Got your knickers in a knot? Perhaps Area Yoga Center can help. The popular Carroll Gardens studio and spa is opening a second destination in Brooklyn Heights at 144 Montague Street, between Henry and Clinton streets. Owner Loretta Gendville says the new store is scheduled to open some time in April.
Area Yoga was founded in 2000 by Gendville as a hatha and vinyasa yoga studio, with a focus on balance, strength, awareness and relaxation. Alongside open level and basics classes, it offers restorative, prenatal, power, yin, intermediate/advanced and Forrest yoga. The new location—on the second floor above Bentleys shoes, in the former location of Spring Thyme spa—will also have a treatment room for organic facials and massages.
We’re no yoga expert, but a search of such studios in 11201 reveals little shortage of destinations to wring out stress balls: The Area studio joins Yoga People, 160 Montague Street and Bikram Yoga, 106 Montague, as well as MalaYoga, 162 Court Street; Dahn Yoga, 130 Clinton Street; and Abhaya Yoga, 10 Jay Street.
Area’s other store is at 389 Court Street in Carroll Gardens. Read a piece in The New York Times that includes the studio here.
