About Our Yoga Studio

Join us in the hot room

At The Hot Yoga Studio we wish to provide a fun challenging practice space for yoga practitioners of all levels. We believe in working the body to free the mind. Each teacher has been trained in a different style of yoga and has created their own unique way of teaching. We strive to come up with fun, unique yoga classes that will work your mind and body from head to toe, inside and out. We like it hot, we LOVE music, and most of all we seek to have all levels of students in each and every class. Be ready to sweat, laugh, work, stretch, burn calories, clear your mind, and leave feeling a whole lot lighter than when you came through the door. We get that life is busy and challenging and we look to make the best use of your time on your mat. We love teaching and yoga and all the things that come along with a solid practice, We strive to make you feel welcome each and every time you walk through our doors. Get ready, you are about to find your home away from home!

Our Hot Yoga Instructors

Brooke Bayko

Brooke took her first yoga class at a young age. She fell in love with the practice and realized its true benefits late in her twenties. Teaching and practicing daily for over ten years, many styles of yoga, she has developed a deep love for Hot Power Yoga. Its challenges and creativity have held a special place in her heart. Brooke loves a good Hot Vinyasa Flow that moves your body set to fun, upbeat (sometimes loud) music. Her style is open to practitioners of all levels.  See you on your mat! 

Ali Bowen

Ali Bowen has been practicing yoga for over ten years, and her love of it led her to pursue an RYT-200 five years ago. Trained in vinyasa flow by Elizabeth Vllangas, Ali’s classes will leave your body feeling like you’ve worked and your spirit feeling lighter than when you walked in! On a personal note, Ali spends her days teaching high school English and lives in Southern New Hampshire with her husband and daughter, June.

Steph Smith-Simone

Steph brings her passion for health and wellness to life on and off the mat. She’s enjoyed practicing various forms of yoga for the past 25 years, and fell in love with the heat. Something about aggressively sweating and focused breathing with fellow yogis leaves you feeling connected and just wanting more!

Steph aims to cultivate a class environment of gratitude, some fun, and mindful movement. She seeks to enhance the appreciation for where the body and mind are in present space and to help students improve mobility, reduce pain, diminish stress, and boost wellbeing.

Always an enthusiast of curiosity and learning Steph has a PhD and MPH from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and postdoctoral training from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Center for Health and Wellbeing at Princeton University. She recently completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training with Tricia Philpott at Elephant Tree Yoga.

Off the mat, Steph enjoys time with her husband and daughter. They enjoy trail running, hiking, surfing, SUP, gymnastics, and time in Hawaii as often as they can!
