YIN YOGA - 75 min


This class is taught by:

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.

"Teach what is inside you, not as it applies to you, but as it applies to the other." T. Krishnamacharya

Katie Standring

Studio owner Katie has been teaching Bikram Yoga since 2005, the longest serving teacher at the studio.
 
In a previous life Katie spend 20 years working as a Sales and Marketing professional in London.
 
When she first came to Bikram Yoga the hardest challenge was to simply lay still! Despite feeling uncomfortable both physically and mentally during her first few classes something kept her going back for more. She soon started to feel more connected with her true self and her life purpose.  Losing weight and becoming more flexible was a welcomed extra! After just one year of regular bikram practice she knew she wanted to teach!

Katie has been fortunate enough to have taught in some of the biggest studios in London, California and Sydney.

In 2007 Katie met Martin. Together they shared a dream to create a Bikram Yoga Studio which was full of love and to inspire people to improve their health and happiness. In 2012 Bikram Yoga Northern Beaches was opened. 

Katie loves 'holding space' for deep healing and transformation. In addition to teaching Bikram yoga, managing the studio  (with Martin) Katie teaches Yin Yoga and runs Yoga Retreats in Bali.

“Whatever your age, injury or prior yoga experience (if any at all), this yoga will benefit your mind and body in ways you never imagined possible”. Katie

Known for her compassion and gentle teaching style, she also has has a no-nonsense approach to life and believes that anything is possible with passion, clear intention and love.  

Katie has an amazing ability to connect with students whilst encouraging them to keep on sweating and smiling!

Yin yoga class is a family class kids (6 & over) welcome! this is a restorative yoga class that will nurture your body and mind in ways you never imagined possible! practiced at room temperature, yin yoga will challenge you in a completely different way to bikram and inferno!

poses are held 3-5 minutes, to give plenty of time to melt through the surface layers of resistance into a naturally relaxed and peaceful state of stillness within. great for inflexible people and busy minds! finding stillness by holding the postures for longer.
