MEQUON — Yama Yoga True North is the latest addition to Spur 16 in the Mequon Town Center.

Cindy Shaffer, owner of Shaffer Development, which is building the project on the north side of Mequon Road that will include apartments, the Mequon Public Market food court, other retail and St. Paul Fish Co., announced the addition of Yama Yoga Tuesday.

“The Yama Yoga True North team was drawn to locate their new concept for a yoga studio and wellness center at the Spur 16 site because of its amazing location alongside numerous local artisan restaurants and services, offering a holistic vision to quality living in the community,” said Ryan Hader, a co-owner.

Yama Yoga has been providing a safe, welcoming environment for yogis to cultivate and expand their practice since 2005. Recently, Yama Yoga expanded its mission to provide a source for yoga knowledge by offering a Yoga Alliance and state of Wisconsin- approved 200-hour yoga teacher certification program, as well as a graduate program of 300 additional hours for teachers who want to bring their yoga training to the next level, according to a news release.

Hader’s approach to yoga involves a healing, strengthening and grounding practice, based in principles of alignment. He is also the creator of the True North Bodywork technique, a sequence of assisted stretches, massage techniques and energy work for all body types, the news release added.

He is a Master Reiki Healer and facilitates a variety of personal growth and transformation modalities through sound, song and chant, the news release added.

Yama Yoga True North will offer yoga classes and workshops, yoga teacher trainings, bodywork, Reiki, Thai massage, concerts and more, according to the release.

“Having been a student of Ryan Hader for years, I can tell you that he brings a unique approach to his comprehensive yoga practice, unlike anyone else in our city,” said Jenni Vetter, chief operating officer of Spur 16, 6300 W. Mequon Road.

Already-announced merchants for Mequon Public Market include Anodyne Coffee, Beans and Barley, Purple Door Ice Cream, Café Corazon, Bavette La Boucherie, Happy Dough Lucky and Screaming Tuna.
