Eternal Health Yoga boosting wellness in New Albany

NEW ALBANY — A morning of tranquility and peace can be found at Eternal Health Yoga, nestled in downtown New Albany.

“Yoga really gives the peace of mind and stillness of the mind. I feel totally focused,” said yoga teacher and student Kelly Morris. 

Shelli Carpenter, director and owner of the Louisville-based Eternal Health Yoga, opened her second studio on Elm Street in New Albany. However, the demand for yoga in Southern Indiana was clear, so in the fall, she moved the studio to Market Street, right in the hustle and bustle of New Albany’s downtown.

“We also didn’t seem to have as much attention. The space here is bigger too, and we needed more space,” she said. “I like being down here and being part of the community. I like being among the other business owners, and all of the people who come here. That’s what yoga is. It’s the unifying practice, and we felt a little isolated where we were before.”

Carpenter said the response from the community has been very positive. 

“We are still growing and getting the word out. It takes a bit to get the awareness out there, but it’s been great with businesses such as Jimmy’s Music Center downstairs and karate next door. We have a variety of other people and businesses around, which is great,” said Carpenter. 

Morris, who lives in Louisville, is equally excited about the new space on Market Street.

“It’s beautiful. The sunlight is so warming and happy. Also, New Albany in general feels homey,” she said. “I like coming over here, and I’m excited that I get the opportunity to teach over here. The changes happening in New Albany as a town are exciting.”

Eternal Health Yoga in New Albany offers eight classes throughout the week. Carpenter explained that the yoga offered is mainly Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga and Vinyasa. The Yin Yoga is a Taoist yoga that focuses on joint and connective tissue while Vinyasa is a flowing practice.
