FOCUS60 - 60 Min


This class is taught by:

Jacqueline Logeman-Jansen

In 2006 Jacqueline began her Yoga Journey in The Hague, The Netherlands, at Bikram Yoga Den Haag, back then only the 2nd Bikram Studio in The Netherlands! At that time Jacqueline was a flight attendant, had a lot of pain in her spine and her wrists, and suffered from a major depression. She did not like her first class at all, but thought to herself: "well, everyone else in the room seems to be able to survive this hot yoga stuff, so that must mean I can too!"

Within 3 Months she noticed a major improvement in her whole well being and she was hooked for life.

She moved with her husband to Australia in 2007 and continued on her Yoga Journey in Brisbane. Always eager to learn, Jacqueline decided to go to Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in 2008. Since graduating from TT she traveled all over the world to teach at some amazing Studios and spread the Yoga Love. She had the chance to meet many inspiring Senior Teachers, Coaches, and some amazing Yogi's!

After 2 years of traveling , in 2010 she decided to open her own Bikram Yoga Studio in Australia's Capital, Canberra. Here she was able to create Canberra's first ever Bikram Yoga Community. Over a period of 4 years she has lovingly created a welcoming Yoga Community in Canberra, always making sure to keep growing herself as well by attending as many workshops and seminars in Australia and around the world as possible.

After 4 years she decided to sell the Studio to focus more on family life. Her home base is now in Sydney on the Northern Beaches. Jacqueline is very excited to be able to help students reach a new level of confidence, to see them grow into the best person they can possibly be: themselves. She teaches a powerful class and likes to pay attention to detail.

Jessica Whatham

Jessica was born and raised on Sydney's Northern Beaches and began practicing Bikram Yoga at 14 years old. Since then she has travelled, lived, and practiced Bikram Yoga in London and the United States.
 
After studying Business and Nutrition Jessica felt that something was still missing and in 2009 Jessica became a certified Bikram Yoga instructor. Jessica began her teaching career in the USA, teaching in studios in Miami and in the North Eastern USA. In 2013 Jessica moved back to Sydney and is very much at home back on the Northern Beaches.

Bikram Yoga is something that has always provided a sound body and mind for Jessica and she loves that as a teacher she can share those same benefits with her students.

Rob Burland

Back in 2009, Rob’s partner Christel tried to persuade him to try out Bikram Yoga. Robs response was: “Yoga - men don’t go to yoga, can’t imagine blokes going to yoga.” After a heated discussion and to keep the peace Rob agreed to give it a go…
 
Rob, a keen surfer and runner at the time had read in a surfing magazine about professional surfers doing yoga and cross training to help them surf better; in fact, they were saying it gave them an edge over other competitors, helping to develop core strength and mental fortitude.  
 
His first class was hard, hot and strenuous on both body and mind. Half way through, he felt like throwing up and doing a runner for the door!  He attempted most postures but could not believe how inflexible he was! He was in awe of the rest of the class, many in there 40s, 50s and 60s, in front of him, nailing every posture in complete stillness, simultaneously maintaining a calm breath. He just knew he had to come back! Rob refused to be defeated so he went back to Bikram again and again and again. Each time, he noticed he was getting stronger, his breathing was getting easier and his mind was saying he could do this.
 
Within a month or two of regular practice, he felt incredible. Feeling energised all the time, sleeping like a baby! He noticed that he felt calmer at work. He was able to concentrate better and felt more relaxed and more confident around colleagues and customers.
 
In 2011, Rob took long service leave to pack his bags and head to the USA for the 9 weeks intensive Bikram Yoga Teacher Training. Becoming a Bikram Yoga teacher was a life changing opportunity.
 
Rob says that it’s been the most rewarding personal development of his life. During Robs classes he will share insights, passion and energy through and offer real inspiration to others.
 
Focus60 is an energising 60 minute class that follows the standard Bikram sequence with a few minor differences. Whilst new Bikram students are welcome, the class is ideally suited to those who have experienced the full 90 minute Bikram program first. As the Focus60 class moves quickly an understanding of the foundation postures of Bikram is an advantage in the shortened timeframe of the Focus60 class.
Focus60 includes all postures in the 90 minute class but provides for students to focus on working deeply as the shortened class time requires less overall energy expenditure.
All classes are conducted in the same heated studio as our normal Bikram classes and run for 60 minutes each.
FOCUS60 classes are covered under your standard membership package.
