Lift Yoga + Body Opens in Dunwoody

In October, Lift Yoga + Body wellness studio opened its second location at 1705 Mount Vernon Road, formerly the YogaWorks studio in Dunwoody. Saddened by the many closures resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, owner Lori Denton seized the opportunity to continue to serve the thriving community that has been practicing there for years.

Denton assumed ownership of Lift Yoga in Alpharetta from its founder, Kimberly Saunders, last June. She describes it as a “passion project” that she balances with her full-time corporate job. Since moving in, she has added some infrared heating and has reconfigured the reception area to be a “more welcoming space” for fellowship before and after classes.

Denton does not have any immediate changes planned for the Dunwoody location; she is committed to preserving continuity in the studio by keeping many former YogaWorks teachers and class styles. Both the Dunwoody and Alpharetta studios offer a variety of vinyasa yoga classes to serve many types of practitioners. Denton also anticipates that their 300-hour Teacher Training program will eventually use the Dunwoody location as its home base.

Both studios have put in place additional safety protocols by limiting class sizes, keeping mats 10 feet apart, taking temperatures upon entry and requiring masks when entering and exiting the building. Select classes from both locations are also offered via livestream through Zoom.
