    Kata Hot Yoga

    We had the great pleasure to visit Kata beach and Kata Yoga studio - in Phuket/Thailand – for a short week in March 2016. Kata Beach is a calm place with a lot of nice people. Kata yoga studio is an highly proffesional yoga studio, always filled with sunshine in the afternoon. We had hot yoga every day in the evening, and the best fresh coconuts afterwards. The owner, Govert and his wife Nong were a nice company throughout the whole week. "Early mornings» for all of us every day, and "silent walk" on the beach with strengthening exercises before breakfast:-)

    Govert and Nong took us around to several nice places in the local area, for typical Thai massage, lunch with nice local food, and to "the great Budda" – a Buddist temple that is still under construction. Our trip to the natural heated steam room - a sauna heated with burning wood, was a special and nice experience.

    We had the most wonderful days at Kata beach with Govert and Nong as our ”hosts”. We travelled all the way from Norway, and we felt us at once at home at Kata Beach. A beautiful beach, with restaurants and fantastic sea view and gorgeous local food. "

    Nice studio, good teachers. For beginners and advanced. Kata Hot Yoga is our favourite in Phuket. Best coconuts after class!

    While reading some of the reviews, I've come to notice that a People don't know the difference between yoga and hot yoga.

    Hot yoga is more intense because of the higher temperature

    I've visited Kata Yoga on multiple occasions and the quality of tracking is high. The staff is friendly and helpful. Nong & Govert are doing a great job!!

    Since the humidity in Thailand is a bit higher, I would advice to bring water into the class. Afterwards, coconuts are available for 70 bath. Showers are in the dressing room.

    My husband and I have done Bikram Yoga in the past, and decided to do daily hot yoga at Kata Yoga during our 2 week holiday. We attended the 8am class each morning, and by 9:30am we were leaving class feeling fantastic and life in Phuket was only just starting! Such a great way to start each day on a holiday.

    We were impressed with the well-run studio and high quality of teachers including local teachers and visiting international teachers. Every class was fantastic and catered for all levels from beginner to experienced. Bikram is intense, but the classes in the Kata studio were somehow soothing. Can't imagine going back to yogo in Sydney without a fresh coconut and beach swim after each class!

    Loved it, we will be back next year for another beach and yoga holiday!

    If you have never done hot yoga this is a great place to begin. Whilst on holiday start something that you can continue when you get home because there are yoga studios in many cities teaching the same poses. The staff are friendly as well. Try it.

    Nice to get back to our usual yoga style, after trying out many forms across SE Asia. Back in Australia, on the Gold Coast, our instructors speak more slowly and explain a lot of the physiological benefits of postures during class, with emphasis on correct form, and reminding beginners to stay in the first parts of poses until they feel confident. If you want to know more about the philosophy and physical benefits Bikram has a book which explains it in plain english. The heat is intense, so hydrate with a few litres during the day before class, and after. Too much water during class and you'll feel sick. Nice cold shower afterwards really wakes you up. Nice premises, great to have yoga mat and towels provided. Position is really convenient, late class, shower and stroll to dinner. This style of yoga , with the heat ,works to heal you quickly and can change your life. Dont be afraid to sit quietly during a second set if you feel you need it. Be kind to yourself and give it a try.

    I recommend people of all ages to come to this place if you are staying/holiday in Phuket. I am 41 year old male office worker that has played various sports (soccer, running, rugby, surfing and swimming). I have always kept away from yoga as I always thought they were weird doing these awkward postures. I decided to come and check it out as I was feeling pretty tight in the upper body and thought it might help my flexibility. I was pretty nervous first class as never done yoga before but the studio owner, Govert was very encouraging and just said take it easy and same with the instructor. I have several past injuries and have found this type of yoga beneficial, the positions aren't too demanding, you just go as far as you can. You learn to breathe through your nose, this also helps to reduce your stress. I ended up doing 10 sessions at the studio and found my joints getting stronger, have improved my strength and flexibility. The class goes for 90 minutes. It seems long. I thought there was no way I was doing 90 minutes, but it goes fast. Definitely worth a visit for a few sessions or more.

    We tried Kata hot yoga on our trip to Thailand. We loved it, it was very difficult to begin with but after a while it became so much easier. We really did feel a difference in our energy throughout the day and also helped with joint pain. Overall, the experience was amazing. The staff at Kata Hot Yoga are so welcoming and very helpful. We plan on going back to Kata Hot yoga on our next trip to Phuket, hopefully soon.

    I was first introduced to Bikram yoga at Kata Hot Yoga just before New Year 2011. It was my first experience with any type of yoga and my reason for visiting Kata Hot Yoga was definitely yoga for weight loss. Simply put: I was extremely fat! My first day was very hard, of course. Govert (the owner and primary teacher) was very supportive and told me to just keep coming to class even if I was sore the next day. I definitely succeeded in losing weight with Hot yoga! When I look in the mirror I see a different person than when I first walked into the Kata Hot Yoga studio. And that gives me a lot more self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-respect.I'd like to thank the many Kata Hot Yoga teachers (all Bikram certified Hot yoga instructors)! The Kata Hot Yoga family definitely deserves kudos for motivating me to do the best I can with the body I have: each and every day. I can definitely recommend Kata Hot Yoga to anyone willing to try to change the way they think about regular exercise and a healthier lifestyle. Kata Hot Yoga changed my life for the better. Try a class at Kata Hot Yoga and decide for yourself! Don't let misconceptions of what yoga "is" stop you from taking the chance to see for yourself. It's your body; it's your life.

    Wow!!!! What an experience Kata Hot Yoga is! I discovered Bikram in February this year. I am 48 years old, have had 7 children and been devoted to exercise my whole life. Running, swimming, bike riding - you name it! Keeping my body in shape has always been my priority and I have never gotten as good results before I started Bikram!I practice in Melbourne, Australia in the Mornington Peninsular studio run by Jacqui Greenwood. She is an inspiring and talented teacher. When I told her I was traveling to Phuket she mentioned she had trained with Govert. Can you imagine my happiness when on the first day of my holiday I found the studio - right to next to my hotel - I couldn't believe it.Govert's studio is beautiful. Clean, bright and filled with enthusiastic people practicing each day! Govert is a LEGEND INSTRUCTOR! Whatever Bikram did in that training intake he certainly produced some talented teachers. Govert is precise in his instruction and you feel like you are having personal instruction even though there could be 50 people in the studio. His teaching style is energetic, humorous, and motivating.I left Kata Beach determined to book my next holiday - or as I have renamed Kata Beach - the perfect yoga retreat! Bikram every day, beach and great food the rest of the time - oh and don't forget the fresh coconuts after every class. An icy cold coconut - top chopped off just for you! Put this studio on your must do list. A treat not to be missed.
