About: Heartfelt Yoga Studio
Heartfelt Yoga Studio is a LGBTQ owned and independently operated Columbus, Ohio Yoga Studio located in Short North Arts District. Studio owner Vinny Purtle’s vision and mission:
“I focus on creating a space for everyone and anyone to explore yoga in a way that feels authentically you. Above all, I along with all Heartfelt Yoga Studio teachers, live and breathe the values of inclusion and diversity.
My vision is to pave the way for all fitness centers and yoga studios to represent all types of people. As a result, I dream of Columbus leading the wellness industry by showing with action that yoga truly is for everybody and every body.
As an openly gay man, and not the ‘ideal’ body type of a fitness instructor, I often feel out of place. Therefore, I am creating a community to welcome any and all with open arms. My hope is to help others connect with their mind, body, and soul. Similarly, I want others to find self love both on and off the mat.
In summary, my promise to you is to hold space for you to explore and play in your yoga practice. You’ll often hear me remind the class that ‘Yoga is so much more than the body’! But don’t just take my word for it, come in and experience the magic for yourself.”
