Our Late Nite yoga class & toast is an NYE tradition, and this year is no different!
(Ok, it's a little different 🤷♀️)
Because it's online and you can join us from anywhere.
Ring in the new year with us and start 2021 feeling like a zillion bucks- instead of feeling like 💩
It's that time of year again:
Time... for being bombarded by "new year, new you" marketing! (Yawn)
And also: wtf. This year has been hard enough without buying into the idea that we are somehow less-than and require reinventing in order to be worthy of love!
Instead of trying to become a whole new person, what if we tapped into more of who we really are?
Our 2021 "New Year, More You" challenge is themed around connecting daily with 2 most important, accessible and yet oft-neglected aspects of being YOU:
Your breath, and your spine!
This challenge is FREE (though you will need a membership at Homehotyoga.com in order to access some of the activities)
So you can start the new year feeling good in your body, and great about who you are.
For so many people, a surprising blessing of this year has been the discovery that a Bikram Yoga practice is entirely portable.
Every time you get on your mat at home, you remind yourself that, no matter how much else has changed, you hold the keys to your physical and mental wellbeing.
Regardless of access to a hot room.

We've worked hard this year to keep Home going, guided by our vision of happy, healthy people lovingly connected to themselves, each other and the world.
In order to continue, the time has come for us to stop paying rent and expenses on a studio we are not allowed to fill.
Only when we do that, can we focus our energy and resources on connecting you with the benefits of Bikram Yoga and a yoga community, in the place where it needs to happen for now: the interwebs!
That's why Home Hot Yoga will not be reopening our brick and mortar location after the current shutdown.
Instead, we will keep our classes and community completely online.
Practicing Bikram Yoga, we've learned to try the right way- even when it's hard.
We know this way is right. And it is definitely hard, because it involves letting go of a place which has brought us so much happiness.
So we are giving ourselves permission to be sad. Please also give yourself permission to be sad. This is sad!
And it will be OK.
Your yoga practice doesn’t depend on a hot room.
The skills you’ve learned are yours to keep forever.
The friends you made at yoga are still your friends.
Home is wherever you are.
We know you may have questions! Click here for FAQ, and of course feel free to reach out if there’s anything else you’d like to know.
We miss you.
We love you.
And we’ll see you soon- online!
September is Yoga Awareness Month.
(Were you aware?)
When you’re doing yoga on your own...
It’s easy to get distracted, lose sight of your goals, or forget why you even DO yoga anyway. Before you know it, the healthy habit that makes your body feel so good and your mind feel so calm-- has become something you don’t prioritize, but only do when there’s nothing else going on.
You’re not alone.
Lots of yogis started out this spring with a bang. They were taking Zoom classes multiple times a week, or getting up early to sweat with a recording before the kids were awake.
Lately though, their practice is inconsistent- or maybe even non-existent!
Here’s the truth:
The best way to break the cycle of NOT doing yoga is... to do some yoga.
Your yoga practice should be flexible (pun intended) and possible to implement consistently in your life. An "all or nothing" approach is SO last year.
Join us for a 30 Day Challenge during Yoga Awareness Month, and get aware of how simple it can be to fit some yoga into your life, every day!
CLICK HERE to get your FREE challenge calendar!
So you can start feeling in charge of your health and absolutely loving your life, instead of just going through the motions.
How do I nail this?
Every day in September, you must (1) do SOME guided yoga practice: any video or audio you find on HHY To Go counts, and (2) complete the day's activity as it appears on the calendar.
What do I win?
Pride! But also: Everyone who completes the challenge (practicing yoga every day AND completing all tasks on the calendar) will get entered in a drawing to win a SUPER SECRET SURPRISE BUNDLE from HHY...!!
Where do I find classes?
Sign up for HHY To Go here and access all our interactive and on-demand online classes, including options from 5- 90 minutes! $40 per month, no commitment.
At Home we know there's nothing as powerful as a firsthand account, to inspire friends and neighbors to take charge of their own health.
We also know that telling your own story is a very effective way to re-inspire yourself about your practice and reignite your own yoga-flame!
That’s why we’re running the "What's Your Story” video contest!
This contest will run until June 21 (International Yoga Day!) and 1 winner will WIN a bundle of retail from our online shop (choose whatever you want, up to $250!) OR $250 on your account at the studio.
2 additional winners will win prizes too!
You can submit as many videos as you want, BUT they must all meet *The Criteria* (below) to qualify for the prize.
By entering this contest, you agree that HHY may share your video on the interwebs for unlimited marketing purposes.
We’ll draw the winner out of a hat on June 21! Whether you get a prize or not, just by sharing your story you'll win. Because it's a win-win situation when you inspire others to start a yoga practice
So, what's your story?
Read the rules & tips below, carefully. This contest is open to all current members of Home Hot Yoga. All videos must be emailed (attached as mp4s) to email@example.com
