Yoga Studio Wants to 'Lift' Easton

Owner of LiftEaston, a yoga/massage studio, says she wants to help people relieve stress.

You're probably reading these words on a computer, or an iPad or some sort of similar device.

But you might also be reading this on your cell phone, while also doing something else. (Hopefully not driving.)

Michele Vrentas, owner of the new yoga studio LiftEaston, wants to get you out of this plugged-in, stressed-out place.

She's hoping her S. Second Street business can get people used to "being OK with being with their bodies, with sitting and breathing and moving."

Vrentas argues that stress people feel has changed since she began practicing yoga more than two decades ago.

"I think stress before was 'get a job, find a job, find income,'" she said. "Now, we're being asked to redefine ourselves."

At the very least, she said, it's a way to feel better.

"I'm 58, and I'm like I'm 35, and I'm doing handstands," Vrentas said.

Vrentas is an Austin transplant who has worked with Easton Yoga—where she said owner Alicia Rambo Wozniak served as "a great mentor."

At Lift, Vrentas and other insturctors offer classes on various types of yoga Tuesday through Saturday. Vrentas, a licensed massage therapist, also offers a number of types of massage.

I've been a massage therapist for 14 years, and by far both in knowledge, deep concern for my well being and hands on technique Michele is #1. With becoming a yoga teacher and opening her own studio, you'll be in the most capable hands. Her passion for health is equaled only by her passion for life and joy. Miss you here in Austin. Patrice
