In 2007 Mariki immigrated to Australia via Roma in the Queensland outback where she worked as a clinical psychologist for 2 years in the rural areas. As there were no Bikram Studios for hundreds of kilometres, Mariki practiced Bikram Yoga on her own with Bikram's CD in a little heated room with a big mirror, joined by her cat, Bagheera. This prepared her for Bikram teacher training in 2009.
Mariki taught her first class in Brisbane, and soon after moved to Sydney where she has been teaching at several studios for the past 5 years. Absolutely loving it, her passion and belief in Bikram yoga is ever growing. Mariki teaches a joyful yet disciplined class and focuses awareness towards transcending limitations and pushing the edge.
