BIKRAM YOGA - 90 min


This class is taught by:

Heather King

Heather has been a nurse for 20+ years, working in a variety of fields ( oncology, palliative care, rheumatology and research to name a few) and as a result is passionate about promoting holistic health and wellbeing to everybody.

Her own battle with breast cancer prompted her to follow her dreams and move to Australia in 2003.
Heather admits to being a heat junkie but had never heard of Bikram yoga before trying her 1st class in 2005 - her practise was sporadic initially until participating in her 1st 30 day challenge. Then she became hooked!!

Reasonably fit, she was well aware of the changes to her body with regular practice - but the changes to her psychological health continue to amaze her! 

Heather decided to go to Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in 2014 and she truly believes Bikram yoga makes us bullet proof.
Heather says "forget what you can't do- it's what you CAN do that counts!"

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.

Martin Standring

Studio owner, Martin aka 'the Boss' certified in 2007 and is an inspirational and popular teacher. With over 3000 classes Martin has taught in some of the busiest studios in both England and Australia.

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!
