MOUNT VERNON — “Breathe … sweat … heal” is the motto behind Hot Yoga Escape, now open at 812 Coshocton Ave., building 2 unit 1.

Business owner Charlene Bland opened for business on Nov. 30 after teaching yoga for two years. Bland grew up in the Gambier area, learning her yoga techniques in California and practicing for the past 20 years before deciding to return to Knox County and open her own business.

“I just knew that some day I wanted to open my own studio,” said Bland, “And I wanted to share yoga with this community.”
