About Us

In a complicated world, Centered seeks to support people in reconnecting to a more mindful state of being. Centered provides a space that embraces the individual while recognizing the need for community. Our highly trained and trusted practitioners are devoted to their own daily practices and value the importance of a holistic way of life. As Lexington’s holistic community center since 2013, we are interested in supporting, educating and inspiring our world through the moving, visual and healing arts.

We offer a variety of daily classes as well as ongoing workshops focused on healing, deepening your practice, and personal development. Centered also provides physical space for a variety of ongoing community outreach programs and corporate wellness retreats. Our staff includes licensed massage therapists, certified yoga instructors, a licensed clinical social worker & transformational life coach, a professor & qigong instructor, a tai chi instructor, certified meditation instructors, two acupuncturists, and a family medicine physician.

We are a Registered Yoga School through Yoga Alliance. We’re also a professional member of AMTA and certified with Mental Health First Aid USA. Most of our class instructors are also therapists or bodyworkers. This multidisciplinary approach enriches the safety and experience of our students.

Internships

Our interns commit to at least 6 months with us, during which time they work at the front desk and on their own heart projects. Many of our interns have gone on to become yoga instructors, massage therapists, and healthcare practitioners, and they often facilitate workshops or are involved in other on-site projects during their time here. It’s beautiful to watch them blossom during their internships with us and we are so grateful to be able to support them in pursuing their dreams and sharing the benefits of holistic health with our world.

We welcome all members of our community at Centered. If finances are a limiting factor for you, please ask about scholarships and sliding scale opportunities, as we are often able to work with clients and students to find a way to make our classes financially accessible. Scholarship spaces are limited; please ask about availability if you are in need.
