CUMMING, Ga. — A new yoga studio at Vickery Village is offering something you won’t find everywhere - $5 classes. The community classes as they’re called are offered once a week by teachers in training, and a portion of the proceeds goes to a local charity. This month’s charity is Send Relief.

Sarah Trulove, the owner of Village Yoga, has a bachelor’s degree in social work and said many of the local non-profits are close to her heart. Shortly after opening the studio last August, she started reaching out to the organizations and now picks a new one every couple of months.

Trulove said it’s a win for everyone involved, because she’s able to offer affordable classes to the community, give new teachers an opportunity to practice, and raise funds for charity. She’s also an advocate of yoga and believes everyone should give it a try.

“We have a saying in yoga. It’s for everyone and every body. You’re never too young or too old or too weak to get started, and you don’t have to touch your toes in order to get started,” Trulove said. “Yoga is really great at building up strength especially in your core which holds up your back and allows you to do more things functionally in your daily life. It’s also really great for your mind. It really gives you an opportunity to let everything else go in life and just focus on yourself and your breath and your movement.”

The community classes are currently offered on Sundays from 4 to 5 P.M. However, starting March 15th, the classes will be offered on Fridays at 5:30 P.M. The community classes are donation-based (minimum of $5) and they are cash only.
