Danielle DeCostello on Glow Yoga

By Kenneth Barilari

#HipNJ spoke with Danielle DeCostello, owner of Bella Organici in Cranford, about their upcoming Glow Yoga class.

DeCostello recalls looking into yoga studios in the area and realizing that they all offered the same classes. “That’s so bizarre to me,” she said.

When visiting family in Boston, she met a man named Kevin who introduced her to glow in the dark yoga. “I went in and said that this is yoga for someone like me,” DeCostello said. “I am someone who just wants to stretch and feel good.”

DeCostello made a Facebook event for Bella Organici’s Glow Yoga, and it was sold out within 48 hours. Guests will be given Fresh Pressed Organic Juices, as well as collagen shots for those 21 and older, because we stop producing collagen at 19.  For the sold-out kickoff night, prizes from like-minded business will be raffled off.

Don’t have your ticket for kickoff night? No worries! Glow Yoga will be back every Thursday and Saturday night for eight weeks.

“There’s people tired of going to bars every weekend,” DeCostello stated. With this, there is no alcohol involved. You can meet someone non-club setting.” Bella Organici offers Glow Yoga for bachelorette parties, as well as private sorority and college events.

“This is a rocking good time. Anyone that wants to come, wear neon or white, and bring your family and friends. We’ll take care of the rest,” DeCostello said.

Bella Organici is a feel good meditation spa in the heart of downtown Cranford focusing on holistic skincare, spiritual healing, meditation, and yoga.
