About Us

Centered seeks to support people in reconnecting to a more mindful state of being. We provide 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, private events 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, reiki practitioners, a tai chi instructor and certified meditation instructors.

We are happy to work with you in co-creating a holistic treatment plan to bring the change you wish to see in your life. Setting up a Holistic Health Consult with Lauren may be a nice place to start. We also welcome you to drop in anytime for a class or simply hang in our community space to check the place out. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Internship Program

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 are fulfilling college credit hours and have gone on to become healthcare practitioners,  yoga instructors, massage therapists, 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.
