Kur Wellness Studios, 412 Bond St., Asbury Park is marking its fifth anniversary in Asbury Park with livestream virtual yoga for a cause.
“When we first began planning ways to celebrate our five years in Asbury Park, we never could have imagined how quickly things would change in our beautiful city,” said Troy Teeboom, Kur’s owner and longtime resident of Asbury Park. “While our community struggles to cope with the coronavirus pandemic, owners and our teams learn to adjust to our ‘new normal’.”
Kur Wellness Studios was born out of Teeboom’s longing for a local space, the desire to live in Asbury Park full-time, and the apparent need for a wellness center in our vibrant, growing city.
Six years ago, Teeboom launched a year-long transformation of a building that once housed a print shop. The space became Kur, a new and different kind of wellness center offering both traditional and “eastern” services such as Ayurvedic spa treatments and products to yoga, and strength training classes that utilize Kur’s unique Yoga Wall.
In addition to Kur’s team of licensed spa therapists, they also have certified fitness instructors that offer a variety of yoga classes and private personal training sessions designed to increase overall fitness and strength in clients of every age and fitness level.
“Kur has become a one-stop center where our guests can enjoy therapeutic spa services, the mind/body Zen of yoga, and personalized strength training, all under one roof. You can even take it one step further by an hour with our Ayurvedic Health Coach, and you can also learn to improve your health with the ancient Indian principles of life and longevity.” Teeboom said.
In recognition of Kur’s fifth anniversary, and the fact that it is still closed due to COVID-19, Kur is offering donation-only virtual yoga classes the entire week of June 7. Join the Kur community for fun, wellness, and a way to give. All donations will benefit StaySafeAP, a fund for Asbury Park food justice and musical education programs.
“We recognize that many people are struggling, especially our friends and neighbors who work in our local businesses,” Teeboom said. “All are welcome to participate in these online classes and pay what they can or pay nothing at all.”
Instructions on how to participate and schedule/descriptions of donation-only classes can be found at www.kurstudios.com/yoga. Sign up for any/all free classes 6/7-6/13 through the MindBody link on the Kur website or with the MindBody app. Then Venmo your donations to @StaySafeAP.
