When I first met Bikram yoga, I was a full time stay at home mum…having 3 children under age of 4 is a lot of work…a lot of noise in the house, dealing with toddlers tantrums, chasing after them, it’s non stop, 24 hours a day.Frankly I needed time out from everything.Just a little bit of peace for myself.
So I opened the door to find at Bikram yoga Geelong in 2009…well I couldn’t find peace in the class at all, I struggled for the whole 90 mins, kept thinking whats wrong with these people? How can people enjoy this torture?? But after the class, doing the last savasana, I found the most peaceful moment for the first time in a long time.
So I kept going back to the hot room, 3 times a week, 5 times a week…
People asked me, ” you are here everyday, when are you going to a teacher training?? I used to say “oh kids are still too little…maybe one day…” Then it was my husband to push my back, ‘it’s time for you to do something for yourself, I will be Mr Mum for 9 weeks” I never forget what he said to me.
I attended teacher training in 2011, and I have been teaching since then. I love my job, love watching students to grow from inside out, physically and mentally.
I believe that practicing bikram yoga makes me a better person, better mum and better wife.
