Holly Purdy and Suzy Argon want to share their love of yoga with others.

“The physical practice is just one branch of it,” Argon says. “It’s about building a connection no matter what — about having open arms for those who are happy or sad. We had a vision to create a community where you could come as you are and not as you think you should be.”

Last week they opened Love Yoga on Central Avenue upstairs from Wild Coffee Company. Both had been practicing yoga for several years and teaching it, but then this winter they met for the first time and connected deciding to partner together.

Aragon was going through a divorce and finishing up nursing school when she found yoga.

“It was a respite for me,” she said.

Purdy says practicing yoga is about getting the physical and emotion toxins to leave your body.

“Afterwards it’s pure bliss,” she said. “I feel completely brand new and cleansed.”

Love Yoga offers hot yoga classes where the room is heated to 85 degrees or 95 degrees Fahrenheit. Those classes include power flow, yoga Sculpt, which is power yoga with weights, and power barre, which they describe as a total body workout fusion of yoga, pilates, cardio and light weights.

Non-heated offerings include yin, teen and kids yoga, and mommy ‘n’ me yoga.

“We want to teach yoga to young people and teens,” Purdy said. “We want to teach them to grow up to be healthy people.”
