A new yoga and wellness center is opening on October 1 in Essex! Lake Champlain Yoga & Wellness (LCY&W) will open on Main Street at the former Live Well location. It will be a local haven offering Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Acupuncture, Massage, and Organic Facials.
“After two wonderful years as Live Well, we thank the entire community for their support as we now rename and expand into Lake Champlain Yoga & Wellness,” said Michelle Maron, who began Lake Champlain Yoga Arts five years ago. “Our wellness mentors include Cache Hartzell, Will Hartzell, Robin Gucker and a host of other qualified wellness professionals.”
On Saturday, October 5 from 6 – 8PM there will be an Opening Party to celebrate, showcase new changes to the space, introduce the practitioners, and present the new Weekly Yoga schedule and programs like Kids’ Yoga. Everyone is welcome to attend!
About Yoga and Health
Essex town supervisor Sharon Boisen noted that, “Lake Champlain Yoga & Wellness is a tremendous asset to our community. For residents and visitors to have this access to such talented professionals assisting to improve their health and wellness is extraordinary. It is important that we have many businesses and professionals serving everyone’s health care needs year round. And it is especially nice in the winter when we see so many people in town for the fabulous Weekly Yoga Classes and other offerings.”
Yoga is an increasingly popular practice using breath, simple meditation and the movement of the body to improve health and wellness. Studies show that yoga reduces high blood pressure, increases strength, enhances balance, and improves back pain. Acupuncture is the practice of inserting thin needles into the body at specific points to relieve pain and treat illnesses. It has its origin in traditional Chinese medicine and has been endorsed by the United States National Institute of Health and the World Health Organization.
