YogaWorks pointed to Baltimore’s place as yoga stretches into more daily lifestyles nationwide, including a Forbes ranking of the city as the sixth fastest growing yoga market. Last year, Charm City Yoga opened a giant new spot in Federal Hill.

YogaWorks also has locations in New York and Boston, and also plans to open in D.C.

The acquisition means a new chapter for Kim Manfredi and Chris Blades, who founded Charm City Yoga in 2000. Manfredi will remain a yoga teacher and trainer post-deal. YogaWorks said the current teachers and staff would also be retained.
