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 Bikram Yoga studios in Seattle. We opened at a time when Yoga studios were few and far between. For the last 14-plus years, The SweatBox has offered the purest form of Bikram Yoga. We now offer 60-minute Power Hour and Vinyasa Flow 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.



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 for almost fifteen years.  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

Bikram 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.” Bikram Yoga is a great practice to include with other Yoga styles as well as higher impact sports like running, soccer, basketball and football.

Bikram Yoga is one of the safest Yoga practices around. At The SweatBox, all classes are taught by trained, certified instructors. Each posture prepares you for the next one, so you are working safely, thoroughly, step by step through your whole system. A regular Bikram Yoga practice will help you build your flexibility, strength and stamina. It is a miracle cure for back pain and knee injuries.
