About Hot Asana

No matter your experience level — beginner to advanced and every place in between — you are welcome. Our skilled staff will safely challenge you to find your personal edge.

Our History & Philosophy

Born in charming Southern Pines, NC, founder Virginia Gallagher has created a yoga brand that is open and receptive to all people, a network of studios that serve their communities and supports their teachers. Hot Asana is both a studio for practice and a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School for the training of future teachers.

We Are Sweat & Soul

You CAN have an exceptional heated practice AND transcend the craziness of life to find peace within. It doesn’t have to be one or the other. Hot Asana delivers it ALL ~ Sweat & Soul! We invite you to experience our dynamic, inspiring classes, led by talented teachers, in order to find and be supported on your own unique journey.

Variety of Classes & Heat

It’s not all hot, all the time! We offer both warm (below body temperature) and hot (above body temperature) classes. We offer our signature flow (vinyasa style) classes as well as hot yoga (i.e. no flow & longer holds) … Many of our studios also offer yoga sculpt classes, unheated classes, yin classes, fusion classes, gentle classes, kids classes, prenatal classes, TRX classes, and even aerial yoga classes. Choose the studio closest to you under "Locations" to see what's available.


Our studios not only feature classes from sunrise to sunset, but our door is never closed. We have amazing facilities for you to get ready for your class, relax after you’ve finished, or just to hang out with us.
