Cambridge Square Yoga Studio Opens In Ooltewah

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

Beyoga has officially opened its doors and rolled out its mats in its newly designed and constructed studio located in Cambridge Square, a mixed-use community being developed by Barrier Properties in Ooltewah. Cambridge Square is located at the corner of Ooltewah-Georgetown Road and Lee Highway. 

Beyoga is owned and operated by local entrepreneurs and yoga instructors, Amanda Carmichael and Amy Mace. Since announcing their plans to open the studio in July 2013, the two have worked closely with the Barrier Properties design team to create a welcoming space for yoga practitioners in the greater Ooltewah market. “It has been a dream of ours to create a space for yoga and community,” said Ms. Carmichael. “We are very glad to share the practice with many new and seasoned practitioners and we look forward to a fun and healthy 2014!” 

Presently beyoga is offering a grand opening special of 12 days of consecutive yoga for $12.00. The studio schedule boasts 40 classes per week, and also offers onsite childcare and classes designed specifically for children. Beyoga will open its smoothie bar on December 16 and on Saturday, December 21, beyoga will host a grand opening celebration and open house at which Ms. Mace and Ms. Carmichael will offer free yoga throughout the day as well as giveaways, incentives and discounts on classes. 

“We are very proud to have an official fitness offering at Cambridge Square,” said Jim Cheney, marketing director for Barrier Properties. “We anticipate that beyoga will become a very popular spot within the community and we wish Amanda and Amy the very best of luck.” Beyoga is located on the public square at Cambridge Square, with a 2500 square-foot, second story space — accessible by stair or elevator —  overlooking the green. The space includes two studios, a retail boutique offering clothing and gifts, an enclosed and monitored childcare playroom available for every class, showers, an outdoor balcony for relaxing after class and a smoothie bar with smoothies, fresh juices and all-natural snacks. Yoga practitioners will have access to a comprehensive scope of yoga activities that will include heated power vinyasa, pre- and post-natal classes, yoga for kids, and restorative yin classes.
