Core+ Hot Pilates

This class is taught by:

Krushi Shah

Krushi remembers her first Bikram class being a very hot and very sweaty experience. But she walked out of the room feeling amazing. Since then, Krushi’s practice has given her energy, positivity, and has been incredibly healing both mentally and physically.

Krushi completed her Core+ Hot Pilates teacher training in December 2015 and still says it’s one of the best decisions she’s ever made. It not only opened her life to a whole range of beautiful people, it has also been the perfect complement to yoga. Teaching has inspired her to further her yoga journey and she hopes to be teaching yoga soon.

Nicky Bondonno

Yoga is the calm amongst the madness that is Nicky’s life. Nicky’s mind is constantly moving, but when she steps into the yoga studio, either to practice or to teach, the outside world disappears.

Nicky has been dancing for almost 15 years and always loved the feeling of moving with control and purpose. She fell in love with yoga the moment she stepped into her first vinyasa class four years ago. And it was the same with Core+ Hot Pilates. She’s gained so much strength from pilates, which has enriched her yoga practice immensely. When the opportunity arose to become a Core+ Hot Pilates teacher Nicky jumped at it immediately.

Jaime Healing

Jamie was a netball junkie, playing up to five days a week. But when she had a knee reconstruction she needed to do something that was low impact - that's when she heard of Bikram Yoga.

She took her first class in March 2012 and it was truly amazing. She had this euphoric feeling during the class she’d never felt before. And on her 6th class she was able to sit cross-legged – for the first time in two years. By 2015 her knee was strong enough to try Core+Hot Pilates. It was hard and so much fun, she couldn't wait for the next class, so when the opportunity of teaching came up she could not resist.

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.

These classes are seriously upbeat and incorporate traditional mat pilates exercises, plus a revolutionary mix of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and weight work to strengthen your core and tone your body. Each class will follow a similar sequence but the order and focus will vary from class to class. Suitable for all fitness levels, these classes are high-energy and great fun thanks to a playlist of inspiring beats. Plus, you’ll burn calories and detoxify your body as each class is performed in a thermo-controlled room at 32-34°C with 40% humidity. It will be one of the best workouts you’ve had and will leave you feeling energised and inspired!
