Aug 2019


Hiro started practicing yoga in 2002, learning various styles of the asana practice while also dabbling in various movement modalities, from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to basketball and football. Hiro fell into yoga after searching for something to alleviate pain from numerous past injuries and to help make running more enjoyable as it was a passionate hobby that his family shared.


Hiro also studied Biochemistry in university and went on to a graduate medical program in medical pharmacology and cardiopulmonary perfusion. During that time, working in heart and kidney transplant surgical procurement along with open heart bypass surgery, he got to experience first hand part of the inner workings of the body.


After numerous injuries, some during the yoga practice and some outside, Hiro began to pursue a perspective to yoga that would minimize and heal injury along with develop functional strength and flexibility. After seeing tremendous transformations in his own practice and overall health, he applied those same principles to his students and started seeing the same results.


Now Hiro is sharing his unique approach worldwide. Starting from introducing knowledge of the physiology of the human body, using the knowledge in various movement patterns then applying it to a dynamic yoga practice, so that the practitioner is no longer modifying around injury but understanding steps towards healing, and how to expand the practice from a better understanding of anatomy for those looking to advance in their practice and teaching.

Functional Flow (Vinyasa Masterclass).
Friday 16 August 2019 630 – 900pm
Remember what it felt like when we were beginning our yoga journey? The soreness yes, but also a freedom in our bodies that we were not used to, a lightness in our step, the glow in our being. The movements, the shapes, were new to our bodies and the shapes served in increasing the range of function in our bodies. If we are honest, there are a lot of poses that are relatively comfortable for us now. So how can we increase our focus, our range of function, so that we can keep moving towards a better functioning self?


This master class incorporates different mobility exercises within familiar poses. We will introduce different transitions that shift the mental focus from fitting into a shape to making the shape serve a greater functionality in our bodies. The goal is to bring us closer towards the freedom we seek within.

Intelligent Inversions.
Saturday 17 August 2019, 930am – 1200pm

Do you have that one pair of yoga pants that is your “handstand yoga pants?” The pants where every time you put them on, you feel stronger and more confident getting upside down? Don’t leave your practice up to chance! Ditch the pants and come to this class.


Experience what it’s like to fly consistently and confidently in this challenging yet light-hearted workshop. We will break down the elements of inversions as well as explore unique exercises towards helping you access the power already inside of you. Allow yourself to encounter your practice in an elevated way and feel confident in seeing the world from a new perspective, with or without your handstand pants on!

Demystifying Backbends.
Saturday 17 August 2019, 1400pm – 1630pm
Consider the thought that if the ribs, chest and spine are all anchored together, how is the beautiful even arch in backbends achieved in the upper chest? From another perspective, when we speak to the soulful aspect of backbends, opening past our egos allows for the openness of possibility. The duality of the mind and the soul is often seen as two sides of a coin…but is it possible that the mindfulness to the technicals and the soul of the practice can come into harmony?


In this workshop, we will discover the different engagements, common misalignments, and inventive techniques that draw a deeper understanding to the mechanics of backbends. By demystifying the physiology, we will open up space for the soul to find its place in harmony with mindfulness.

Find Strength in Balance (Arm Balance Workshop)
Sunday 18 August 2019, 930am – 1200pm
When you envision the strongest version of yourself, what do you see? Often, we associate physical strength with aggression and in seeking strength, we draw power from aggression. It is important that on our journey of self discovery, we find our strength and power from a place of self-love and compassion.
We will cultivate the harmony of grace and power in our arm balances through deeper body awareness. Learning the tools in this workshop are a mirror for finding the strength in balance off of our mats.

Bend the Spoon.
Sunday 18 August 2019, 1400pm – 1630pm
We all want to give and receive love, but what we really want is to be loved for who we authentically are. When our hearts are closed, we don’t express our full self and therefore, we limit what we allow into our lives: we limit our careers, our relationships, and our love that we want to spread and share.


We will reconnect with ourselves and our authenticity through opening our hearts in a flow that revolves around backbends. As we open up the frontline of our body, we will embrace the power of vulnerability in our heart. As we flow through these asanas and open up, we will create a path that explores backbends in a liberating way to speak into the limitless possibilities in all areas of our lives.


*All levels welcome
