The Jim Thorpe Yoga Studio, located at 434 Center street in Jim Thorpe, hosts a grand opening celebration on Saturday, September 29, beginning at 8:00 AM with free yoga classes for all levels, scheduled fun activities throughout the day, and concluding with an evening meditation from 7:30 to 8:30 PM.
“Yoga has been an important part of my life since 1997, and my passion has grown to the extent that I wanted to share its many physical and mental benefits with the local community,” says owner and entrepreneur Maya Kowalcyk. “ I am excited about the opportunity to teach people of all physical capabilities ways to lessen the pain and stress in their everyday lives.”
The schedule of the day’s events is posted at JimThorpeYoga, and includes an interactive juggling show, hula hooping, crafts, music, yoga sessions and a drawing to win a free month of unlimited yoga classes or a free yoga mat.
Maya, a certified instructor through Yoga Alliance, has been practicing yoga since 1997 and has been teaching in Jim Thorpe and the Lehigh Valley since 2008. She is also certified in Child Play Yoga.
Her previous career as an 11th grade English teacher, woven with her passion for yoga, inspired her to open her own yoga studio on Center Street.
Jim Thorpe Yoga offers meditation, yoga classes for kids and adults, private and semi-private yoga, belly dance, workshops, and getaways for groups of all sizes.
