Check out our press release for our new studio space in Grayling, plus our Open House on September 6th!
AuSable Dance Center (ADC) in downtown Grayling has completed a substantial remodel of a large, second studio space in their building, which will be used for not only dance classes, but yoga classes as well.
ADC has partnered with Higgins Lake based Stone Turtle Yoga to offer a full schedule of yoga classes in this new studio space, which has a new wood floor, a large selection of new yoga mats and props for complimentary use, and a clean, peaceful, ambiance.
“We are incredibly excited to partner with ADC, and put this new space to use for our growing yoga community in Grayling and surrounding areas,” says Mariah Frye Colie, owner of Stone Turtle Yoga who, along with Lexi Bondar, a Grayling native, teach 10 classes per week between Grayling and Higgins Lake.
“The more opportunities for people in northern Michigan to enhance their health and wellness, the better.”
A variety of yoga classes will be taught at ADC this fall and winter, including high-intensity Core Yoga, beginner-friendly Hatha Yoga, and Hot Yoga for those who want a real detoxifying workout.
There will also be two Kids Yoga classes per week, one for kids ages 6-9, and the other for ages 10+.
The new studio will also allow for an expanded youth dance schedule, which will accommodate the growing demand for the highly accomplished dance instruction offered by ADC.
“This expansion means smaller class sizes, more offerings and happier students,” says Chelsea Partello, who co-owns ADC with head dance instructor, Felicia Phillips. “Our goal is to have something to offer everyone who walks though those doors, children or adult. Partnering with Stone Turtle Yoga is a huge step in that direction.”
To welcome the community to this new space, a New Studio Open House will take place on Saturday, September 6th from 10:00am-3:00pm. During this time, the public is invited to stop by and see the space, and also participate in one of the many free events throughout the day:
10:00am – 11:00am: FREE Community Yoga Class
11:15am – 12:00pm: Tea and Yoga Philosophy Chat
12:15pm – 1:00pm: FREE Kids Yoga Class
1:00pm – 1:45pm: FREE Kids Competitive Dance Workshop
