Radiant Yoga and Wellness Reopens, Restarts SUP Classes
“I cannot begin to express my gratitude for the support and engagement of this community,” says Aimee Pruitt, owner of Radiant Yoga and Wellness in Old Worthington. “The fact that we are able to reopen is a true testament to this community.”
Opening day featured sold out classes and very grateful teachers and students.
“The Radiant community is special, and it was so great to see everyone greeting each other with smiles and conversation as they enrolled her mats!” said teacher Laura Lampe.
Located in a former Masonic lodge erected in 1820, Worthington’s Radiant Yoga and Wellness has bright sunshine, warm wooden floors, and 19th century sash windows that really open.
“People have been very positive about both our wonderful space and commitment to safety.”
Abby Dorn and Laura Lampe, have returned to teach live classes. Shoma Jha will have classes and special activities for children and as well as teaching Vinyasa flows for adults.
All in-person classes require pre-registration, and in-person classes are limited to just 10 spots in the studio. Most classes will continue to be available online.
“If you are not ready to return to the studio, or feel ill, please continue to join us online,” said Pruitt.
Radiant Yoga and Wellness is planning a variety of workshops including special guest Cindy Kostecki “all the way from Texas!” Kostecki will lead a 3-hour mini-retreat on June 20th from 2 to 5 p.m. There are also workshops coming up from popular local teachers such as Liz Baldridge and Alissa Jackson. Students who enrolled in Jackson’s Urban Zen (UZ) workshop that was cancelled by the pandemic in 2020 may re-enroll in the June, 2021 Urban Zen workshop by contacting Aimee at Radiant; there is also an UZ workshop scheduled for August, 2021.
Radiant Yoga and Wellness was going strong as one of the premiere boutique-style yoga studios in Columbus before closing in 2020 due to COVID-19. Priutt had only recently taken over the second floor of the building to expand class capacity and offer other wellness services. “Who knew?” noted Pruitt, “That we would have to close for over a year after that!”
Their SUP (stand-up paddle board) yoga program has also started back up at Alum Creek. Classes will be Tuesdays June 29, then on July 6, 13, and 20. The classes do sell out and guests are encouraged to reserve early. All levels are welcome and modifications are given so all can participate.
Radiant Yoga and Wellness is located in the heart of Old Worthington at 634 High Street. Off street parking is available in the large lots used by the Worthington farmer’s market behind the Methodist church.
“I can’t believe it has been over a year since we have practiced together in our space!,” says Pruitt. “Welcome back everyone and thank you for being a caring community.”
