Only days after Yogawood ended its 2 1/2-year run in Riverton, its replacement, YogaTree, will hold its grand opening this weekend.
Anxious Yogawood fans won't need to wait long for their next fix, as the popular yoga studio's replacement, YogaTree, is set to open this weekend. Yogawood owner Beth Filla announced in November plans to close the Riverton location and focus on Yogawood’s other location in Collingswood. Yogawood held its last class last week. YogaTree owner Lynn Horan, a former student and teacher at Yogawood, said she's excited to launch the new business and has planned two open houses for this weekend: the first from 12-4 p.m. Saturday, April 6, and another from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, April 7. As part of her preparations for opening YogaTree, Horan solicited ideas for new programs from the community and got a strong response, which she described as "…

Lynn Horan will take over for current owner Beth Filla in April.
Yogawood in Riverton will close by the end of next month, but a Cinnaminson woman will take the spot over by the beginning of April. Lynn Horan, a yoga instructor and student at Yogawood, will be the new owner. “I just felt like it’s so wonderful there and in a great community and I wanted to see it continue,” Horan said. Current owner Beth Filla announced in November plans to close the Riverton location and focus on the other studio’s location in Collingswood. Horan stepped in shortly after. “I’m going to give it a swing,” she said. The longtime Cinnaminson resident and mother of Catherine, 24, and Brendan, 23, spent a few years in Chicago recently but after moving back, she joined Yogawood last year to practice and teach. “It’s a …

Yogawood, the popular yoga studio in downtown Riverton on the corner of Howard and Main streets, is set to close in March 2013. Yogawood owner Beth Filla sent this email over the weekend. Stay tuned for a full story on the closing. A couple of months back, classes at Yogawood were focused on the first Yoga Sutra: Attah Yoga Nushasanam. There are a lot of ways to translate that, like “the state of yoga is found in the present moment,” or “the practice of yoga begins now.” We practice to improve our ability to be present, to learn from past actions, and to make future choices based on our clearest intentions. I’m glad we share in this practice, always, but especially at times like this, when its lessons are so applicable to “real life.” I’…

Yvonne Chen wanted to decorate the studio's bare windows and people in town are talking.
Yvonne Chen wouldn’t call herself an artist, but people who drive by Yogawood in Riverton might beg to differ. Chen is the driving force behind Yogawood’s now locally famous window displays—drawing much attention and many compliments from people downtown, said one yoga teacher. “It surprises me,” Chen, of Merchantville, said of the attention. “It’s just gotten a really positive response.” Last year, Chen—a student and sometimes substitute at Yogawood—was talking to the studio’s owner Beth Filla about the windows. “What if during the holiday season, we can come up with some neat-looking displays?” she remembers suggesting. So, Chen went with a fall theme for the first window display, onto a Christmas theme in December and a love theme for …

This Sunday, unload your unwanted apparel, come home with some that's new to you, and support a great cause all at once.
Most transactions come with a wee bit of waste, or as economists would call it, "market inefficiencies." In a retail setting, this includes spillage (theft), excess inventory that gets dumped—and even the unproductive time a clerk spends checking Facebook. It's all built in to the price of the good, but it means you as the customer are paying a little bit extra to compensate for those inefficiencies. But a women's clothing swap soon to be held in Riverton is challenging that notion. Main Street's Yogawood hosts the event this Sunday between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Bring at least five pieces of clothing, shoes or accessories, drop them off at their appropriate areas and then start your (free) shopping! Leave with as many items as you choose. The…
