Walking down Capitol Way in Olympia, I noticed a new business in the preliminary hubbub of opening. Through the window I could see a woman painting while another woman ironed. The front doors were opened to a burgundy wall with the word “breathe” written across in white paint.
I poked my head in and spoke with Lisa Cosmillo, a former copy editor and real estate broker, about her new studio at 601 Capitol Way S.
“It’s all been really serendipitous,” says Cosmillo about opening her new business, “I just started dreaming and it’s all been falling into place.”
The 3,000 sq ft space is beautifully designed with warm colors and hardwood floors, and will feature a variety of classes including yoga, pilates, zumba, kid’s classes and weights. Massage, a natural foods snack bar and natural clothing line will also be on premises.
“It’s like a mini health mall,” says Cosmillo.
Breathe will celebrate a soft opening Monday, October 1 and a hard opening Friday, October 5 with snacks, yoga performances and featured artists as part of Olympia Arts Walk.
