Innovation

Luz Orea is the founder of Amma Ha Wellness Center, a Bachelor of Nutrition and Food Sciences graduate, she has dedicated her entire life to search for comprehensive well-being in people. She established a wellness center in San Andres Cholula, Puebla.

The idea arose from the concern to promote general well-being in people through the study and practice of Yoga.

The purpose of the company is to provide a space that allows people to reconnect with themselves to improve their health and promote well-being and balance in their lives. The intention is to cause a positive impact on the participants so that they in turn have a positive impact on society.

All professionals who work in the center dedicate their activities to the integral well-being of people, following the UN global objectives for sustainable development in terms of health, well-being, gender equality, peace, justice and development of solid institutions.

Inspiration

One of the things that stands out is that the participants feel in a safe, respectful and encouraging place that allows them to express themselves through the practice of Yoga in an organic way, while achieving the balance and well-being they seek.

“Individually, all the people who attend Amma Yoga start to feel peace, empathy, and compassion for others and for themselves, I think it gives them the opportunity to connect with themselves, recognize who they are, and identify the purpose of life. Many people who enter Amma Yoga say they feel free, like in a peaceful Oasis that gives them a break from external tensions.”

“Many of the practices are designed to promote personal growth, raising vibration and expand awareness, which encourages social impact activities that are supported by the center to create support networks within the community, such as donations for people affected by a natural disaster.”


Overall impact

The impact it has on the participants is fantastic. All attendees are provided with a safe, spacious, ventilated space with professionals of the different Yoga techniques such as: Hatha Yoga, Hatha Vinyasa, Healing Yoga and Restoration Yoga.

All attendees receive a respectful and assertive treatment that makes them feel at home. The sessions teach participants to live in a kinder, wiser, and more compassionate place. A world that allows us to live in balance body and mind. A world where we not only improve our own well-being but also extend this well-being to others in our community. The center’s mission is to create a loving and peaceful world, while the vision is to make the practice of Yoga a “state of life” instead of a lifestyle.

The most gratifying thing is that the attendees themselves express their progress through actions that positively impact their lives and the lives of their community. They state that they feel very happy and at peace with the practices carried out in the center.

In the short term, participants develop a state of balance and general well-being, while in the long term they develop bonds of empathy, kindness, compassion, and support in their community. The tangible evidence is in the initiatives that the students themselves create and that the center supports through food collection campaigns to support their community, but above all, the capacity they develop to respect and connect with their environment.


Business benefit

The good work done with the practice of yoga gave rise to a whole concept of wellness, where new divisions were included for the company (Amma Training, Magic Mamma and Amma Ride) with these new divisions could be employed and benefit more people, the scope of Amma expanded and thus its contribution to the community.

Social and environmental benefit

The social benefit is evident since the participants have a positive impact on their community by developing collection initiatives for their region. The students create bonds and support networks that spread throughout Cholula, Puebla and their surroundings.

Respect and care for the environment is practiced by making participants aware of the connection we have with our natural environment. We are all connected and nature is no exception. The expansion of consciousness is only achieved through respect for life and love and care for our environment.
