Aditi is a special place, and for me personally, a sacred space.
As I walked into Aditi’s new location in the Wallingford Center today I recalled my memories of Aditi when I first moved here years ago. I was always intrigued by the beautiful Aditi Yoga sign on an otherwise drab building on Stone Way, but it wasn’t until I became pregnant with my daughter that I found a reason to go inside and check out a prenatal yoga class. What I discovered was a vibrant community space where I would meet friends and gain the support and education that truly empowered and prepared me for childbirth.
Founder Julie Morse opened Aditi nearly 8 years ago, realizing a long-term dream to provide an inclusive, approachable neighborhood yoga and wellness community. The emphasis on supporting moms during their prenatal and postpartum journey was inspired by her own experience benefiting from yoga during her pregnancies. But Aditi has always been a space for everyone, offering an impressive amount of programming from gentle to more intense yoga classes, workshops, trainings and massage services.
Today, Aditi serves the entire family! Having always provided options for adults and babies, Aditi now offers tots, kids and teen yoga, a monthly Parents Night Out, barre and strength and conditioning classes for teens and adults. This should be particularly handy with the reopening of Lincoln HS right around the corner.
When I learned about Aditi’s move from Stone Way to the Wallingford Center, I was delighted to see such a wonderful community enlivening this space in the heart of Wallingford. The first thing that struck me upon entering the space is the abundant light. Being in the space is literally like being wrapped in a hug by the sun. The positive energy here is palpable and it’s a place that you want to keep returning to. Luckily, the abundant programming leaves me with no excuse but to do so.
Currently offered are Pre/Postnatal yoga classes, Baby & Me, Crawlers, Family (parents with kids 2 – 6 years old), Gentle, Hatha, Slow Flow, Restorative, Vinyasa Flow, Yoga Bliss, Barre, and Strength & Conditioning.
