Suffolk’s Wellbeing Warehouse studio has been described as ‘a little bit of London’ in the middle of Newmarket. Founder Paula Ahlberg opened the site almost seven years ago and wanted to create a centre of excellence with therapists and instructors who are experts in their field. Having found such a huge space to host therapy rooms and classes, it is also the ideal location for a yoga teacher training school.
Ahlberg’s own experience dates back over 20 years working as a yoga instructor, originally training at Kripalu, Massachusetts, in the United States, with Shiva Rea, David Swenson and Sarah Powers, and frequently attending further training.
“My original plan was to open purely a yoga studio with the option of a small treatment room, where I could offer my massage therapies, as well as find other likeminded complementary therapists for everything to enhance wellbeing,” she tells OM.
So she decided to create more than just a yoga studio. Wellbeing Warehouse now offers everything
from physiotherapy and other complementary therapies, through to many styles of yoga, mindfulness and meditation, as well as barre, ballet, Aerial Yoga and Pilates equipment training.
“Whether you are in rehabilitation through injury, or suffering
from stress, or just wishing to take your fitness and wellbeing to the next level, we are here to help,” she adds.
Wellbeing Warehouse also boasts a welcoming community and has become a popular choice for many embarking on their journey to become a yoga instructor.
The training school is affiliated with Yoga Alliance Professionals and offers 200-hour training, as well as a further 300-hour advanced training . There are additional courses in Yin Yoga with mindfulness, and Aerial Yoga. So whether you wish to become an instructor, deepen your understanding of yoga or be part of a community dedicated to staying healthy, Wellbeing Warehouse has it all under one roof.
