The Hot Yoga Spot Franchise Launches, The First Female-Owned Fitness Franchise of the Capital Region

On Tuesday, January 22nd, at a private event in Albany, NY, Jessica Fuller, Owner of The Hot Yoga Spot, joined by County Executive Dan McCoy, announced that the popular hot yoga studio will continue its expansion efforts by launching its franchise operation which will run from the Stuyvesant Plaza location. This will be the first female-owned fitness franchise to ever come out of the Capital Region, a yoga studio brand that already successfully operates 6 locations and recently opened the doors to its organic juice bar, Bare.

This comes after major renovations of its original studio in Albany, which serves as its headquarters, where Jessica added a fourth room to hold anti-gravity/aerial yoga sessions, special events, seminars and workshops; additional locker space and changing areas “designed to provide a spa-like atmosphere with its state-of-the-art showers”; and a Requiescent Float Center to help yogis “find relief from sore muscles and discomfort, decrease stress levels while creating a sense of peace as they use the time to meditate and reset”.

“The love and appreciation students and instructors have for The Hot Yoga Spot continue to overwhelm me,” said Jessica. “This is a partnership and their dedication to their practice and to one another has grown this community into a beautiful force. It’s a gift to be able to share this adventure and I am so proud to be part of their wellness journey. It’s truly a privilege.”

With these renovations now complete, Jessica expects to open another location in the coming months. In addition to the Albany headquarters, the other locations include Binghamton, Clifton Park, East Greenbush, Latham and Saratoga.
