The boutique fitness brand is seeing unprecedented levels of demand, opening 56 new studios since the beginning of 2020.
YogaSix, part of the Xponential Fitness family of boutique fitness franchise brands, has opened its 100th yoga studio despite the challenges of the pandemic – especially with relation to the health and fitness industry, which has seen many closures elsewhere.
The brand has also signed over 500 franchise agreements, and opened 56 new studios since the beginning of 2020. Recent agreements will see new YogaSix locations soon open in Houston, Nashville, Las Vegas, Seattle, and Miami.
“While yoga has always been popular, the pandemic and other challenges brought on by 2020 have certainly exacerbated the demand for YogaSix’s inclusive and modern take on the practice,” said Lindsay Junk, president of YogaSix.
“It has been exciting and extremely rewarding to see our franchise partners get creative in the face of adversity over the past year, encouraging several new entrepreneurs to join the YogaSix family and continue our yoga revival around the world.”
The 100th studio is owned by Jarrid and Krissy Danburg, and marks their first of three studios in the Pittsburgh area. Krissy, a Pittsburgh native and recently certified yoga instructor has worked 14 years in digital marketing, while Jarrid has over 18 years of professional experience in the NFL and sports and wellness space.
YogaSix has also developed its international presence over the past year, including the opening of its first Saudi Arabian studio in September 2020.
