To foster a thoughtful yoga community dedicated to providing a positive transformation in body, mind and spirit.



The Yoga Loft was founded in 2007 by locals Laurel and Randy Sigler. The Sigler’s began their health & fitness careers in the early ’90s when they bought Phoenix Fitness - a full-service fitness center in Marblehead.  

After several years and the birth of their second child, they sold the gym. They always missed the daily interactions and friendships they had enjoyed during their time there. Feeling the need for a dedicated yoga studio in Marblehead, they sought out space and began a complete renovation. In April of 2007, The Yoga Loft opened its doors, and the groundwork for a new yoga community began. Originally intended to be a hot power studio, it slowly morphed into a more diverse population with offerings to match.  

Starting from humble beginnings, with a clipboard sign-in sheet and an antique kitchen table for a desk, the studio swiftly built a dedicated following and cherished connections. The Yoga Loft expanded its schedule, added wonderful new teachers, a wide variety of workshops and a successful Teacher Training program.

As the Sigler's children graduated from college, there became a desire to transition to the next phase of their life. They were thrilled to “pass the torch” to long-time family friend Julie Helmes, who had worked at the studio years prior. With her expertise, background, and passion, they are excited to see what the future holds for The Yoga Loft.
