Looking for a new way to relax, increase your energy levels, and boost creativity? Float OKC is the place for you! Discover the many benefits that float therapy bring through Float OKC.

Float OKC is widely known for its next-level relaxation, float therapy, and sensory deprivation. Floating is achieved while lying in highly concentrated salt water. Without the strain of gravity or pressure on many joints, muscles, or tendons, the myoskeletal system has a chance to relax and heal. The physical benefits of floating may include reduced joint, muscle, and nerve pain; more restful sleep; and more energy.

Floatation therapy is scientifically proven to provide numerous benefits for your mind, body, and overall well-being. There are many benefits to floating- mentally and physically!

From improved athletic recovery to relief from chronic pain and inflammation, to help with stress relief, to improvements with insomnia- the list of benefits is endless. Floaters enter the float pod and feel like it is one of the only places on earth where they can completely quiet the mind, shut out sensory distractions, and connect with themselves.

Benefits of Float OKC:

  1. Reduces stress and anxiety – The environment in the float tank deactivates parts of the brain responsible for stress and anxiety, which leaves you feeling calm, serene, and relaxed! 
  2. Helps with pain management – The weightlessness in the tank reduces stress and inflammation on muscles and joints. Floating lowers pain and very much helps with injury or post-workout recovery.
  3. Boosts creativity – The deep meditative (also known as theta wave) state does wonders for the mind! The effects of floating reduce stress, depression, and anxiety. The right side of the brain’s activity is boosted and can increase creativity and imagination.
  4. Improves sleep – The benefit of floating does not end when you exit the tank – with less pain and stress, you will naturally achieve deeper sleep. Floating will leave you feeling relaxed for several days after your float.

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.
