History[edit]

Yogaworks was founded by two yoga teachers, Maty Ezraty and Chuck Miller.[3] Rosanna McCollough joined YogaWorks in February 2015 as President and Chief Operating Officer, initially managing studio operations, marketing, teacher training, MyYogaWorks.com, human resources and IT, before being promoted to President and Chief Executive Officer in June 2016.[4] In 2007 Yogaworks had 14 locations in the states of California and New York[5] and by 2008 the company had expanded to 21 yoga studios.[3] In 2014, the company and its 29 yoga studios were purchased by Great Hill Partners for $45 million.[6] As of 2017 the company had 66 yoga studios across the country.[2]
