Midtown Yoga Is Coming to Durham!
Wellness leader Christy Percival has joined the Midtown Yoga team in preparation for opening the new studio in Durham.
Midtown Yoga will open its second Triangle-area yoga studio in early 2020. The new Midtown Yoga Durham studio will be in the new University Hill development. The nearly 3,000 square foot space will feature two heated studios and offer a variety of yoga classes, meditation, workshops, teacher trainings, retreats, event space opportunities and more.
The addition of the second studio space inside one location will not only enable us to hold more classes at peak times, but will also increase our ability to host more community building events during key times. The larger studio will focus on heated and hot classes while the second studio will be able to host heated classes but will also vary to room temperature to focus on specialized classes like strength, meditation, prenatal, private instruction and even parties. The University Hill location will feature the unique studio ambient lighting made popular at the North Hills location as well as luxurious restrooms including showers, a community space and a retail shop that carries the latest in yoga apparel, books, self-care items and more.
“We aim to provide classes for all walks of life – whether you’re a 500 hour certified yogi or you’re trying your first class – we want you to feel welcome and at home at Midtown Yoga. We teach and partner with the best yoga teachers in our community to invite in a diverse community while consistently providing an experience that shapes and challenges you both physically and mentally.”
—Emily Wallace, Midtown Yoga Cofounder and Operator
