My wife was having a very stressful day so i decided to take her to Hot Yoga Here. By the end she was the most relaxed person in my life ( she almost fell asleep while driving back so i had to take over ). She mentioned that there were several different teachers and a buch of different sessions and times to go. Overall, relaxation to the max!

This is the best yoga class I've been to anywhere. And I've tried yoga everywhere in Houston and out of Houston. Nothing compares. Darla Magee is the best intructor you could ask for. She's not afraid to tell anyone they are doing something wrong, and she does it with such grace so that you feel great about your yoga and are able to grow in your practice. She gets maximum effort from all her student with her fun-loving personality - truly caring and loving and tons of fun. She works with beginner students and advanced students in the same class, which most instructors are not able to do so successfully. And there are no two classes exactly the same, which gives the best results for total body improvement. The results from working hard in her classes are amazing. My body feels so great after her classes. The more hot yoga with Darla I do, the hotter my body looks and feels. I have never been healthier or stronger. You are not practicing yoga if you're not practicing yoga with Darla.

Pros: Darla, the yoga

Cons: none

.

At first the heat was a struggle (or may it was my spare tire??) But in short order, I found that I could do all those things that had looked impossible on day one. Hot yoga is the best....no, Hot Yoga Here is the best. I tried a couple other places, just to make sure! But nothing compares to the feeling of safety and caring that Darla creates. She helped me move forward but giving me the confidence to remove all those mental barriers that limited my physical movement.
I always thought that if I felt a lot of heat, it meant that I missed paradise and was off with the Devil. But I found myself instead in Paradise with an Angel.

Pros: I feel like a million for only a few bucks

Cons: What? Cons? Not a one!

.

I love Hot Yoga Here?s unique style. I?ve been to the other ?hot yoga? places and they weren?t my style. (i.e.: not hot enough, or overbearing style of instructors). Over time, Darla has become a friend as well as my favorite instructor. I used to get upset when I couldn't do my yoga class because of scheduling, heavy work load, or whatever. Then, Darla taught me that a Yogic Life is about balance of ALL things. Darla was showing me this by having her priorities straight herself and was bettering herself to give us a more-rounded yoga teaching. I used to be the typical Type-A, over-worked guy. But oddly enough, this yoga teacher showed me that I wasn?t honoring myself, my family, or my spirit. Even my yoga class was ?on auto-pilot?. So now, if I can't make a class, it?s my opportunity to ?get out of my rut? and surprise one of my friends with dinner, take a walk with a loved one, call my nieces and nephews and get reacquainted. Thanks to Darla for bringing out the best in me!

Pros: Best teacher and instruction, awesome total bodyworkout

Cons: Only one of these exists!

.

The yoga is hot and hard but Darla makes it fun. I've been going there for three years and she still makes it a challenge by designing classes each week that are "the same but different" meaning you will know what the class is about but poses my be in a different order or a new one or two thrown in. This keeps it very exciting. The studio is not fancy but it is very clean (no smelly carpet), just nice tile floor. You will leave there knowing you just did something that will make you feel better, physically and mentally.

Hot Yoga Here is the BEST hot yoga in town. Darla is classically trained in Bikram, but has continued her yoga education in other styles as well, so you aren't limited to the same old routines. She customizes each class to accommodate different physiques and fitness levels - and you ALWAYS get a great workout! I love Hot Yoga Here!

Olivia may have THOUGHT she was "getting physical" and looked plenty cute bouncing around her gym. But Darla really makes US get physical in ways and positions I never thought possible. Darla gently encourages us to progress at our own rate along our own path. And Olivia has nothing on Darla; in fact, Darla had the good sense to turn down "Xanadu"!

My first time I spent wondering how human could possibly grab their foot from behind and balance on the other. Today, after gentle encouragement, it sometimes even happens for me! Darla helps you understand that each practice is YOUR practice and that you will do your best for that time. You cannot find a better instructor who offers a better balance of traditional postures, stretches and even (aughhhh) ab work! No need to search futher -- it's Hot Yoga Now -- where every sip of quenching water refreshing like a crisp Sauvignon Blanc.

Darla has gone above and beyond the instructors role to change up the same ole, same ole 26 posture series into a dynamic workout that will make visible changes in your body after practicing consistently for just a short time. There is always something new to learn in the class and Darla is on a neverending mission to attend teacher training classes all over the country to bring you the right stuff that you need to move past any plateaus. I've been to the franchise studios in town - but after practicing at HYH, I cant imagine going back. Dont waste anymore time with Bikram's "situp"...

Returning to Houston after living on the West Coast, I was concerned about finding a good yoga studio. Having practiced yoga over the past 14 years; it's an important part of my life. Houston is known for having great food and great people, but a great yoga studio with a great teacher was never it's strong suit. Hot Yoga Here and Darla have changed my opinion. Darla's committment to her students' health and well being is what I noticed the most. She knows each student, what their strengths are and where they need her guidance. She was very welcoming and made me feel right at home. The classes are amazing. This is not a regurgitated Bikram script. She combines sunsalutations, balancing postures and is always changing the flow of the class. Her silent classes with music are the best stress relief after a hard day at the office. I have noticed a change over the last 3 months in my body, my attitude and my overall wellness. I definitely recommend Hot Yoga Here to anyone looking for a good studio and more importantly a great teacher like Darla.

With consistent attendance, you will definitely achieve your personal fitness goals, whether it's weight loss, toning and re-shaping your upper or lower body, or relieving stress--Darla makes it clear from your first class with her that she is there to help you on your journey to a healthier, happier life.

I have been practicing for about 2 years with Darla at Hot Yoga here, and the class has evolved tremendously. As a yoga fanatic, I have practiced all over town and I assure you there is no hotter, sweatier studio. The postures and routines are challenging. However, it is not the class, it is Darla. She is so loving and encouraging, so accepting and generous, she inspires you to do things you didn't think possible. And that is the best feeling in the world, accomplishing something you didn't think you could do.

I recommend this studio to anyone of any age who wants to lose weight, get in shape, rehab an injury, or learn how to relieve stress. Believe me, after one of Darla's 6:30 p.m. classes, you will sleep like a log, no matter what happened at the office that day!

After years of doing the running, swimming, and biking thing, I needed something to help my body heal! Having never tried yoga until Darla's amazing class, I am a student of hers for life! Her class was everything I was looking for and she made me feel right at home from the very beginning. Her warm personality ( and HOT room) made the experience not only fun, but very informative as she also coached me on technique. She is very focused and in tune to all her students at the same time! I recommend Hot Yoga Here to anyone looking for a new way to keep your body in shape and heal it at the same time!

Pros: Simply the yoga + instruction

.

I've done yoga all around the country, specifically hot yoga (Bikram). I've even been lucky enough to do hot yoga with Bikram as the instructor (even his beautiful wife as well). I've noticed that where the "heat" is high, like in Los Angeles, the students seemed to get something extra out of the class. I've found the Hot Yoga Here has very consistent high heat, more so than any of the other studios here in Houston, even those franchised to Bikram with his name on the studio.

There's something else that I'll call "high-vibes" that come from this simple back-to-basic studio. No, they don't have a fancy lobby or valet parking, they do have simple clean dressing rooms with showers, and that's enough. But the wonderful feeling of happiness or completeness that comes from doing yoga in. well, a yogic setting, is awesome! Very few places across the country accomplish this! I'm glad to be here in Houston where I can attend regularly. I'm not sure how Darla does this, but it is undeniable. I've talked with other yogis in the parking lot about how special this place is, and most of them get exactly what I'm talking about. Some newbies have to leave here, just to come back, and then it's as if a light went off for them. "Oh!! Now I get it!" they'll say with a big smile.

Darla has a way to get you to go as far as you can gently, without being militaristic. She doesn't force anyone to go into pain or injure themselves. Having just two teachers allows them to actually know each students name and their yoga practices as well. I get the feeling that I'm a lot more that a number here, that I'm appreciated for my consistent practice, not because it pays the light bill, but because, as a budding yogi, they can see that I have a genuine love for what true yoga can do.

Darla has somehow gotten back to the Root of Yoga, and for that I'll very grateful.

there is not another Hot Yoga studio in Houston that can compare to Darla's Hot Yoga Here. Her attention to student's postures and abilities makes the difference. I have taken Hot Yoga all over Houston looking for the right place for me, Hot Yoga Here is the one. Everyone is friendly and it's not a place where you have to be "someone" EVERYONE is "someone". It is also not stinky, nor "smokey"- it is not a fancy place- it is just a very hot room where people are serious about yoga. After just a few months with Darla my practice and my body have transformed! My overall fitness is better- and the state of calm is no longer a foreign land!

What a great workout! Exactly what I have been needing all these years; an abs and upper body workout! And the changes! The jello gut is turning into a plate of steel. My calves and thighs are becoming sculpture. Who would ever believe how much fun it is to sweat! The music is choice, cosmic, class.
There is only one Darla, superstar. I have seen progress in myself that even I find hard to believe, but am convinced we may all be becoming superstars as well. One big supernova. The group is fun. We all seem to be pretty cosmic athletes. We exercise with a lot of humor tossed in, thanks to Darla. When I miss class, I really miss it a lot. Yes, yes, yes. It is a superlative five star on my vote. Double checked.

What a great workout! Exactly what I have been needing all these years; an abs and upper body workout! And the changes! The jello gut is turning into a plate of steel. My calves and thighs are becoming sculpture. Who would ever believe how much fun it is to sweat! The music is choice, cosmic, class.

Pros: Best of the best. Transforming. Just right.

Cons: Life is short.

I?ve been doing Bikram-style hot yoga for several years now. I lost 30+ lbs! Then Darla added some upper-body and abdominal postures to our practice. OMG! What a difference! I didn?t realize just how much that traditional hot yoga missed those parts. Now after a few months of this new and exciting practice, my shirts are fitting better and I have to keep tightening my belt to keep my pants on! It really has strengthened my body and my life as well. Now, if I could just use this new discipline to keep the pizza away?

Pros: Great instruction, clean carpet-free room, very hot!

I took 2 sessions of Hot Yoga somewhere else after a friend recomended it. I needed strength, better health, fat loss and more energy. The sessions I took at another place were good, but left me wanting more. I heard about Darla's class and went a few days later. It was exactly what I needed. Darla is a blessing to my physical, spiritual and emotional health. Spread the word. Hot Yoga Here is the best.

Pros: Perfect instruction, guidance for all levels and workout

Cons: Wish there were more/different times offered

.

That's what it's like when you practice at Hot Yoga Here -- you'll feel like you are in the hands of an angel. Darla gives everyone individual guidance so gently and in such a caring way. I was a little fearful going into hot yoga, with both age and inflexibility reeking havoc with my body and soul. Darla created a safe place for me to practice at my own pace (so I didn't have to be intimidated by that 20-something dancer stretching next to me). Hot Yoga Here and my special angel Darla have changed my outlook on life.

Pros: The yoga is hot, Darla, Darla, Darla

Cons: No cons allowed here

Darla Magee teaches an excellent hot yoga class. Because she has trained with many different yoga professionals, she is able to give you the best of all worlds in your practice and no two of her classes are just alike. I have tried hot yoga at many different places in Houston and the surrounding areas, and her class is by far the best. The health aspect: since I was a pre-teen, I have had scoliosis in my lower back. It's not 100% straight, but the curviture has straighened by about 12 degrees, and if it can do that for the spine, it's doing that and much more for the rest of my body. Since taking her classes, I have never felt better and if I must skip classes for too many days, I don't feel good physically, which means the yoga is really working. So if you're looking for a great place to do hot yoga, why go with second best when the best is right here?

Update... I have continued to loose weight, lowest since 1999. The room is as hot as ever and I love the new poses, they keep everything fresh and really work those muscles. Even with the extreme practice, Darla keeps it light and fun with her offbeat humor.

I used to do the gym thing. Weights, treadmill, weights treadmill, blah, blah, blah. I got big working out alright big butt, big gut, even a big neck. Nothing fit, it was awful. Then I found Hot Yoga and Darla. I dont have a scale, but I lost 4 inches off my waist and I can button my shirt collars. People have guessed I lost 30-35 lbs! I had forgotten how good it felt being in a comfortable, functional, energetic body. I hadnt felt this good since I was 25, maybe even better! Darla has lead me step-by-step through this journey. I cannot thank her enough for her precise instruction and sweet encouragement. The studio is a basic. Nothing to interrupt the yoga. If I walk in the room with feeling the stress of the day, its completely gone when I walk out. Hot Yoga with Darla changed my life!

Why wouldn't you do something that strenghthens you both physically and mentally? Add to that the increased flexibility you will receive - it's really a no-brainer. Darla is the most giving of any instructors. She is so caring and will work with you to achieve your best. Her encouragement is sincere and makes a tremendous difference in the practice. If you're unsure, try it once. You will become as addicted as I have become. Besides, you're worth it!

Hot Yoga Here is a one of a kind yoga studio. Darla is attentive to each student and takes the time to teach the proper form. Her spirit and sense of humor add a refreshing element to the hot yoga experience. The lighting and music also add a lovely ambiance to the classes.
Darla modifies the exercises for those with injuries who need more specialized instruction. Somehow, she keeps track of everyone and makes everyone feel special and welcome.
Initially, I practiced hot yoga to get in shape. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I've become less stressed, more relaxed and have a better outlook on life. You'll be amazed at how this can change your life. Beware, once you see how better you feel and look, you'll become addicted to it.

I was invited by a friend and was not sure, but after I went you can't get me to stop. I am an official HOT JOGI. When I don't go I miss it, I have an overall good feeling about myself in spirit. I leave everything else behind and enjoy the feeling of being welcome into the class. I highly recommend to come and join us, the people in the class are just as fun!

I love doing this yoga, and I wouldn't do it anywhere but at Darla's studio. The atmosphere is perfect... not a "see and be seen" kinda place, everyone there is friendly and real and focused on their own practice. Even though there are many toned people there, every body type is completely welcome -- it's a non-issue. And the personal attention is fabulous! I have a bad back and Darla's attention is wonderful -- making sure your needs are met while moving the class along at a focused but non-stressful pace. It's the ONLY thing that keeps my injury 100% medication and pain free. It will truly change your life!

This is hot yoga at it's best ...no pretention, no frills, no attitude...just a good, sound and safe practice from a highly knowledgable and endearing teacher with a passion for what she does. The result is a place rich with a lovely karma that draws a wonderful crowd of people... and yoga stripped down to what's important...focus, form, wholeness and peace. Oh, and did I mention that Darla has a wonderful sense of humor and a truly welcoming spirit?
Be prepared for a very sweaty good time that just might change your life.

Before I discovered Darla and hot yoga here I was always afraid of the heat. But this instructor and the practice of hot yoga have truly changed my life. My mind is more focused, my body is limber, and the aches and pains I lived with on a day to day basis for years are now a thing of the past. Darla is warm, caring, and reminds us that we don't "do" yoga, we practice. Each session my body changes, each class is a unique journey of mind and body. Positive, spiritual, beneficial, supportive, sweet, caring. Join us. We welcome you. (PS - I've dropped inches in the process, and look years younger!)

If you've never done Hot Yoga, or you've done it elsewhere and hated it, you have to try Hot Yoga Here with Darla! There's no pretention, no fashion show, and no juice bar... just lots of heat, lots of encouragement, and lots of Darla. Since she teaches every class personally, she gets to know each student on a personal level. Not only who has bad backs, knees, feet, etc., but who needs the hottest spot, who likes to be near the humidifier, and who needs extra encouragement or supervision. Her style truly embraces the union of body, mind, and soul because she puts her heart and soul into every class! You owe it to yourself to feel the heat and the love!

For years I ran, worked out at the gym and then one day, I was just burned out...for several years I did nothing except "think" about getting back into shape. But, I had no inspiration or motivation. And then, I received a coupon in the mail for Hot Yoga. What a great gift...after one class I was hooked. Not only is hot yoga physically challenging but there is the additional gift of "mentally melting away" the cares of the day. And then there's the best gift of having an instructor, Darla who shares her sweet spirit, insight and strength with you. I don't see ever not wanting to go to Hot Yoga!

Hot Yoga has been the inspiration/motivation that I needed to get off the couch. Cheers to Darla and Hot Yoga!

Unique Bikram environment! I have had close to 20 different Bikram Yoga teachers across the country, and Darla Magee somehow gets me to do the postures happily, while the others seem to force me in a my-way-or-the-highway attitude. I've been to Darla 's other studios, and this one is the best! She keeps the heat at a hot temp, like Bikram does in his L.A. Studio. The other studios I've been to are noticeably colder. (I'm assuming when Bikram visits, they crank it up to specifications.) Also, her Hot Yoga Studio has no sweat-filled carpet, just polished linoleum! Thank you for that as well!

These classes are hot and sweaty. The room has a tile floor with out the usual smelly carpet. Darla's still teaching her awesome no-nonsense Bikram Yoga classes and the other yogis are friendly and welcoming. There is no lobby- or expensive furniture- but there are small showers and plenty of restrooms. Tucked behind a temple- their gardens are peaceful and serene- a nice place to relax before and after class.

In yoga, form is very important. I've been to yoga classes where the instructor never corrected my form or anyone else's. Darla is attentive to details like form and even watches facial expressions to know to ask if you are in pain. She is great at adapting postures to accomdate you if you have certain medical conditions or limitations. Darla takes her work with you seriously and you definitely get value from her classes....and she's lots of fun!

Darla's instructions are the best I have seen for this style of yoga. When traveling to other studios, other instructors have commented on the techniques which I have been taught. I have practiced at three studios with her and the current location is the most peaceful and intimate. This will be the best 90 minutes that you spend for yourself.
