Hot Flow (Vinyasa)

This class is taught by:

Kanako Sato

Kanako, originally from Japan, practiced a number of styles of yoga before she found Bikram. When she did however, it was love at first class. From there her passion and even obsession with the practice grew and she finds that yoga makes her a healthy, strong, better and positive person and yoga is now part of her life.  Kanako feels truly humbled and grateful for the opportunity to share this with others.

With certifications in Bikram Yoga, Power Vinyasa and Yin Yoga, she teaches in a way that encourages students to share the positive energy, have fun and explore their maximum potential by trying the right way in the moment of stillness.

Before embarking on her first teacher training in September 2011, she was daunted by the idea of standing in front of a class, but she took inspiration from her many teachers and then her fellow trainees and she knows that anything is possible when it’s done with love and passion. She now wants to inspire students through teaching and practicing together

Tarra Bishop

Tarra’s initial thought about yoga was “how can I possibly do yoga when I can’t even touch my toes?” A thought which now makes her laugh.

Her love for yoga truly began in 2014 when she started to practice regular Bikram yoga classes. It was a great way to build a sweat, exercise, and stretch. She later started to discover different elements of herself and learnt to expand both mentally and physically.

From there she wanted to learn more and started to practice other styles of yoga including Vinyasa yoga - this gave her a chance to build strength and create flexibility in the mind and body. After consistent practice and dedication she decided to complete her 200hr teacher-training course, which has been one of the best decisions, she has ever made.

Jean-Paul Barbier

Jean-Paul moved to Perth from the Seychelles Islands in 2005. He tried out Bikram yoga and after the first class vowed never to come back, as he was on his knees for most of the class. But strangely felt this intense feeling of bliss later that night. He decided to try bikram again the next week - eventually was planning his day around Bikram.

Bikram bought a lot of clarity to Jean-Paul’s life. There became a clear separation between work and home life, he had a greater appreciation for the smaller things in life, and became a happier person generally.

When his local studio started offering vinyasa classes. It blew him away. Eventually Vinyasa become his main practice. Six months later he was drawn into the teacher-training program. Midway through the training, he realised teaching was something he truly loved doing. Jean-Paul teaches Vinyasa in addition to his day job. He loves the balance.

Claire McAteer

Claire’s partner gave her the push she needed to attend her first BIkram class. A very competitive person by nature, one of the greatest lessons she had the blessing of learning through yoga is that it’s not a race, once you step into the hot room all egos gets left at the door. And it’s these lessons that keep her coming back. The overriding sense of community Claire feels when she’s at the studio was a big part of wanting to teach Core+ Hot Pilates, which she started in June 2016 and she’s never looked back.

Jo Harvey

A desire for greater flexibility drew Jo, Yoga Tree Perth owner, to yoga in her early 20s. But it was after a hot yoga class she felt the magic. She left with a sense of accomplishment, calm, and energy she’d never felt before. Her fascination with this ancient science of yoga took off.

Jo was working as an accountant and her family was experiencing some challenging times. Both made Jo think about her life and what she could do with it. This put her on the path of a nine week teacher training in Hawaii in 2007. And she’s been teaching ever since. Jo’s gone on to complete a 200-hour Power Living Vinyasa training, plus an additional 200 hours in India and has completed her pilates training. Jo loves the combination of yoga and pilates and its ability to balance herself and her students. She continues to be inspired by her teachers but also her students.

The practice and process of yoga has been so transformative for her. Jo hopes to encourage her students to cultivate the same devotion, passion, and trust to allow the transformation within them.

Flow yoga is a dynamic form of asana movement synchronising breath with movement, evolved from the original teachings of Hatha Vinyasa Yoga. It awakens strength, energy, cardiovascular activity and flexibility in a fun atmosphere, whilst sweating it out in a nice 32-34°C. The classes start dynamically with fluid movements and breathing, slowing towards the end into longer posture holds, allowing for a deep release. This fun and addictive class is also blended with a modern day philosophy of how to live life authentically and consciously, both on and off the mat, cultivating a healthy body, quiet mind, open heart and vibrant spirit.
