A grand re-opening party is planned for 1-4 p.m. Sept. 8 at Moonglow Yoga in Hempfield.

New owners Bethany and Sean Connelly of Greensburg say the event will feature information on classes, the Iron City Eats food truck, music by Hayley Daily, information on essential oils and health and wellness, henna art, a tarot card reader and giveaways, including a drawing for a free year of yoga classes.

The studio at 125 Nature Run Road will offer various classes for all levels of fitness and experience, including hot Vinyasa Flow yoga and Buti, which Bethany Connelly calls a “tribal fusion” mix of yoga, dance, African-style movement and high-energy music.

During September, the Connellys are offering an introductory rate of $80 per month for unlimited classes, requiring a three-month commitment and including membership perks. Those signing up also will receive a cotton tote bag with a yoga mat, Moonglow shirt and water bottle.

The bags also will contain gift certificates and coupons for local businesses, while supplies last.

Classes will be taught by Bethany Connelly and other instructors. Connelly says she has practiced yoga for most of her adult life and received teacher training at Moonglow, under the previous ownership.

She also is a dance instructor who manages the dance program at the Regional Family YMCA of Laurel Highlands near Mt. Pleasant.

Sean Connelly, who works for a San Diego, Calif.-based software company will be in charge of the business aspects of the studio.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
