Welcome to Synergy

Hello and welcome to Synergy, where our goal is helping you chart your personal path to wellness. Synergy is the first studio of its kind in the Cookeville area. Our focus is on the so-called "mind & body" disciplines, or exercise techniques that clear our busy minds by asking us to focus on our breath, pay attention, and carefully control our bodies. This mindfulness, focus and precision inevitably bring marked results in our physique. They also bring myriad holistic results, including improvements in concentration, agility, balance, posture, stamina, and mental/physical endurance, just to name a few. 

Joseph Pilates once said, "physical fitness is the first requisite to happiness." Although it may be debatable whether physical fitness itself is in fact the FIRST requisite to happiness, it is undeniable that reaching our optimum level of health, wellness and vitality adds to our enjoyment of everyday life, and it provides a practical ability to function productively within our bodies. 

Whether you are a seasoned athlete, or someone who is beginning a fitness regimen for the very first time, Synergy will work, together with you, to develop the right fitness approach for you personally. Fitness disciplines vary, as do personalities, and at Synergy we pledge to bring any and all of our resources to bear on finding the ideal program for you - one that not only suits your personality, but one that takes your individual needs into consideration, and fits appropriately into your lifestyle; one that you look forward to, rather than dread. One that is powerful enough to show physical results, but calm enough to bring rest and stillness when needed.

Learn to Meditate!

Introduction to the Simple Easy Every Day (SEED) Meditation Method - Wednesday, September 10 @ 5:30 p.m.

Our own Petti Groth recently returned from Sedona, AZ, where she graduated from a 200-hour Meditation Teacher Certification program at the McLean Meditation Institute. Learn how meditation has changed her life, and could change yours! Join us for a presentation about the 5 essentials of Meditation, followed by a short group meditation, discussion, and Q&A. It's so simple anybody can do it--really! In recent decades there have been hundreds of studies on the effects of meditation practice, confirming that regular meditators experience myriad benefits including better overall health, greater intuition, increased mental focus, improved memory, decreased re-activity to stress, and fewer doctor visits. Researchers also confirm that mediators have lowered cholesterol, lowered blood pressure, decreased anxiety and depression, lessened ADHD symptoms, normalized blood sugar, improved mood, increased fertility, and increased happiness. These studies have shown that meditation can help you sleep better, enhance your immunity, and even reduce chronic pain. Do you want to improve your quality of life? This is your chance to begin a life-changing journey! Chairs available. 50-60 min. No experience necessary. $12 walk-in, or use your class package to attend.

Want a resource for home? The Simple Easy Every Day Meditation Method book is now available at the front desk for $10, including tax.
