Our Mission-Improve your physical, mental and spiritual health

The SweatBox offers a supportive environment for Yogis of all practice levels. Above all else, we value health, wellness, and community. As such, our class offerings support physical, emotional and spiritual growth for all students. Our committed instructors teach with open-minds and open-hearts.

Real Hot. Real Local. Real Yoga.

The SweatBox, established in 2001, is one of the oldest Traditional Hot Yoga studios in Seattle. We opened at a time when Yoga studios were few and far between. For the last 16-plus years, The SweatBox has offered high-quality classes taught by loving, talented teachers. We now offer 90-Minute Traditional Hot Yoga, 60-minute Traditional Hot Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Hot Hybrid and Yin Yoga classes as well as workshops and special classes. The SweatBox is committed to offering quality yoga in a personal, open-hearted environment. All of our classes are open to people of all levels and abilities. Our studio has dressing rooms, showers, mat and towel rentals and filtered water.

Experienced, Compassionate and Knowledgable

The SweatBox is committed to offering a thoughtful menu of classes taught by experienced, competent and compassionate staff.

The SweatBox owner Laura is inspired by great leaders and community activists.  The SweatBox community strives to be a place where people come to feel lifted up. Many of our students have been practicing with us since we opened our doors in 2001.  The SweatBox teaching staff have a cumulative 100-plus years of teaching experience and all of our teachers are well versed in giving personal adjustments and appropriate modifications.

Hot Yoga


The “Original" Hot Yoga Expanded

Traditional Hot Yoga is the formal grouping of a 26 posture/2 breathing exercise series and is taught in 105 – 110 degree heat. Unlike some Yoga practices where you work specific parts of your body in different classes, through the 26 postures, you will work your entire body “inside out, bones to skin.” Traditional Hot Yoga is a great practice to include with other Yoga styles as well as higher impact sports like running, soccer, basketball and football.

The SweatBox Power Hour is a shorter version (60 minutes) of the Traditional Hot 90 minute class with the integration of some postures in a flow.

Hot Hybrid is a series that merges Traditional Hot and Vinyasa poses into a set flow series in 95-100 degree heat.

Our Vinyasa classes are practiced in a warm room (between 90-95 degrees) and are all taught by experienced Vinyasa teachers.  Unlike some of our other styles, in Vinyasa, no class is ever the same.

The SweatBox is also proud to offer Yin Yoga on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays (non-heated class). Yin is a slow series of long-held postures designed to help students work into their connective tissue, healing and bringing renewed health to the fascia and joints.
