Evolation Yoga has moved its studio from Summerland to Carpinteria. The new studio at 5320 Carpinteria Ave., Suite F, will offer 35 to 40 classes per week, including hot, warm, non-heated flow and kids classes. Evolation Yoga originally opened in Buffalo N.Y. before relocating to California. The Carpinteria-based studio is the hub and only location owned by the founders of Evolation Yoga, now a network of over 50-affiliated yoga studios worldwide. The studio will also serve as a teacher-training site to an estimated 60 or 70 international teachers each year. Business partners Astrid McNellis and Mark Drost live in Santa Barbara and Montecito, respectively, and many of their teachers are local to Carpinteria. “Bottom line is we’re super excited to be part of and serving this tight-knit community,” said McNellis, “We feel that with the deep experience of our team and our variety of classes (hot, flow and yin), we will serve the community well.”
