HotCore Yoga Staff
At 15 Peter Sklivas began his practice of meditation. His 35+ years experience includes TM, Dzochen Tibetan Buddhism, Bikram’s 500-Hr Yoga Teacher Training (Spring 2000 & Bikram’s 1992 Kripalu staff-only training), ashram pilgrimages to Rishikesh, India & extensive practice with Baron Baptiste. From ’89 to ‘95 as Kripalu Center Staff Peter immersed himself in the many facets of yoga: Hatha, Karma, Bhakti, Pranayama, Kirtan, Jhana & Tantra. As a personal bodyworker for Guru Yogi Amrit Desai, Peter learned so many nuances about body mechanics & the dramatic effects of subtle changes upon the human body. During his Kripalu years he studied under illuminated swamis, yogis & teachers.
In 1999 he opened Yoga Passion where he has taught more than 4000 Bikram, 1000 Kripalu, 1000 Power & 5000 HotCore classes. In 2006 Peter created a new yoga style called HotCore Yoga combining his ecumenical approach of Hot Yoga with core body mechanics, ujaya breath, bandhas, energy lines & psycho-spiritual awareness. Each class with Peter is an exciting adventure into the Higher Self.
