Big Yoga, one of Houston’s largest yoga communities, has announced that its second location will be located in the Memorial area, just outside the loop. The new studio will be located at 1014 Wirt Road, Suite 290 at the Shoppes at Memorial Villages and is expected to start welcoming yogis just after the New Year.
The flagship studio in the Montrose neighborhood, on Allen Parkway, has grown to include more than 1,450 members over the last four years since its opening. At Big Yoga, Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga is practiced and taught with the majority of classes held in a heated room. Classes are intended for all yoga practitioners, from first timers to experienced yogis. The abundance of classes, beginning at 5:30 am with the final weeknight class beginning at 10 pm, and the two studio rooms allow for a large volume of yogis to practice each day.
The continued growth of the Houston area and the popularity of yoga have made expansion a logical next step for Big Yoga. The location was strategically chosen to reach the existing demographic at the Montrose studio as well as a new community outside the loop.
“At Big Yoga, our mission is to empower as many people as possible to live their biggest lives possible,” said Nancy Sheridan Perry, co-owner of Big Yoga. “We’re so excited to be expanding our inspiring and fun community to the Memorial area. It’s a great space and the location is perfect for a yoga studio!”
Big Yoga Memorial will feature many of the elements present at Big Yoga Montrose including two heat controlled studios, a yoga retail store, Kids Yoga studio and a Big & Juicy Juice Bar. The new 8,000 square foot location will also have an exterior patio and locker rooms complete with showers and changing rooms for commuters.
“One of the things we’re most excited about at this location is being able to provide a more extensive Kids Yoga program,” said Laura Calcaterra co-owner of Big Yoga. “Our goal is to be family friendly and accessible to inspire and empower as many kids and parents as possible!”
Like its sister studio, Big Yoga Memorial will also be active in its community–from hosting yoga classes around the neighborhood to its monthly Give Big Donation classes benefitting local charities.
