BIZNOTE: New owner, new location for Bend N Move

The new year is bringing changes large and small for the local fitness-business scene. Here’s the first announcement we’ve received for 2024:

Bend N Move owner Tamara Gillest has sold her Yoga studio to Beth Dayo, former owner of Be Pilates. Beth has combined Pilates, Yoga, and Meditation into the business and moved the location (from its previous spot at 2735 California SW in Admiral) down to 3850-A Delridge Way SW. Pilates, Yoga and Meditation are now at the bottom of Pigeon Point, a short drive down Admiral for previous Admiral Neighborhood clients.

For now, the newly relocated studio will be known as Bend N Move powered by Life in the Body (the name of Dayo’s previous business).

    I would not have made it through my knee replacement without your gentle guidance. Thank you!

      Youre so welcome. You are an absolute inspiration. The best attitude and perseverance despite being in pain. And your recovery shows all the work you did to prep. Im excited for what this year brings for you amd glad i was able to add pilates to your yoga for these added benefits!!

    Two reasons why I have become “a regular” at this new studio location:  the wide variety of studio and zoom classes and the very careful attention that Beth and Milo give to each of our individual needs and abilities, especially for my post-surgery rehab.

      Awwww Cathy. Im so glad you were open to transitioning to a new teacher and new movements and its been amazing to watch you take to a lot of new ideas and all the improvement thats bringing to your arm and shoulder!!

    Excellent small classes for all levels. Instructors and peers are all very supportive. I’ve been attending classes since 2018 and strongly recommend.

      Hi Carole, I’m so glad you’ve embraced the transition and loved it. Its not easy changing teachers and programs and whole new instruction paradigm and you have done so great. I’m so glad to have you with us!

    I’ve been working with Beth since 2013. Best thing I ever did for my physical and emotional health was to commit to a yoga and Pilates practice. Beth is a treasure! She is supportive and will guide you to achieve the most from your individual practice.

      Wow, 10 years!! How the time flies!! I love that even after all that time, progress still comes, new changes and new challenges always!! :)
