Hot Yoga Sugar Land

Hot Yoga Sugar Land owner Alanna Partin recalls an injury—a stress fracture following a fitness competition—that had her stepping on a yoga mat for the first time.

“I was trying to fix my broken body, and it was something I could do pain-free,” Partin said. “It was during that time that I realized how much I loved it. It helped me train my body for its rest and repair.”

While living in Calgary, Canada, she began working for an oilfield services company, managing its injury prevention program.

Traveling to the company’s sites in the United States, she would often come to the company’s headquarters in Sugar Land and attend yoga classes at the studio she ended up purchasing and naming Hot Yoga Sugar Land.

Partin decided to take her love for yoga further by taking some instructor training courses, not to teach, but to learn more for herself, not thinking it would come in handy.

After moving to Texas, she was laid off in 2015; however, Partin had other plans. At yoga class one day, she heard the owner was retiring and would be closing the studio, something she did not want to see happen. With the support of her husband, Partin took over the studio as owner June 1, 2018.

“My heart strings were pulled,” she said. “It was really cool to flash forward, and I end up living here and taking over the studio.”

One year later, Hot Yoga Sugar Land has 10 instructors and offers different styles of hot yoga, including hot power flow—a Vinyasa style for focusing on breath and relaxation; original hot yoga practiced at 105 degrees; inferno hot Pilates, which combines high-intensity aerobics with low-impact core work; and a new course offering called Buti, which incorporates Vinyasa technique with cardio sprints.

Partin, who is expecting her first child later this year, also started prenatal pregnancy and nonheated yoga classes at the end of May, and she also plans to begin “Baby and Me” yoga classes after her son is born.

“Every class is appropriate for beginners, and we encourage people to start a few times the first week to get acclimated to the room,” she said.
