West Park welcomes new yoga studio

New yoga studio opens in West Park, Cleveland, OH, InwardCompass, Yoga

By Jerry Masek     

Yoga is a practice in calming the waves of the mind during stressful times.    

Vern Sherrill certainly called on that training as he worked to open a new yoga studio in the middle of a pandemic.   

InwardCompass Yoga (often shortened to ICYoga) officially opened Aug. 28 at 15903 West Park Road, at 5 Points.   

Sherrill faces a continuing challenge. Because of social distancing, only 5 persons can take each class. So, he’s trying to offer as many class times as he can.   

“I’ve already hired three other yoga instructors, and I hope to hire more,” said Sherrill, who discovered the benefits of yoga in 2015.   

These specials should appeal to both newbies and veterans.    

From 5:30-6:30 p.m. Wednesday, there is an open donation class. Proceeds are split among between three ICYoga programs — Sponsor a Yogi, West Park Helping Hands, and a local charity.    

From 7:30-8:30 p.m. Friday, classes alternate between those involved in health care (including support people), and those who are first responders (bring your badge to the first class). These classes are also based on open donations.   

Classes start at $14, with additional savings when a package deal is purchased. Students and senior citizens pay $10 (bring your student ID to the first class).   

Because of COVID, wear a mask. Mats are available; they must be cleaned after each use.    

Persons must pre-register at www.inwardcompassyoga.com.
