WENATCHEE — When Elvis and Teddy Garcia set out to open a yoga studio and coffee shop in the Wenatchee area, they had a clear vision. They wanted an open, airy space with a lot of natural light. They wanted food, drinks and products that promoted health and wellness. And they wanted a welcoming space for not just yoga students, but the community.
Drawing from their experience operating a yoga studio in Seattle's Green Lake neighborhood, which they continue to operate, the couple opened The Yogi Grind (previously called Seattle Yoga Lounge) in Wenatchee in 2019. Elvis is originally from Wenatchee and grew up in the area.
