A fitness studio with a holistic feel will open at Atlantic Station later this year.
Founded by Kiara and Corey Johnson, ATL Kula will sit in a 1,700-square-foot space near the Twelve Hotel, according to a release about the opening. The store will include yoga, barre and Pilates classes.
An opening date has not been confirmed.
“We’ve been hosting free weekly Yoga in the Park for our customers over the past several years, and it has been very successful,” Nick Garzia, director of retail leasing at Hines Retail Resource Group, said in a statement. “Having a permanent yoga studio at Atlantic Station will amplify that experience. It is going to have a strong appeal not only to the residents and office workers who call Atlantic Station home, but to the surrounding community.”
The group manages leasing for Atlantic Station.

The studio will feature two full-size classrooms, a lounge and a meditation room. The fitness center will also offer “a variation of yoga classes taught by six seasoned instructors including Hatha, Vinyasa and restorative yoga practices, as well as traditional Pilates and barre classes,” according to the release.
“After seeing the success of Atlantic Station’s summer yoga activities, we realized it was the perfect location for our first permanent studio,” Corey Johnson said in a statement. “We are so excited to bring ATL Kula to such an iconic spot in Atlanta and feel like our various wellness options will be beneficial to the thousands of residents and employees that live and work in the neighborhood.”
The Johnsons plan to incorporate natural elements throughout the interior of the studio, including a soothing color palette, koi pond and plant life.
