Pawling Yoga & Wellness, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on making wellness classes and services more accessible, is preparing to launch in the village of Pawling in 2021.

“Our mission is to promote health and holistic wellness in Pawling and surrounding communities by creating a safe, supportive environment to provide inclusive programming for wellness-based education, yoga and other therapeutic modalities, and community-building practices,” says founder Gabrielle Semel. “We welcome all individuals and provide these services and classes regardless of individual financial circumstances.”

For the past 12 years, Semel has led private and group yoga classes as co-founder of Inner Balance Studio, in Patterson. She says Pawling Yoga & Wellness will offer weekly classes, wellness services and ongoing workshops. As a nonprofit funded by contributions and grants, it will offer many of its programs, such as yoga, meditation and qigong classes, on a pay-what-you-can basis.

It will also host pay-what-you-can monthly workshops and lectures on how and why to make healthier choices, and monthly Community Clinics with offerings including acupuncture, massage therapy, CranioSacral Therapy, yoga therapy, Ayurvedic counseling, chiropractic, and behavioral health/clinical counseling, for a sliding-scale fee.  Until a Pawling location is finalized, programs will be held at Inner Balance Studio.

 “If you’re as passionate as we are about community, contemplative practices and holistic health, please consider a tax-deductible donation to support our launch,” Semel says. “To all wellness practitioners, we welcome a connection with you.”
