Recently, my dear friends Eric and Denise Antonini with You & The Mat yoga expanded their community and find themselves in the East Bay transforming Piedmont Yoga into their own unique offering. Everything in life is always changing and such is the case with Piedmont Yoga. During the transition, a farewell event was hosted to honor the original Piedmont Yoga founders, Rodney Yee and Richard Rosen, which I had the pleasure of being a part of. The event was one full of emotion and gratitude from the community, which expressed it’s deep appreciation for the studio’s many years of upstanding commitment to bringing an incredible yoga experience to the Piedmont area.
I am excited to have my friends, Eric and Denise closer and to be a part of their growing dynamic community. In anticipation of the studios’ Grand Opening this Saturday, October 10th, I had the pleasure of working with renowned Yoga instructors Annie Carpenter and Richard Rosen in the new studio.
As part of their Grand Opening, You & The Mat: Oakland will be offering free classes all day, beginning at 8:30am with a class led by instructor Stacey Lee.
It has been a true pleasure being a part of this experience and I look forward to Saturday’s Grand Opening. Congratulations Eric and Denise!
