Throughout her travels in South East Asia, Central and South America, Candace practised her yoga regularly, was always on the lookout for the next great hike and enjoyed trying new things like surfing. Since basing herself in Sydney's Northern Beaches in 2015, Candace discovered Bikram Yoga and a love of the hot room and it's detoxifying effects. Candace has felt a complete mental shift based on the meditation that comes with Bikram Yoga, and then Inferno Hot Pilates was introduced to the studio! Candace has is noticed how much stronger she felt with each class attended and could see long, lean muscle mass develop quickly.
More than anything, she loved the feeling of coming into class and exceeding her own expectations every time!
Candace believes that when we invest in ourself, we are better equipped to make a positive impact on the world around us.
Naturally, when the opportunity presented itself to become an Inferno Hot Pilates Instructor, she jumped at the chance! Her true passion for the Inferno comes through as she empowers students to do their best and have fun!
Candace say "When you walk out of the hot room you will have an extra spring in your step!"
Before discovering Bikram Yoga Martin spent 14 years as a Fire Fighter. He was also a keen sportsman and was a self-confessed gym junkie! Due to the intense sports activities over a number of years Martin suffered serious knee injuries, which lead to arthritis in his knees and ongoing problems with his back and hips until one day is he was persuaded to try a Bikram class.
Back in those days Martin had very little flexibility and was unable to do many of the postures, which frustrated him, but he loved the complete body work out. He says that it was one of the hardest, most challenging things he had ever done in his life! After 5 weeks of regular practice he noticed his knees were pain free and the discomfort in his back and hips had eased. More than that something was happening internally. Through a regular Bikram practice he is a much calmer, happier person.
Martin and his wife Katie met in the hot room and work as a great team.
Martin is one of the most popular teachers and its easy to see why. He teachers with humour and lightness whilst giving students an authentic 'dialogue' class every time.
Martin also managers the yoga studio and he is available for students and teaches 7 days a week.
Take Martin's class and be prepared to you laugh out loud, sweat and cry!
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
