First-to-Market Yoga Franchise Aims to Re-Popularize Ancient Practice; Capitalize on Untapped Segment of Boutique Fitness Industry
Irvine, Calif. (January 14, 2019) – YogaSix, a modern fitness boutique offering a fresh perspective on one of the world’s oldest practices, announced today the next step in expanding its unmatched mind-body experience with the launch of its franchise opportunity. With seven open studios and another 50 units sold thus far, the brand is on pace to meet its goal of opening 300 locations across the U.S. over the next few years. Upcoming studio openings include Albuquerque, New Mexico which is slated to open in February 2019 and the brand’s corporate studio in Yorba Linda, California, set to open in March 2019.
Backed by powerhouse boutique fitness curator Xponential Fitness, YogaSix aims to debunk the stereotype that often surrounds the practice of yoga and deliver its life-enhancing benefits to all ages, shapes, sizes and genders. Utilizing modern language instead of Sanskrit and offering six core formats – Y6 101, Y6 Stretch, Y6 Slow Flow, Y6 Hot, Y6 Power, and Y6 Sculpt Flow – YogaSix’s classes are meant to encompass every fitness level, whether the focus is on deep stretching, stress relief, or breaking a sweat.
“Many people have come to see yoga as either exclusive, confusing or tiresome, but at YogaSix we are breathing new life into the practice,” said Lindsay Junk, President of the company. “Our mission at YogaSix is to change the way people think about and understand yoga, and give them a mind body-experience that is empowering, energizing and most importantly, fun.”
Developed in San Diego in 2012, YogaSix quickly gained popularity as it spread to New Mexico and the Midwest. With thousands of students visiting per week, YogaSix is already changing the way people experience yoga and will continue to do so as the first-to-market yoga franchise. Backed by two decades of fitness franchising experience and a corporate team that will provide significant support for site selection, build out, marketing, retail, sales and operations, as well as extensive training, YogaSix is primed for expansion. The brand is seeking qualified franchise partners with a passion for fitness and health and who exhibit strong leadership and business skills.
“As the boutique fitness industry continues to explode with vigorous, high-intensity workouts, YogaSix offers a unique business opportunity and the first of its kind in the franchising space,” adds Lindsay Junk. “YogaSix delivers a workout from which anyone can benefit, so we’re excited to spread our take on yoga across the nation.”
YogaSix offers franchise partners the opportunity to capitalize on a fresh brand in an emerging market with tremendous support, infrastructure and knowledge. The total investment to open a YogaSix franchise is $216,900 - $399,750. For more information on the YogaSix franchise opportunity, please visit www.yogasix.com.
