The Peak Physique Hot Yoga story began in 2011 when Michael Calava and Suzanna Calava decided to put their interests and passions for yoga into business. They wanted to create something that was not readily available in Adelaide – a Hot Yoga studio that was affordable, welcoming and central to the Western Suburbs. They wanted to create a space where all Yogies – new and experienced – could come to roll our their mats in a friendly workout environment.
WHAT LEAD MICHAEL AND SUZANNA TO THIS HOT YOGA LIFESTYLE?
Michael and Suzanna have an extensive history in the practice, learning and teaching of yoga. Both have travelled the world to gain new experiences and practice within many different types of yoga styles including Vinyasa, Hatha, Astanga, Power, Bikram, Barkan Method Hot Yoga, AcroYoga (partner yoga), AcroVinyasa and of course Hot Yoga. They are both certified Hot Yoga and AcroVinyasa teachers.
Michael and Suzanna not only share their interest in Hot Yoga – they also share a desire to start something new. Both know the benefits and enjoyment that Hot Yoga offers and so they designed an effective business model to make these benefits available to the public.
Suzanna completed a Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Adelaide and her work background began in accounting and financial planning firms, which is a solid platform to work from. This teamed with Michael’s background in Oral Health along with owning various businesses. This provided them with the perfect foundations to incorporate their everyday passion into their everyday life.
Peak Physique Hot Yoga has a plan – we want to expand and grow, offering our affordable Hot Yoga and other Yoga Classes to all Australians!
By doing this, we aim to build a healthier and less stressful society. Our students leave our classes feeling energized, relaxed and refreshed and this is something that we feel is important for people within our community.
While Yoga is usually seen as a form of Meditation, the heat element of Hot Yoga takes practice to a higher workout level – making new fitness avenues for people looking for an alternative to gyms. We also provide Warm classes where the heat is not elevated to the same as our Hot Yoga classes so we cater for students who do not like the Hot element.
Hot Yoga is not just a workout – it keeps you physically fit as well as mentally healthy at the same time. In our busy, stressful world, people really respond to this and that is why affordable Hot Yoga is the perfect way to provide for todays market.
Our mission is to inspire all students young and old, to take yoga from the class into your everyday life.
