Urban Oasis Yoga Studio to open in Delano

WICHITA — A new yoga studio is going in the former Siva Power Yoga space at 535 W. Douglas in Delano.

Lori Morton is opening Urban Oasis Yoga Studio in 2,326 square feet on Jan. 1.

“We’re doing our first class at four o’clock,” Morton says.

It’ll be free to introduce people to the studio.

Morton says she’s made a number of changes to the space, such as adding mirrors.

Stephanie Wiens and Shannon Palmer of Occidental Management handled the deal for the space.

In addition to the studio space, Morton says there will be a relaxation area with spa water, a boutique and “some different, fun things.”

She plans on offering a variety of yoga classes, such as hot yoga, a dance fusion class, yoga for beginners and praise and worship yoga classes during which she says she’ll take donations for World Impact.

Morton also will offer stand-up paddle yoga at the Wichita Swim Club in the winter and various lakes and other water in the summer.

“I’m just hoping that people will be able to find a class that serves them well.”

Allmetal Recycling owners buy Kamen Recycling, plan to consolidate offices

WICHITA — Some customers have noticed some changes at Kamen Recycling at 800 E. 21st St.

It turns out Allmetal Recycling, which Ron and Marty Cornejo own, purchased Kamen in August.

“We just did that kind of under the radar,” Ron Cornejo says. “It wasn’t intended to be under the radar.”

More changes will be on the way in the next six months to a year, including a consolidation of the two offices and a name change for Kamen to Allmetal Recycling.

Allmetal is located at 2461 N. New York. Its office will move to a new building that will be built at the 21st Street location, but the recycling facility will remain where it is. Each facility has about 10 acres.

“It just makes it better to have everything in one location,” Cornejo says of the administrative offices.

With the Kamen purchase, he says the company can handle larger volumes.

“It just expands our market. It allows us to move more of the different types of recyclables.”

Cornejo says the Kamen facility handles more nonferrous metals. Ferrous metals are magnetic-type irons and heavy steel.

“It gave us a little stronger profile in that area,” Cornejo says of nonferrous metals. “It broadened our ability.”

The Kamen facility also has a railroad track that runs on the property.
