Three friends plan to bring more balance to Plainfield.
Jen Cisneros, Theresa Wilson and Amy Brinkman will open Twist Yoga Lounge on March 1.
Located at 12337 S. Route 59 in the shopping center anchored by Nevin's Brewing Company, the studio will offer heated yoga seven days a week, with classes for all levels.
“It’s for every age, every shape, every body size,” Wilson said.
Twist will open with a grand opening celebration on March 1. Renovations are under way now at the Route 59 studio, located between 119th and 127th streets.
For the three women, who previously taught at a Naperville yoga studio, bringing Twist Yoga Lounge to Plainfield is a dream come true.
“I had always thought that I’d open a yoga studio, but I thought it would be when I was retired,” Cisneros said.
“The most exciting thing is bringing yoga to Plainfield,” Cisneros added, saying the trio saw a need for a yoga studio in the area.
Brinkman said Twist Yoga Lounge will specialize in power Vinyasa yoga.
“Basically, you’re connecting your movement to breathing,” she said, adding, “Anyone can do it. We’re just being ourselves, and it’s playful and fun.”
The studio will offer heated yoga, with most classes set to about 90 degrees.
“It’s more like warm yoga,” Brinkman said, adding the temperature won’t be as high as in a Bikram yoga class.
The heated, humidified room helps increase flexibility, stress relief and detoxification, Wilson said. Classes are designed to increase strength, flexibility and balance, along with providing a cardio workout.
When it comes to classes, "There’s a huge variety,” Brinkman said.
“There’s a sculpt class where we have weights,” she said, along with a candlelight yoga class and a “Rock Your Core” class focusing on core strength.
The yoga studio will shake things up with a Friday night “Shaken with a Twist” class set to upbeat music.
During its first month, Twist Yoga Lounge will offer “March Madness" specials, featuring one-time-only deals including $35 for one month of unlimited yoga or $200 for three months of unlimited yoga.
From March 1 to March 3, all classes are free during the studio’s grand opening weekend.
