In October, Roseway neighbor Ingrid Scott-Singley opened the Roseway Yoga and Movement studio in the long-vacant building at 6529 N.E. Sandy Blvd.
“I have been practicing yoga and somatic movement for over a decade,” said Scott-Singley. “I was born with club feet and hip dysplasia and these movement practices have given me tools to stay strong and centered. The therapeutic benefits of this type of work are profoundly life-changing and accessible to every person regardless of age or experience.”
“I have lived in the neighborhood for several years and believed it was time to have a well rounded yoga studio in our very own neighborhood,” she added. “The building had been vacant for many years before we moved in. It was recently purchased by Halo Properties and the new building owner is working on improvements and will be leasing the rest of the vacant building space.”
“I opened the studio with a vision of community and very little to invest,” said Scott-Singley. “I am proud of how it has grown in the first few months. This is a truly authentic grassroots-grown business and our neighborhood students have had wonderful things to say about the studio.”
Several of the studio’s teachers are also Roseway residents. A diverse offering of classes includes Ashtanga Vinyasa with Alyssa Friedman, Hatha Flow with Kelcy King, Restorative Yoga with Ally Austin, Baby and Tribe Yoga with Tabitha Ouellette Hufnagel and Mary Wagstaff, Mid-day Vinyasa with Jamie Aaronson and Pilates with Meghan Ash. Irving Chung teaches Tai Chi Chuan and Meditation Study.
On the first Saturday of every month, Dr. Wahji Kasten and Dr. Heather Friedman offer pop-up B-12 vitamin injections, and community acupuncture is available on the first and third Sunday of every month. The studio also houses wellness practitioners specializing in holistic-health coaching, neuromuscular therapy, counseling, hypnotherapy and personalized yoga. Plans are underway for a variety of workshops from diaper free parenting to yoga and chakra balancing.
“The space is conveniently located, warm and inviting. I encourage our neighbors to become a part of this new community space and find a common ground through practice, movement, family and laughter. It is a place for all to gather that aims to enrich our neighborhood for years to come,” said Scott-Singley.
