On the heels of our success with East Lansing Hot Yoga, my former business partner, Tom Anton, and I, looked around for other communities that might be craving a hot yoga studio...Mt. Pleasant was an easy choice! We found the perfect location in a former dance studio at 115 South Main, fell in love with the downtown scene, opened in December of 2012, and were soon sharing our love of the hot room with a wonderful cross section of CMU students and faculty, community members, and people commuting from Clare, Midland, and other nearby towns and cities.

Now I'm going solo, and have added two more studios, Firefly Hot Yoga Bar in downtown Lansing, and Haslett Hot Yoga, to our hot yoga (and barre fusion) loving family.

I've been blessed beyond measure to have an exceptional group of teachers and workers at MTPHY. I try to get up there as much as possible (it helps that my family is in the Traverse City area, and Mt. P is right on the way), love love love everything about Mt. Pleasant, and look forward to many more years of sharing the hot room with such a beautiful and welcoming community.                                                                                                                      -Patty Sutherland
