If you grew up believing heat made every activity better (Monopoly, one-handed basketball, sitting near a fire, etc.), then today's Groupon may be just hot enough: for $30, you get a five-pack of classes (an $80 value) at Urban Yoga Spa.
With Urban Yoga Spa’s convenient downtown location, students can save their strength for its two pristine studios—one heated to 100 degrees, one to 90 degrees—where tension, anxiety, and cares melt out through the pores, down the legs, and out the bottom of any well-ventilated shoes. The health benefits of yoga are well known: regular practice increases strength and flexibility while eliminating stress and uniting body and mind. Hot yoga ups the ante, detoxifying the body while keeping the muscles warm and limber. Urban Yoga Spa offers hot Hatha, power Vinyasa, and restorative yoga classes taught by experienced instructors who both encourage and challenge students of any level, from novice yogis to regular practitioners.
Urban Yoga Spa was founded by Kathy Ferguson to serve as a tranquil oasis from the pressures of urban life. The sleek, minimal studios and spa occupy two floors of the historic building on the corner of 4th Avenue and Stewart. Check the schedule for class times.
- The rooms are blissfully clean and stink-free (a big deal when it’s this hot). An awesome workout and personal pampering in a Zen environment—it adds up to a picture of health nestled in the downtown core. – Brangien Davis, Seattle
- Everyone here, from staff to instructors to other yoga-goers, is very friendly and welcoming, something I haven't experienced at other yoga studios in three and a half years of practice. – Hannah L., Yelp
- WOW was I impressed. A) The staff was far from the snooty yoga-ites I've run into at other studios. B) They were beyond understanding and accommodating to my lack of experience! – Malia M., Yelp
Urban Yoga Spa
Clients stepping into Urban Yoga Spa— with its rows of candle votives and futuristic white decor—may feel as if they’ve entered a meditation chamber in the twenty-third century. Designed by award-winning architects, the minimalist decor aims for a specific effect; the intentional absence of color evokes the look of a blank canvas or Ted Turner’s worst nightmare, helping clients to clear their minds during intense yoga sessions led by skilled instructors. Hot Hatha and power Vinyasa classes held seven days a week help inspire practitioners to find the serenity in a challenging series of poses. Meanwhile, the spa’s aestheticians pamper newly toned bodies with massages, nail treatments, acupuncture, and waxings.
