A yoga mogul with studios across the country was found mysteriously dead in his Southern California home.
Trevor Tice, the founder and former CEO of CorePower Yoga, was discovered Monday afternoon local time after officers were called to his mansion in San Diego, according to police.
Police said that there were “suspicious circumstances” surrounding the death, but did not elaborate what is thought to have caused it.
Lt. Mike Holden told TOT News Tuesday that Tice, 48, is believed to have been living in the home by himself, and that someone who knew him called for a welfare check.
He said that an autopsy will determine whether the death was a homicide in the next day.
Real estate records show that Tice bought the home, a 9,361 square foot property with views of the ocean, for $3 million in January.
Denver-based CorePower Yoga runs more than 150 studios in cities throughout the U.S., and announced in August that it would open its first New York City location on the Upper West Side in early 2017.
Tice says that he founded the company, which includes many hot yoga classes and wellness cleanses, in 2002 after beginning yoga after he suffered a mountain climbing accident and could no longer run.
CorePower Yoga said in a statement Tuesday evening that the entrepreneur had “boundless energy, an electric smile an immutable desire to improve.”
A spokeswoman for the company said they had no further details about his death.
Before getting into the yoga business, Tice owned a IT company called TechPartners International, which he sold for $60 million in 2001.
