New Yoga studio opens in Waterloo

On August 1, 2016, Om Yoga Waterloo opened its doors in downtown Waterloo.  Located at Suite 102 in the Main Street Mall, Om Yoga Waterloo is the area’s only yoga studio that offers a wide variety yoga classes six days per week.

“Yoga is an excellent tool for improving health and wellbeing, but we’ve noticed that there are not a lot of options in our area for people who wanted to learn about yoga.” Said studio owner Evangeline Reale Jones.  Co-owner Mary Peck said “We really want to share the benefits of this practice with our neighbors here in the heart of the Finger Lakes.  We think this location is convenient for everyone-it’s well lit, has ample parking, and it’s right on 5 & 20. There are other studios in the area, but none offer the wide variety of classes and times that we do.”

The studio co-owners are both yoga instructors who are registered with Yoga Alliance, having completed their teacher training at Ahimsa Yoga in Ithaca, NY.  Both noted that having to travel outside the area to practice yoga is difficult and inconvenient.  They hope that having a studio in the area will encourage more people to explore a yoga practice.  The studio is currently offering classes six days per week with a variety of different times and styles, including hot yoga and chair yoga.  They are also offering a kickboxing class on Friday nights. Classes, times, and pricing are available on their website,  They recommend checking their Facebook page for the date of the upcoming Grand Opening celebration, planned for early September.
