With a lifelong foundation of Mixed-Martial-Arts and classical ballet, Paulo was drawn to Yoga for its ability to hone the body, mind, and spirit. Paulo completed his 500-hour training, in his hometown of Los Angeles, with Yogaworks. Paulo believes his physical background and intensive Yoga training has prepared him to help anyone feel better about their body and their movement. Paulo moved to Edmonds in early 2016 and is making the necessary steps to eventually attend the University of Washington’s Doctorate program in Physical Therapy. Paulo hopes to share his experience and love through Yoga while also bringing more practical knowledge of physiology that will allow students to digest the potential that correct alignment can offer. Paulo’s style is influenced by a lineage of Ashtanga and Iyengar Yoga, but he considers himself a Slow-Flow Power Yoga teacher. It is not just about sweating and stretching; it is about exploring unknown corners of mind, body, and spirit through breath and movement.
Paulo instructs the following:

Paulo Private Class
Our hot yoga classes are the most popular classes at Bindi Yoga! Simply put, hot yoga is yoga postures performed in a heated room. These classes are primarily hatha based, but our instructors like to add a flowing element to classes which add internal heat and energy. Each class and each teacher teaches differently to bring variety as well as variations and modifications to each class.
The temperature and humidity may vary depending on class time and number of students, but we try and make the atmosphere the same for each class. We keep our heated room to around 105 degrees (Hot Power Vinyasa classes range from 95-100 degrees). We are aware that humidity can cause serious overheating and over exhaustion, therefore we opt for a dryer heat by excluding a humidifier which most hot yoga studios in the area have.
If you have any questions about Hot Yoga at Bindi Yoga before taking a class, please let us know! All of our instructors are here to help in any way possible.
