YogaSix, a growing chain of yoga studios, is opening its first Long Island location.
Long Island’s first YogaSix is opening in an 1,846-square-foot retail space in The Shoppes at Country Pointe at 1481 Old Country Road in Plainview on Friday.
Franchisee Jessica Jackson is the owner and operator of the new Plainview YogaSix. Jackson, from Dix Hills, was a stay-at-home mom of three children when she was looking to do something on her own and found YogaSix by accident.
“I took a class at one of their studios in Eastchester,” she told LIBN. “I love the ease and accessibility of all levels of yoga, and I really wanted to bring that to my community.”
Jackson said many Long Island yoga studios closed because of the COVID pandemic, and she felt that left a void for YogaSix to fill and meet a strong demand for the concept.
“A lot of people are interested in yoga, but they are intimidated,” she said. “The Y6 format is so welcoming to both newbies and experienced yogis.”
Various yoga classes are offered at YogaSix to encompass everything from deep stretching to stress relief to high-intensity training. The studio offers six core formats – Y6 101, Y6 Restore, Y6 Slow Flow, Y6 Hot, Y6 Power, and Y6 Sculpt & Flow – and each class caters to varied fitness levels and aims to strengthen the mind-body connection.
YogaSix offers monthly memberships with unlimited classes, and it also welcomes walk-ins. The Plainview studio is holding a three-day grand opening celebration on Friday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Nov. 12 featuring giveaways, raffles, local vendor showcases, free classes and champagne.
The all-in cost to open a YogaSix studio ranges from $294,836 to $499,236, according to the company’s franchise information. YogaSix is one of 10 fitness brands under the Xponential Fitness umbrella, which includes Stretch Lab, Club Pilates, Rumble, Pure Barre, BFT, Cyclebar and more.
Jackson is supported in her new venture by her husband Andrew Jackson, who owns an IT firm serving business clients throughout the area. She has a four-studio franchise deal and is planning to open future YogaSix studios in three other Nassau County communities.
The YogaSix chain is in the midst of a major area expansion. Seven more YogaSix studios are in development on Long Island with two other franchisees.
