Discover Yoga



 Yoga Hot Spot & COVID-19 

Yoga Community,
We are in full swing on our virtual yoga classes. We still have a full schedule minus 5:30am (I guess some of you want to sleep in). Seeing all your faces on the screen is bringing us so much joy and encouragement. 52 of you signed up for the 30 Day Challenge. This has to be a record. We love interacting with you as we stream from our homes. We are enjoying meeting your kids, your dogs and cats, and seeing the space you have created at home. This would never have been possible had it not been for this crisis. We are making the best of it, but we know many of you are struggling during this uncertain time. Remember the translation of yoga is UNION.  We are still connected whether in the studio or online.  If you are not up for practicing right now, we understand but we hope you can feel the love we are sending out to you and your families.  
Continue to practice yoga and meditation with us or on your own to maintain your physical and mental health.  We are all in this together, and look forward to seeing you online, until we reunite in the studio again soon.  Keep watching MINDBODY schedule to see new classes we are offering, like “family yoga” coming soon. For instructions on livestream click below. I promise it is very simple.
We will get through this. We are yoga strong.
~Choose LOVE not fear~  
Stephanie, Scotty, and Hot Spot Family




Our Current Classes


A traditional all-level class offering balance of breath (pranayama), posture (asana), and meditation (dyana), with the goal of bringing about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind. The practice is performed in specific order and is focused on the classic 26 postures, building strength, balance, and flexibility.



An ambitious yoga class that will have you moving, breathing, and sweating. Sequences focus on building strength and flexibility in the mind, body, and spirit and include sun salutations, balancing, back bending, and inversions.


A warm, restorative class performed on the mat with gentle lighting, music, and instruction promoting relaxation and rejuvenation. Long-held stretching poses work deep connective tissue, ligaments, tendons, and joints. A great compliment to other forms of yoga or the rigors of daily life.



This is a non-heated class. It is the original Vinyasa style of yoga. It is the root of all breath-based classes. There is a coordinated sequence of Vinyasa (counts) synchronized with the breath, with Sun Salutations, Standing and Seated postures. The ultimate purpose of the Ashtanga practice is purification of the body and mind. By moving quickly and powerfully, and breathing deeply you will begin to evolve past the asana and tap into what is known as “a state of yoga”. Pattabhi Jois said “Just do your practice and all is coming”.

Frequently Asked Questions

The First Class

When do I arrive?

Arrive 15 minutes early for your first class, this allows plenty of time for registration and orientation.

What if I have never taken a yoga class before?

All of our Hot Yoga classes are appropriate for beginners.  The asanas (yoga postures) are set for all classes so if you miss something the first time you’ll have many more opportunities to perfect the postures.

What do I wear?


  • Shorts that are above the knee or yoga pants.
  • Typical yoga tops, sports bra.


  • Nylon shorts, yoga shorts or board shorts and t-shirt
  • Please no underwear or boxers.  Shirts are optional.
What do I bring to my first class?
  • You’ll need a large towel, yoga mat, and a bottle of water.  If you forget we have all three for rent or purchase.
  • Come to class with a positive, open attitude.
  • A positive outlook does wonders for your yoga practice.  As a newcomer you have the advantage of an unbiased eager perspective.
What about the heat?

It is hot, so be sure to come to class well hydrated.  If you are feeling dizzy, just lay down until you are feeling better.  Its best if you do not leave the room so that you do  not distract others during their practice.
