Pause Yoga hosting open house
Amesbury’s Pause Yoga is planning a gala weekend to celebrate its official unveiling.
Previously known as People Yoga’s Co-Op, the business changed its name and operational model earlier this month.
On Sunday, the public is invited to attend an open house from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Michael Bernier and Ed Justen will play live music, Webster Saintpreux of Web Wellness will give chair massages, and snacks and drinks will be served. Guests will have the opportunity to meet the teachers and enter raffles for products and classes.
Additionally, a private ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held today with the Amesbury Chamber of Commerce. Tonight at 6:30, participants of all yoga levels, ages 10 and older, are welcome to attend the Community Karma Yoga Class and pay by donation.
Pause Yoga is located on the second floor of 36 Main St. For more information, call 508-333-4160 or visit www.pauseyogastudio.com.
