My friend and I spontaneously decided to try a Bikram Yoga class in early 2010. Neither of us really knew anything about Bikram yoga apart from the fact that it would be hot, but I didn’t think it would be too hot for me to handle! I was wrong! I remember feeling dizzy, nauseous, stiff, uncomfortable, self conscious and a little bit silly as I was dressed in long sweat pants and an oversized t-shirt! The class was torturous and as much as I huffed and puffed and struggled wobbling on one leg, I was determined to try every posture and not give up too easily. After that class, I remember walking out of the studio feeling confused, as much as I didn’t love the whole 90 minute experience at all, my body was buzzing, my mind was clear, I felt relaxed and something made me want to go back and try it again!!

I started to practice a few times a week and then after several months I decided to sign up for a 60 day challenge! This allowed me to step outside my comfort zone and gain a deeper understanding of the practice, improve my postures and appreciate the benefits of the Yoga when practiced daily. Bikram Yoga has had a wonderful impact on my life, not only does the yoga help me look and feel physically stronger, mentally I feel happier, more focused, balanced, determined, confident and above all it has helped me to manage a long struggle with anxiety and panic attacks.

It didn’t take me long to realise that I wanted to become a Bikram Yoga Teacher, I wanted to share this amazing yoga and help others live a better life and reach their full potential. I took the plunge and attended Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in Los Angeles! One of the hardest and most rewarding experiences of my life! I graduated in Spring 2013. Never in my dreams did I believe that I could stand up in front of a classroom of students and teach a 90 minute class! Now I believe that anything is possible and I’m so excited to be starting my new journey as a teacher!

I love the fact that each time I practice a Bikram Yoga class it never gets easier, I always feel challenged in the hot room! See you in class soon! Cat.
