Denver-based CorePower Yoga to open first studio in New York City

CorePower Yoga is looking to whip the Big Apple into shape.

The Denver-based yoga chain will open its first New York City studio in early 2017, marking CorePower’s first foray into the Tri-State area, the company announced Wednesday.

“We are inspired by the incredible vibrancy of New York City and cannot wait to offer CorePower’s uniquely intense and mindful workout to New Yorkers,” CEO Eric Kufel said in a statement. “Manhattanites live crazy-busy lives that make it challenging to fit in meaningful time for themselves. With CorePower Yoga, they’ll get a workout that is both physical and mental — not to mention a convenient studio location and full amenities — all in one efficient hour.”

CorePower got its start in Denver in 2002, opening its first yoga studio at 13th Avenue and Grant Street in Capitol Hill. Today, the company — known for its workout-centric, sweat-inducing approach to yoga — has more than 150 studio locations in 19 states  and the District of Columbia. Its corporate headquarters are located inside the Industry development in Denver’s River North Art District.

In 2015, company founder Trevor Tice told a national business publication that he envisioned the company eventually going public and operating more than 500 studios nationwide.

The 4,108-square-foot New York studio will be located at 2030 Broadway on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The studio will have two practice rooms, in addition to a full retail boutique, and changing rooms with showers and private lockers.
