After growing up in East Boston and working in the neighborhood for the past decade, Angela D’Amore noticed something missing: a yoga studio.
“I definitely noticed it personally as a void in the neighborhood,” she says, “and I knew just from talking to people that that was a void that people wanted to be filled.”
D’Amore, a school teacher and longtime yoga practitioner, decided to do so herself. This weekend, she’ll welcome her first batch of students to the Point , East Boston’s first barre and yoga studio. (East Boston Meditation Center has offered yoga classes in the past, but public classes are currently on hold.)
