It took nearly a year, but Milton Yoga is now open at 12 Brush Hill Road.
Two years ago, Sean McCarthy returned to his hometown with the mission of opening Milton Yoga and creating a yoga community. As of May 1, that community has a new home base, the 1,700-square-foot first floor space at 12 Brush Hill Road. Since the ski instructor turned yogi started his business, he'd been sharing space at the Carriage House School on Randolph Avenue. The new studio was completely redone and features two rooms for heated and unheated yoga. Milton Yoga operated out of the Carriage House for 730 days. In that time, McCarthy said he's welcomed 1,534 new students. The class offerings will now increase from 27 to over 50 at the new Milton Yoga. Most noticeably, the new space will allow for daytime classes, an option not …

The Milton Yoga Foundation, Front Line Yoga and the Jimmy Fund will host Yoga on the Milton Town Green on September 9.
On a typical Sunday afternoon, the Baron Hugo Gazebo and the green in front of Town Hall are quiet and empty. This Sunday, the Town Green will be much more occupied, but similarly hushed.

Milton native Sean McCarthy discusses the benefits of 5,000 years of yoga tradition.
The discipline of yoga comes in a variety of forms. Originating in India over 5,000 years ago, it has always been associated with attaining a spiritual, mental and physical balance. In the West, the study and practice of Yoga has been part of since the mid-nineteenth century but it wasn't until the 1960s that yoga became one of the most popular ways to maintain physical and mental fitness.

A Milton-based meditation instructor recently offered an introduction class at a Milton yoga studio.
The philosophies behind yoga and meditation, while focused on slightly different areas, have plenty of parallels. These similarities make the collaboration between a Milton resident with a growing meditation instruction career and a Milton-based yoga studio a likely paring. In late October, Andy Kelley, a Chopra-certified meditation instructor known as the Boston Buddha, held an introduction to meditation class at Milton Yoga. Sean McCarthy owns the yoga studio, which is located in the Carriage House School on Randolph Avenue. The successful session, which drew 20 participants, was set up when the men met at a mutual friend’s birthday party. “I think it was well received tonight,” said McCarthy after the session, adding he’d like to have …
