The beauty of the yoga community is that you don’t have to be an expert to benefit from it. At YogaSix located in Chisholm Creek OKC and Nichols Hills, there is a class for everyone, with six core courses offering a specific focus and different body benefits in each. “It’s a communal experience,” Amy Smith Sewell, owner of YogaSix, says. 

Sewell has simple advice for first-time yoga goers, “Just show up. Then keep coming.” She goes on to say it’s about consistency. “If there’s a day you aren’t feeling your best or feel like not being seen, those are the most important days to show up.” 

After seeing success in Chisholm Creek OKC studio, YogaSix recently expanded into the Nichols Hills area. As you enter the studio, you’ll notice the minimalistic style with white walls and simple flooring and lighting. The team wanted to create an inviting space that “screams self-care.” To promote inclusivity and not limit the studio to members only, they offer one-time visits, class packs, and unlimited classes.

Before opening the Chisholm Creek OKC studio, Sewell knew she wanted to do something rewarding to build a sense of community. She liked the concept of yoga being available for all and wanted to create a studio that isn’t intimidating with the traditional linear aspect of chanting and Sanskrit words. They take more of a tantric perspective that you’re perfect the way you are. “In each moment in liberation, you have connectedness and can align with yourself,” Sewell states. Katie Kanak, a lead teacher, says, “The teachers are offered free yoga alliance monthly certified training and are required to hit quarterly goals. She feels that they have created an environment at the Chisholm Creek OKC and Nichols Hills studios where their students feel their teachers’ evolution. 

The long-term vision is to keep building a yoga community atmosphere with excellent programs and opportunities and continue to change lives with the power of the yoga they all practice in their daily lives. “It’s a simple plan, just be there to allow people to find an hour of calm in their week to be in their body on their mat and breathe,” Kanak says. 

If you’re interested in taking a class at YogaSix, here’s what to expect in each course:

101: Prepare to slow down and hone in on the foundation and refinement of alignment at a nice, cozy temperature of 80 or 85 degrees.

Slow Flow: Although this one is a slow burn, it’s by no means easy. It starts as a mindful sequencing or flow and then transitions into a power class at 95 to 100 degrees.

Hot Sequence: This is the signature set sequence, being a blend between the Bikram and Ashtanga sequences.

Power: Classes are heated, strength-building, full-body blasts designed to build focus, endurance, and flexibility.

Sculpt and Flow: Brings the best of both worlds of lifting weights and internal training cardio and cooling down with yoga.

Restore: A chill, Zen class where you can hold postures for more extended periods and focus on breathing.
