“Humans have the capacity to live their strengths,” says Mary Clare. “At Lotus House we want just that — for you to become more of your authentic self, not to conform to some perception of perfection. In fact, we are kind of bored with perfect, we love the unique/misfit energy within ourselves and the world.”
Lotus House is a family and female-owned and operated company based in Nebraska. It was born from a passion for the ancient lineage of the practice and a desire to share that with an unfamiliar community. A decade into the business and Lotus House continues to lead with love and the mission to share joy through yoga.
Now, yogis from all over the world can experience the highly educated teachers and spirit-based wellness practices that compose the “Lotus vibe.” The platform was created to mirror the way it feels in the studio, and features short classes to full practices, in addition to sculpt trainings, their official 200-Hour Yoga School and Shakti Prenatal Training. In 2021, the 300-Hour training curriculum will be available.
“Our yoga, cycle, sculpt and Pilates classes have grown to a global renown,” Anne shares. “We have a lighthearted approach to life, we take music seriously, and rely on each other as family. Our core values are keeping the beginners mind, always learning, leading with love and fairness, and having fun along the way.”
While staying at home is a common expectation in today’s society, finding home within oneself and their community is less touched on.
“Everyone will find a home for their yoga practice and if you haven’t yet, don’t give up. Your community is out there for you,” says Mary Clare. “Our community, the students that come to Lotus, are the absolute best. I am truly amazed at the work that they do in the world. Their yoga and movement practice at Lotus makes them more aligned to their truth, which in turn helps them live a passionate life.”
2020 has also revealed where more equity and growth are needed, and the Lotus House has stepped up.
“Collectively, we uncovered the way white supremacy has been woven into wellness and simultaneously we experienced a new level of gratitude for all of the love we have shared. We have big plans for our partnership with that integrates it all. What I know about yoga is that you cannot unlearn what your heart has experienced,” Mary Clare says.
