“This will be great!” says Linda McCart a student at former Grow Yoga in Grandview, “I have always seen so many classes on the Yoga On High schedule, now I can go!”

Last year, there was something less than a merger between Columbus’ oldest multi-purpose yoga studio, Yoga On High in the Short North, and Grow Yoga of Grandview. Last week, the former Grow Yoga owner, Holly Moretti, bowed out of Grow Yoga as a business owner. Until recently, students had to pay extra fees to go between the two studios. Now, Grow Yoga is officially a branch of Yoga On High, so students can go to both places on the same pass.

With it’s springy wood floors, full-moon lantern lights, and multiple high-mounted windows, Grow Yoga is one of the more pleasant yoga spaces in the Columbus area. It is also has a shower in one of the two bathrooms. As one YoHi receptionist said, “I just love the space at Grow Yoga, I am looking forward to visiting it often.”

McCart has taken yoga at Grow for years, but noted, “Sometimes there aren’t as many classes here, especially in the evening; I would look at the schedule and think, ‘I wish I could do that’ … now I can go to Yoga On High [in the Short North] without paying extra.”

Other Grow Yoga students were also happy about the change, too, and wished it had come earlier.

“Where I came from in Michigan, there was a huge Kundalini Yoga community,” said a very accomplished yogini, “I am really loving that I can go to Yoga On High for Kundalini now as I have been going someplace else for Kundalini and paying for it separately. Kundalini is so powerful, and now I don’t have to pay for classes outside my pass.”

Besides Holly Moretti, for years Grow Yoga had some of the most talented teachers in Columbus including Sally Walsh Roberts and Anne Weidinger who also teach at V-Power and Go Yoga respectively. Weidinger is a particularly sought-after leader of in-depth workshops that really help refine yoga techniques.

“Combining the two studios will be really good for our Ashtanga community,” she said.

Yoga On High is not changing any of the teachers or schedules as of publishing. Holly Moretti, former owner of Grow Yoga, will continue to teach there. New and current studio passes can be used at both Yoga on High locations now.

Summer specials are ongoing, Yoga on High – Grandview is located at 1780 W. Fifth Ave., Columbus, OH 43212. Find out more information at yogaonhigh.com/schedules/open-classes.
