Our Space Yoga
just opened in Williamston
in January, owner Cherie Ferro isn’t a new face in the local yoga scene. Ferro, who is certified by the Temple of Kriya Yoga in Chicago and registered with Yoga Alliance has taught yoga in the Greater Lansing area for more than 16 years.
“I first did yoga in seventh grade in Southern California and remember that it was the first time I actually enjoyed my P.E. class,” says Ferro. “Eventually, I returned to yoga, and over time decided that I wanted to teach it, to share that good feeling with others.”
Ferro chose Williamston as the home of her new 800 square foot studio on North Williamston Road because of the community’s business-friendly atmosphere, and so she could be centrally located to her existing clients in from such cities as Lansing, Okemos, Holt, Webberville, Bath, and Owosso.
“What makes the studio unique,” says Ferro, “and why I chose to name it Our Space Yoga, is the relaxed, communal feeling my students and I have created here.”
The studio also includes a rope wall, a feature that allows students to hang from and stretch using anchored ropes. Ferro makes her space available for rent by other yoga instructors. She has future plans to develop “"A Day in Williamston" class, during which the class would do morning yoga, have lunch in Williamston, do some shopping, and then return to the studio for additional yoga and relaxation.
