Yoga business opens on 53rd

Hyde Park yoga buffs have another option after CorePower opened last week.

CorePower, 1539 E. 53rd St., opened above Akira on Tuesday May 28. The business offers two studios that can host multiple types of classes at the same time. Classes include hot yoga, which takes place in a climate controlled hot room, and yoga for advanced or beginning practitioners. It also sells clothing and yoga accessories.

The University of Chicago brought the yoga studio in as part of its Harper Court expansion. The remaining Harper Court businesses are expected to begin opening in the summer.
