New Yoga + Fitness Concept
BODEGA Fitness Boutique at 1241 Canton Street invite the community to celebrate their official Ribbon Cutting ceremony on January 23 at Noon.
Two young entrepreneurs chose to launch their business in the heart of historic downtown Roswell, right on Canton Street.
WHEN OUR BODIES, MINDS AND SPIRITS are in sync, life seems a little easier, lighter, right? We are relaxed, calm, at peace and connected. Jose Ramos and Nicole Valle live this way by practicing yoga, meditation and having fitness routines. These two young entrepreneurs opened BODEGA Fitness Boutique last month on Canton Street because they felt passionate about helping others discover the benefits of balanced living.
They made a business plan, settled on a great location in a re-imagined commercial garage in the heart of historic downtown Roswell, and are now busily offering a variety of classes to our community. Today, BODEGA is basically a “one-stop shop” destination for yoga, meditation, and functional high-intensity interval training (HIIT) group classes. Inside we find a deliberate emphasis on good vibes, good health and whole-person wellness, and no traces of negativity or harsh motivational techniques.
Yoga uses breathing techniques, exercise and meditation to improve health and happiness. As yoga is a science, there is no dogma or belief system attached to it. Yoga simply tells us to do a certain practice and then to feel the effect of that practice, e.g. if we breathe slowly in a relaxed manner we will slow our heart rate.
Yoga practices include posture (asana), breathing (pranayama), control of subtle forces (mudra and bandha), cleansing the body-mind (shat karma), visualizations, chanting of mantras, and many forms of meditation. In the West, yoga consists primarily of stretching exercises to increase flexibility, relax the body, build strength and coordination and achieve balance.
BODEGA offers hourlong wake-up yoga sessions in the morning and candle-lit yoga sessions in the evening. These sessions are typically focused on either core strength or flow state.
Meditation is a precise technique for attaining a state of consciousness - while awake - which clears and focuses the mind, relaxes the body and focuses us inward rather than on externals. Instructors at BODEGA are trained to quell excessive thoughts and distractions, thus opening the heart, using meditation techniques and overall positivity. This reflects on their Instagram page, full of happy faces and encouraging words. (@bodega.fitness.boutique)
Functional and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) is offered in group classes led by passionate and encouraging instructors. During these 45 minutes of cardio, we alternate between high-intensity workouts and low-intensity recovery periods. This type of exercise is very beneficial to the heart and for improving metabolism. The intensity is tough for some, but instructors help us push through to achieve the fantastic state of satisfaction from each and every class.
A full schedule of class times can be found on a free smartphone app called MINDBODY, where anyone can sign up easily online at just $25 per class. Individual and private training sessions are also available for those of us who learn best one-on-one.
BODEGA instructors are equipped to meet us wherever we are on our wellness journeys and invite us to work at any pace. Whether we are experienced yogis or first-timers, new or seasoned at meditation, returning to cardio or continuing a fitness program, the team is serious about customizing personalized programs, which have been proven to be the most beneficial.
