DENVER, July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CorePower Yoga, the fastest growing yoga studio operator in the U.S., today announced a capital investment by Catterton Partners, the leading consumer-focused private equity firm.  The investment will be used to accelerate CorePower Yoga's growth and expansion.  Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

With over 80 studios in 12 states, CorePower Yoga is the nation's largest operator of company-owned yoga studios.  CorePower Yoga's unique style of heated power yoga is physically challenging and combines energy, music, movement and community to create a differentiated yoga experience.  The Company's mission is to "share our authentic passion for yoga and healthy living to inspire everyone to live their most extraordinary life."  CorePower Yoga strives to make yoga physically challenging yet accessible to everyone through a variety of yoga styles and a wide range of classes for all levels, such as Hot Power Fusion and Yoga Sculpt, offered at convenient times.  The recognized leader in yoga teacher certification, CorePower Yoga graduates more than 2,000 teachers annually from its 200-hour level one training.  The studios also offer lifestyle programs such as BootCamp to boost fitness and metabolism and a Wellness Cleanse to teach long-term healthy eating and living.  CorePower Yoga's studios offer a premium experience with attractive yoga rooms, a full retail boutique, and spa-like amenities including changing rooms with showers and private lockers.

CorePower Yoga was founded in 2002 by Trevor Tice, a successful entrepreneur who turned to yoga for its health benefits after a climbing injury.  Under his leadership, the Company has experienced dramatic growth, having tripled its studio base over the last five years.  The CorePower Yoga team led by Mr. Tice, Chief Executive Officer, and Chad Kilpatrick, President and Chief Financial Officer, will continue to lead the Company and will seek to further CorePower Yoga's goal of bringing yoga to everyone by leveraging the financial and strategic resources and deep retail expertise of Catterton.

"Yoga continues to experience growing adoption and is one of the fastest growing segments within fitness.  As the leading and most expansive yoga studio brand, CorePower Yoga is well-positioned for continued success in this large and fragmented growth market," said Marc Magliacano, a Partner at Catterton.  "CorePower Yoga brings yoga and fitness together, with the most experienced and credentialed instructors who offer a consistent experience and a wide range of classes for students of all levels across studios nationwide.  We look forward to partnering with the talented team at CorePower Yoga to realize the tremendous vision for this Company."
