Our mission at Vasu Tribe Studio YouTube play

Our mission at VASU is to empower the art of luminous living and deep self-love, through empowering yoga classes, organic spa treatments + products, and soulful events.

We’ve created a sacred space for people to come and connect; to themselves and their community, to their body and their beauty, to their truth and to their light.

We believe….

In MAGIC. The magic that happens when you step into your light and illuminate the unique gifts that lay inside your heart, waiting to be brought into the world.

In SELF-LOVE. It’s the fuel for generosity + compassion, and in order to generously love the world around you, you must first love yourself.

In RITUAL. The grounding + strength that sacred rituals and practices bring to your busy days and dream filled nights.

In YOU. It’s your divine birth right to be luminous + joyful. Make space for yourself and your dreams, and watch the whole word around you change.

Let Vasu be the place for you to come and fill your well, ignite your spirit and open your heart, so that you can Live In Your Light.

 

Holly Wheeler- Co-founder of Vasu Tribe

I’m the Spa Director of Vasu Studio, a Holistic Aesthetician, Massage Therapist and Botanical Beauty Expert. My deep passion for beauty + healing has brought me around the globe; studying herbs + ancient massage in China, botanical skincare in Europe, and plant medicine from various traditions.

I have a love for the mystical world, which has led me to study lunar astrology with The Wild Woman Project, Goddess traditions, and sacred rituals. I combine these wisdoms into our monthly Full Moon Magic circles.

You can find me in the Vasu Studio giving organic massages + facials, and creating healing body rituals; spiritual baths to heal heartbreaks, facial masks to clear complexions, and oils to give you strength and protection.

My medicine and offering to you is using the healing power of earth + plants, the intuitive wisdom of the moon + stars, and my own strength + heart, to  hold space for your healing process and encourage you to savor yourself and life more deeply.

Natalie Wheeler – Co-founder of Vasu Tribe

I’m the Yoga Director + Community Developer of Vasu Studio. I have been practicing yoga for a decade and my love for the practice began with Bikram Yoga, which was my gateway into the yoga world. When I began my career as a travel nurse in California and Puerto Rico, I deeply craved connection, community, and a sense of belonging. Yoga became my home, connecting me to myself , my community, + the world around me.

I received my 200-hour YTT with All Yoga in Bali, Indonesia in 2014. Bali is referred to as “The Morning Of The World” and was a beautiful spiritual backdrop of temples + ritual.

I have  infused my bohemian ways into my life here in Hartford with my free spirit, appreciation of community + passion for discovery (whether that be on a plane to a far-off destination or within the bindings of a spiritual text).

I love the community that is built within the walls of a yoga studio. We all crave connection. I understand that is part of what brings us to our yoga mats. I feel so connected to my students, and feel blessed to be doing what I absolutely love. There is an abundance of lessons within the practice of yoga, and my passion is to empower students to carry those lessons off their mat.

I am also a Nurse Practitioner and Nursing Professor and utilize my advanced knowledge of human anatomy + passion for teaching a diverse student population in my class design. I apply the saying “teach to the class in front of you” when teaching yoga. My style consists of a soulful mix of asana, pranayama, meditation, chanting, and self-reflection.

As one of my favorite authors, Danielle LaPorte says, “It’s not how we practice..it’s why.”
