OUR STORY

Whole305 has grown out of decades of learning about humanity--the science, the reality, the challenge and joy of life as a human--a human with relationships with others, work obligations, passions and service to people and causes that matter.

Whole305 was founded to support and foster mindfulness, clarity, and peace in our community and in our own selves. We offer a variety of approaches to learn and practice these essential elements of humanity, with the goal of supporting our whole being. A life where our relationships bring us joy and comfort. Where our work provides us stability and purpose. Where our parenting comes from love and respect, not fear and control.


Founded by Dr. Christine Hughes Pontier, a developmental psychologist whose path as a mother and practitioner of yoga and mindfulness has allowed her to see the common threads in all important teaching about humanity, Whole305 seeks to offer you insight into how you experience stresses of life (both big and small) and how you take care of yourself and others. You can choose to use this insight to be a better human, or to raise good humans, or to live a life that truly reflects who you are.
