Today, Jennifer Houghtaling, owner of Shanti Yoga on Wood Street, announced that they will be opening a second studio to serve the Natick area this February.
“From the moment we opened our doors, the studio thrived, we grew and grew, and the magic of the Shanti Yoga Community took hold,” said Houghtaling.
Houghtaling had planned to open a second studio in 2019, but shelved the idea when COVID hit. “The pandemic added a lot of uncertainty,” she said, “but hearteningly the community pulled up their yogi boot straps and pivoted right along with every adjustment we made, from Facebook Live, Zoom sessions, on the back lawn of Shanti on some mornings when it was 40 degrees, and in the studio with 8 x 10 barriers and only 8 people allowed.”
“I said to myself ‘If we can get through this, we can do anything’,” she added.
Many of Shanti’s students commute to the Hopkinton studio from Boston, so Houghtaling is pleased to offer them a more convenient option. A grand opening is planned; readers should follow Shanti Yoga on Facebook for further details.
