Glen Cove, NY – Assemblymember Charles Lavine (D-Glen Cove) presented a citation in recognition of the recent opening of a new yoga studio in Glen Cove.On Friday (7/22) Lavine met with owners Jason and Sheila Samel who are trying to set themselves apart with Buddha Jams Yoga and Fitness. With its colorful tapestries, Zen-like statues and jamming music, the studio, located at 62 Glen Street, conjures up its own unique vibe when one walks in. Jason, a certified yoga instructor with a background in the music industry, developed the idea for the theme as a result of his strong belief in the lessons of Buddha and how yoga helped him during times of struggle in his personal life. The studio, which has ample parking, opened in June after extensive renovations to the building and now offers dozens of, what he calls, ‘jam’ classes including some that are free of charge.
“I could not be happier for Jason and his family as they enter this new and exciting endeavor and bring something truly unique to the City of Glen Cove. Jason has been through a lot and is using his experience and knowledge to help others find the kind of spiritual peace we need a lot more of in today’s world,” Lavine said.
