About HYC

We all come to our mats for various reasons. HYC is committed to providing a welcoming, safe, and clean environment where new and experienced yoga practitioners may find that reason.

About Our Studio

Haute Yoga Colorado is the premier hot yoga studio conveniently located at I-25 and Highway 7 in Thornton. We offer 60-and 90-minute classes in the traditional Bikram inspired hot yoga with 26 + 2, hot flow, Kaiute Yoga, non-heated vinyasa, hot Barre, HIIT yoga, kundalini, yin, reiki, and restore. See our Classes page for our full schedule and class descriptions.

Our Studio

We want your entire experience with HYC to be amazing. That is why we designed a state-of-the-art studio with first-class amenities.


The Room

Take your practice to a new level in our serene room with plenty of natural light.  Our space is stocked with a variety of supportive props to help you move into your poses with greater ease, effectiveness, and stability.  

Infrared Heating

Step into the studio and you will immediately feel the therapeutic benefits of our infrared heating system.  Infrared heat warms bodies and objects much like the sun without the damaging rays. No forced air means a much quieter experience. Our room has even heat throughout. You may experience increased flexibility and range of motion and greater pain relief. Not only is our system comfortable, but it is very eco-friendly, using less energy than most other types of heating.


It’s not just the heat, it’s the humidity too! You will start  sweating sooner allowing your muscles to relax helping to prevent injury. Our system provides the perfect balance between heat and humidity to ensure that you have the optimal yoga experience. 


The anti-fatigue mat system will provide additional shock absorption for hips and knees while delivering a stable foundation for all poses. Our flooring is odorless, slip-resistant, and bacteria and mold resilient. Floors are cleaned after each class to ensure you have a healthy experience.

Locker Rooms

Enjoy our spacious locker rooms equipped with showers, vanities, and lockers. We stock all the necessities, making your pre- and post-class experience enjoyable. First time visitors will be provided with a mat and towels.  These items are available for rent or for purchase. 


 We offer yoga supplies and clothing, gifts, and local craft items for sale.

Haute Yoga Colorado’s brand new studio is modern and fashionable with radiant heat, mat flooring, showers, and spacious locker rooms, with all the amenities you will need to get ready for your day.  We also have a retail space with yoga gear, free-trade, gifts, and local craft items.

Our Teachers

Lisa Vogt - Owner

“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.”
– Dalai Lama

Hello!  I’m Lisa Vogt, owner of Haute Yoga Colorado.  For me the key to yoga is compassion. I came to yoga to help with stress and professional burnout. What I found was a supportive community that didn’t ask questions, didn’t demand answers. They were there to help me heal mentally. Great yoga teachers live compassion and I believe, they have helped me live it too.

After retiring from teaching high school social studies and special education for 32 years, I became a certified yoga instructor in both Hot Vinyasa and “Bikram-style” yoga.  I decided it was time to share my love of yoga by opening my own studio where I can help others heal and strengthen their bodies and minds while facilitating inner peace.

I love helping new students realize the benefits of a disciplined yoga practice as well as guiding seasoned practitioners as they continue their yoga journey each day on their mats.

Magaly Brito

Hi, I’m Magaly.  I started teaching at Haute Yoga Colorado in July 2021.  I have been practicing with the studio since February 2021 and recently finished my 200 hour teacher training program with The Hot Room Leadership Institute.

I began practicing yoga when I started to feel unhealthy.  My energy level was low and I had limited flexibility.  A new original hot yoga studio opened up just five minutes from my home and a friend of mine suggested I give it a try.  My very first class was a hot 90 and I have to admit, it was tough.  But, I immediately fell in love with the practice and how it made me feel afterwards.

 Currently you can find me teaching a Haute 60 class on Friday afternoons and subbing when I can.  I would describe my class as rigorous, like a long hike, where the views at the top are so worth the sweat and hard work it takes to get there.  While in my class, you will be guided the proper set up and alignment of the postures.  This will help you deepen your practice and get the most benefit from it.

We are born complete and worthy.

I came to yoga after the birth of my son. I was in a very transformative place, I needed something to help me start to heal. I was introduced to Hot Yoga as a moving meditation. I was skeptical. After a few months of practicing regularly, my life off the mat began to change. 

Looking for more yoga off my mat, I began research into the 8 limbs of yoga and a took up daily practice. I decided that I wanted this permanently in my life and took my 200 hour certification through Odyssey Yoga of Longmont in 2018. I would start teaching Hot Yoga in early 2019.  Loving the community and healing power of yoga, I decided to become certified in Prenatal and Postnatal yoga in the summer of 2019. 

We are conscious energy having a physical experience. The experience is a gift, it’s a miracle, and it is to be appreciated. We show appreciation by accepting our ignorance and seeking out life long knowledge that helps empower the collective energy of the universe. I believe there is a space and a place and a purpose for all. Nothing is good or bad, only different. Subject to our perception as conscious energy.

“I have been impressed with the urgency of doing.  Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do” – Leonardo da Vinci

Hi!  I’m Amanda Meader and I am honored and excited to be a part of Lisa’s Haute Yoga Studio!

My passion for health and fitness led me, 16 years ago, to become a certified fitness instructor.  Employed as an IBM Project Manager for the past 20 years, I needed another outlet physically as well as mentally. After my introduction to Hot Yoga in 2004, I was hooked!

I am inspired by the mental and physical challenges yoga provides, along with the spiritual/intellectual clarity possible through practice. With my newfound passion for Hot Yoga, I wanted to take it deeper and share it with others. With my newfound passion for Yoga, I wanted to take it deeper and share it with others; as a result, I completed my 200-hour teaching training in 2015.  For the past five  years I have taught   primarily Bikram Style Hot Yoga and Baptiste Style Power Yoga.  Through teaching  I came to understand my practice better and recognized the need to impart to my students the idea that yoga is more than simply a physical activity, while at the same time providing them genuine inspiration.  To achieve these new goals, in 2020,  I embarked on  and completed my 300-hour journey with Gina Caputo’s  Integrated Vinyasa™ Yoga at the Colorado School of Yoga.

I enjoy sharing my love for yoga by instructing compassionately with an added athletic style. With my health and fitness background, I believe it’s important to not only reveal and emphasize the proper form and alignment of a posture, but the mechanics behind it.

I strive to provide a class where my students feel challenged yet in control, so what they learn on their mat empowers them to take on anything they face off the mat!

I look forward to seeing you in one of my classes soon!

It’s your road, and yours alone, others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you. ~ Rumi. 

I took my first yoga class in 1999 while living in Atlanta, GA and teaching Pilates at a local studio.  As a classically trained ballet and modern dancer, I was immediately drawn to the physical nature of Ashtanga Yoga and quickly fell into a steady practice.  When I moved to Boulder in 2002 I had the opportunity to study with some amazing teachers, and over the course of the next 15 years I completed teacher trainings with Richard Freeman (200 hours), CorePower Yoga (400+ hours),  the Colorado School of Yoga (300 hours), and Yoga Loft/Avita Yoga (200 hours).

In addition, I hold my Masters Degree in Holistic Nutrition and have most recently completed the first teacher training in the United States in Kaiut Yoga with Francisco Kaiut and Kaiut International (300 hours). Although my background also includes hot yoga, Pilates and Power Yoga, I currently focus on Integrated Vinyasa, Yin and Kaiut.  In addition to being the Assistant Manager at CorePower Yoga in South Boulder from 2010-2012, I was also a co-owner of Yoga Loft in South Boulder from 2012-2015.  Even though I left studio ownership, I stayed on in various management roles over the past few years, most recently as the Director of the Yoga Department for the Colorado Athletic Club. 

I teach my classes with a light-hearted, honest and fun approach, with strong attention on alignment, breath and focus. I hope to help my students find true health and happiness in their bodies through the practice of yoga.

Be patient with yourself.  Nothing in nature blooms all year round. 

Life sometimes can be really messy!  I mean that figuratively as well as literally.  I have been married to my best friend, Jesse for the past 25 years.  We have been so blessed to have 10, (yes, that’s correct) 10 beautiful and amazing children ages three to twenty-one.

I didn’t know that I would fall in love with yoga; I didn’t know what “Yoga” could mean.  As a certified Barre instructor, I learned how the underlying subtleties of yoga work together with my Barre practice to create strength and flexibility. I have found my leadership skills through movement and strength. They have helped me to embrace the beauty of healing, alignment, and the ability to join our mind, body, soul, and spirit.  Because of this, I can help others to own their own stories.

Barre has offered me a place of safety, encouragement, strength, and excellence. After realizing how fun it would be to introduce my practice to yoga practitioners, I set about creating my own version of Haute Barre. Barre uses many techniques found in physical therapy. If you have a favorite, let me know. Good chance I can work it in. If you have any injuries, conditions, or need modifications, please let me know.  I want your experience to be safe and pleasurable.
