About True Self Yoga Olympia

The husband and wife team Vajra Romano and Christina Lagdameo started True Self Yoga. The couple met at a yoga retreat before going their separate ways. Fate reunited them a few years later, and they married in 2012. Vajra and Christina moved to Olympia in 2016 following a family tragedy. 

During this time, they established True Self Yoga with the mission of helping people bring out their highest good. On top of their meditative classes, they partner with many organizations committed to doing great within the community. You can visit them at 2727 Westmoor Court Southwest, where they share a space with Soul Café.

True Self Yoga provides a variety of classes, including prenatal yoga. These classes use positions and poses to give your body a phenomenal stretch. Throughout this time, you’re building flexibility and strengthening muscles that you’ll need throughout childbirth. The classes establish proper breathing and give you the chance to relax. Plus, prenatal yoga has been found to help you sleep, decrease nausea, and lower your chance of preterm labor. 

The studio provides partner prenatal yoga, where you and your partner can spend an afternoon preparing for labor. During these special sessions, you’ll go over helpful positions for childbirth, and your partner will learn how to be the best support person for you.

One of the best things about True Self Yoga is that they let you get your baby involved after birth! The studio offers postnatal classes and welcomes your baby along for the journey! During these classes, you’ll go over poses that will aid your body in recovery and let you get back into the practice. They also provide a more laid-back family class to stimulate your baby’s growing curiosity. You’ll go through playful poses, work with your partner, and snuggle your little one! 

The studio believes that no one is too young for yoga. As your baby gets a little bigger, check out their exciting kids’ yoga classes that engage your child with fun poses, music, and stories.
