A new fitness studio and spa looking to treat Richmonders’ bodies and minds has opened in the West End of the city.

One Wellness has started operating at 4110 Fitzhugh Ave.

The studio offers classes and workshops in yoga, pilates, interval training and hula-hooping, as well as treatment services including massage and organic skincare.

First-time entrepreneur and New York City native Elizabeth Krusen opened the studio in late October after purchasing the 2,400-square-foot building in April for $327,000, per city property records.

Krusen, whose background is in language and literacy education, said her journey to open One Wellness began four years ago.

“I stopped drinking and started meditating,” she said. “I was coping with stress in unhelpful ways.”

She said One Wellness is her way of helping others manage stress and develop what she calls self-compassion, after her personal transformation from “perfectionism, anxiety and addiction.”

Krusen said four local practitioners are subleasing private rooms for massage, hypnosis therapy and skincare.

“I wanted to expand offerings beyond just yoga and pilates,” she said. “I think (meditation and mindfulness) are topical now, they’re something people now know.”

One Wellness has a staff of about 30 and hosts 50 classes per week. Drop-in classes cost $23, with membership and package pricing available. The studio also hosts workshops on meditation and breathing techniques.

One Wellness joins another new, locally owned health studio in the city: Boketto Wellness opened in the Fan in March.
