And all of a sudden, there was Yonder Yoga.
The 2,800-square-foot facility opened in early September, and by its second day of operation, it had sold 100 memberships, according to Selby Hill, RYT-200, one of three partners that own Yonder.
Moreover, after only three weeks of operation, Yonder is now offering 38 classes per week. Hill expects that number to climb to 45.
The Vinyasa yoga classes are heated to 90 degrees with infrared radiant heat, although one class each week is heated to only 80 degrees.
“I think people are really excited for what we’re trying to do for this neighborhood, this community and also just for yoga,” says Hill, offering an explanation for the studio’s immediate success.
Yonder is located in a new development called Westside Village at Moores Mill, 2260 Marietta Blvd NW, Suite 106. It features one studio that can accommodate up to 45 practitioners, locker rooms and showers, a lounge and some retail space.
Selby is excited about building the Yonder brand: “The idea of ‘yonder’ being a place you can see but haven’t yet reached resonates with anyone: the idea of yoga being a practice, and something that is not achieved or mastered, but rather a process, and that joy and the fulfillment that comes from that process.”
Look for Yonder to expand soon; Selby and her partners picked up the lease on the recently closed location of Thunderbolt Yoga at 3872 Roswell Road Northeast. She expects a grand opening before the end of the year.
