Yoga East Wellness Center To Open Second Studio At Cambridge Square

Thursday, April 23, 2015
Yoga East Wellness Center (Yoga East) will open a second location in Cambridge Square, a mixed-use community located at the corner of Ooltewah-Georgetown Road and Lee Hwy. in Ooltewah. Yoga East will be locating in what is now the 2500 square foot Beyoga Ooltewah studio. The proprietors of both studios worked together to facilitate the transition

"We would first like to thank Beyoga Ooltewah for being part of the Cambridge community," said Jim Cheney, Cambridge Square Marketing director." They were one of our first tenants and they have had a very positive impact on the community as a whole.
At the same time, we are excited that Yoga East will be taking over and appreciative that the two studios have worked together to make this transition smooth for the development as well as yoga practitioners in the greater Ooltewah area."

Officials said, "Yoga East, now five years-old, has a studio on Lifestyle Way, just off of Shallowford Road. It is owned and operated by Becky Byrns and offers a wide range of classes with some of Chattanooga's most well respected instructors." 

Ms. Byrns is a Yoga Alliance certified instructor with over 4,000 hours of teaching experience within a span of 7 years. She holds undergraduate degrees in both business and health and wellness. Ms. Byrns received her masters degree in kinesiology in 2010. She is certified as a Wellcoach, which specializes in life coaching in private and corporate settings. Ms. Byrns is also a Master Reiki practitioner. She has studied with such notable yoga instructors as Jimmy Barkan, Sadie Nardini and Kathryn Budig. 

"We are grateful to BeYoga and are inspired by their pioneering initiative in bringing yoga and barre instruction to such a delightful community,” said Ms. Byrns.  “Yoga East has a proven history of offering a wide variety of yoga classes that can accommodate beginners up to the most advanced practitioners, and everything in between.  It is with an attitude of joy and excitement that we bring our second location to the beautiful Cambridge Square development in Ooltewah."

For the Cambridge Square location, Ms. Byrns has partnered with Rachelle Pecovsky Jorge who owns (along with her husband and business partner Jamie Jorge) Mixed Up Cup, a multi-faceted yogurt and organic eatery which opened in Cambridge Square in the summer of 2014. Ms. Pecovsky Jorge recently retired from the National Women’s Football Association where she played running back for the D.C. Divas. She is also a professional personal chef, a former competitive gymnastics coach, and is certified in Barre Body Fitness class instruction. 

"We are excited to share our passion for health, wellness, and fitness through the modalities of yoga and barre classes that accommodate all levels and body types," said Ms. Pecovsky Jorge. "We are confident that existing and new students will find the right style of yoga to suit their individual needs: from stress relief and relaxation to challenging and strength building, we have it covered. Yoga East Ooltewah will strive to give our students the gift of being inspired by what their bodies can do, in a safe, fun, supportive, and creative environment." 

Officials said, "Yoga East is anticipated to begin daily operations of its studio in Mid-May. beyoga Ooltewah is working directly with Ms. Byrns and Ms. Pecovsky Jorge to transition all clients to ensure that there will be no disruption in previously scheduled classes. Details on Yoga East's schedule and class offering will be forthcoming."
