New yoga studio to open in November

Another opportunity for students to sweat before class is on its way, as a new Core Power Yoga is scheduled to move into Stadium Village this fall. The new facility will be located above the Tea Garden on the second floor of the Stadium Village Mall. Core Power will fill the now vacant Jefferson at Berry office and is expected to open in November. The Stadium Village studio will be the eighth Core Power in the metro area and will offer a number of classes. âÄúItâÄôs a great little workout,âÄù manager Tory Schaefer said of the Vinyasa flow yoga practiced at the studio. Different classes will be offered in varying temperatures. The average classes start between 80 and 85 degrees, moderate levels are set at 95 degrees and some hot yoga classes turn it up to between 100 and 105 degrees, Schaefer said. In addition to power yoga, Core Power will offer sculpt classes with weights for full-body toning, Schaefer said. âÄúItâÄôs just a fun place for people to come chill and work out and get what they need out of it,âÄù he said. The new facility will be just another addition to the revamped Stadium Village layout. âÄúItâÄôs been a transitional decade for the village,âÄù Campus Pizza owner Jim Rosvold said. Rosvold, the former president of the Stadium Village Commercial Association , said heâÄôs excited to see a variety of businesses moving in. âÄúItâÄôd be nice to see some other establishments complement the restaurants of Stadium Village,âÄù Rosvold said. Current association President Nancy Rose Pribyl also said she thinks the new yoga studio will contribute to the community. âÄúI think we do a good job of welcoming new places,âÄù Rose Pribyl said. Rose Pribyl, who has worked for Dinnaken Properties for 16 years, said both Dinnaken House and Argyle House have workout facilities, but she thinks Core Power can be successful. Along with Core Power, other new businesses are headed to Stadium Village. With Campus Crossroads on the way, a CVS drug store and other retail stores will add to the plethora of restaurants in the area. Over the 18 and a half years Rosvold has worked in Stadium Village, he said he has seen businesses adapt to the UniversityâÄôs attempt to be less of a commuter campus. He said the University started pushing more students to live on campus about 10 years ago. With more students around campus, a higher demand for business arises. âÄúWhile IâÄôm not the largest fan of national retailers coming in âĦ people are realizing thereâÄôs a place to do business here,âÄù Rosvold said. âÄúThis is a good, vibrant business community.âÄù But new businesses cannot be assured of continued success. Rose Pribyl said since the population around campus changes every five years or so, new students bring new demands. Stadium Village is adapting, she said.
