Its mission is to provide Hot Yoga and Power Yoga in a green and clean contemporary environment, with state of the art infrared heating and internationally certified teachers.
Yoga Republic will be the only hot yoga studio in Phuket to have an infrared heating system. This clean, eco-friendly and non-allergenic heat therapy system has been making waves in the health world, as not only does the infrared create an ideal environment for practising yoga, but it also stimulates an anti-inflammatory response that can improve arthritis, decrease pain and speed up the process of soft muscle tissue repair.
Two forms of yoga will be offered, Hot Hatha Yoga, which is heated to approximately 38 degrees, as well as Power/Vinyasa Yoga, which is a more moderate 30-32 degrees. In the coming months, Kids’ Yoga will also be offered by Yoga Republic.
The concept is being led by Jack Farras, who opened the very first Bikram Yoga studio in Bali in 2008. Originally from Australia, he now brings his passion, tremendous energy and vast experience to the island of Phuket.
In addition to offering hot yoga, Yoga Republic will also be opening Bangtao’s first juice bar, which will use local fruit and vegetables to help replenish the body. It will also launch a hip and affordable yoga clothing range called ‘Figa Lifestyle’.
The classes will be available for drop-ins or through various packages designed for Phuket residents and tourists visiting the island. In addition to regular classes, Jack will be holding special two-10 day yoga, transformation and meditation retreats. The retreats will include wholesome healthy Thai meals, beautiful accommodation and the opportunity to connect with fellow yogis in a stunning beach environment.
