Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 12, 2012
Sunstone Yoga will celebrate their 10th anniversary this October. The standout studios, offering “body temperature” yoga, will kick-off their anniversary month by announcing special “birthday” membership incentives on the 1st and will continue the festivities by offering select Free Days of Yoga from October 20th-30th, as well as doling out prizes via social media and in-store events.
Founded in 2002 by Brandon Hartsell and Nicole Shaw, Sunstone Yoga is an innovator in the yoga industry. The two introduced a class series which centered on the ancient practice of yoga offered with the absence of eastern practices of meditation and taught through contemporary fitness-oriented instruction. As the concept took off, one class series evolved into five distinct offerings, and one location became 12 studios throughout North Texas and Austin. Today Sunstone Yoga offers in excess of 875 classes per week, and has seen over 130,000 students in their studios.
The company offers the highest quality instruction for individuals at any level of fitness. Their dedication to superior operations, facilities, innovation and customer support all make Sunstone Yoga a star, not only in the yoga community, but the in the fitness industry at large. All studios are well-lit with state-of-the-art heating systems, and each class temperature and humidity is carefully controlled, varying by series from 90-98.6 degrees. Studios provide students with complementary mat and towel service, separate changing areas, and triple filtered drinking water. The company works diligently to ensure that they are consistently improving not only their content and delivery, but also their understanding of their client’s needs.
“We have spent a significant amount of time developing our class series and defining the balance of our offerings. Our series offer a complete package of challenging full-body workouts, something that devotees of the brand can attest to. We are here to help people create change in their bodies, minds, and lives,” says CEO and founder Hartsell. The carefully devised curriculum is taught exclusively at Sunstone Yoga Academy, their 6,000sq.ft training facility in Addison, TX. Sunstone Yoga’s teachers, unlike many in the industry, must complete 500hrs of training, receiving certification through the brand’s program.
As the landmark anniversary approaches Sunstone Yoga is celebrating the extensive presence they have developed within Texas over the past ten years, but also what they are poised to accomplish in the future. Community outreach and support of local non-profits will remain a focus as will the development of partnerships within the fitness community. “It is our hope that we can continue to educate individuals, whether they practice yoga or not, that yoga is for everybody. It improves health and just makes you feel better,” says founder Shaw.
