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.


Carolyn Jikiemi-Roberts instructs the following:
  • Hot 60
  •  
    This is the same Bikram method class with the 26 postures, but only takes 1 hour. This is a faster paced class and only suitable for those who are familiar with the sequence. This is not advisable for students on their first 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.

  • Hot 90
  • 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.
