Spiritual Gypsy Yoga studio opens in dowtown Seymour

SEYMOUR >> A new yoga studio located downtown will be holding a grand opening ceremony Thursday, July 9, according to a release from the Office of the First Selectmen.

Spiritual Gypsy Yoga, 18 Bank St., is in the recently renovated Beaches Block building. The ceremony starts at 3 p.m. The public is invited to check out the facilities, share a champagne toast and enter to win free yoga lessons and other prizes.

Andrea Benson, a certified yoga teacher whose practice of yoga began 28 years ago, founded the studio. Benson was certified as an instructor in 2009. She teaches Hatha yoga, a form that emphasizes balance and uniting opposites by focusing the attention on breathing to become more present. She says she wants her studio to be “a welcoming peaceful sanctuary where your practice will have the opportunity to grow,” according to the release.

“I am reaching out to meet the people of Seymour and the surrounding area. I am so blessed to be a part of the community and I look forward to spending a long time here. Please come and take a look at your new yoga studio,” Benson said in the release.

First Selectman Kurt Miller is expected to attend and said, in the release, “I’m really excited and encouraged by the diversity of new businesses coming into downtown Seymour. We’re very excited for the opening of Spiritual Gypsy Yoga and we’re pleased to welcome Andrea to the community.”

This information was provided in a press release from the Office of the First Selectmen.
