A special congratulations to Southwest Institute of Healing Arts (SWIHA) for receiving the 2012 Natural Choice Award for “Holistic Business of the Year” as well as SWIHA’s Yoga Studio & Educational Facility, Spirit of Yoga (SOY), for receiving the 2012 Natural Choice Award for “Yoga Studio!”

“THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO VOTED FOR US ~ We are Humbled and Honored!”

Sponsored by Natural Awakenings magazine, the Natural Choice Awards provides readers the opportunity to select individuals and businesses across the Valley each year that deserve recognition for their efforts in health and wellness, and green living.  The winners are based on popular vote from online ballot submissions at NaturalAz.com, from April 1 to June 10, 2012.

Wayne Hoffman and Tara Celaya had the pleasure of attending the Holistic Chamber of Commerce and Natural Awakenings mixer, an award gathering Tuesday evening.  It was their honor to accept these awards on behalf of SWIHA and SOY.  At this event, it was their pleasure to gift two 5-class yoga studio packages away, as well as to meet an entire room of amazing healers!  THEY ARE PASSIONATE AND IT SHOWS!

From KC Miller ~ Founder of SWIHA, SWINA and SOY:
