Hot on Bank is not just a yoga studio but a haven of acceptance, love, and unity. It is a space that bridges gaps that exist in every city, unifying our beautiful community in celebrated differences. It is an environment that meets students where they stand—regardless of color, gender, sexuality, background, religion, socioeconomic status or beliefs. Many first step foot in the space for the physical benefits of a powerful hot yoga practice but all students return time and time again for the personal, mental and spiritual benefits as well as the sense of community and friendship built in the studio. Although each of our teachers have explored many different yogic traditions, every single teacher has one thing in common—to empower our students both on and off the mat. Translated from Sanskrit, yoga means union—and that is exactly what Hot on Bank embodies, not just in mind, body and spirit but in community, connection and love.
