Serenity Yoga Studio Moves to New Location in Bedford


Serenity Yoga recently moved from an old house at 18 North Road to the shopping center at 363 Great Road. I recently spoke with the director, Toni Bradley. According to Toni, Serenity Yoga had been at 18 North Road for over 11 years. They liked the location, but wanted a space where they could have larger classes. The new location is on the second floor in the space previously occupied by Adecco Employment Services
 
The new location is on the second floor right next to Bedford Chiropractic.

With the larger space, Serenity Yoga was able to increase the maximum size of their classes from 11 to 20 people. Along with the larger class size, they have increased the number of different classes to 16 per week and are considering adding Yoga classes for kids as well as a men's only class.


Serenity Yoga is a Kripalu Affiliated Studio, which is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to promoting the art and science of yoga and is located in Stockbridge MA. Out of the 10 Teachers at Serenity Yoga, 8 have trained and been certified at the Kripalu School of Yoga with 4 to the highest level.  

 
Unlike the old location, the new space features wooden floors. Toni mentioned that they placed carpeting under the floor to soften it and also can provide 2 inch thick mats if desired. Toni has mentioned that most of her students have been pleased with the new location. In fact right next door is Bedford Chiropractic who has been referring some of it's patients to Serenity Yoga for several years.


Serenity Yoga hopes to add their name to this sign. Due to zoning regulations, the location and type of sign is grandfathered at this location. This means if the sign needs to be removed for any reason (even for repair) it may not be placed back. The sign does not currently work and attempts are being made to repair it without removing it.
