Yoga to me has been a life-saver, making life a lot more balanced. My neck, which was damaged in a car accident, became pain-free. My shoulders are now more often than not my shoulders, not earrings. I have learnt to focus and be satisfied with what I can give on a class-by-class basis, and, more importantly, on a day-by-day basis. Just as long as I'm doing my best. I have extremely high standards and always try my best in all walks of my life. I will go the extra mile if that's what is needed. I truly believe that all ages can and should practice yoga, especially those from eight to nine years up. Life for young people is quite fast these days and more than anything they need to be in touch with their inner selves and know their limitations. My ultimate goal, coupled with my natural ability to read the body and quickly assess misalignments and potential weaknesses, is to train some yoga champions of the future, especially if Bikram's wish comes true and yoga becomes an Olympic sport.

My first Bikram yoga class was in April 2006. I loved it. My very first class was tough- the challenge, the heat, the discipline, the energy and the 26 postures. I knew I had found something very special. I also knew that one day I would to teach Bikram Yoga. That day is now here. Bikram Yoga is amazing both physically and mentally – the lower back pain that I had suffered for several years has disappeared, my stress levels have eased and I generally feel so much healthier. The most amazing benefit I find from Bikram Yoga, is that no matter what type of class you have, or how you were feeling to begin with, you always feel good after you have worked hard for 90 minutes, through 26 postures and two breathing exercises. I briefly tried other styles of hatha yoga when there was no Bikram studio in Brighton and although I enjoyed it, I realised how many more benefits there are from Bikram Yoga. As soon as CJ’s studio opened, I was straight through the door for the very first class! When the time was right for me, I made the life changing decision to go to Bikram Yoga Teacher Training. I left my career and job as the Area Manager for Sussex within a public sector department to fulfil my dreams of becoming a Bikram Yoga Teacher. This was a huge decision, but definitely the best decision I have ever made. I am honoured to be able to teach Bikram Yoga to you all especially as I know how it will help others get the benefits from this amazing yoga practice. Improving you back pain, joint issues and a whole plethora of body issues.
BIKRAM YOGA IS PRACTICED IN A HOT ROOM in temperatures of around 42-45 degrees centigrade. So straight away your body is warm and ready for action. As you work through the 26 postures or (asanas) and two breathing exercises, your body's internal and external temperatures start to even out. Your body is now becoming more fluid and open. This allows your muscles to stretch more readily and your joints to move more easily. So no matter what condition your body is in, you can gain a lot of benefit from just one class.

As you get hot you will sweat, a great way to start removing toxins such as nicotine, caffeine and even excess alcohol—not to mention dangerous metabolic waste that can build up, causing all sorts of physical and mental issues.
