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.

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.
