about Our Studio

The Hot Spot began as a pipe dream in 2011--opening in August in the basement of Signature Fitness with a single renovated room and 3 classes a week. Over the next 6 years we grew (slowly but surely), spreading the joy and love of real, authentic Bikram Yoga throughout Kingston and the greater mid-Hudson valley.

In 2017 we moved operations into a beautiful new location in the Kingston Plaza--complete with state-of-the-art heating and fresh air systems, Zebra flooring, full bathrooms with showers, and a yoga boutique. Our community is welcoming and supportive, our teachers are knowledgeable and compassionate, and our students are simply the best darn people you will ever meet. We have expanded the class offerings to include Warm and Hot Gentle Yoga, Hot Power 50, and Warm Vinyasa.

Our philosophy is that yoga is for EVERYONE--as Bikram likes to say, it is never too late; you are never too old, never too sick, to start from scratch once again. Hot yoga is challenging for everyone, it is hard work for everyone, and the benefits of this practice are for everyone! Don’t be afraid to give it a try--we are all here to support you, as you discover the wonderful gift of this yoga. We are located on the Hannaford end of the Plaza, right next door to Edible Arrangements, and a few doors down from Chic's.
