In its first year, the yoga studio, which is located at 91 Main Street in Franklin, has branched out in numerous ways with its classes. Not only are there yoga classes offered for all levels, there are a range of other programs.
PEARLL Yoga for the Soul offers its Yoga for Survivors class on Thursday nights, a unique offering for women that helps women, especially those who are dealing with complex post traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD).
For Tween Girls, Belly Dancing is another weekly class that takes place at PEARLL on Friday nights.
Baby and Toddler Yoga, a way for mothers to bond with their babies ages three months to two years, takes place on Monday nights.
Also on Mondays is H.A.L.O. Yoga, an acronym for “Health,” spinal “Alignment,” “Lymph” movement, and healthy “Organs.” This yoga program helps to focus on these organs and body parts, for overall wellness.
Meditation is another offering that was on PEARLL’s recent schedule, for a five-week period. There is a free open meditation class on Wednesday mornings. On Sundays, owner Keri Marino also teaches a free open meditation class on Sundays. That day, she also offers a free Vinyasa class for students that have a class card, otherwise, this class is $15 for those who are drop-ins to her studio.

Marino started PEARLL with a mission as a survivor of domestic violence and cancer. New students pay $10 for their first class. The studio offers a loyalty program for all students, with discounts beginning after five classes. The discount can be applied to classes or to the gift store (which is open on Sundays and Fridays, click here for hours).
PEARLL has a discount class program for veterans, seniors, students and DASI (Domestic Abuse & Sexual Assault Intervention Services) referrals.

There were light refreshments and a cake to celebrate the studio’s anniversary. Guests could also have a henna tattoo painted on during the festivities. Vendors were there with special items for sale in the room across from the studio during the event.
