My first taste of Bikram Yoga was at a time (1997) when my exercise routine consisted of weight lifting at the gym and a basic Hatha yoga class.
I had been training at the gym for ten years (including sessions with a personal trainer for the last year). I was looking for a more challenging form of yoga so I tried several different styles – as I discovered, there was nothing to compare to Bikram’s Yoga! I was lucky enough to begin my practice at the first Bikram’s Yoga school in Australia and followed the locations, growth and progress from there. Before long I was off to LA to train with Bikram and finished teacher training in April 1999.
While overseas, I taught in California, London, Thailand and back to LA, where I had the amazing & challenging experience of teaching Bikram, his wife Raj and their two children in a regular class, can you believe it???
Returning to Australia I studied yoga philosophy with Sri Rama Acharya and also began studying for a diploma of Shiatsu (including the practice of Ki yoga) to compliment my career as a remedial massage therapist.
Since then I have travelled and taught in Hawaii, USA and London further enhancing my teaching experience. In 2004 I completed yoga teacher training in Pune, India with Dharmavirsingh adding a different perspective to Bikram’s training.
As a teacher, I feel honoured and privileged to share my passion and knowledge with you, as it is your dedication and growth that inspires me to further mine.
With optimism and excitement, I look forward to continuing the journey of growth together on the yoga path.
