Natural Awakenings Atlanta

New Yoga Studio Opens in Druid Hills

Last month, The Yoga Hive yoga studio opened its doors in the Toco Hills Shopping Center at 2867-C North Druid Hills Road NE in Atlanta.

Co-founders Lori Rissetto and Rebecca Galla-Jones began envisioning their yoga community, signed a lease and built out a space long before the unexpected disruption of the coronavirus pandemic. Undaunted, they maintained an attitude of trust as they ventured into studio ownership while adapting to an unprecedented business environment, familiarizing themselves with new studio protocols and formulating online offerings to meet the needs of the new normal.

Both co-founders have been teaching and practicing for almost 20 years and have practiced multiple styles and modalities.

Rissetto and Galla-Jones principally teach an intentional vinyasa-style yoga, which is driven by the breath and honors tradition and the subtle inner practices. The name “Yoga Hive” emerged from their desire to honor connection, nourishment, support and unity. The studio is founded on core values of nurturing community, promoting well-being and advocating for inclusion.

In addition to traditional classes—such as power flow, restorative and yin—they plan to offer classes for gender-neutral students, curvy bodies and women only.

To preserve safety for the community during the pandemic, class sizes are limited, mats are spaced more than six feet apart, temperatures are taken at entry, and masks are required when entering and exiting the studio and while transitioning to the mat.
