1st time back to hot yoga after a number of years. Very hesitant, strongly cautious due to Covid liftings and such. I wore my mask at times for my own comfort levels. Thank You HY Chelsea for presenting a new, clean, fresh, very welcoming environment. I've let my guard down enough to sign up for an unlimited month. Appreciate the air filtration system in the rooms. My only slight discomfort is that no one checks temperatures or Covid Cards. I confess during the practice I get a bit paranoid. But, I try to find a time/day when it is less crowded and I stand near the door. Would also appreciate it if there could be an announcement at start of classes- to those who tend to have sweat dripping and pouring over their mats in to the space of others!! Horrid! Maybe raise awareness for ppl to be aware of that? Thanks for understanding and Welcome Back.

This is a wonderful hot yoga studio. The instructors are welcoming and accepting of you wherever you are in your yoga practice—from beginners to those with years of experience.Neil has assembled a great group of instructors. In the past, I tried hot yoga at other studios, and I was daunted by the doctrinaire philosophy and, frankly, the arrogance of the instructors. Not to be found here. Only acceptance of where you are at any given time, in the true yogi spirit.Hot yoga has been a great way finding relaxation, losing weight, and developing body confidence and awareness. Before practicing, I was having knee pain from an injury to my IT band of my right thigh, particularly when I walked down stairs. This has healed considerably, and I attribute it to the classes that I have taken at Hot Yoga Chelsea.

An accessible and welcoming studio. They teach the classic 26+2 sequence, as well as hot HIIT and hot vinyasa. The instructors and owner are accommodating and supportive, whether it’s your first time or your hundredth. I know I can show up for any class and it will be awesome - all of the instructors are phenomenal! Students and teachers here are very committed to their practice, but with absolutely zero attitude or pretentiousness. The packages they sell are a great deal, plus they run additional promotions a few times a year.

Just discovered that this studio is right around the corner from the hotel where I have stayed for years. Dropped in for a Bikram (26/2) practice and was absolutely elated. Super friendly and accommodating team. Mats and towels for rent for out of towners. But most of all, lovely studio and lovely energy from everyone ... from the front desk to the instructor/leader to the other yogis. While I'm a Bikram guy, they also offer a variety of other classes/styles as well. Will definitely be back. SICK that I've missed out for so long. N.B. they do have a small locker room and showers -- bring a lock and towel if you plan to clean up there.

I love this studio! I did hot yoga for years in California and was nervous to try it here in New York because I didn’t know what to expect. I’m so glad I found this place. The facilities are very, very clean. The actual space in which you practice is quite large which is nice because it’s prevents classes from feeling crowded. The instructors know what they’re doing and will kindly correct your pose if necessary to ensure you’re getting the most out of your session. All the staff whom I’ve encountered are so kind and welcoming. It really is such a pleasure to practice here. I highly recommend it!

Hot Yoga Chelsea has been a dream come true!! I just moved into the neighborhood and was looking for a studio to join. Upon arriving to HYC, the staff was super friendly and warm, as were the other students. It has a very supportive feel. The studio itself is very clean as well with locker rooms, showers, cubbys, etc, anything you need for pre during and post hot yoga! The classes are all so rewarding and challenging. I feel such an energetic shift after my class, leaving feeling stronger, more grounded, confident, flexible, and INSPIRED!! The teachers are all very informative and kind. I feel so grateful to have joined this studio. If you're looking for an awesome rewarding hot yoga practice (Bikram, Vinyasa, & HOT HIIT) this studio is for you!

words can not describe the love I have for this studio and the employees here! I starting taking classes in December and have been hooked to this "Hot Yoga Chelsea" family ever since... I am/ have been training for different marathons, while also being a dancer in the city... and taking classes here as much as I can has been a saving grace for my body, mind and spirt... I can feel myself growing in all aspects of myself with these classes AND inspiring teachers cultivating such a sacred, hard working space. Not to mention, Neil the owner has been nothing but generous and supportive of me and all my endeavors. From gifting me electrolytes to make sure my body is staying hydrated, to even just asking every time I walk in how I am and how my day is going, Neil and the people at this place create more then a space to just come a get a good stretch and sweat going... it's a family, community and you will not regret walking in and seeing what they are all about here!

This place and people here are truly a God send. The amount of compassion and courtesy expressed by the staff and trainers here eases the stress of day to day city living; believe me when I say, you will need it in that heat. The instructors help guide the practice with just as much care & compassion, all while putting you in a space to challenge yourself and grow.This place was really here for me during those Lock Down days ,when I losing my ISH. I definitely want this place to succeed, for it's long overdue that those, who displayLOVE, PATIENCE, ACCEPTANCE, & COMPASSIONnot just in words, but through actual practice begin toSUCCEED & WIN.

Absolutely love Hot Yoga Chelsea, mentally & physically challenging classes that leave you feeling so strong and refreshed. The classes are suitable for all levels - from the most advanced to modifiable for beginners. The regular hot yoga classes (Bikram & Vinyasa) are great but I loveeee Hot HIIT for something more fast paced. The instructors are knowledgable and passionate, and really motivate you to work to your potential. All in all, a great experience & I strongly recommend 🙂

Real people, real teaching, all heart. Some studios claim to teach "Hot Yoga", but this studio teaches the Bikram posture practice like how the yoga sutras intended yoga to be taught. Which is beyond the physical experience. I'm grateful and thankful for this space, the teachers and this practice.

Love this place! The instructors are awesome and all bring a unique flavor to their classes. I learn more about the postures every class and find new ways to push myself further in safe ways thanks to their continued guidance. I also like the layout of the room - even on the busiest of classes, you can still see yourself in the mirror and have enough space to do the poses. Just such a great community here.

I Heart Hot Yoga Chelsea! My very first impression when I came on a class pass was that everyone was very friendly and I felt welcome. This made me feel comfortable as it was my first Bikram class since the pandemic started. I have had a regular practice for about 4 years prior to the pandemic and my spine was really missing the heat and my mind was missing the discipline.I shortly after purchased a package.I would prefer to wear a mask personally but it is a challenge in the heat. That said, I may wear a mask if I feel the class has too many participants. So far, I have been lucky that there was decent spacing in class. I haven't been yet at night.I prefer the 90 minute classes as they are more effective (and I figure of I make the effort of going and schlepping all my gear: mat, mat towel, water bottles and regular towel plus a change of clothes). and there aren't as many on the schedule as the 60, but that is probably due to demand as most people are the opposite and just want to get in and out. Neil at the desk is very caring and takes the time to lend newbies a pair of shorts if needed which I think is sweet - bring shorts if you are new and reading this!The studio is extremely clean and they are constantly cleaning the floors.Locker rooms: Have small cubes and hair dryers. BYO lock. The shower area is very small but I am grateful that there is the option to shower after (as one needs to after hot yoga if going somewhere directly after like work!). On that note: My only criticism is that the towels could use an update - they are a bit on the scratchy side and well worn, so if you are able BYOTMy one caveat has nothing to do with the studio: People new to Bikram style yoga should obey the rules and respect other people in class. This means: NO fidgeting, NO Extra moves that are not part of the practice (like adding in your own routing during class) and NO TALKING TO YOUR FRIEND DURING CLASS! If you are new, create an exit strategy with your friend BEFORE class if you think you may not be able to take the heat!Enjoy!

I've been doing Bikram at Hot Yoga Chelsea since 2015 and recently returned to practice after the confinement lifted. The studio itself is being consummately cleaned and sanitized but, happily and luckily, Hot Yoga Chelsea has not managed to wash away their genuine kindness, understanding, and ambiance! All of what HYC had before remains: Courtesy, mindful and knowledgeable teachers, optimism, and an open opportunity to heal oneself through the practice itself. I feel very appreciative HYC is open and still delivering on its promises! I plan to be in the studio much more during the new year - Covid be damned! 🙂

Hot Yoga Chelsea was welcoming and professional from the get-go. As a first timer, staff was friendly and helped me check-in, directed me to where I could stash my shoes and coat, and I really appreciated that once the room began filling up, they came in to help shift people around so everyone had access to the mirror -- it's always awkward when the room is not evenly spaced out and it was a relief that HYC came to in to make sure everyone had a good experience. The class itself was fun and challenging. I would definitely recommend HYC and am so glad I found this place.

I've been a member since 2016, but have been going inconsistently throughout the years due to my love-hate relationship (stamina and inflexibility) with the poses and heat. Having been a member for all this time, I will say the professionalism and demeanor the staff and owner have towards the students have always been great. They make you feel welcome and try as best to make sure everyone's taken care of (e.g. get to know everyone's name over time, check everyone's general mat placement so they can see themselves in the mirror, answer any questions from students, etc.). I was honestly super happy to find out that they had re-opened. Since the pandemic, I had developed a much larger appreciation towards the poses and heat to help relieve my stress and anxiety from what's going on in the world. I also found out recently that they have a mix of other classes (hot vinyasa, hot HIIT, bikram 75, bikram 90), and am excited to eventually try the HIIT one.

I've attended roughly 75 Bikram-style classes in spurts over a 3 year period. Hot Yoga Chelsea is the place to be. I still come here even though I moved out of the neighborhood. Imagine a space where you can work with your potential and change fixed, perceived limitations about what your body and mind can and cannot manage. After several sports (mainly soccer) and impact (mainly from flying off of my bike in NYC) injuries, I've strengthened chronically problematic joint-areas including the wrist, elbow, shoulder and knee. With this practice you also strengthen your back while lengthening your spine, relieving back pain and improving posture. I am able to attend classes in a hot room with teachers who consistently show up for you. The teachers are experienced and stick to the fundamentals of the poses. The space is quite clean and the heat cranked. Walk out of the hot room to Neil's sick tunes. Go home with the feeling that you've taken care of yourself. Come back again the next day and do it all over again. The place is the real deal and is not overwhelmingly new-agey.

The staff at Hot Yoga Chelsea are truly committed to helping you access the health and wellness benefits of hot yoga. My session was very therapeutic and the other students are so warm, welcoming and friendly. I will definitely add hot yoga to my wellness regimen and I look forward to doing lots more sessions at Hot Yoga Chelsea!

I've been out of the game for a while and he grinded my bones to make his bread, just the way I like it, Shrek style . But seriously great balance of give and take, helping everyone through synergistic group movements. I highly reccomend! Oh yeah beautiful facilities, really clean, great, terrific, I can't wait to go back!

The workouts themselves are excellent. The Bikram hot yoga is soothing, the right amount of challenging, and invigorates my body. The HIT classes are a good mix of tough and fun. The staff is what makes this place such a great place to come back to every week. They take care of you, they are supportive, and they want to see you do your best. This is definitely one of my all time favorite gyms and places to workout.

Great heat! Great teacher! Staff was super helpful. Not a brand new space but definitely clean - I saw continuous cleaning before, during and after class. You can feel real community here. Students very friendly too. I needed to be reminded of how amazing it feels. It's not easy to find a true 90 minute 26&2 class these days - thank you Hot Yoga Chelsea, I'm blessed because of you.

Today was the first Bikram yoga class that I had taken since February of 2019. The teacher was amazing. The community felt like home. The heat is perfect. I'm thankful that I went and celebrated Halloween on my mat.

Great studio with strong practice and real human elements. I been to a lot of hot/bikram yoga studios in Manhattan in 10+ years of my practice. This one is by far most people-oriented and connection-driven. The staff knows everyone by name and always around after class to chat about yoga, life, making personal connections, etc. The owner and studio very responsive over texts and phone. The practices are tailored to individual needs. Great studio - worth me traveling 20 min each way to classes vs. finding a studio closer in my neighborhood

Amazing yoga studio and great experience and customer service!! I’ve been attending hot yoga classes at this studio for almost 3 years, and I love the welcoming community, the meditative experience of the classes and the customer service from the owner Neil. If you want to try hot yoga this is the place!! There are also amazing benefits to doing hot yoga including better posture, flexibility and mindfulness. Highly recommend 🙂

This place is your go-to place for hot yoga in NYC. It’s incredibly clean and they have towels and mats, if you forget to bring your own. They have 60min or 90min classes so I can always find a class to fit my schedule. It’s a super welcoming environment and I always look forward to class here!

I have been going to this Hot Yoga Chelsea - for years - I love this studio. I had to stop because of Covid. But not only do they have great Hot Yoga classes for 1hour and a 90 min one once a day, they have a great HIIT class taught by Monique. All the yoga teachers are great. I have zero complaints. I just have to do an insane amount of laundry again. I have chronic back pain, and I still have it but my each week a little more flexible. I have taken friends that visit to the studio and they love the classes too. Vanessa

The vibe is your friendliest neighbor x Coach Taylor + a dash of Tara Brach mindfulness.I honestly can't remember when exactly I last did hot yoga in the before-times. Maybe mid 2019 or early 2020? Either way, I couldn't believe I didn't totally suck after a 2 year pandemmy hiatus. Both the owner and the teacher, Tasha, were super friendly and welcoming. It seemed like most people were regulars with passing hellos, small talk, and good-nights. The space is really clean and I especially loved the cool down area by the windows! Tasha was able to hold down the space with poise and grace. Her tone was firm, wisdom deep, and she was able to communicate various adjustments and modifications with great range. I felt supported and challenged without being barked at like some B****m yoga teachers. Thank you for a great first 90 minutes back in the sweat saddle. I still can't believe I held standing bow the whole time, which I have never done! EVER.

Amazing to say the least! I am from Fort Lauderdale Florida, I’m in the area for business and decided to check out a new style of yoga while in town. The atmosphere and room temperature were so inviting and clean!! The teachers and staff were so helpful and warm to be around. A REAL family feel. I teach hot vinyasa flows so this was a completely different technique. One I will defiantly be digging deeper into. Highly recommend Hot Yoga Chelsea NYC to anyone traveling or local. You will be impressed and more than happy you made the decision to join the family.

If looking your home base studio look no further - Neal and his team run one of the most welcoming and professional Hot Yoga/HIIT establishments in NYC!!! I have been coming here for years and the quality of every class is always consistent - it’s squeaky clean and the prices are so fair. They really make you feel like a family there and genuinely care about your experience. Can’t say enough good things!!!

I have been going to Hot Yoga Chelsea NYC (formerly known as Hot on Yoga Chelsea) since early 2018. At the time, I had just moved to New York City and was looking for a studio that exclusively taught Bikram-style hot yoga classes multiple times a day, and was thrilled to find my “home” with this studio. After my first class, I was immediately sold and bought a six month unlimited package – and have been hooked ever since! Over the last three and a half years, my love for the hot room on 27th Street has only grown, as a result of the phenomenal teachers, incredible owner, Neil, great community, reasonable prices, and flexible schedule!

If you are looking for a lean toned body with and a diversity of classes you NEED to join this studio!! I just moved to NYC and came across this studio on class pass for their 90 minute Bikram hot yoga. I absolutely fell in love with this class and just had to buy the unlimited membership. Since consistently taking this class for the past few weeks I have already noticed changes in my body. I have never felt so lean and strong. I recently tried the 60 minute hot HIIT and no other class even comes close to the intensity and diversity this class provides. You will spend 60 minutes doing difficult circuits in a heated room and come out feeling healthier than ever. I have done core power for years and it doesn't even come close to the difficulty this class. I absolutely LOVE this studio and am so happy I found a place in this new city that resets me and pushes me to be the best version of myself!

I recently discovered this studio after a long haul from having children and the pandemic . The studio is very clean, and feels comfortable. The teachers are the best part of this studio. They have given me so much each day when I step on to my mat. The studio will work with you on discounts on packages that are available. Nasmaste!

On a recent trip to NYC I attended 4 hot yoga classes at Hot Yoga Chelsea. The studio is friendly, clean, and HOT! I had 4 different teachers, 3 who were excellent and unfortunately one who may have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed. I give her the benefit of the doubt and will rate the whole experience very positively. I will return on my next trip.

I’m excited to discover this studio. They offer a variety of classes - Hot HITT, Hot Vinyasa and Hot 26. The studio is clean and ventilates well. I have been in some gross carpeted Bikram rooms in the past that were really stuffy so I was happy to see these facilities were good. And everyone is really nice. The owner, Neal, goes out of his way to introduce you to people, making it a community feel.

I’ve never believed in organized religion because personally I’ve never felt the sense of community and spiritual connection so many claim to feel. Yoga has always been my church and is when I find that sense of community and sense of a higher power. Finding the right studio is really important to me and one of the hardest parts of the pandemic was not being able to practice in my “church”. I stumbled upon Hot Yoga Chelsea and was welcomed in with open arms. I was a little nervous but instantly felt at peace. The entire staff showed kindness and patience and I instantly gained that sense of community I missed so much. If you are looking for a studio that will bring you to a meditative state and leave you feeling stronger physically and spiritually (and dripping in sweat) look no farther.

I am so happy this yoga studio exists. i came here for a while before pandemic, and now I've been back a few months and it's better than ever. The teachers are amazing, they each have a slightly different vibe and if you come often enough you get to know each of them and appreciate their subtle differences in teaching the asanas. They are now teaching some Hot HIIT classes several times a week that are super fun and a nice change of pace from the yoga. The students are also very friendly and the whole place feels good to walk into. Highly recommend.

I came upon this gem of a studio after having followed some of my favorite instructors from a Bikram studio in Harlem. Since joining 6 days ago, I've practiced everyday, the most since 2020, and I couldn't be more impressed with the excellent instructors and friendly and clean environment. I can already tell that this is a place where community is built.

I’ve been coming to this studio for years and the staff and teachers have always been top notch. It is a great environment and they now have a variety of classes, but most importantly many of the classes are the traditional Bikram style which I love because it is much less stressful on my wrists! I highly recommend this studio.

I don't take the time to post a Google review very often, but this place deserves all the stars I can give it. I came to HYC just after the city started opening up again last spring, and I am so glad I did. As someone who has practiced hot yoga for nearly 20 years, I was looking for a new "home" to re-start my practice - and boy, did I find one! This studio is exactly what I look for as a place to not only hone my practice, but also to find a diverse, warm community away from the rigors of medical school. The instructors and staff are amazing, and the studio is sparkling clean always. If you are an advanced student, every single teacher is knowledgable enough to challenge you and push your practice further. If you are a beginner, you will feel comfortable and welcomed, without any of the "competitiveness" that so often can be found in yoga communities. Neil, the studio owner, genuinely cares about his clients, and makes sure every single student is happy, feels like they are wanted, and that they are a valuable member of the HYC community. If you're looking for a new home like I was, or if you want to give hot yoga a try for the first time, you should try this studio. Five stars aren't enough.
