Bikram Yoga Lease Heats Up Overton Square
Bikram Yoga Memphis owners Christine Boyer and Isaac Christopherhave signed a lease to open a new studio at Overton Square, pushing occupancy at the revived district close to 80 percent.
Boyer and Christopher signed a 3,500-square-foot lease on the second floor of the building that formerly housed the ice-skating rink and Palm Court Restaurant, joining Cardio Barre.
“Bikram is exactly the type of established destination tenant we wanted for the second floor of the old Palm Court building,” said Aaron Petree, vice president of brokerage for Loeb Properties. “They will be a great complement to the existing tenants and will offer Overton Square patrons another option for healthy living.”
Bikram Yoga Memphis opened in 2005 on Sanderlin Center in East Memphis. Opening a new location at Overton Square, which will be called Bikram Hot Yoga Memphis, will help the company reach a much wider audience, Christopher said. The new location is expected to open this winter.
Bikram Yoga uses heat and 26 different poses to work every part of the body.
The hot yoga room will use an advanced heating system with fresh air circulation, and the flooring will be built with closed-cell, anti-microbial technology.
In addition to yoga, Bikram Hot Yoga Memphis will offer deep tissue and sports massage therapy, Ayurvedic therapies, education and private consultations.
The Bikram Hot Yoga Memphis lease brings occupancy at Overton Square to 78 percent.
