Sumits Yoga founder opens first Sumits Stretch

With more than 25 years of yoga experience, Sumit Banerjee saw a gap in the fitness market.

The owner of Sumits Yoga, 10050 N. Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale, has embarked on a new fitness journey — Sumits Stretch. The concept offers accessible and affordable assisted stretching. The first location recently opened inside Sumits Yoga Scottsdale, according to a release.

“Sumits Stretch is redefining the classic stretch. Combining traditional techniques with thorough body assessment, clients will experience a stretch like no other,” according to the release.

People are able to choose from a menu of options depending on their individual needs including Cyclist Stretch, Yogi Stretch and Senior Stretch. Sessions will last either 25 or 50 minutes.

“Each day the client lays on the table, they will feel a little different and no two stretch sessions are the same. An expert therapist will evaluate the client and customize a routine to meet that person’s individual needs,” according to the release.

“I think it’s great that we are seeing more boutique fitness locations around the Valley,” Mr. Banerjee said in the release.

“There are so many different options like Barre, HIIT, cycling and yoga. I really think it is inspiring people to become more healthy and active. The problem is, without proper stretch, you can’t truly reap the benefits of your workouts.”

Stretch therapists will combine Western myofascial therapy, Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation and acupressure, with the Eastern approach of Thai Stretch, according to the release.
