In our September 2014 issue, we highlighted some local yoga studios.
MOONDOG YOGA STUDIO
44 Front St, Quakertown
June Hunt, owner of Moondog Yoga Studio in Quakertown, believes in the transformative power of yoga. Yoga came into her life through a VHS tape handed to her by a co-worker, during a particularly stressful time in the corporate world. Hunt was hooked. “The changes in my life from yoga have been profound, and I want to share it,” Hunt says.
Since opening in 2010, Moondog has been a fresh, upbeat studio that strives to be “your third place.” Hunt says she aims for the studio to be a welcoming retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. She offers a variety of yoga practices so students can find the best fit for them at any given time. A student’s needs (in their practice) change over time, so Moondog makes shifting from one style of practice to another easy and natural.
Moondog is a partner with the Himalayan Institute, offering their teacher trainings and AYS certifications. Hunt also started Quakertown’s Love Local program, a co-op merchant group bringing awareness to the value of buying local.
“When someone comes into the studio, I feel so honored, because they are saying, ‘Of all the places that I could be, and all the things I could do, I choose to be here,’” says Hunt.
