A new Powers of One Yoga and Fitness studio opening in Huntington will give local residents more opportunities to participate in a variety of yoga classes as well as personal training.

The studio, co-located in the same building with Cardinal Family Medicine at 225 Hauenstein Rd., will have an open house on Wednesday, Nov. 1, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Tours of the new location as well as class signups will be available. Classes start on Saturday, Nov. 4.

Owner Valerie Powers says she decided to start the second studio after she was referred to Cardinal Family Medicine by Dr. Derek Dyer, a friend who is also a yoga student.

“He just felt it would be a good collaboration between the medical office and the yoga and the wellness that we do in helping people,” she said. “We’re excited about moving into Huntington; we’re excited about the opportunities for the community as a whole. Our mission is just to impact one person at a time.”

Access to the Huntington studio is easier for those with mobility problems, on the ground level with less steps to navigate than the Roanoke location at 151-1/2 Main St.

All levels of yoga classes will be available at the Huntington location, plus “Strength and Length,” a class in which the first 30 minutes are dedicated to developing upper and lower body strength. The last 30 minutes will be dedicated to deep stretching and lengthening through strategic yoga postures. Small group fitness and personal training sessions will also be offered.

“We’ll be doing more body weight exercises, light dumbbell, resistance band and stability ball-type exercises,” Powers adds.

The Huntington Powers of One will offer classes on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wed-nesdays and Saturdays. Class times and more information can be found on the studio’s website, Powersofone.com or by calling 494-0222.
