Bizline: Hot yoga in Summit County

Q: What type of business do you


A:We operate Summit Hot Yoga, Summit County’s Premier Hot Yoga Studio. We offer hot and warm yoga classes. Our instructors are all certified and provide help teaching proper alignment and how to safely move through the class to receive the best benefits from yoga.

Q: Where are you from, and why did

you decide to open your business in Summit County?

A: We have lived in Summit County for the past five years, previously living in North Carolina on the Outer Banks. We had another business – Kula’s Cafe – for the past four years, and after selling that knew we had to open Summit Hot Yoga to offer this wonderful form of hatha yoga to share with all of the active Summit County folks. What better place to do hot yoga when it is so cold outside?

Q: What experience do you have in this field?

A: I have been practicing yoga for the past 10 years myself and have been teaching here in Summit County for the past two years. I am a 300-hour certified level I and II in the Barkan Method of hot yoga. I also have a 200-hour certification in hatha yoga and I am a registered Yoga Alliance teacher.

Q: What sets your business apart from other similar businesses?

A: No one else is doing true hot yoga. It is a specific series of postures created from our lineage in Calcutta, India. Also, we have very qualified instructors who help you during the class. This is not a “wing it as you go, over-crowded class” where you try to figure out what you’re supposed to be doing. We will always continue to educate ourselves so that we can continue to help and improve our students.

Q: What types of customers do you hope to reach in Summit County?

A: All shapes, sizes and mind sets! There is place within each yoga posture for every body type and every person. This form of Yoga will especially appeal to those who are already athletes in their own right, as well as the beginner.

Q: What are your plans for your

company’s future?

A: We will expand our class selection, offer workshops and beginning series instruction, and bring in master yoga teachers from out of town. This will further expand our yoga knowledge and let our students learn from these special sessions.
