In need of some relaxation and peace after the past few months? Two new businesses in Westchase are here to help.
Located in the Westchase Town Center, Spa Zen Aura opened its doors for the first time Feb. 1 and reopened mid-May with COVID-19 precautions in place. Spa Zen Aura offers massages, facials, body exfoliation scrubs and waxing services.
“Although we have moved to Westchase recently, we have already been an established business for the last four years,” said owner Jesyka Gonzalez. “We have always had a five-star reputation because we hire staff members who are experienced, knowledgeable and love what they do. We pride ourselves in giving the best customized session to each and every client, to make their experience as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. Westchase is such a lovely community that really supports their small businesses. We love the plaza we are in due to the walk by traffic and we are excited to be a part of such a great community.”
At the other end of West Park Village and opening later this month, YogaSix will offer six different types of yoga classes, including hot, mindful, beginner and sculpting. “Our teachers are all trained from the ground up using our Y6 language formula so that each client gets a consistent yoga experience each and every time they take a Y6 class,” YogaSix owner Sandey Goodman said. “The Y6 program is centered around our six core classes: Y6 101, Slow Flow, Restore, Sculpt & Flow, Power and Hot. Each one offers a different multi-sensory experience which allows our members to have a lot more options than a traditional yoga studio.”
Goodman added, “We also have installed a proprietary heating element that is customized for each class. The amount of heat and humidity is altered to fit the session and enhance the experience. To enhance the session further, we also use lighting and music, which change based on the intensity of the workout. The end result is that you leave feeling empowered and energized.”
Goodman said that before quarantine, YogaSix was offering yoga in the park sessions in the West Park Village open space and that she hopes they will be able to begin those again.
YogaSix will be putting precautions in place based on corporate, state and CDC recommendations. One of those is a smaller class size than normal so Goodman suggests that interested yogis call in advance to reserve a spot.
