FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- There's a a new yoga and barre studio in Fairfield.
Jarosa , in the Greenfield Hill section, opened Friday, Oct. 6 and offers a flexible schedule of yoga, barre and meditation classes designed to make everyone feel at home on the mat.
The studio is owned by Edel Keane, a local resident long known for her “Yoga With Edel,” home studio classes.
Originally from Ireland, Keane moved to Fairfield in 2010 after spending nearly a decade working as an investment banker on Wall Street. Practicing yoga helped her manage the stress of her demanding career and life’s everyday challenges.
Her love for yoga led her to embark on a 200 hour Pranatthan Yoga Teacher training, followed by a further 200 hour Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training.
The launch of Jarosa holds a special meaning for her in that it’s comprised of the first two letters in each of her three children’s names. The design of the mandala [in the studio's logo] represents her yoga journey.
To celebrate the grand opening and welcome neighbors, Jarosa is hosting a public Open House on Saturday, Oct. 7 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. where guests can enjoy special discounts, healthy local fare and sign-up for classes.
Jarosa’s seasoned instructors will also be on hand to answer questions about the various Yoga (Vinyasa, Hatha, Kundalini), Barre and Meditation classes offered on the schedule.
Jarosa Studio is located at 75 Hillside Rd., 475•888•9888; www.jarosastudio.com .
