Modern yoga studio with SoCal vibe chooses Fort Worth for Texas debut
A new yoga studio with a laid-back approach is rolling out the mats in Fort Worth. YogaSix, a boutique studio from Orange County, California, will open its doors at 5924 Convair Dr., Ste. 452, near Whole Foods Market in the Waterside shopping center, on March 5.
The Southwest Fort Worth spot is the company's first in Texas and the first of seven North Texas locations it plans to open this spring. The others will be in East Dallas, Las Colinas, Prosper, Flower Mound, and two in McKinney. Neha Bagga and Karan Batra own the Fort Worth studio.
YogaSix calls itself "a modern boutique yoga concept," which focuses on making the practice accessible for all, as well as empowering, energizing, and fun.
"Most notable for YogaSix is their focus to make newcomers feel comfortable and welcome by using modern language instead of 'Sanskrit' to describe its practice, because traditional language can be intimidating to new members," a YogaSix spokeswoman says.
The "Six" part of the name comes from its core offerings: six different classes ranging from hot and powerful to slow and mindful yoga — Y6 101, Y6 Restore, Y6 Slow Flow, Y6 Hot, Y6 Power, and Y6 Sculpt & Flow. Classes are both heated and unheated.
"Whether the focus is on deep stretching, stress relief, mindful meditation or breaking a sweat, YogaSix provides a class to meet each need," they say in a release.
YogaSix offers drop-in rates and memberships, and for a limited time, “founding members” will receive 25 percent off the subscription price for life. That's $94.50 rather than the regular membership price of $126.
Founded in 2012 and now part of the Xponential Fitness brand, YogaSix currently has 50 locations and is expanding in major U.S. markets and internationally in 2020. In addition to the seven locations coming to Dallas-Fort Worth, the franchisee group has plans to bring at least nine more studios to the community, they say.
“With YogaSix already staking its claim as the fastest-growing boutique fitness concept in the nation, we are so excited to see local entrepreneurs bring a new concept to the Dallas-Fort Worth community,” says Lindsay Junk, president of YogaSix, in the release. “YogaSix will enhance the Dallas-Fort Worth yoga scene by providing a non-intimidating concept that can provide a workout for someone with years of yoga experience or someone who has never tried it before.”
