Grace and Glory Yoga Opening New Fishtown Studio
After about a year in their South Kensington location at Oxford Mills, Grace and Glory Yoga will soon be shutting those doors for good and opening up a new studio on Fishtown’s Frankford Avenue under new ownership, with classes starting this week.
As Brittany Everett, a Grace and Glory instructor and now owner of the new Frankford Avenue studio at 2220 Frankford Avenue tells me, “Fishtown is a great place to be. The people of Fishtown support local businesses: they shop locally, they eat locally, they drink locally. And we wanted to be more in Fishtown and be seen by the public.”
While Everett says they are thinking of this as a new studio opening, rather than simply moving locations, she tells me folks can expect the same kind of vibe as the Oxford Mills studio — “industrial, warm, earthy” — and the same style of Baptiste-inspired power yoga classes. The main difference is that, as the owner of Grace and Glory Yoga Fishtown, Everett will be taking the reigns at the new location while fellow Grace and Glory Yoga owner Allie Nunzi runs the show at the Northfield location. The new studio will have room for 55 yogis at a time, and Everett says the schedule will be similar to that of Oxford Mills, with a few additional late-evening classes added.
So, when can you check out the new studio for yourself? Well, very soon actually. The Fishtown studio will start holding classes this Wednesday, October 28th. (The Oxford Mills studio will be holding classes through November.) Then, they’ll have a grand opening party on Sunday, November 1st. The grand opening will kick off with a free 75-minute class at 10:30 a.m., then they’ll be hanging out (and giving out prizes from local spots like Ritual Ritual, Towners Juicery, North Bowl, and more!) throughout the day. And if you can’t make it to that, word on the street is they’ll be getting in on the First Friday action, too.
Once the new studio’s Mind Body Online store is up and running, you can sign up for the grand opening class here. (And an exciting side note/warning: This new location is just down the street from Pizza Brain. Helloooo, post-yoga pizza parties!)
