Our Staff

Paul - Owner of BeHot Yoga Toronto

PAUL MCQUILLAN

(OWNER/DIRECTOR)

Paul may tend to get a little philosophical in class, but that’s just his way of creating room for you to accommodate your own healing through the use of helpful anecdotes, mantras and self-relatable stories.


But no worries, each serious offering will likely be followed by a dose of humour…and then another. The use of levity in and out of class is an integral part of his teaching methods. What he wants most is for you to enjoy your healing journey.


If you have any questions, concerns, feedback or positive energy to share, don’t hesitate to reach out to the owner of BeHot Yoga. Your wellbeing is his primary goal.
Be sure to check out his bestselling book, "I Hate Yoga." Grab a copy at the studio, a Chapters bookstore or on Amazon.

Emilie simply lights up a room with her unfiltered passion for life and all things yoga. As the newest member of our management team, her humility and willingness to learn all about the workings of the studio and the wonderful yogis who occupy it, has been a joy for all to witness.

Don’t be surprised to hear Emilie’s welcoming voice on the other end of the phone if you’ve just joined the studio. She calls to ask everyone how their experience has been with us. (Psst…she’s a wonderful singer as well, but if you ask her to belt out a few bars of a diddy from her favourite musicals, that’s gonna cost ya)

For any questions regarding your introductory package and the options available to you moving forward, you can call the studio or talk to Emilie in person while you’re enjoying your time with us.
