With over 16 years in clinical practice and almost as long as a yoga teacher and practitioner, Zohra brings a unique approach to chiropractic healing. Zohra’s philosophy: “My vision for Indigo was to create a place where true healing can begin, and where clients are supported on their journey to wellness. I am passionate about the power of transformation and healing available to us physically, emotionally, and spiritually through yoga and chiropractic care. “I am trained as a massage therapist and chiropractic physician with an emphasis on rehabilitation. My Healthy Back classes empower people to take an active role in their healing. My yoga classes are challenging, deep, and fun! As a student of yoga, I am fascinated how this ancient philosophy of yoga offers tools that help us be awake, aware, conscious and steady in our modern world. I love the journey of exploring this path, for my own health and vitality, and for how it informs my teaching. I am in awe of the transformation that is available to us through yoga.”

 Yoga is a journey of self-discovery and wellness. It’s there in the good times and the bad, much like an old friend, reminding me to breathe and laugh at myself. I have practiced yoga for over 15 years and became a teacher to share the joy I feel when practicing. My classes are set to music and focus on the connection between breath and movement. I want students to leave class feeling stronger, calmer and more confident. Yoga props and modifications are offered making my classes accessible to most students. When not on the mat, I can be found working as a Speech Language Pathologist. I am also passionate about health, nature and music.

Love says ‘I am everything.’  Wisdom says ‘I am nothing.’  Between the two, my life flows.” – Nisargadatta Maharaj
Sharing the many gifts yoga has to offer with my community is an honor . I have been practicing for over ten years now. From the beginning, yoga captivated me with its healing effects on the mind, body, and spirit. Over the years, yoga has taught me to cultivate a more peaceful mind. This allows me to experience higher states of consciousness: love, wisdom, and creativity. That is ultimate freedom. It teaches me to ditch the old conditioning of my brain and lower the states of awareness that contribute to negative emotions. I have found that when the mind and body are at peace, it lets the flow of ultimate freedom, love, wisdom, and creativity to occur more readily. My practice has grown into an ever-evolving lifestyle that I believe will continue across my lifetime. My vision is to empower others to heal themselves and their lives with this practice. I am so passionate about this practice because of its powerful ability to transform bodies and lives. It inspires us to look deep within ourselves. With the practice of meditation and yoga, we find that all we need is already within ourselves. All we need to do is turn inward and embrace it. Kate was nationally recognized by Yoga Alliance (one of the largest non-profit yoga associations with over 77,000 members) and has received a full scholarship to advance her knowledge and expertise of the practice. Kate has her 200hour certification and is currently working towards her 500hour certification with Katelyn Gallegher, Angela Greenwood, and Lisa Wells of Live Well Yoga Studio. A graduate of Oregon State University, she considers herself to be a forever-rain- loving Oregonian. Indigo Yoga studio feels like her “home” studio as she loves the community there.

Pilates

I discovered Pilates while my mother was taking lessons as a part of her physical therapy program. I was so amazed at how this one movement system was not only rehabbing my moms body but her overall mind/body connection. I loved that it was accessible to all body types and fitness levels. At the time I was a professional photographer and teaching at George Fox University and left behind camera bodies for the human body. I knew I still loved to teach so it still felt so right to make the leap. As a teacher I am still a constant student. I am constantly trying to learn and grow myself as a better teacher to better my students experience in class. I am passionate about teaching the classical Pilates method and teaching my students to feel it in there own bodies and use it not just in mat class but take those Pilates principals into there everyday lives for better ease of movement. I am comprehensively trained in the classical style of Pilates in all levels on all the equipment through master instructor Dorothee Vandewalle. I am also certified through Peak Pilates and am a level three Fascial Stretch Therapist.

“Yoga is about finding space. Space to breathe, space to move freely, space between our busy thoughts and our deeper, calmer self. I practice yoga so that I can move through life feeling less cramped and bound up, not only in my body, but also my heart and mind. I teach yoga because I believe this space and freedom is available to everyone, and that we all deserve to live with more compassion and ease in our lives. I feel fortunate to have studied with many great teachers at Indigo including Zohra Campbell and Michael Steinke and to have completed my teacher training with Sarah Joy Marsh, founder of YogaJoy and the Daya Foundation, in 2014.”

Yin, Hatha and Soundscape Yoga

More Info

As a life long student of the healing arts I believe that within each of us exists the innate ability to heal ourselves and our surroundings. It is an ambition of mine to assist others in discovering and refining this ability. I am playful in my activities, utilizing and challenging my body in physical ways. I enjoy bicycling, unicycling, hiking, white water rafting, contact juggling, and sideways sports, to name a few. Don’t be surprised to find me scaling a wall or swinging from a tree. I am interested in community gardens and promoting edible urban landscapes. I believe it a virtue to be intimately involved with the food we grow, prepare, and eat. I am excited to share with others on the path of self discovery. In my classes I will encourage practitioners to challenge their bodies physically to create strength, while surrendering to their energies, discovering openness. The mind is amazing. Led by imagination there is no limit to what we may experience. Namaste

Warmest greetings! My name is Diane Davidson, newest LMT at Indigo Wellness Center! I’d like to introduce myself by sharing with everyone why I chose massage therapy for my career and my personal philosophy. I’d also like to acknowledge Indigo Wellness Center for being an integral part of my process. For over three years I have been a dedicated student of yoga. The clarity and balance I receive from my practice does not restrict itself to the time I am on my mat. All aspects of my life have received the benefits of my practice. The literal translation of yoga (from Sanskrit) is “yoke” or “union”. The practice is an acknowledgement that your mind, spirit and body are one. To remain physically healthy we must also be mentally and spiritually healthy. Each of these is connected to the others; they are yoked. It was from this place that I made my decision to attend Oregon School of Massage, where I learned further about myself and my connection to those who strive for inner peace and understanding. I recently graduated and earned my license (LMT #17602). I feel that my massage career is an extension of my yoga practice, a modality that fosters union. All people have an intuitive understanding of what brings health and quality to their spirit, mind and body. When we follow our internal wisdom, we become our own counselors, teachers, doctors and best friends. Meditation and self evaluation are two critical elements that keep us in touch with our intuitive nature. Massage provides a natural opportunity to practice the aforementioned steps. As your massage therapist, I will provide open and honest communication and respect that you’ve come to me with the desire for a successful and fulfilling experience. On your lifelong journey of personal wellness, I am but a humble guide. I am grateful for the opportunity to share my passion of balance and health through massage with you! I found Indigo Wellness Center in my search for a local yoga studio after moving to Salem three years ago. Ever since it has been like a second home to me: a place of solace, friendship and manifestation. I would like to thank each of my teachers for being a source of inspiration to pursue my career choice. Dr. Zohra Campbell and Tara McGuire have further encouraged my growth by offering me a place on the Indigo team since my massage training began. Continuing my education remains a high priority. I am a student of the YogaWorks teacher training program that Indigo Wellness is currently hosting. It is my honor to be of service to my community at Indigo Wellness Center!

Tai Chi

More Info

Maggie Shelton has been a lifelong student of the Eastern arts and teaching Tai Chi since 1989. She studied at the Pasadena School for Tai Chi with Mary Yang and has trained with the Yang family lineage in Hong Kong. As part of teaching in California, she integrated the practice of Tai Chi with her psychotherapy practice to help patients recognize it as a form of self healing. Maggie has been an integral part of mental health training, meditation retreats and co-developed programs to further the benefits of Tai Chi & psychotherapy treatment. She maintains a special love for teaching, for helping students create a context for the practice. For these classes, Maggie brings a method of teaching that is primarily student focused, intent on developing the basics of Tai Chi practice for all health benefits. There no expectations of fast advancement, each student is encouraged to practice where they are and learn at their own pace. Each class is about helping everyone learn about their own health and how to develop the benefits. It’s been said that Tai Chi is a first cousin to Yoga, that they are extended parts of the same family. They have a similar purpose in helping each student find their best place for healthy living. We’re excited to add Maggie’s class to all of the different modalities at Indigo. It’s another member of the family we’re building for Salem.

Sunday Restorative Yoga

More Info

As a teacher with a holistic training in classical hatha yoga with an emphasis in anatomical correctness and pranayama, my approach to yoga considers the individual’s overall well being. Through studying yoga for seven years and receiving my Yoga Alliance teacher training from Bob Smith and Ki McGraw, DC, it is a joy to join the wonderful team of yogis, chiropractors and healers at Indigo. I have been teaching yoga for the past two years, and spent this past summer in an intensive two months of yoga training in Ubud, Bali. As I have learned from a doctor of chiropractic medicine, my approach to teaching asana is deeply founded in spinal alignment and an awareness of the skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems of the body. In teaching, I assist students in finding their right alignment, and encourage listening to one’s own body and working within the limits of one’s own capabilities in each moment. With the addition of pranayama focus throughout the asana practice, each part of my classes are accompanied by an awareness of the breath. As long as students are achieving a long, neutral spine and free, deep breathing, everything else that is accomplished in class is extra credit! It is a joy to share the gift of yoga, and I look forward to seeing you in class soon.
