TEACHERS

 

We are particularly proud of our team of teachers. All our Bikram teachers have undergone an extensive 9-week training program with the man himself, Bikram Choudhury. Our teachers are there for you. Their knowledge, experience and passion will guide you, inspire you and challenge you.

 

My story of this yoga began in 2005 when I was referred to it by a good friend of mine. My first class was a torture.. It was so hot and I LOVED IT! The minute the class began with the first breathing, I immediately felt I was ‘home’. I struggled to breathe properly and almost fainted during the class as I was very determined to keep up with everyone else especially the amazing front row practitioners! Even though I couldn’t do ¾ of the class, I felt amazing afterwards and kept going back for more torture. Each time I went into the hot room, I was able to just let go and enjoy the learning in class. I didn’t know what learning I was getting at first, but after a few more sessions I realise what it was – learning to breathe and listen to my body, and to enjoy my yoga journey. ‘It’s never about the destination but always about the journey’.
I am passionate about this yoga. When anyone asks me, I won’t lie I will tell you it’s hard, it’s hot, and I love it. I love the healing benefits of every posture. I love that this is 90 minutes and it is 26 postures, and that it is the same, every, single, time. I love that only YOU can change your body, you do all the hard work to benefit. Only by repetition does your body improve and start healing. Anything you learn in life, you learn and practice again and again and again, you get better, you don’t get worse. I love how this yoga changed my life; I was a corporate accountant for 8 years before giving it up and to committing myself fully into teaching and spreading the wonderful benefits of this healing yoga.
During my 8 years as a teacher and studio owner, I have seen so many positive changes to students and practitioners all over the world. Bikram Yoga is not about being the fittest or the most flexible in the room. Bikram Yoga teaches you something else, something similar to life... It is never easy, always hard… the struggle in the hot room. In fact, the biggest challenge in coming to the hot room is not the heat; it is setting the intention to come to class and following through with it. By keeping a daily practice, I have also discovered the secret of Bikram Yoga; I wake up every day feeling so energized and ready for anything that comes my way!
My studio in Werribee opened in November 2009 and Yarraville in 2012. We have met many students who have benefitted from the yoga i.e depression, weight loss, arthritis, rheumatism, bad knee/ankle/hip, you name it we have seen it all! It does not matter who you are, what matters most is you practise yoga with an open heart, and an open mind. No judgement. Have compassion for yourself. My instructors and I are here to help you in your yoga journey. We hope to welcome you to our hot room soon. Namaste.
