Do you ever feel like you just not make it through the day, with
all of the demands placed on you? Between shuttling kids everywhere
they need to go, endless laundry, dishes that never end, and every
other obligation you have as a parent, partner, employee, and more,
sometimes we all need to just step back and realize that nobody's
happy if we're not happy! That's where Om on the
Range yoga studio comes in.
For the past several months, Om on the Range is the place I go
when I need a little more balance in my life; I know I can enter
their doors stressed out, and come out feeling like a new, calmer
version of me. (Need convincing? Check out

I should also add that it is the place I am sent when my family
decides they also need a calmer (read: nicer) version of me!
Annie and Beth (co-owners and sisters) are the most genuinely
sweet people you could meet, and they make sure to give
individualized attention to each person in their classes! I attend

location only) are even hotter. A towel and a water bottle are a
While I love taking classes on my own, Om on the Range also
offers some great programming for families. They offer
special family classes for kids 5 and up (next one is Saturday,
May 7, and we plan to attend!). And each Valentine's weekend, Beth
and her husband Terry offer a couples yoga workshop. They offer
free classes for the community on Saturdays at noon, taught by some
of their yoga teachers-in-training.
If you live in Wicker Park or Bucktown and haven't tried out Om
on the Range yet, it's time! Then you can come back here and thank
me after you do…
