Peace Yoga Studio has outgrown their small location on Main Street, and recently moved to a new location at N88W16733 Appleton Ave., inside the Bradley Realty building.
At the Grand Opening, which is set for Saturday, Nov. 12 from 1-3 p.m., the community will have a chance to meet the instructors and see the new location. Vendors like Mary Kay, Silpada Designs, will be showing products , and chairside massages will be available at the event.
Classes at the new location accommodate three to 16 people, and new students can drop in for a free class anytime. The class schedule is listed online, and includes classes targeted to all levels, including people who have physical limitations.
Gentle Yoga is a new class on Thursday mornings for people who feel they have limitations because of injury, weight, age, or disability. Students can participate in the class while seated in a chair.
Another new class is Kids' Yoga on the second Friday of the month, and a Pilates class on Thursday evenings.
“Pilates is a set of floor exercises that focus on strengthening the core,” said owner Diane Sutrick.
Yoga and Pilates may also have many benefits.
“Practicing yoga improves my strength, flexibility, it helps me relax, and improves my mood,” said student Tracy Merten.
Each student can work toward their personal goals at their own pace.
“There are things our teacher is working on, and she shares her challenges with the class. As we improve, we can also watch her improve,” Merten said. “We’re growing together.”
In addition to holding yoga and pilates classes, every season Sutrick plans to hold a “Harvesting Your Abundance” workshop. Her fall retreat was held in October, and it focused on relaxation and nurturing activities.
“The retreat featured activities to help focus on how you are already blessed, and how to open yourself to more abundance,” Sutrick said.
Sutrick also believes in giving back to the community. On every third Sunday of the month from 10-11 a.m. she holds a free community yoga class. She accepts donations to the Menomonee Falls Food Pantry instead of the normal class fee.
