Thrive Studio, a ?tness studio and boutique located in Chattanooga’s North Shore, has named Kyle House to the newly created position of director of yoga. The move was made to help meet the needs of the studio’s emerging yoga following. 

"Kyle’s deep understanding and love of yoga embodies the very spirit of the practice,” said Anna Mercer, co-owner and director of Fitness for Thrive Studio. “We will work closely to create new workshops, hire the best instructors and continue to evolve and energize our yoga offerings. Kyle is the perfect person to lead the future of yoga at our studio.” 

A YogaWorks registered yoga teacher (RYT 200), Mr. House holds multiple certi?cations including International Sports Sciences Association Personal Trainer, ISSA Specialist in Sports Nutrition, Spinning Instructor, and Aerobics and Fitness Association of America Group Exercise Instructor. In addition to today’s announcement, Kyle will continue teaching yoga, RealRyder spin classes and serving clients as a personal trainer at Thrive Studio. 

“This is an amazing opportunity for me to help others understand and strengthen their yoga practice,” Mr. House noted. “Health is the greatest gift we can give ourselves and its our goal to share that gift with Chattanooga. I look forward to helping Thrive deliver on its mission of promoting healthy bodies and happy minds.” 

Mr. House will be teaching a Fundamentals of Yoga workshop for four Saturdays beginning on April 5 from noon to 2 p.m. Each workshop will focus on a different aspect of yoga practice and introduce various poses. Class size will be limited to 15 so that each person leaves with as much individual instruction as needed, officials said. For more information and to register contact Thrive Studio at 800-0676. 

In addition to new classes and workshops the studio space itself is in the process of being remodeled. “We want to invite anyone interested to come in and check out our offerings. What I love about yoga is that we really can offer something for everyone. I am excited to create programs for those curious about yoga as well as helping long time practitioners,” concluded Mr. House.
