If, like us, you’ve walked past Obataimu’s Kala Ghoda storefront to find it all boarded up, don’t despair. The space will re-open next week in a new avatar, transforming into a yoga studio for the summer, all the way up to September.
Led by Hema Nagpal, a yoga teacher certified by the Kaivalyadan Institute of Yoga, the studio will offer up to three classes a day, including those in Yoga Nidra, Hatha Yoga and Iyenger + meditation.
“We’ve been working with Hema for over a year and really love her,” explains Noorie Sadarangani, one of the partners at Obataimu. “She has a ton of experience with all kinds of yoga, and mixes them in a unique way. She’s also a certified Ayurvedic massage therapist.”
In setting up Yogataimu, Noorie and her partner Prerna Saraff have emptied out the studio completely, replacing soft t-shirts and an army of sewing machines with matching yoga mats, polished, three-level floors and long curtains on the storefront. There will be no more than 10 people to a class.
Classes can be bought in packs of ten, or as a single drop in. The best part: Yogataimu is offering a free trial for friends and BPB readers (!) on Sunday, April 15th, in Vinyasa Krama + meditation (10 am to 11:15 am) and Haatha + Vinyasa + corrective (Mysore Style) + meditation (11:30 am to 12:45 am).
See you there!
