Being flexible is good for business. And appropriately so for the newest business opening today in Fondren. Nichole Baker’s StudiOm Yoga begins classes at 11:30am after relocating from their former Belhaven location to the Woodland Hills Shopping Cneter. Baker was one of several business owners whose move was necessitated by the Baptist Hospital property purchase that is also moving Keifer’s and Pizza Shack. Baker said finding the space, formerly occupied by Pack and Parcel, took weeks, and that renovations made it just right for her needs. The 44 year old says Fondren is the right fit for her because it’s “moving” and “buzzing” and that the location, next to McDade’s, is in a high traffic area.

StudiOm’s 250-300 students practice Iyengar Yoga which emphasizes form and precision and uses props to help anyone of any level get into its therapeutic poses. Founder B.K.S. Iyengar was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in a recent publication.

StudiOm is open 7 days a week. Call 601.209.6325 or visit for more info.
