Open Day free hot yoga


This class is taught by:

Carolyn Jikiemi-Roberts

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.

I went to my first Bikram yoga class in April 2006. I loved it from my very first class - the heat, the energy, the 26 postures as well as the time to de-stress, re-energise and switch off.
I completed my Bikram teacher training, a 9 intensive week course, in September 2011.

I then decided to expand my knowledge and learn how to teach other styles of yoga.

In November 2014 I completed aerial yoga training.

In June 2016 I attended Ghosh Vinyasa Flow training - a Bikram vinyasa fusion.

In May 2017 I completed my 200 hours training, specialising in vinyasa flow.

In September 2017 I completed my Yin yoga training.

Yoga is amazing both physically and mentally. In particular, no matter what type of class you have, no matter what sort of day you have had, you always feel good afterwards.

I am truly grateful and honoured to be able to teach all these different styles of yoga and help others get the benefits from their practice, build strength and flexibility and change their lives for the better.

I discovered Bikram Yoga whilst on holiday in Colorado in 2007 with my husband Keith and 3 children. On my return I was sad to discover that the nearest place to practice was either in London or Brighton. At that time we lived in Guildford. Since I felt that Bikram Yoga needed to be part of my life, I made it my goal to move us all to Brighton to live by the sea and to have Bikram Yoga in our lives permanently. We eventually moved to Brighton in Sept 2009 and I signed up straight away at Bikram Yoga Brighton. Beginning a regular practice at 49 I discovered that I was fairly stiff and lopsided, but I loved the focus, discipline and the energy and soon became addicted. My next challenge I felt had to be Teacher training. I knew that I had to become a teacher and spread the good news of Bikram Yoga. So after battling with my stiffness by doing many 30 day challenges and dedicating as much time as I could to practicing Bikram Yoga to improve not just my body, but also my view of me, I finally went to Teacher Training. Finally in LA with The Boss, Bikram Choudhury - WOW! I was convinced I would be the oldest, fattest and stiffest and the list goes on. To my surprise I found Teacher Training filled with 400 people from 26 countries of all ages, shapes, colours and languages. What an experience I had in those nine weeks. I would like to share what I learned from Bikram every time I teach you in class, so what are you waiting for. Bikram yoga is a gas station filling you up with everything you need. Bikram says it is the only exercise to give you energy, coming to class is like going to the gas station to fill up on petrol. You truly do re-energize in class. Bikram also says “Never too late, never too old, never too sick to do this yoga and start from scratch again”.

Ricardo Wehr

Originally from Portugal (Algarve) Ricardo has been living in Brighton for 12 years now. He discovered Bikram yoga 4 years ago and didn't realise the impact it was going to have on his life . As a Cable Engineer for over 7 years, this was physically challenging and very demanding on his life. Finding Bikram yoga was a way to de-stress and re-energise.

Through practising regularly, he soon found all the spiritual and physical benefits that came with it.

He quickly discovered that he wanted to make yoga his life choice and decided to embark on becoming a teacher. Believe it or not this was not a easy transition due to his high levels of anxiety which are now hardly recognizable. He graduated in Spring 2010 and never looked back. He is really happy to be doing something that really changes and inspires people's lives.

My best Bikram moment was completing Teacher Training in June 2010 and then becoming UK Yoga Asana Silver Champion in 2011 and 2012 and then competing In the International Yoga Cup.

My Favorite postures is triangle and spine twist.
My most challenging posture is Head to knee.

Coming to Bikram Yoga turned on an internal switch which has changed the way I live, the only problem now is that I cannot turn if off…

Come sweat it out in the Hot Room

If you can you must, if cannot you must try. I look forward to see you in class.
