, relaxation techniques and meditation. This is a more meditative class that includes long restorative holds, dim lighting, and soft music. Great for stress relief.

Anxiety & Depression
Angie, the owner of OmTurtle, suffered from anxiety for many years in silence before getting the help she needed. Once finding the courage to seek help she found herself driving all over St. Louis piecing together a variety of needs. Once healed she quit her corporate job and decided to bring a collaborative healing center into North County, where she lives, so that more people can have affordable access to better health and wellness.

We are a safe and healing environment using the backdrop of a quiet and calm facility immersed in multidimensional techniques. You are not alone. Let us be on this journey with you.
