The history of Hot Yoga Bowling Green
Hot Yoga BG was born out of a spirit of pioneering, entrepreneurship, motivation for changing lives, and most of all The Holy Spirit… leading into largely unchartered waters for a Christian couple.
After many years in the corporate world, and working for large companies… Tony and Anice Bishop followed the calling of God, and fulfilled a dream in their hearts to open a health and wellness venue which could change thousands of lives in South Central Kentucky.
Director Tony Bishop left the newspaper business in September of 2006, with a varied background in physical fitness, motivational leadership, music, art, advertising and marketing to train in Hatha Yoga before opening the only Hot Yoga studio between Nashville and Louisville with Hot Yoga Bowling Green President Anice Bishop. With a solid background in banking, Anice took over the helm of the business as Tony prepared to market the uniqueness of Hot Yoga to an area which knew very little about this practice. Anice and Tony have been married for 32 years, and are continuing to work tirelessly to make Hot Yoga BG a ‘cutting edge’ studio, incorporating new and exciting breakthroughs in teacher education, class organization, and enjoyable adaptations…including original and even revolutionary methodology to keep your Yoga practice new and fresh!
In January of 2007, Hot Yoga Bowling Green was born, and the doors opened to overwhelming response. Business has grown, and many lives have been positively affected during the five years the studio has been in operation. With affiliations including The Bowling Green Area Chamber, Better Business Bureau, Yoga Alliance, and such recognitions as National Talk of the Town Customer Satisfaction Award, and 10 categories in Best of Bowling Green, Hot Yoga BG is gearing up for their 5th Anniversary Celebration and pledging many years to come in BG!
Hot Yoga Bowling Green has evolved into a place where you can practice Yoga, but you can also do Yoga… making it an active engagement and part of your life.
- You can experience the joy of being transformational without being metaphysical.
- You will discover that…YES, Yoga is exercise (the most efficient thereof), but it is much more!
- You can connect with a loving Yoga Family who are open, honest, and truly enjoy what we do.
- You will find that it’s OK to talk about God and Jesus Christ in our studio.
