With a quiet fountain bubbling in the corner and a few more adornments, the MyMindEmbody studio will offer those interested in either pilates or yoga a peaceful place outside of the gym at Embody Fitness to enjoy these classes.

The idea for the studio was developed by Embody general manager Katie Paris who wanted a relaxing space for the classes as well as a larger space.

When we were first at the Kingwood Athletic Club, the pilates and yoga classes were in a very small area, so when we decided to start hosting these classes, we all wanted to hold them in its own space, Paris said.

Embody, which is located at 1574 Kingwood Drive, is celebrating the opening of the new studio May 12 with pilates and yoga class demonstrations being held intermittently throughout the event which runs from 9 a.m. until noon.

The MyMindEmbody studio features several reformer pilates machines which allow for participants to go through a range of different exercises.

The studio also has a spacious area in front of the reformer pilates machines to allow for numerous mats for the yoga class. The studio will also offer a hot yoga class during the week.

A lot of the people who take yoga and pilates class are not typically gym people. With the new studio, those who do not like the gym atmosphere or are looking to relax with these classes will have a quiet space and do not have to step in the gym if they do not want to, Jo Elaine Philips with Embody said.

There are still a few additions Embody is working to put together before the grand opening including a couple of other pieces of furniture and draperies which will hang from the ceiling to add to the zen feeling of the MyMindEmbody studio.

The pilates classes are taught by instructors Sandy Brady and Rhoni Marple Kirshner while Carol Lloyd will teach yoga.

We are very excited to start our classes in the studio and hope more people will come to check out our classes and see what all we have to offer, Paris added.
