About The Hot Yoga Spot

The Hot Yoga Spot provides students of all levels with a warm atmosphere and welcoming space to enjoy a variety of accessible and inclusive hot yoga, barre and fitness classes. In addition to an assortment of class styles, The Hot Yoga Spot offers workshops, special events and teacher training programs in facilities ranging from 2,000-2,500 square feet. Each class is led by a certified professional, trained to offer a relaxing yet challenging practice in a studio heated between 90-105 degrees.

Values & History

Through her passion for yoga and desire to help others, Jessica Fuller, founder, and CEO of The Hot Yoga Spot, has created a vibrant and connected community. Her mantra of peace, acceptance, and persistence has served as her beacon and as the foundation of The Hot Yoga Spot's core values. Jessica opened her first studio at the age of 23 after graduating from the University at Albany with a master's in education.

Today, Jessica guides a team of more than 50 yoga instructors across six locations and welcomes new students to The Hot Yoga Spot each week. She has cultivated a supportive wellness center, providing a safe and warm environment for all. Under her mentorship, many of her instructors have been inspired to create training and leadership programs, opened their own businesses and have forwarded her mission to serve others.

Industry Performance

Why Us?

80 million Americans are likely to try yoga in one year and $16.8 billion is spent by yogis on classes, clothes, equipment, and accessories each year. Many of our clients enjoy our hot yoga and barre fitness sessions regularly at The Hot Yoga Spot as their primary form of exercise. Our robust class schedule is the perfect way to build muscle, burn calories, promote flexibility and feel strong.

The Hot Yoga Spot's varied styles of yoga and barre offerings allow you to retain customers and give clients one place to find all of their fitness needs. Although many of our members exclusively choose The Hot Yoga Spot for their primary workout routines, some enjoy other activities, such as running or CrossFit. For those people, weekly hot yoga and barre classes are the perfect way to supplement their regular exercise to find balance, promote flexibility and prevent injury.

Purchasing a The Hot Yoga Spot Franchise

Costs include professional advisory fees from third parties, insurance and three months of working capital. We'll disclose all the needed details and help you understand better once you apply.

There is a growing opportunity for The Hot Yoga Spot in areas across the country. Employing our successful model, owners will follow the structure that has worked for us in six company-owned studios. Our financial performance model is not based on just one studio, but several that have operated for several years and continue to grow. Our professional experience and flexible schedule give clients the ability to practice a variety of classes.

Ideal Candidate & Qualifications

We don't require an owner-operator business model. You can hire a general manager to run your studio. You don't need to be an instructor, but we do require a minimum of 200-hour RYT certifications for all instructors who teach classes at The Hot Yoga Spot. We offer certification programs for you and/or your instructors in our Albany, NY area studios.

Training & Support

As part of our national network, your studio and community will enjoy quality instructor training, mentorship programs and invitations to national and international yoga retreats.

The Hot Yoga Spot team will host training at your studio to build your community and teach you how to lead these yourself to further elevate your business.

Initial franchise training includes 40 hours conducted in Albany, NY, plus additional on-site training once your business is ready to launch. Our pre-opening program covers comprehensive topics including operations, marketing, sales, financial management, goal setting and business management.

After the initial launch of your studio, we coach our owners through the development phase, provide guidance to attract and retain new members and add classes that fit your instructor model and your business goals.

Our proven marketing tactics have allowed The Hot Yoga Spot to expand and open new studios, while offering our clients more scheduled and specialty classes, with a wide variety of yoga and barre sessions to suit their workout and yoga style and preference.

Each owner and studio will have a featured website to promote the local schedule, highlight The Hot Yoga Spot teaching team, showcase upcoming events and provide detailed information about the business.

We have an app exclusively for your members with easy mobile access to view what is available and to easily reserve classes.
