Seattle Yoga News – Studio Closing, Opening, and Name Changing

The Yoga studio scene in Seattle is seeing some changes as we transition from February to March.

+ Om Yoga of Redmond is closing its doors after 2 years. Owner Karen Herold is an amazing woman for having a full time executive job, coaching her daughters’ sports teams, and of course, teaching and running a small business. Kudos to her for having realized her dream, and I wish her lots of happy and joyful “me” time. The last day for Om Yoga is March 6, 2010.

+ Hot Yoga of Issaquah is officially Terra Yoga. On Saturday, March 6, 2010, there will be an open-house celebration with food and music between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m., and a dedication at 2:00 p.m. Owner Carina Ostebovik renamed the studio after her middle name, Terra. The old name also no longer reflects the diverse styles offered in the space.

+ West Side Yoga and Doga is a new studio that just opened this past week, with the opening night on February 20, 2010. Since Ashtanga Yoga School closed in 2007, there hasn’t been a pure traditional Ashtanga school in Seattle (that I know of). West Side Yoga Doga seems to be filling in that gap. The web site also says that they are the only Doga studio in the US. Here’s wishing them the best, and as Neil Young would say, “long may you run”!

Good bye, hello, and godspeed!
