Greenleaf Studio

Helping people discover their innate wellbeing

After nine years, with our old web host it was time to dust off the cobwebs and start fresh!  Introducing Greenleaf's NEW website~ Please, pardon our site while under construction, but read on to see offerings! New Classes begin week of Oct. 25, 2021 through Dec.  17.  Watch for our updates!


Welcome to a studio unlike most yoga studios. A place you can feel at home, and accepted, yet experience real changes. Greenleaf is a safe haven . . . a nest to grow in and branch out from through its three core trunks emphasizing balance of Mind, Body & Spirit. Through guided meditation, mindfulness, relaxation, therapeutic yoga and self-hypnosis, Greenleaf offers a balanced, complimentary approach to well-being. I'm here to help you discover freedom in your body and mind!    Because I've never been one who  felt comfortable or well-served at  huge universities, impersonal mega churches, big-box fitness centers or in corporate culture, I created Greenleaf. I didn't want the experience  to be an  intimidating or esoteric experience or one with impersonal, public classroom. Instead Greenleaf is a respite in a hectic world for people of all walks of life no matter one's size, shape, physical or emotional challenge. Be it in person, indoor or out, or from the comfort of your home via Zoom, I've got you covered. See you on the path,

Peace and light, Pamela

This is Greenleaf Yoga

I'm Pamela O'Brien, a veteran yoga / meditation teacher with over 25 years of teaching experience, and 32 years of personal practice. Allow me to help guide you to the wellspring of contentment, well-being, and creativity within you through Greenleaf's unique three-trunk approach to experience  YOUR TRUE AUTHENTIC SELF!


Our private sessions, intimately-sized, tailored & modified classes, limited to 8 students in person, you'll  get hooked on the glow which comes after a yoga, meditation or hypnosis session. Warning! It is kind of addictive, but with no hangover, or guilty feelings :)) I believe in the effective power of intimacy-learning, and methods which compliment traditional healing. Most of us learn best with personal attention, sprinkled with the love and care we long for. It is my mission at Greenleaf Studio to meet you right where you are at. And, rather than disregarding any challenges you may present with, we discuss prior to classes or sessions what your needs may be and how to best approach your challenge.  There is no one size fits all yoga here, yet  everyone is welcome!

It isn't exactly hot-off-the-press news that the mind has a deep affect on the body, and that how we feel greatly impacts how we navigate deep waters of the mind.  There is a meme floating around the net which maybe attributed to trauma researcher Dr. Bessel van Der Kolk, "The body keeps the score."

Or you may have heard, the body holds the memory of an experience in its cells and tissues. Now discover ways you can harness the intelligence of your body and mind to find peace of mind and freedom in your body during these challenging times.

I BELIEVE IN YOU!  How?  Because I believe in the innate human creativity and problem-solving instinct which exists within each and everyone of us. It is within our hard wiring to thrive, yet at times things just can get a little wonky! That's where the consciousness of mindful practices such as meditation, yoga and even self hypnosis come in to play. I am here to help teach you a new way of looking at your challenges ! So, whether it is through guided self-hypnosis or the deep relaxation practice called yoga nidra , I promise to help you with common ~ shared  challenges like mining through your gift's to figure out your encore career; recover your spring in your step; and find a complimentary approach to fighting off anxiety and the blues.  You'll be introduced to your true self, the storehouse of inner well being, creating a renaissance in your life. So if you are struggling to recognize the voice of your authentic self to create your best life, reach out today without delay.
