SE Portland Yoga Studio Aims to Re-Open as a “Living Building”

September 19, 2013

Yoga Union – a staple in the SE Portland yoga community – is currently in the midst of fundraising and designing their new building, which will strive to meet Living Building Challenge standards as they seek responsible construction and operating methods.

The 8,500-square-foot structure will include yoga and movement studios, an event space, a child care center for members, a café, a green roof and a wellness center that offers naturopathic and acupuncture care and massage therapy.

Please read more detailed information – including an interview with one of the owners – here.

I’m hoping to be witness to this process, and maybe even participate in it’s facilitation. Regardless, I’m very excited to see such a dynamic and interesting project come to life!
