Hella Hot Aurora (formerly Bikram Yoga Aurora ) is a hot yoga & hot Pilates studio located in Aurora, Illinois, that primarily teaches the therapeutic sequence of 26 hatha yoga postures and 2 breathing exercises of the Original Hot Yoga (Bikram yoga method). Suitable for all ages and abilities, our certified instructors offer 90-minute and 60-minute Original Hot Yoga classes in a room heated to 105 degrees Fahrenheit with 40% humidity. We also offer Inferno Hot Pilates (a Tabata interval training), 60-minute class, with the room cooler at 95 degrees. Our students enjoy our freshly circulated, forced air, state-of-the-art HVAC system, that is capable of delivering the best Hot Yoga & Hot Pilates experience each and every class.

Our founder is a businesswoman who tried Bikram Yoga (back in 2005) as a way to decrease stress, improve focus, and heal chronic back pain. She fell in love with the Bikram Yoga practice and discipline then soon decided to get her Bikram certification (graduated Birkram Yoga Teacher Training Fall 2011). Instructors at Hella Hot Aurora attended a nine-week intensive teacher training course that is more than 500 hours long and is certified by Bikram Choudhury to ensure his methods, lineage, and philosophy are preserved and properly taught. Along with Bikram Yoga Teachers, we also support & staff OHYA (Original Hot Yoga Association) Certified Yoga Instructors as well, all of which coincides with OHYA's mission statement, "To preserve and promote the therapeutic practice of Original Hot Yoga by creating and upholding standards and resources for studios, teachers, classes and teacher training." Our Inferno Hot Pilates Teachers have been trained and mentored by the founder and creator, Gabriella Walters.


Our Mission is to create a community of students and staff rooted in yoga and Pilates fitness that provides accessible practice and classes while promoting and empowering emotional, physical, mental, and social health and wellness.


We are a solely independent, woman-owned business and opened originally as an approved Bikram Yoga affiliated school that remains autonomous since we opened in Fall 2013. We thoroughly believe in the health benefits of the Original Hot Yoga 26 & 2 sequence and our focus is to bring awareness to our community on how powerful this yoga discipline is to positively enrich lives by healing the body naturally, the way nature intended.

We fully support The Original Hot Yoga Association, and you can find Hella Hot Aurora's studio listing at for more information.
