Our mission is to create a home for others to heal through pursuing their own unique passions and joys in life.

Okra – that weird and beautiful underdog of the vegetable kingdom, that odd and gummy and delicious staple of southern cuisine that has, in its time, become a symbol of home for so many across the world, especially for Southerners. We envision this space and all of the components of Okra as a refreshing change from your standard fare of yoga and wellness centers, one that is uniquely representative of and involved with the community that supports it.

Okra is comprised of three distinct parts: yoga and wellness classes, massage therapy and private healing sessions, and a tea and coffee lounge. We believe that healing is created at every level and is tailored to each individual, so as we offer services, we must offer a variety to help heal your body and your mind.

Just as well, we want to create a space for each and every person to feel welcome and at home – no matter where you’re from or how good your downward dog is. We want to be a place for the impossible and unlikely to come alive through celebrating the pursuit of our unique, individual passions and creativity. Okra, we believe, is a perfect embodiment of the kind of uncommon beauty that is only found in the simplicity of your own home.
