About Fireshaper

Fire Shaper is an evolutionary practice of Hot Yoga. We bring a number of different elements into our controlled heated room which enable you to participate in a way that you may have never imagined.

Hot Yoga Redefined

Hot Yoga evolves to the next level with Fire Shaper.

Fire Shaper has enjoyed a reputation as one of the most well known and respected hot yoga studios in the Tri-state area. For the past 10 years we have brought the unique benefits of hot yoga to New Jersey and New York.

We have now taken hot yoga to the next level. Now known as Fire Shaper, we have redefined the hot yoga experience to its dedicated followers in NJ and NY, and we’re now poised to expand Fire Shaper internationally.

What is Fire Shaper?

Hot yoga is a series of poses, or asana’s, carried out within a heated environment, typically 100 – 105°F, and a humidity of 40% – 50%. Bikram Choudhury had introduced his version of Hot Yoga in the 1970s called Bikram Yoga which, quickly became one of the most adopted yoga practices in the US.

The heat and humidity allows increased results and flexibility in the body, helping you gradually attain your personal best with the poses, whilst simultaneously expelling harmful toxins from your body. It will also assist you with a range of benefits, from losing fat, building core muscles, improving balance, increasing energy, assisting sleep, and decreasing stress.

The combination of the poses and the increased temperature helps stimulate and restore health to your joints, organs, muscles, and immune system whilst detoxifying your body.

With our new and much enhanced suite of yoga classes corresponding with all age and skill levels, Fire Shaper has evolved and redefined both the heated yoga and the traditional yoga experience. Our improved range of classes provides the benefits of the Hot Yoga core-strength and body-shaping practices, with traditional yoga programs, to bring you an entirely new perspective to our philosophy.

Also, when you come along, talk to one of our trainers about becoming a Fire Shaper teacher yourself at one of several Fire Shaper teacher training courses we run.


Our Origin

Fire Shaper is the brainchild of Dr. John Surie and his wife Natalie, both teachers and practitioners at their four studios.

Natalie comes from Australia’s Gold Coast and has practiced hot yoga across the globe, becoming a qualified teacher in 2001. Her husband Dr. John is a licensed chiropractor in the United States and Australia and is currently in active practice in Australia.  A skilled martial artist and certified hot yoga instructor, Dr John began practicing heated yoga when he met Natalie in 2000.

In 2002 they opened their first hot yoga studio in Westwood NJ. Since then the company has evolved from one to four chic studio spaces. Natalie and Dr. John are passionate about bringing the Fire Shaper Hot Yoga experience to as many people as possible, and with the expansion of the Fire Shaper studio family worldwide, that dream has fast become a reality.

Hot Yoga has been redefined as Fire Shaper – be part of the journey with us.
