Newport Yoga

What’sUpNewp was the first to bring you the news on August 30th when we shared that Thames Street Yoga and Long Time Sun Apparel were moving in together.

Here’s an update on the collaboration;

Thames Street Yoga, a vinyasa yoga studio on lower Thames and Long Time Sun a yoga lifestyle boutique located just off of Brick Market will form a unique collaboration that will house both entities under one roof. 

Effective November 1st, Thames Street Yoga will move into the 198 Thames Street home of Long Time Sun.  By morning and night, the space will be transformed into a sun drenched and expansive yoga studio, afternoon it once again becomes a yoga boutique.

“We’re super excited about the opportunity to offer a full schedule of yoga classes in our downtown space,” said boutique owner Kyla Maher. “This collaboration allows us to continue to do what we individually do best, but to offer the ease and convenience of one location for the Newport yoga community.”

“The opportunity to collaborate with Kyla was just too good to pass up,” said yoga studio owner, Patti Doyle. “I’m excited about the joining together of our two communities as well as the fact that we will make the highest use of a convenient and beautiful downtown space.” Students may park free of charge in the Mary Street parking lot which leads to the back entrance of the studio/boutique.

To celebrate the collaboration, Thames Street Yoga will host a free, live music yoga class on Friday, October 30th from 5:30 – 7 pm led by Patti Doyle, and singer Andi Flax, followed by a gong bath by Kyla Maher. A welcome party, which coincides with the first anniversary of Long Time Sun, will commence at 7 pm. Reservations for the class are required and may be made at
