NoDa Yoga owner Jillian Longsworth has long desired to bring accessible yoga to as many people as she can. Now, she will bring it to Oakhurst.


The cozy second-story studio above Cabo Fish Taco is expanding, opening a second location in January, Longsworth told CharlotteFive in an exclusive interview.


NoDa Yoga Oakhurst will have 2,000 square feet on the corner of a yet-to-be-built section of the Oakhurst on Monroe shopping center, with Swirl bakery nearby. The new location will be large enough to hold two studios, allowing additional classes, more workshops and a larger teacher training space. The studio will have a separate area dedicated to massage or reiki.



ACCESSIBILITY IS IMPORTANT


One of the most important features of the new studio is that it will be accessible to all, Longsworth said. NoDa Yoga’s original location requires climbing a set of metal stairs alongside the building. The expanded space will be at ground level.

“I had been wanting to open up a bigger space, a ground-floor space, for many years just because of the styles of yoga that we were offering — we needed more accessibility,” she said.
