About Us

Our Founder

In January 2012, Karly Urata opened Body Heat Hot Pilates & Yoga® in Las Vegas, Nevada — the area’s first upscale boutique fitness and yoga studio. The idea was to create a cozy spa-like environment with challenging and empowering classes that change both mind and body. Karly immediately fell in love with the idea of helping students reach their fitness and health goals, which was a stark contrast to her real estate and construction background.

In February 2014, Karly opened her second location in Rocklin, California, where she is originally from, adding a third studio room to her business to create more variety and class times for students. In September 2015, Karly opened her third location in Summerlin, an upscale suburb of Las Vegas, Nevada.

As we continue to grow with our students, we are constantly creating new class formats that are challenging to both beginner and advanced practitioners. Our studios offer 12–15 classes so there’s never an excuse not to work out.

See you on the mat!
