Business Comings: Long vacant Snoqualmie retail space to become large Yoga, Barre Studio

In June, when Big Star Studios moved across Snoqualmie Parkway and into to their new spot in the Snoqualmie Ridge  Business Park, a childcare business was supposed to move in to their former retail space on Center Blvd…. but that didn’t happen.

A few months passed. Things changed. And it seems a different local business will soon be occupying that large studio space – Pineapple Life Yoga & Barre Studios.

Local Family opens new Snoqualmie Valley business

Residents Brandi and Brian Cohen have called Snoqualmie home since 2004 and say they love it – so much so that they are raising their four kids here, in addition to taking on a local business dream.

The Cohens are excited about their new business – Pineapple Life – but it’s going to take a few months of construction to get the space ready for classes.

In addition to taking over the former Big Star space, the Cohen’s will be knocking down a wall to enlarge the studio. That means the former ReMax real estate space will no longer sit vacant. It will become part of the Pineapple Life.

Construction should begin soon and will likely be done in March. Brandi said, “Building Himalayan Salt Walls, knocking down walls, and constructing a living wall… it’s A LOT.”

When finished, Pineapple Life will be 2,600 square feet large, with one room for yoga and one for barre classes. And Desiree Adams – former owner of Twisted Bliss Yoga – was hired as studio director.

Pineapple Life plans to offer 14 classes per day, starting bright and early at 5:30AM and running through 8PM. There will be a mix of different types of yoga – hot (infrared heat), Bikram, Restorative, power and sculpt.

Brandi said they’re planning to support other Ridge merchants, too, offering Friday night happy hour glow yoga classes where afterward patrons can grab a drink and shop with the local merchant of the month that Pineapple Life will highlight.

She explained, “We are looking to partner with as many entrepreneurs as possible, especially females, so that we can showcase all the talent in the Valley.”

Pineapple Life also plans to offer annual retreats to “exciting places,” and well as complementary child care for studio members and infrared saunas.

So mark your calendars for March. Until then the transformation continues – a wall will come down while a living wall (think plants growing vertically) and beautiful salt walls go up.

You can check out Pineapple Life on their website or  Facebook page to keep up.

Good luck Brandi, Brian and team!
