Shamrock Wellness is a family owned yoga and massage therapy studio in Carmel, Indiana. Linda, Amy and Eric Banter are excited to have the opportunity to fulfill their vision to integrate the modalities of yoga and massage into medicine. With the help of Amy Banter, MD and Riverview Hospital, this vision is now in motion.
Whether you are looking to improve the health in your body, the stability in your mind or accelerate your spiritual growth, the ancient art of yoga can take you down any or all of these paths. We offer yoga classes in Carmel, IN seven days a week as we are happy to share the art of yoga with the community. After just a few sessions, you should reap a multitude of benefits. The goal of yoga is to create body awareness, which usually results in people becoming more mindful, present and aware of their lives and actions. Many describe this as the “spiritual” aspect of yoga – the basic mindfulness that balance can bring to our lives!
