Why I did it


Heatwise was born from an obsession with creating the ideal hot yoga experience.

Throughout my adult life, I have relied on yoga to manage my anxiety. Whether living in Japan as an English teacher, or back home in New York hustling through the ins and outs of the film industry, the only (healthy) escape that ever actually allowed me to slow down, breathe easy, and feel good was hot yoga.

But even as I bounced around the city attending hundreds of classes, I struggled to find a studio I could call home. I dug deeper into the business, researched other markets whenever possible, and ultimately decided that we could be doing better here in New York.

I’ve worked hard to create a space and an experience that offers comfort, premium quality, and hopefully some levity to our otherwise stressful urban lives.  Leave it all at home, come play with our amazing teachers, indulge in the shvitz and let us know if we didn’t make you smile at least once.  Sweat the big stuff.
