Tak Sasaki

Tak has been involved in fitness for over 15+years. His own passion to develop his body through strength and conditioning started at a young age of 14 at the local community gym. He took on his first role as a coach in high school, monitoring the high school weight room during lunch where he discovered his passion in helping others. He continues to learn new techniques to evolve the human body to this day. His pursuit to learn about the development of the body brought him to seek different ways to challenge not only the physical but the mental as well. A stay in Japan had a big influence in his training and outlook where he studied meditation, and spiritual centering through the breathe.

During the middle of his coaching/training career, he started to discover the martial arts. Thru the help of Jason Fenton (Iron City Muay Thai) Thailand was the next big trip, to train Muay Thai, at 13Coins Resort one of the top Thai boxing gyms during that time. Through his pursuit with the martial arts, he became more intrigued with the physical conditioning of Mixed Martial Artists and started his own adventure into the culture/training of these amazing athletes. He began to compete in tournaments, the ring and the cage. Which led him to train with some of the top MMA professional athletes in Canada at Tristar Gym. His experience as a Mixed Martial Artists has given him insight to his own mental blocks and to surpass the boundaries of mental limitations on the body.
Tak continual challenges himself on a physical, mental and spiritual plane, to be a true warrior to himself. To apply this in his coaching and training with his clients. He is still currently competing as a MMA Athlete. He is always looking forward to a new challenge where ever life may take him. Looking to make a healthy difference in peoples lives.

Michael Olivotto

When I first started yoga, I could barely turn my neck, as a combination of work and several accidents had broken my body. As my body began to release the built up tension, I became intrigued by the philosophical and spiritual message of yoga.
While working in remote parts of British Columbia, I began to practice on my own. In this isolated setting, I would practice to the music that called to me: hard rock and melodic metal. I discovered that the music brought me far deeper into myself than I had ever believed possible.By teaching a powerful yoga style to such contemporary music, I hope to awaken a spiritual and physical balance in people who might otherwise dismiss yoga or who might find it unapproachable. Also, I hope to foster an environment that is both approachable and invigorating.
