The instructors at Atlanta Hot Yoga believe that “a yogini is a professional of the interior landscape, an expert conservationist of the vital life force, prana.” Throughout their variety of yoga classes, they strive to teach patrons of all skill levels how to channel this life force through concentrated breathing paired with inner- and outer- strength-cultivating poses. During the studio’s signature Hot class, students move through a blend of 34 poses inside a room heated to 103–105 degrees, which allows the body to sink deeper into stretches and to detoxify through sweat. Other classes, including Vinyasa Flow, power yoga, and Deep Slow Flow, surround patrons in less jungle-like temperatures, igniting mind and body transformation without the risk of entering a matter-transference chamber.

Through personal instruction and group classes in yoga, Pilates, and TRX suspension training, they share their dedication with students, building strong bodies while maintaining balance between body and mind. Stacked flagstone accent walls, hardwood floors, and creamy paint tones run throughout the studio, setting a comfortable and secluded scene in which students can release tension brought on by everyday tasks including evening commutes or morning jousts with the paperboy.
