Hot Spot Yoga
From the very beginning, Hot Spot Yoga has operated under the conscious decision to ban mirrors from the practice room. Without them, students would be less likely to distract themselves by comparing their progress to that of others. The two tenets embodied in that rationale—concentration and non-competition—are central to Hot Spot Yoga. In addition to banishing mirrors in their yoga rooms, they flout traditional hierarchy in favor of Vinyasa classes that remain open to all levels. As such, the studio doesn't embrace labels like "beginner," "intermediate," or "advanced," but a class structure that modifies poses according to each student's comfort level and ability.
Though the studio’s classes may be welcoming, they’re still challenging. Up to 100 degrees of heat force students to test their physical limits as instructors flow swiftly through sustained poses. With hundreds of Vinyasa poses to choose from, instructors make sure to never repeat and to take suggestions from students who wish to experiment with a new pose. They’re also happy to just let students sit and meditate on the view from the studio’s window, which looks out on distant skyscrapers and a canal filled with bathing Godzillas.
