New Broadway yoga studio to celebrate grand opening Friday

SARATOGA SPRINGS>> Broadway has a new yoga studio, and it’s a new family’s endeavor.  

Husband and wife Justin and Camacha Wolfer, both yoga instructors, decided to open their business this fall, just after their marriage. The couple is also expecting their first child.
“We decided to just do it all at once,” Justin Wolfer said.

Justin Wolfer, of Saratoga, has been teaching yoga for the past five years a between many different studios around the area, “and I just kind of wanted to bring it all into one space.”

The owners are currently the only instructors, but they expect to bring more in soon. Camacha Wolfer will soon be teaching prenatal classes as well.

“For both me and my wife, we love what we do. We’ve been practicing for close to 10 years and its healed our bodies, it’s helped us to deal with anxiety and it’s really given us an internal compass to get in touch with what’s important to us,” Justin Wolfer said. “We just absolutely love sharing that with the students.”

The 1500 square-foot space, overlooking Broadway can hold about 30 students.

Reception has been great so far, the owners said. “We’re so happy with the community that we’re building here,” Justin Wolfer said, mentioning a special Sunday class after which the yogis eat brunch and socialize. “We’d like to be able to offer the space for fun social events as well,” he added.

Friday, the business will celebrate its grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 4 p.m. at the studio, located at 422 Broadway in Suite 202, above Northshire Bookstore.

The studio is offering grand opening membership deals. Membership includes unlimited classes, and can be paid for on either an annual or monthly basis. Members are welcome to use the studio space throughout the day, outside of class time. It currently has a library and tea area. The studio also has a plant wall to give the space an outdoorsy atmosphere.  

Yogis can also drop in to any class at $20 per class or buy a 10-class card for $140.

Class begin as early as 6 a.m. and as late as 7:30 at night.

All equipment is provided for students, or they are welcome to bring their own.
