Nourishing Storm Studio & Cafe

Nourishing Storm Wellness Company is made up of experienced instructors, coaches and foodies that are passionate about healing and sharing wellness practices, each designed to inspire and transform. We offer weekly classes (both indoor and outdoor), monthly Yoga and Food inspired workshops, private and group health coaching as well as an array of healthy foods in our NEW cafe. Our mission is to make the practice of yoga, healthy eating and joyful living approachable, purposeful and nourishing for all.

What Drives Us

Our Mission

Nourishing Storm is about rapture, movement, joyfulness, delight; the moment you realize everything in your life has prepared you for this awakening of feeling alive, free and purely at peace. Whatever makes you free, is worth the storm to get you there.

Our guiding principles

Our Philosophy

The Nourishing Storm instructors and foodies call themselves “inspirational guides” that take pride in helping others find harmony, health and happiness. Whether you are looking to feel alive, breathe a little easier, be less stressed, find your life’s purpose, feel connected, be part of an amazing community, nourish your mind, body and/or spirit; we are dedicated to your health and wellness.

We believe in 3 guiding priorities to living (and healing) well …


Awareness is always the first step and the ultimate catalyst for change. Being aware means understanding that our lives are made up of many components including relationships, love, work, play, creativity, spirituality. If we are unbalanced in any of these areas, it will be hard to accomplish our nutrition and general wellness goals. Sometimes just being aware and then making it a priority to re-balance is enough. In other cases, at different times in our lives, we need to make major and more difficult changes. That is why the NS team is here to support you along the your journey.

We’ll ask powerful questions and help you lean into living your best life  –  and it all starts with awareness.


Nutrition is key to total wellness! After all, we are what we eat. So, mindful eating means taking time to understand how we feel during and after we eat certain foods. Do we feel energized and balanced or sluggish and drained? Beyond that, taking notice of how well we digest the food we eat can lead to total awareness in mindful eating. 

Along with knowing the foods that nourish us, we also must learn how to create balanced meals everyday, all throughout the day. Our bodies are different today than they were yesterday, therefore it is essential to be mindful of what we eat, what our food ate, and how that food will ultimately nourish our body and mind.

Come visit our cafe or meet with one of our health coaches to make a plan for your nutrition goals. 


Our bodies are designed to move. We are made of energy and that energy determines how we move throughout our lives by way of experiences, emotions and body make-up . Our body is a temple and to treat it right, we must keep it in motion!

The best way to move our bodies is to find the right practice and teacher that fit your style and wellness goals. At Nourishing Storm, our instructors are attuned to each student’s experience from the moment they walk in the door to how they are feeling when they leave.

Come meet us, try a class (both indoor and outdoor) and find your style. 

A real focus on Awareness, Nutrition & Movement will nourish any storm.

Featured Staff &Yogi of the Month

Yogi Staff Of The Month- John

It’s been just about one year since I graduated from Nourishing Storm’s 200 Hour Teacher Training program. I remember feeling so apprehensive and ill-prepared as my first meditation class approached.
Of course this was nothing more than the butterflies of nervousness attacking a lifelong introvert before his first performance. The truth is that Kristin Ritter and Megan Connolly had thoroughly prepared me
for this new journey.

NS Yogi Student Of The Month-MICHELLE RAQUET

How long have you been practicing yoga?

To be honest, off and on for many years but I was never really steady or very skilled in it until about a year or so ago (but still not exactly skilled – I just know a little more now. I have lots more to learn!). I really only used to use yoga as an additional means of exercise rather than for the benefits it really provided for the body and mind. Read more … 

Spiraling to Wellness

Each month at Nourishing Storm we explore a universal theme such as love, connection, beauty, trust, bliss, joy and even persistence, balance, strength, power and more! 

You can join us by attending one of our theme inspired classes or events, trying one of our nourishing sips or bites in the cafe, or by exploring the journal (Layer 1 and 2 released- first 24 themes) on your own in the books or with a group! Private Coaching also available with the author and contributing healers.  

Upcoming Adventures

Live By the Sun, Love by the Moon Yoga & Camping Adventure

On this two night yoga & camping adventure into beautiful French Creek State Park, we will be hitting the trails and finding our practice among new terrain by day and sleeping under the stars (and a full moon on Saturday the 14th) along with cooking up tasty treats at the bonfire by night. This retreat is about celebrating our connection to nature, to ourselves and to all those that surround you.

September 13th-15th 2019

Special note for teachers: We are offering a 3 hour continuing education course on “Teaching Outdoors & Leading Retreats”
