In 2002, inspired by her love for people and yoga, Linda Burch founded a very special studio in Kirkland, Washington which still stands today. The compassion Linda has for her students is the motivating factor in transforming Hot Yoga Inc. from a special, intimate yoga studio, into one of the largest and most-loved yoga communities on the West Coast.
Always grateful for what yoga has brought to her life, she enthusiastically shares this gift with her students, teachers, employees, and community on a daily basis. Her commitment to her practice has attracted one of the largest groups of certified Hot Yoga teachers on the West Coast. Like Linda, they are deeply passionate to improving the health and well-being of each unique individual and the community as a whole. Many of our students consider our studios their home away from home. We hope to be able to support you on your path to health and happiness.
Yoga practice has brought my spiritual life to a place of balance I never thought possible. Bringing about a sense of peace and happiness effecting all i come into contact with. I can’t remember being more happy.~ Derek W.
“An accident in 2019 left me with a ruptured disc and torn muscles in my leg. This resulted in surgery in 2019 and 2020. I was facing another surgery in 2022 but my PA, a student at HYI, recommended hot yoga as a preemptive measure. The first class was torturous but afterward, I felt better than I had in years. After nine months, I’m clear of needing a third surgery. While weight loss wasn’t a goal, I’ve lost 36 pounds.
Hatha lets me tune in, chill out and shape up — all at the same time. It has that relaxing element, but it doesn’t mean you’re not gonna break a sweat 🙂~ Diana A.
