Hot Yoga on 20th

Dallas Kruszelnicki - Owner / Director of Teacher Training

DallasDallas is the owner/proprietor of Hot Yoga on 20th. The last fifteen years he has spent traveling the world teaching hot yoga and managing yoga studios. He recently decided to make Saskatoon his home to be closer to his
family, and open Saskatoon’s first hot yoga studio.

Dallas says “I have a compassionate approach to teaching. After breaking many bones skateboarding and snowboarding and falling out of moving vehicles I was a broken person at 26. Yoga reversed the damage I had done to my body and gave me the direction to show others how to do this for themselves. You will be able to see huge benefits from this yoga in as little as a month of steady practice. Try starting out with three or four classes a week and feel the difference it makes to your body, your mind and your life as a whole.”


Dallas has been trained to teach Hatha Yoga by Bikram Choudhury, Emmy Cleaves and Rajashri Choudhury. He has also taken Scaravelli Yoga training courses with Marc Woolford and John Stirk. Dallas has undergone extensive Pranayama training with Acharya Sankkarji, and Ashtanga teacher training with David Swenson.

Teacher Training

Due to popular demand we started our first teacher training in fall 2010. Our next session starts in Summer 2017.

We recommend that students have at least 6 months hot yoga practice. If you have been practicing at another studio we require a letter of recommendation from your yoga teacher.
