Those looking to get their sweat on should be happy to hear that, in addition to the Eastown Grand Rapids and Holland locations, the Funky Buddha Yoga Hothouse is adding a third studio in Forest Hills. Located at 820 Forest Hill Ave. SE in the new Forest Hills Center, the 2,500 square foot facility is yet another locale for hot yoga bliss at 95 degrees and high humidity, said Chris Reinbold, Funky Buddha co-founder. The Forest Hills location will have a capacity of 60 yogis per class and will share the same aesthetic, vibe and class offerings as our other two locations, he said. In addition to the new developments amenities, Reinbold said area demographics and a large contingent of clients already coming from the surrounding suburbs, were the primary reasons for the expansion.
