Gay has been practicing Bikram Yoga since 2013. A regular practitioner of Iyenga, Ashtanga and other Hatha yoga's' for 8 years, Gay was no stranger to yoga - or so she thought! "I remember in my first Bikram class trying every trick in the book to cope; I felt like I'd been hit by a truck, I'd never experienced anything like it". However after about two months of practice, she realised something amazing was happening, her energy levels were higher she had no more pain from arthritis and she had new found flexibility & true concentration never before gained from her past yoga experiences. Gay found such a passion for Bikram Yoga that she has completed several personal challenges including doubles challenges -'two classes a day, every day for a month'. What was amazing to Gay during the challenges was that Bikram yoga created so much energy that on some days she even did three classes a day. In 2017 the studio owners discovered another incredible discipline -' Inferno Hot Pilates'. Gay jumped at the chance to try it and she was hooked, she immediately became an Inferno Hot Pilates teacher. "Inferno is an incredibly beneficial practice in its own right, but it's also the perfect complement to Bikram Yoga; practicing both really does build strength to create flexibility. Gay's classes are strong, motivating and fun. " I'm incredibly excited about the combined health benefits of Bikram Yoga and Inferno Hot Pilates and I truly believe that everyone who practices Bikram and Inferno will feel better than they’ve ever felt in their life".
