On January 1, two separate yoga studios will come together in one space.  Mahatma Yoga Studio will open a Vinyasa studio within the converted barn space, presently a home to Tenth Gate Yoga Studio at 1046 East Main Road, Portsmouth.


Mahatma will offer its own brand of Vinyasa flow based classes. Heated, Slow Flow, non-heated, and hybrid classes of exploratory movement will be on the regular schedule.

Shannon Walker, the founder of Mahatma Yoga Studio, has been practicing yoga for over a decade and teaching for five years. She offers a strong, steady  practice through the guidance of her teachers Raghunath Cappo and Theresa Murphy. See the full schedule and mission at
www.mahatmayogastudio.com.

Tenth Gate Yoga will continue to specialize in Kundalini, Yin, Restorative and Hatha Yoga as well as meditation in their beautiful loft studio. Reinette Fournier and Thomas Speare, founders of Tenth Gate, opened the studio in 2008.

Both studios are having an Open House, post-plunge, on January 1 from 1-4. All afternoon, there will be delicious food by local chef Jess Patricio, live music, mind/body raffle prizes, and tarot card readings. Free classes are offered all weekend at Mahatma and Friday & Saturday at Tenth Gate.
