Hometown Yoga invites community to stretch, breath and relax

Macon welcomes Hometown Yoga as the innovative community-approach style studio for yoga classes. The studio offers a wide variety of classes while bringing the Macon community together in a relaxed setting.

Offering an extensive variety and number of classes, Hometown Yoga is like no other yoga studio around. It not only allows participants to gain the benefits from yoga sessions, both physical and mental, but also to create a familiarity and build community among its members.

Co-founders Rachel Gerrity and Ashley Dunwoody, Macon natives, established the Hometown Yoga studio in Macon in the hopes of creating “a community for all the people who we had met through previous classes,” said Gerrity.

“We wanted to make yoga accessible and attractive to all people: mommy-and-me yoga and yoga for all ages, including kids,” she said.

From “Beginner’s Yoga” to “Deep Stretch” to “Yoga Boot Camp,” Hometown Yoga seems to really have a class for everyone. With a wide variety of classes, the studio can offer something to yoga students of all ages and all levels of experience.

“We are really making yoga fun and accessible for all people,” Gerrity said. She continued by saying that Hometown Yoga offers a number of “gentle, deep stretching classes, a yoga body boot camp, children classes, Kundalini classes [and more.]”

Additionally, Hometown Yoga features heated yoga. Heated yoga, when the studio room is heated to different temperature levels reaching 80 or above, is proven to relax muscles more, thereby increasing flexibility.

Gerrity said that the heated yoga style “opens up your muscles to get into those poses that normally are difficult.

“We offer a lot of hot classes, or classes that are performed in a heated room,” said Gerrity. The heat is also proven to detox “your system by helping flush toxins from the body and skin,” allowing you to feel more energized, according to the Hometown Yoga website.

Yoga classes are “a great way to get in shape and to relax you in a mind-body experience,” said Gerrity. She added that the classes offered at Hometown Yoga are designed to be an hour where you can feel relaxed and rejuvenated.

The studio features guest teachers and classes, giveaways and discount classes all on their Facebook page, Hometown Yoga. The studio even allows you to hold a yoga party by contacting the office.

Hometown Yoga offers single class prices, introductory packages, class cards (in 5 or 10), monthly classes with unlimited access, and many more deals and membership options.

The best part about the Hometown Yoga studio is that for Mercer University and other colleges, they feature a student discount of only $12 for a single class.
