Update, June 26, 2015: Veria announced the center is slated to open in a year, on June 21, 2016, which also happens to be the International Day of Yoga.

The resort that inspired Dirty Dancing will soon be known more for yoga classes and Ayurvedic treatments.

According to the The Times Herald Record, Kutsher’s, the last of the famous Borscht Belt resorts in Sullivan County, New York, was sold to Veria Lifestyle, the healthy living company owned by Indian billionaire media mogul Subhash Chandra, which is behind Veria Living and Veria Naturals.

The resort, located about two hours north of New York City, will be home to “yoga sciences, Ayurvedic medical treatment, biodynamic restaurants, golf, tennis and a wide range of health-driven activities.”

Interestingly, it’s not the only healthy resort currently setting up shop in a Northeast property with a storied history. Tucson-based Miraval Resort & Spa recently purchased a New Jersey estate previously owned by the King of Morocco to open an expansive, “five-star inner life resort” just south of the five boroughs.

Both will be welcome options for New Yorkers who want to de-stress and detox without getting on a plane. And maybe Veria can offer AcroYoga classes to teach the famous Johnny-and-Baby lift to pay homage to the past? —Lisa Elaine Held
