Trevor Tice, founder and former CEO of CorePower Yoga, was found dead in his Southern California mansion, on Monday. While police did not elaborate, they said there were “suspicious circumstances” surrounding his death. An autopsy will determine the cause of death. It is believed that Tice, 48, was living in the home alone and that someone who knew him called to check in on him.

Real estate records show that Tice bought the home in January for $3 million dollars. The 9,361 square foot property has views of the ocean.

In 2002, Tice founded CorePower Yoga after suffering a mountain climbing accident that left him unable to run. When Yoga changed his life, he decided to spread the message.

Before beginning the company, Tice owned TechPartners International, an IT company he sold in 2001 for $60 million.

The Denver-based company has more than 150 studios in cities around the U.S., and plans to open its first New York City location on the Upper West Side in early 2017.
