We're Open: The Yoga Shack in Bethpage

One Bethpage-based business has found a way to keep their community connected during the pandemic.
The Yoga Shack is owned by best friends Cindy Valentine and Michelle Denicola.
The business offers classes in the park and virtually to provide a place for mindful stretching.
Cindy and Michelle say the laughter and friendship has helped through this challenging time.
"We never skipped a beat, so we closed our last class in studio. That was a Sunday, and Monday morning we were up and running with Zoom,” says Denicola. Even with yoga mats spaced 12 feet apart, their community still feels connected.
“This is the best to be with your community and being together,” says Liz, of Hicksville.
The Yoga Shack offers flexible classes for all fitness levels, and as the weather gets colder they are pivoting their business to prepare for more inside classes by offering hand sanitizer and temperature checks.
"In order to walk into the studio at all, you have to have a mask on … We also did replace all the air filters in both studio rooms and in the office," says Denicola.
