I have belonged to four different hot yoga studios In New York since I began practicing 14 years ago. Hot Yoga Chelsea is by far the best. The instructors are top-notch and go out of their way to accommodate, and guide, students of all levels. The welcoming atmosphere has helped me achieve my goals with Hot Yoga - weight loss, better flexibility, good balance, and an overall sense of calm. Neal, in particular, is a friendly and generous host who makes all feel welcome in his studio. I give the highest marks to this studio to anyone who wants to meet their yoga goals in a friendly, supportive, judgment-free environment.

I am super new to hot yoga, but this place makes you feel amazing. From the staff to the space. I have a physically and mentally demanding job, coming here and taking a class helps me escape. I absolutely love it here. I have been bringing people with me, someone new to every class to experience hot yoga at Hot Yoga Chelsea. No other place I'd rather be.

~ Claudia

I began practicing yoga in March 2014. After I began practicing, my body leaned, strengthened and bent with ease. I had been having issues with my back from distance running and my hips from having children. This all softened and vanished as my yoga practice grew. Mentally is where I see a significant change. I sleep better, have more clarity, feel more patient but most of all am present in the moment. A great deal of this came through learning to breath and relax - funny that I actually had to learn to do that better! I love practicing at Hot Yoga Chelsea because it has grown into a family for me. The instructors are invested in your growth and the journey you choose to take. I feel like that 'love' is something that you leave the mat with and have ample opportunity to spread throughout your day.

I have only been practicing yoga for 4 months, and I am hooked. From day one, I have felt welcomed and supported by the amazing staff. I am impressed by how effortlessly the teachers are able to support the individual needs of their students while also creating a community feeling in each class. For nearly 20 years, I have been participating in various group exercise classes and these yoga classes are consistently some of the best workouts I have ever experienced! I leave each class feeling challenged and energized.

Teacher

I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years. Since, I've been practicing at Hot Yoga Chelsea, I've lost 10 plus pounds and I am fitting into clothes that I have not worn in 4 years!!! My golf score improved by 8-12 strokes, and my drives are 20-50 yards longer. The yoga instructors at Hot Yoga Chelsea are the best I have taken instruction from. They are very good at "talking" me though the poses to get the most benefit from my practice. The results I've achieved at Hot Yoga Chelsea are superior to other studios in town. The staff at Hot Yoga Chelsea are very friendly and personable and always greet me with a smile.

Training Coordinator

I walked into Hot Yoga Chelsea thinking this will help me get through my marathon training. After that first class, I fell in love. I asked Haven how many times a week should I practice to get the benefits of yoga. She said "3 times a week." So I made it work and I started practicing 3 times a week - if not more!! I have been practicing 3-4 times a week since May. I love it! My body has changed and my mind - I am more relaxed and feel an energy after class that I love. I am happy, I sleep better and I am less moody. As for my running, I don't huff and puff as much, my lungs have expanded and it helps so much. Also my planter fasciatus hasn't acted up in a long time. I love Hot Yoga Chelsea and all the instructors - they make you feel so at home and they encourage you. I love not knowing who will be teaching because each instructor is unique and I benefit from each and every one of them in a different way. They each bring a different feel to my practice! I love them all and I am so thankful for this studio.

Stay at Home Mom & Runner

I have been practicing yoga for about 3 years. There are so many benefits I receive from practicing yoga. Physically I feel strong and my practice is integral in undoing the crazy things I do to my body when practicing my other vocations... showing reined cow horses! Emotionally and spiritually, my yoga practice gives me a deep sense of peace and calm. I love practicing at Hot Yoga Chelsea because of the warm and wonderful feeling I get as soon as I walk in the door and am greeted by name. It is kind of like a family. Hot Yoga Chelsea provides high quality instructors in a clean and inviting studio for a reasonable cost. I am a huge fan!

~Karla M.

Non-profit CEO

I have only been doing yoga for a little over a month. I enjoy the friendly, HELPFUL and caring staff at Hot Yoga Chelsea. The facility is always very clean and inviting. I started going because of a health scare and although I have just started, here are a few of the things I have noticed for myself. First, you must know I am over 300 pounds so this has not been easy. I have lost 8 pounds and 3.5 inches. Daily living things such as tying my shoes, shaving my legs and climbing stairs are much easier. I sleep better and I am defiantly more flexible. I really don't like exercise so I am happy to find a workout I enjoy.

I have been practicing yoga at Hot Yoga Chelsea since October, 2014. There are so many benefits from yoga - but I guess for me the most important are that I have lost some weight, I feel stronger and I no longer need to take sleeping pills. My head is clearer throughout the day and I am overall a more relaxed, happier person! My favorite thing about Hot Yoga Chelsea is how it is such a family atmosphere. I felt welcomed from the second I stepped in there and never felt like a "newbie!" The instruction is consistent and the one-on-one coaching is so valuable. As a facility, it is sparkling clean and the staff is always warm and friendly. I would absolutely, without hesitation, recommend Hot Yoga Chelsa to anyone considering adding yoga to their life.

~Kristen R.

Elementary School Teacher

I started practicing yoga over 15 years ago, but mainly used DVD’s. I was intimidated to actually go to a yoga studio until about 5 years ago. After that, I searched for a yoga studio that offered a welcoming atmosphere, knowledgeable teachers, and a great location. I found all of this at Hot Yoga Chelsea. The atmosphere is amazing: welcoming, warm, and friendly. The teachers are knowledgeable and challenge me both physically and mentally. And in addition to all of that, Hot Yoga Chelsa has the best floor on which to practice yoga! Until this year, I had never tried a hot class. Now that I’ve tried a HOT class, I won’t go back. When I got a cold, I went to a hot class anyway. I thought the humidity in the room might make me feel better. As I went through the poses, I noticed I wasn’t coughing anymore, I was able to breathe, and I felt better. Instead of my cold lasting the usual 7 days, mine lasted only 2. I’ve also noticed that the yoga classes, contributed to my conditioning for running. I love running 5k’s and 10k’s and am training for a half marathon. I feel more balanced and my legs and feet are injury free! Yoga has improved my running ability and helps me to maintain a strong, healthy body.

I really wanted to give this spot a try. I arrived at 2pm for a 2pm class and was told I was too late to participate. The class hadn’t even started. But, sure, whatever.Still, whoever it was at the front desk, a shorter bald person, was super rude. I was hoping to try you all out through ClassPass, but that was such a negative first interaction.Edit: Ok, I spoke with the GM who was so kind and helped me understand the strict policy on lateness. They also reminded me that the instructors are there solo and taking on a lot. Not excusable but understandable. I was even offered a class redo. I appreciated that!

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.

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.

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.

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 had the best experience at Hot Yoga Chelsea! I was visiting here from Kentucky and they were so kind and welcoming. I took their HOT HIIT class and it was amazing! Will definitely return. Thank you!

I've been taking class at Hot Yoga Chelsea for the better part of a decade and it's one of the best places to practice hot yoga in the city! The room is hot, studio is clean and well sanitized, and the staff and teachers are great.You can't beat the price and the value is beyond!!

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.

What a great studio!!!! Niel could not be kinder and more accommodating. John’s class was phenomenal- been doing Bikram (classic 26:) for years and he’s the real deal. I learned so many little tips from just this one class. Very friendly place and they’re so willing to make things work for you.. I couldn’t recommend them more highly!

I have been practicing here for a little over three years now. The location is no longer convenient to my office, but I still travel out of my way to take a class or two during the week.The studio and facilities are always very clean; that puts me at ease in a post pandemic world. If you're a beginner, the teachers & staff will put you at ease, providing useful tips & helpful adjustments along the way.

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.

This morning was my first time trying hot yoga and Richard did an AMAZING job of ensuring I was not overwhelmed. 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!

Hot Yoga Chelsea is what I've been missing from my life. First time back to a hot class since pre-pandemic, and this place made it worth the wait. Staff is super friendly and helpful, and the studio is very clean and spacious (with a great, joint-friendly floor). Even after only one class, I couldn't recommend Hot Yoga Chelsea more.

I had the pleasure of taking Richard's class this evening. He is simply the best. 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.

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

I practiced at Hot Yoga Chelsea on 5/29/2022 and had a wonderful 60 minute class led by Myrna. Neal was very hospitable and I felt warmly welcomed to the studio. I didn't see any lockers available, so if you're visiting from out-of-town, bring minimal items with you. Building entrance is locked - and if you miss the entrance - the pole studio next door is very friendly. They helped me find the right entrance. Look forward to my next visit to NYC and practicing again at Hot Yoga Chelsea!

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.
