St. Petersburg events and news.
Here’s our picks for events and happenings around St. Pete for the week.
Body Electric Athletic Company – Just Announced
St. Pete’s favorite yoga studio, known for great teachers, a beautiful space, and welcoming environment just announced that they will be opening a new athletic studio in the warehouse district. The expansion feels like a natural progression, since opening in 2013 the studio has only grown in popularity, and in 2016 the company expanded their current yoga studio location by adding a new lobby and additional large studio. By adding an athletic facility, The BE will be offering current and future members and guests the opportunity to have a well-rounded fitness practice with classes geared towards strength training, conditioning and other types of movement. Opening date will be sometime this December. Congrats to The BE! We can’t wait to see the new space.
