Uttara tried out hot yoga classes as a result of a friends’ recommendation and needless to say, she never turned back! It is not uncommon to find her saying how refreshed and revitalised she feels after a hot yoga session. She had never experienced a form of exercise that made her feel so amazing. With hot yoga, she was able to de-stress, sharpen her focus, recalibrate and connect with herself on a deeper level. It helped her combat the stresses of a high profile corporate job and constant travel. It was the perfect balance she required.
However, she still found that there was too much rigidity and lack of choice in the traditional hot yoga services available. She took it upon herself to improve on this and this is where she met Dr John Surie and the Fire Shaper team. With Bhavik and Uttara’s combination of experience and passion and the backing of the Fire Shaper brand, their vision is to provide a quality hot yoga experience by having a range of flexible programmes to suit various lifestyles. This also means having dedicated and passionate instructors who are genuinely engaging, who live and breathe the hot yoga ethos and who are empowered to improve the lifestyles of their clients. They look forward to sharing their love of yoga with Perth by creating a studio that will bring a scene of community, health, wellness, love, joy and friendship.
