Close your eyes…inhale..exhale… and let your body be free. This was the message from Debonie Lewis to help her guests feel tranquil at the ribbon cutting for her new yoga center Aim Well Enterprise in a shared space with The Borough Restaurant, 8026 Paseo, Kansas City.

“The energy today was alive. It was positive.  I can speak in terms of aura [that] it was yellow and orange, I just felt so supportive with all good energy,” Lewis exclaimed.

On sit, Lewis will offer yoga classes early morning, evening and Sunday when The Borough is closed.  Initially, she will offer beginner-level yoga sessions once a week on a pay-as-you-go plan. 

Lewis, who began practicing yoga in 2014, is a 200-hour trained instructor with a goal of bridging the gap for both young and old who don’t have access to this wellness opportunity. 

Recognizing that research confirms the benefits of yoga physically, mentally and spiritually for people of all ages and socio-economic status, she plans to take yoga outside the studio and into the community.  Her goal is to reduce the inaccessibility of yoga due to costs, awareness and the lack of proximity.  

She has partnered to offer Aim Well Kids, free and donation-based yoga classes at Hogan Prep Academy and Lee Tolbert Charter School. She also plans to develop Aim Well Corporate to bring yoga and massage therapy to local businesses and their clients.  Therapists, acupuncturists or yoga teachers interested in being a part of Aim Well Corporate are encouraged to reach out to Lewis on her website.
