BLDG7 Provides Top Quality Yoga To Berks County

By Mike Abelson

For years Linda Zogas ran a yoga studio out of a tight, clausterphobic facility. That changed in 2015 when she opened BLDG7 in Wyomissing. Since then, the studio has become an anchor in the community and helped provide relaxation to thousands of people. Melanie Brill, the studio's director of sales and marketing, answered questions for Pennsylvania Homes about her career and what keeps her motivated.

What was the inspiration behind opening BLDG7 Yoga? How long have you been open?

After years as operating as a small yoga studio within the walls of two fitness facilities, we were ready to take our business to the next level. We wanted to offer more to the Berks County community in terms of Health and Wellness opportunities and really felt there was a lack of these resources in the area. We opened our doors on October 1, 2015 and haven't looked back.

How would you describe the atmosphere and culture the classes at BLDG7 offer to students?

The best feedback we get from our community is the big sigh of relief they feel when they walk through our doors. Our atmosphere is one of peace and calm. Our culture is about sharing knowledge, caring for each other and making personal connections. Each of our teachers loves yoga and their passion is to share it with as many people as possible. If our clients are stress reduced and rejuvenated when they leave then we have done our jobs well.

I read that BLDG7 has won "Best of Berks" awards several times. What do you think it is about your studio and classes that make you stand out so much?

I truly think that it is the standard we hold ourselves to. When we started on this journey, we wanted to be the premier yoga studio in Berks County by offering more styles of yoga, more class times and more services than any other location. We currently have over 60 regularly scheduled classes seven days a week, and I think the teacher caliber and variety really speak to our community. We are honored they have chosen us as Best of Berks for three consecutive years, we never dreamed this would happen.

On the website it says you have a Yoga Karma program. Can you tell me a little more about this and why you decided to offer it?

Our Karma Yoga Program is similar to a work exchange program. We have Karmis that work our front desk, some that take care of the towels, others that do some general housekeeping in exchange for an unlimited class pass at the studio. They often are drawn to the studio, being here, and giving back in whatever way they can. They are our biggest fans, and trust us we are their biggest fans! They keep the studio humming at all hours of the day and we are truly thankful this program has been so successful. We currently have 10+ Karmis on staff that usually put in about 4 hours a week of services in exchange for taking classes. Most of our Karmis have been with us for years and have become family. We love them.
