Yoga Studio Joins Development in Downtown Webster
Yoga Studio JOYasanAH, LLC has joined the growth and spirit of the downtown Webster area, opening its doors at 255a Main Street between MapFre and the mural being created to showcase local talent. The studio has ample parking behind the studio in the municipal lot, so students don’t have to lose their OM trying to find roadside parking before class.
JOYasanAH offers a wide variety of yoga classes for students of all ages and body types. Classes are offered five times a day including 6:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., noon, 5:30 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. The studio has a changing room for anyone who wants to come before or after work or on their lunch break. There are also three weekend classes and workshops at special times. Classes include flow yoga, gentle yoga, Zumba ® , SPA Yoga ® , Renew Body Sequence ® , and Aerial yoga. Classes are taught by six different instructors, including studio owner, Bonnie Wallace. Bonnie also offers private yoga and reiki sessions at the studio. A full class schedule can be found on the website, www.joyasahna.com, and updates and daily inspiration can be found on our FaceBook and Instagram pages.
The studio’s mission is to support each person’s journey to be well in body, mind, and spirit, and to be filled with JOY. The word ‘asana’ in Sanskrit translates to ‘settle into’ so the name of the studio means to settle into our joy. The ‘h’ at the end of the word is because students leave saying, ‘AH.’ The name is pronounced joy-AH-sana. There is a great deal of research available on the mental and physical benefits of yoga, meditation and dancing. JOYasanAH combines all three in a beautiful sanctuary-like space, filled with plants and aromatherapy.
An open house, grand opening celebration will take place on Sunday, October 6 from 3-6 pm. Free 20 minute demo classes will be happening all afternoon. Local vendors will be present and discounts on memberships and class passes will be offered. To learn more about the event and the studio, visit the website at joyasanah.com or check them out on Facebook. You can also email the studio firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
