Founded in International Falls by Christa Heibel, Replenish opened its first studio doors in 2010. The goal at Replenish has always been to serve students in the spirit of seva, the Sanskrit word meaning selfless service, or to give back.
As a child, Christa felt most at home on Rainy Lake and has often referred to the lake as her “soul’s home” for the serenity and harmony that Rainy Lake has given her. It is this peace and tranquility that Rainy Lake provides that has presented the perfect backdrop to REPLINISH… mind, body and spirit… and aptly has named of her practice as such. As often as possible in the warmer months you will find both private and public yoga classes conducted on the shores and islands of Rainy Lake.
Essential oils entered Christa’s life as another conscious decision about healthful living, the yoga principle of Purity and a more holistic healthcare approach. Over time, she expanded her experimentation with oils to treat various aches and pains as well as receive overall health benefits. Today, the use of essential oils is incorporated into Christa’s everyday life for not only for treatment uses, but also in the purification of her home within both beauty and cleaning products.
