Yoga Six acquires Sculpt Fusion, opens refreshed studio

Yoga Six is now open at Torrey Hills Center.

Yoga Six recently unveiled its newest location in Torrey Hills Center in Carmel Valley, with a grand opening celebration at the studio on May 19.

The studio, formerly Sculpt Fusion Yoga founded by Kim Stahler nine years ago, was acquired by the national brand Yoga Six as part of its expansion efforts. Yoga Six has 12 locations in six cities nationwide including five in San Diego.

Dustin Towery, vice president of marketing for Yoga Six, said they recognized right away that Sculpt Fusion had created something very special and had become an important part of the community— they wanted to make sure the transition went smoothly as well as incorporate some of the things that made Sculpt Fusion a success. Stahler remains as the studio’s manager and the majority of teachers have stayed as well.

When Yoga Six acquired the location it went through a complete remodel in Yoga Six’s branded “light, bright and modern” spa-like look—they also added upgraded the locker rooms and bathrooms, adding a new shower.

“The cool thing about Yoga Six Is that it feels like a spa and it’s really welcoming,” Towery said. “We definitely want to make yoga accessible to everyone.”

With the new ownership they have added in Yoga Six’s class offerings that include Hot Yoga, Vinyasa, Deep Stretch restorative yoga and the new Y6 Sculpt, a hybrid class that features a low-impact weight training circuit.

For most classes the room is heated to 80 degrees or more although there are also unheated options.

“Every studio is a little different, all have Y6 Sculpt but Carmel Valley is the only one with Hot Bootcamp,” Towery said. Hot Bootcamp was one of Sculpt Fusion’s most popular classes, an intense, cross training workout using dumbbells, blocks and body weight exercises in a room heated at 99 to 102 degrees. Yoga Six also kept Sculpt Fusion’s Buddhy Burn, a workout tailored exclusively to benefit the booty using a fusion of sculpt, barre, pilates and yoga postures.

Yoga Six has classes from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and caters to all ages. Free outdoor yoga classes are offered every Saturday morning in June at 9:30 a.m.

“Yoga Six is all about balance,” Towery said, noting that the practice of yoga can help align all facets of your life and help you connect to your body in a way that is energizing and fun.

Yoga Six’s hexagon logo and the six in its name represents the multi-dimensional results of a consistent yoga practice: stronger, leaner, clearer, calmer, braver and further.
