Bloomfield Hills based Karma Yoga plans to open a second a 3,600-square-foot space on Orchard Lake Road, between Maple and 14 Mile early next year.
Since 2003, Karma Yoga, founded and owned by Katherine Austin, has been in business in a 1,500-square-foot space beside Plum Market at Maple and Lahser roads. Austin has been looking for an additional larger space where she can run simultaneous classes, workshops, retreats, concerts, and offer additional services like bodywork and Ayurvedic and meditation consultations.
Karma Yoga is a very spiritual yoga studio, with classes starting at 4 a.m. every day (sadhana/practice) and offered through evening. The soft launch for Karma West will take place in the first quarter of 2015, with a formal grand opening in April. Austin plans to work with Be Free apparel boutique owner Val-Lanore S. Zaccagnini to do pop-up yoga classes between now and the opening to brand awareness.
