Welcome to Open Door Yoga!
Open Door is a community based yoga studio in Raleigh, NC that offers classes in Heated Hatha Yoga. Our classes are suitable for everyone; from yoga first-timers to advanced students. We love to explore the potential of yoga, but care most about creating an environment where everyone is truly accepted and welcomed. We invite you to join us and a fastly growing community of Raleigh yoga practitioners to come see how a consistent practice of simple hatha yoga can increase your health, energy, smiles and help you get the most out of our greatest tools: our brains and our bodies!
At Open Door, we've worked hard over the last 7 years to build a studio where a stable, consistent yoga practice was affordable for all. After all, the hard part should be getting through class; not figuring out how you're going to afford to pay for it. Thus, the donation system was born!
However, changing times and technology have necessitated that we incorporate additional payment solutions to better serve our students and keep our DOORS OPEN :-). Therefore, albeit a little reluctantly, Monica and the Open Door Team have entered the digital payment age. While we will still be keeping the traditional payment method of drop-in cash and credit card donations, we have also added a new online payment system as additional convenience which opens up new options to our students like monthly passes and single class advance payments.
Open Door Payment Options Include:
Sliding Scale Drop-in: $7-$16
Monthly Unlimited: $135
10 Class Pass (two month expiration): $120
More passes coming soon! Stay tuned.
You can purchase a pass online by clicking the link below. Drop-In purchases are good only for classes that day.
New Students - Welcome to Open Door Yoga!
At Open Door, we believe there are yoga friends we already know, and those we look forward to getting to know in the future! Here are a few tips to help you prepare for your first class:
- Come at least 20 minutes early for your first class & be prepared to sweat!
- Prepare your body by hydrating during the day.
- Wear light weight clothing that is fitted but not tight.
- We do not require sticky mats for class, but a towel is a "must." (we rent them for $3 if you forget yours)

How is Our Hot Yoga Teacher Training Program Different?
Rather than seeking to establish or promote one particular style or "brand" of hot Hatha yoga, our founder and lead instructor, Monica Shannon, is strongly focused on the goal of providing each and every student with a solid foundation of asanas of a traditional Hatha Yoga practice which enables students to go forth and build their own unique, personalized programs. With this in mind, she has constructed a well-rounded curriculum, based on her years of experience and thousands of hours teaching students, training teachers, and continuing her own yogic education, that plants the perfect "bija" (or seed) from which each yoga teacher trainee can grow in to their own path in the way that resonates with them.
