Millennium Partners Sports Club Management LLC today announced the opening of its dedicated Mind Body Studios in newly expanded space within The Sports Club/LA complexes in Boston and San Francisco this fall, complementing the Clubs' state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, extensive fitness options, existing Mind Body programming, and highly experienced fitness professionals. The Mind Body Studios in the two cities will offer Members the ability to integrate Yoga, Pilates, and Gyrotonic training into their fitness routine. An oasis within the Club, the Studios will offer a unique combination of serene and expansive studio rooms, an elite group of instructors, and access to nationally known Mind Body practitioners. 


The company will also expand its Mind Body programming in its four other affiliate Clubs, including The Sports Club/LA complexes in Washington D.C., Miami and New York's Upper East Side, as well as Reebok Sports Club/NY, in 2007.  Millennium Partners Sports Club Management LLC will debut its expanded Mind Body program at The Sports Club/LA San Francisco in mid-October when the Club unveils its 11,000 square foot Mind Body Studios. This initial launch will be followed by the opening of the 9,000 square foot Mind Body Studios at The Sports Club/LA Boston in early-November.  


The Sports Club/LA's expanded Mind Body program will give Members access to a wide array of classic and cutting-edge Yoga practices, such as Hatha, Vinyasa, and Ashtanga, among others, and a broad selection of Pilates and Gyrotonic classes. Members will be able to choose from an extensive Mind Body class schedule at no additional cost to their membership, and also have the option to participate in one-on-one and duet sessions for an additional fee. Numerous specialty classes, such as Budokon and BalleCore, will also be available regularly. Created by the city's top instructors, the robust Mind Body schedule was designed to ensure a variety of offerings during peak times and, also to appeal to varying levels, ages, and interests, helping every Member reaches his/her health and fitness goals. 


"Millennium Partners Sports Club Management is pleased to be able to build upon The Sports Club/LA's strong history of offering the finest in health and fitness," commented Art Curtis, Ph.D., CEO of Millennium Partners Sports Club Management LLC. "We are thrilled to introduce beautiful and dynamic Mind Body Studios in two markets this fall, as well as announce our expansion plans for next year," added Dr. Curtis. "With these exciting expansions, The Sports Club/LA aims to help Members integrate a true Mind Body experience, whether their preference is Yoga, Pilates, or Gyrotonics, into their existing health and fitness routine," added Dr. Curtis.


In The Sports Club/LA's tradition of providing five-star service, a Mind Body Concierge will be available at the Clubs this fall to help Members navigate every aspect of the revolutionary Mind Body program. Bringing extensive Mind Body knowledge, the Concierge will assist Members, new and experienced in the various practices, with their personal path to health and fitness by introducing them to the multiple practices, helping them choose an appropriate level and type of Yoga class, determining proper attire, and scheduling one-on-one instruction, among other responsibilities. In addition, the Concierge will expose Members to other areas of the Club, such as fitness, nutrition, and Splash Destination CitySpa, to complement their Mind Body practice(s).


Specifically designed for Yoga, Pilates and Gyrotonic practices, the newly constructed Mind Body studios will feature multiple studios named for the elements found in nature. The Mind Body Studios in Boston and San Francisco will include two spacious studios for Yoga and Pilates mat classes, one dedicated room with Pilates and Gyrotonics equipment, as well as numerous additional smaller rooms to allow for one-on-one instruction and duet classes. The largest studio in each Club will be named 'Fire' to signify more rigorous classes, such as Power Yoga, while the smaller studio, will be named 'Water', to denote restorative classes, such as Hatha Yoga. The Pilates and Gyrotonic room in each of the Studios will give Members access to an extensive array of state-of-the-art equipment including Reformers, Cadillacs, and Pulley Towers. The new spaces will feature warm, earth-tone hues, bamboo flooring, and will offer Members relaxed seating, additional lockers, soothing music, mat storage and complimentary herbal tea and flavored water to ensure the utmost comfort for Members. 


In addition to the extensive Mind Body class schedule, seminars, retreats, and specially designed semi-private workshops on Yoga, Pilates, and Gyrotonics will be offered regularly to ensure our Members attain desired results.

Semi-private, four-week workshops will be available at beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. Guests will have access to select seminars and retreats for a fee.  Nationally recognized Mind Body practitioners, such as Cameron Shayne, Kathy McNames, and Jill Miller are collaborating with The Sports Club/LA as advisors to the Club's newly expanded program. Along with the Club's experienced team of Mind Body practitioners, the advisors will lead the educational workshops for Members and guests. In addition, building on the tradition of The Sports Club/LA's strong educational offerings, the Advisory Board members will provide specialized training for the Club's instructors.
