Be Yoga just opened in the Rainey Street District!
Located in the Windsor (née Legacy on the Lake), Be Yoga is a no-frills studio, about 1,000 square feet, just a stone’s throw from the lake and across from the Milago condos.
Perhaps more intriguing than it’s location is the fact that it’s a donation based studio. Now, it’s not an entirely new concept – in fact, Black Swan Yoga is a studio that immediately comes to mine that does the same thing – but donation based yoga is still pretty cool. I wonder how successful the concept has been for other studios.
I went to a class on Saturday – and it was nice – I’ll definitely go back. The owner, Cici Parsons, really wants people to experience the studio. For those that can afford it – the suggested donation is $20, but for those that can’t – they just ask that you give what you can.
More on the studio later, but I was curious if any readers had been to a donation based studio, and what their experience was – and if they think it will work in Rainey Street (I hope so!). I guess if things get really bad – they can always call up this guy to help:
