Powerflow Yoga, the heated, Vinyasa-style yoga studio with locations in Chatham and Livingston, officially opened for business in its new Morristown location on Tuesday, Oct. 9 at the Shops on the Green.
Morristown Mayor Timothy Dougherty joined Powerflow Yoga owner Jerry LePore and Roseland Property Company Vice President of Development Debra Tantleff to cut the ribbon on the new business, located at 40 Market Street on the ground floor of The Metropolitan at 40 Park. Mayor Dougherty said businesses like Powerflow Yoga contribute to the vitality of Morristown’s downtown and the overall quality of life Morristown residents enjoy.
“We are happy to welcome Powerflow Yoga to our community,” Mayor Dougherty said. “It is a great addition to our downtown.”
Officials from the developers of the Shops on the Green and members of the public and business community came to welcome Powerflow Yoga to the neighborhood, tour the facility and enjoy refreshments and giveaways. Guests also had the opportunity to learn more about the cleansing, detoxifying experience of yoga in a 98-degree studio.
Mr. LePore said he was happy to find an ideal, 2,000 square-foot space for his studio right in the heart of Morristown and looks forward to welcoming more local customers.
“We’re excited to bring Powerflow Yoga to Morristown,” said Mr. LePore. “Morristown has been on my radar for a couple of years as we’ve had a growing number of Morristown residents coming to our studio in Chatham. We did some research and saw that Morristown offered a large customer base for us, including a budding population of young professionals. There is a lot of growth and development going on in town and the time to open up couldn’t be any better.”
The Shops on the Green anchors the 76-unit 40 Park luxury condominium building and the 130-unit Metropolitan at 40 Park rental building. The retail is highly visible and easily accessible from Market Street, the Morristown Green and the 40 Park public piazza which leads to an enclosed public parking garage. Other tenants currently include Roots Steak House, Urban Table, Starbucks, Qdoba Mexican Grill and the AT&T Store.
“With a respected reputation and strong local following, Powerflow Yoga is an excellent addition to downtown Morristown and the Shops on the Green,” Ms. Tantleff said. “They’ll be able to benefit from the extensive residential base and abundant daytime workforce prevalent in downtown Morristown, while also complementing the well-rounded retail line-up we’ve assembled here.”
Powerflow Yoga brings a unique style of yoga to Morristown that accommodates skill levels ranging from beginner to advanced. Most classes are taught in a heated environment -- with temperatures reaching up to 98 degrees -- which accelerates the opening of the pores externally. Classes are held throughout the day, from morning to evening, to allow people with varying schedules to participate. Styles that incorporate the Vinyasa flow, such as Jivamukti, Anusara and Ashtanga, are included. There are also classes that focus on meditation and relaxation, to offer a balance to the vigorous, full-body workout the Vinyasa style provides.
