Happening Right Now at our Studios
Welcome to Pink Lotus
The mission of Pink Lotus Yoga is to provide a well-rounded, individualized approach to fitness, wellness, stress reduction and relaxation in order to restore balance and functionality to the systems of the body using approaches steeped in the traditions and values of Yoga. In addition, creating an environment that gives back through community outread and philanthropy.
We walk through life, often too busy to look at the simple beauties of nature, often thinking of what we have to do next and forgetting to enjoy the present moment. However, Yoga allows us to spend time with ourselves; listening to our bodies, working with our bodies and following our breath.
Through Yoga we are able to:
- Relax our body and mind
- Restore the way our body functions by promoting strength and flexibility
- Revitalize strength and balance
Pink Lotus Yoga has locations at 20 North Main Street in Woodstown, NJ and 1242 Kings Highway in Swedesboro, NJ.
The goal of Pink Lotus Yoga is to help find contentment and to encourage everyone to recognize the beauty and grace all around.

Why the name Pink Lotus Yoga...
Pink is a bright, yet calming color. Happiness is often associated with the color pink. The lotus flower grows from muddy, murky water. Once it hits the surface it blooms into the beautiful flower we all see. What is amazing is that something so gorgeous can grow from something so dark and dismal; one of the many miracles of nature. At nighttime this flower closes its petals and returns to the water, waiting for the sun's rays to awaken it again and again. The human body is meant to function in the same way. The sun prompts us from slumber. We open throughout the day and return to a restful, quiet state in the darkness of night.
The more seasoned Yoga practitioner will recognize the lotus flower as the symbol of the Chakras. Chakras are the energy centers in the body. There are seven in total, each represented by a lotus flower of a varying number of petals and colors.
The color pink symbolizes beauty, grace and goodness. The lotus symbolizes purity of heart and mind. In combination this is a very powerful symbol. The goal of Pink Lotus Yoga is to help find contentment and encourage everyone to recognize the beauty and grace all around.
