New, Bapitiste influenced Yoga classes will be offered at starting Sept. 8. Owner of Kismet in Andover Tom Quinlan and Director of Wellness Norm Brzycki from Kismet are opening a new Yoga studio within Health Time.
NewVision Yoga and will feature hot, power yoga. Quinlan and Brzycki transformed the aerobic room inside Health Time into a Yoga studio. They have softened the lighting, added new curtains, a Buddha and other finishing touches to the room.
Both Quinlan and Brzycki are proud of their staff of Yoga teachers who have studied in China and India and completed an intense three-year training program to become certified to teach Baptiste Yoga. They are experts at what they do, Brzycki said.
Baptiste power Yoga is the most popular yoga in the US today, according to Brzycki, along with Bikram.
In addition to regular classes, NewVision Yoga will offer Yoga workshops for beginners and a foundations class on Wednesday evenings for those who are new to Yoga or need a "tune up."
If you'd like to take a class, you can buy individual classes or groups of classes, but do not need to be a member of NewVision Yoga.
Owner of Health Time Corey Lilley is excited about the partnership. She has been wanting to bring yoga classes to her gym, and both Quinlan and Brzycki wanted to offer a gym to their customers, so it worked out perfectly, Lilley said.
The gym also strengthened their Zumba program and added a disco ball to the Zumba room.
"We’re going to make it rock, like no other place does Zumba,” Lilley said.
NewVision Yoga classes will start on Sept. 8, but be sure to attend their grand opening on Sept. 22., which will be similar to a health fair and will feature body fat testing, blood pressure testing, Zumba and kickboxing demonstrations and more.
