Come as you are and open your heart… Whether you are new to yoga, or have been at it for years, you’ll find the support you need to awaken your practice, or recover from your injury with expert care. Kula is the Sanskrit word for community, and that is exactly what you’ll find here at Evolution.
Evolution started as a desire of Dr. Janet Carscadden to create a space where yoga would be accessible to everyone in the community, and that people would experience the benefits of therapeutic yoga. She envisioned a paradigm shift in healthcare, where the whole person would be treated in an environment that felt welcoming, relaxing, and restorative. She wanted to de-medicalize western healthcare, to truly shift to patient centered treatment. Janet met Susan Cline Lucey in 2004 and was amazed at her skill at teaching yoga, and creating a yoga community. It was evident that they needed to align their passions. Susan came on as Yoga Studio Director, and through a year of planning, Evolution PT and Yoga was born in 2006.
Evolution grew from a staff of seven, offering seventeen classes a week, with Janet as the sole physical therapist, to a staff of over thirty people, five physical therapists and 50+ classes a week. The physical therapy practice added women’s heath, and pelvic floor therapy to their programs in 2010. Evolution grew so much that in 2015, Evolution Prenatal Yoga and Family Center was created, and Susan became the sole owner of her own business, that now shares space with Evolution PT and Yoga. In 2015 Evolution realized it’s dream of being at the forefront of therapeutic yoga education, and started to offer training programs to healthcare professionals, to integrate the eastern practice of yoga, into the western practice of medicine. Evolution also build two yoga walls in one of our studios, and added yoga walls to our physical therapy rooms, in order to integrate therapeutic yoga into our treatment programs and classes. We invite you to visit the studio and our physical therapy practice to experience a different kind of healthcare, and a welcoming yoga community.
Come have tea with us and begin the journey of evolution.
