Get sweaty this spring at Indy’s best hot yoga studios

More by this author

As more “trendy” workouts begin to take the main stage in Indy’s workout scene, hot yoga studios have blossomed and boomed for many looking to perfect their yoga practice and get their sweat on at the same time. Here are some of the city’s favorites:

The Yoga Studio: The welcoming, warmly-lit room greets yogis as they begin their journey at one of the many classes hosted by The Yoga Studio. With locations in Carmel and Borad Ripple, The Yoga Studio started in 2007 when founder Karen Fox decided to bring the unique concept of hot vinyasa yoga to the Indianapolis area. Framed around the idea of Ashtanga (mind and movement connection), The Yoga Studio holds a variety of class types for both newcomers and those looking to advance their practice.

“We pride ourselves in reaching as many people as we can and outreaching to the community of yoga in Indianapolis…We know Indy has so many yoga studios, and we are just grateful to be a part of that community,” said Tiffany Dinwiddie, co-owner and community outreach coordinator of The Yoga Studio.

The Hot Room: With an expanding network of locations across the Hoosier state, The Hot Room’s mission is best summed up in one word: community. Creating a safe space for people of all walks of life to move their bodies in a meaningful way is precisely the goal of owners Hye Jin and Ashish Kalgaonkar as they continue to expand beyond their four current Indiana locations. Offering hot yoga, heated fitness classes, and scheduled meditation times, the Hot Room’s yoga courses are designed to increase flexibility and transform your practice into your own personal flow.

YogaSix: With three woman-owned Indiana locations (Indianapolis near the Garage Food Hall, Carmel, and Fort Wayne), YogaSix creates a vibey, intense experience like no other. Offering five other types of classes aside from the traditional “hot” variety, YogaSix grounds their practice in being beginner-friendly and making fitness classes accessible for everyone. LED lights and catchy music accompany each flow as you move throughout the structure of the guided class. A practice centered around breathwork and energizing movements makes this version of hot yoga a must for those looking to get their sweat on.

“If you’re looking for a modern take on a typical yoga class, YogaSix would be a great fit…It truly feels like a community in the class,” said Amy Niehaus, who has been attending YogaSIx classes for four months.

HOTWORX: A 24-hour infrared virtual training facility, HOTWORX is unlike any other hot yoga class in the city. Creating a heated environment to encourage detoxification, the class sizes can accommodate up to three members at a time and range in time from 15-30 minutes each. Members of any of the four central Indy locations can access the studio at any time and take advantage of the FX studio, an area equipped with bands, weights, and other equipment to supplement the shorter class times. Instructors are all virtual, streaming instructions to the class inside the sauna workout areas. Different from the traditional vinyasa practiced at other studios around the city, HOTWORX is a modern approach to anyone looking for a quick fix.

Fountain Square Yoga: A shared space located in the heart of Fletcher Place, Fountain Square Yoga offers a wide array of classes catering to those looking for smaller class sizes and a more intimate setting for their practice. Aimed at reducing the strain put on muscles during yoga flow, the heated vinyasa sessions at Fountain Square yoga offer a revitalizing and rejuvenating version of hot yoga.  Consistently hosting workshops, private yoga, and community events, Fountain Square Yoga offers unlimited memberships to those who like to practice several times per week, and drop-in pricing for occasional namastes.
