A Place to Breathe was specifically created to help people feel comfortable, safe and supported when learning stress reduction techniques such as meditation and yoga. We know it takes courage to try something new and we honor that journey. We also know there are many paths – we hope each student can find a practice that connects them to their best self. The owners of AP2B began their individual paths to meditation and yoga through their personal struggles and losses due to illness – the practice was life changing. We love sharing what we have learned. Johannah and Sohan Raj (Crystal) owned A Place to Breathe Meditation and Yoga Studio in Charlottesville, Virginia for 9 years. Feeling the desire for expansion they closed the Charlottesville studio and broadened the business. They now teach special events and retreats throughout the year.
