Boutique studio in a health and wellness oasis
Elements3 Yoga was founded by Needham native, Andrew Tanner in 2014. Prior to opening the studio, Andrew had spent the past twelve years study and teaching various styles of yoga in New York City and working at Kripalu.
When he moved back to the Boston area to be close to his family in 2013 he met Robert Yauckoes of Acupuncture Connections in Framingham. Fascinated by how the theories of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine complimented the practice of yoga, Andrew saw the opportunity to be part of transforming and serving the Framingham Center community.
With like-minded businesses, an enthusiastic landlord, a farmer's market and university nearby, this growing health and wellness oasis in Framingham was the perfect place to launch a yoga studio that could service as an educational center for healthy living.
Nearly three years after launch, the studio has close to 30 weekly classes, has hosted some of the industry's thought leaders including Mark Whitwell, Sarah Joy Marsh and Larissa Carlson Hall, has several regularly reoccurring monthly workshops, and has the premiere Aerial yoga in the area. Come Fall of 2017, Elements3 will introduce its first round of Yoga Teacher graduates.
