Posted by:

WACO, TEXAS (September 24, 2015) – Yoga Pod, a fast growing health and wellness company based in Boulder, Colorado, is paving the way in offering a safe and nurturing environment where students can practice yoga under the care and instruction of the best teachers while cultivating the transformational power of community.




Yoga Pod CEO, Nicole Wienholt, announced that Yoga Pod will be expanding to Waco, Texas, in late Winter 2015.


Yoga Pod Waco will offer over 60 classes each week in a state of the art, 3500 square foot, spa-like studio. Students can choose to FLOW with incredible Vinyasa classes, TONE with Yoga Pod’s signature YogaTone or PodBarre, or DETOX with epic HOT Yoga. Yoga Pod will also be the first studio in Waco to offer infrared heat and humidity for hot yoga classes.




In addition to offering the best yoga classes, Yoga Pod Waco will offer its acclaimed 200-hour, Yoga Alliance-certified Teacher Training programs for aspiring yoga instructors in Central Texas through Yoga Pod University.


Yoga Pod Waco is offering a limited number of Charter Memberships at $79 per month prior to opening, which include benefits such as unlimited yoga, guest passes, discounted retail and priority check-in. Visit our website to reserve your spot today!


The studio will be locally owned and operated by local fitness expert and Registered Yoga Alliance Instructor Amy Tarter, who is both a Baylor graduate and Baylor adjunct professor. Amy commented, “I’m excited to open Yoga Pod Waco to share my love of yoga with Central Texas. I believe it’s important for this community to enjoy the benefits of yoga in a beautiful and loving space.”



Amy’s business partner, Don Moes, has been instrumental in bringing Yoga Pod to Waco. Don previously owned Equipment Depot and was the Mayor for Woodway. Don stated, “My personal experience with yoga is the reason I am so excited about this venture.”


Yoga Pod Headquarters and original studio is located in Boulder, Colorado and has a strong reputation for high quality yoga instruction and expressed core values of Community, Authenticity, Diversity, Excellence, Abundance, Love and Fun!


The Yoga Pod franchise model is the brainchild of husband and wife team, Nicole and Gerry Wienholt, both yoga instructors as well as experienced franchise owners. When asked about their franchise model and plan, Gerry commented, “The opening of our second Texas location represents a dream come true for us. It is the continuation of our growth plans to bring Yoga Pod to every major city in America!” Our partnerships with studio owners such as Amy Tarter who love people, yoga and business are the key to our success. Spreading the love of yoga and doing so with a heart of love and authenticity is what motivates us every day.”
