Yoga shop expands
Jul 21, 2015 at 12:43 PM
Owner Sandy Parker has relocated her yoga studio to larger space at the East Village Shopping Center, 701 E. Savidge St., Suite 3.
Anne VanderHoek, who ran Return2Wellness inside of Parker's former space at 701 E. Savidge St., has also moved to the new studio.
Parker said the businesses complement each other. For example, people who finish a yoga class can then visit VanderHoek for a massage. They can also use yoga for weight loss, then team up with VanderHoek for gluten-free diet plans.
“We're tied together in that way,” Parker said. “She works one-on-one and I work in groups.”
The move from less than 1,200 square feet to more than 2,100 has allowed for a changing room, additional classes, workshops and special events, according to Parker.
“To expand this much in less than two years is a huge step up for us,” Parker said.
Parker will move her sunrise yoga class to Lakeside Beach beginning at 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 12. The free class is open to the public.
“Yoga is something that physicians are recommending more and more,” Parker said. “I think people really appreciate having this (yoga studio) in Spring Lake.”
An open house is scheduled from 4-6 p.m. Saturday with live music, aerial yoga demonstrations, refreshments and door prizes.
