“Bikram Yoga is the only ‘exercise / activity’ I have ever stuck with. I’ve been coming for 9 years and I can’t ever imagine stopping. Through break-ups, children, retrenchments and injuries Bikram has been a constant. “ Kerry, 43

Bikram yoga has improved both Nick and I so much in mind, body and spirit – so much more than we could have wished for and we have you all to thank for your continued support, whip-cracking encouragement, kind souls and words of wisdom.
I have quietly been suffering from back pain since an accident when I was 18 and this winter for the first time sinc (…)
Since I started 9 weeks ago I have lost 4.5kgs and gained 2kgs of muscle. My blood pressure has decreased. My flexibility and my strength have both improved. I’m sleeping better, my anxiety levels have decreased and I feel that my mental clarity has improved.
I’m not sure there are many forms of exercise that would offer all of the benefits that I (…)
I initially started practicing Bikram Yoga to calm my mind away from the stress and struggles I experienced in my final years of high school. Like most of us, young or old, we build things up and keep them trapped inside of us and this is where Bikram is my saviour, where I find my release, inner peace and strength.
I’m now nearly 20 and the benefits (…)
I’ve been coming to Bikram Yoga for around 10 years. My visits used to be pretty sporadic – mostly when I was trying to escape winter! But over the past few years I’ve realised Bikram Yoga is an all year round tool for increasing flexibility, reducing or preventing injury, increasing performance, improved mental strength, heat acclimatisation for speci (…)
” In January 2012 I had 3 weeks of intense surfing (and lifting my one year old princess) while on holidays in Bali. When I got back to Sydney I was driving for at least 3 hours a day commuting to work. My back was absolutely killing me.
I felt I needed to be back at Bikram Brookvale practicing more regularly. That’s when I went for a class at the stu (…)
My name is Anna & I have been coming to Bikram’s @ Brookvale since 2009.
I had practised yoga before but nothing like ‘hot’ yoga. I was so wiped out after my 1st class I couldn’t imagine coming back ever again but of course I did because at the same time I felt so incredible. My mind soon got over the smell, the sweat and (to be honest) the fear. (…)
I’m so excited to share my recovery from a major shoulder break at age 47. My shoulder doctor and physiotherapist have described my recovery in such a short period as “amazing”! This was an injury I wasn’t expected to recover from for around 8 months.
In early April 2017 I returned to Bikram Yoga Brookvale after 10 years living in Singapore and USA, (…)
My parents had been doing Bikram yoga for yonks and I never thought twice about going with them (lame!). They always talked about it around the dinner table, cracking in-jokes about their class and the teachers. Once I finished high school, turned 19 and matured a little, I swallowed my pride and went along to a class with mum. Four years later and I’v (…)
I’ve tried swimming, running, the gym and a number of different yogas. They’ve all left me feeling uninspired and it was a real effort to keep them up. Bikram is the opposite. The more I do it the more I want to do it. The mental and physical benefits are amazing. If I’m going to exercise I want to feel it and I want to see results. With Bikram yoga you do!
After 18 years of Rugby at senior level here in Sydney and more than 300 games of grade footy, I suppose it was always going to be a matter of when and not if the old bones were going to jam up.
Too many scrums (I played in the front row), heavy weights, running on roads on cold and wet nights as well as a cocktail of injuries to my lower back, knees (…)
Live Each Second, Love Each Day
I joined Bikram Australia at the beginning of 2014, shortly after being diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder Type 2.
The benefits have been great!
Bikram has given me a whole new lifestyle, and taught me mind control, patience, gratitude, perspective and keeping things simple. It has provided me with a balance in life, su (…)
When I first set foot in the Bikram studio almost two years ago I was a different person. I was depressed and underweight. I lacked self-confidence and was weak both mentally and physically.
I suffered with chronic pain in my shoulder due to a whiplash injury and the pain made me miserable. Furthermore, due to over a decade of neglecting my health I h (…)
When did you start doing Bikram?
8 years ago, when I was 17 years old in Byron Bay, Australia.
Why did you first come to class?
I started practising Bikram yoga during my HSC. I was living out of home, working full time and studying most classes distance education to try to juggle it all. I’m extremely high energy and that turned into extreme (…)
In 2015 at the age of 47, I went back to playing outdoor soccer in my old over 35s team after a couple of years away. At the time I’d been practising Bikram for 2-3 years and since then I’d had no self-inflicted bodily injury in my sports – mountain biking, surfing, playing indoor soccer. This had given me an (as it turned out) overly-optimistic sense (…)
” I have been practicing Bikram yoga in Brookvale since 2006. From my very first class I was instantly hooked and there was no going back, I knew that I would be putting myself in that hot room for the rest of my days!
Yes, it is hot, sweaty and challenging but it is also these elements that make it incredibly rewarding. With the inspiring support and (…)
Jodie, I am not usually given to the overuse of superlatives but this time I need them. You have an excellent and dedicated team of teachers, superbly led by your good self. Everyone uses the same dialogue but each one is different too. All are exceptional exponents of the benefits of Bikram Yoga.
I am now 3 months into Bikram Yoga and have a long wa (…)
” My friend suddenly started shrinking and looking good.
But I would not go to Bikram Yoga because I did not like the idea of heat. I am Japanese and I am supposed to love hot springs and sauna. Well, I could not stand either. I was feeling relatively strong after three years of Pilates and other gym classes.
I decided to try Bikram soon after I lost (…)
I have been practicing regularly 4 times a week since 2009. Before I started I was training regularly at the gym 1.5 hours Monday to Friday. During that time, just before I started Bikram I had a broad spectrum blood test done which came back very good.
Recently I have had the same tests done (if anything my diet is a little worse). My results were sp (…)
I love sport…climbing, surfing, cycling and many more. We are told by fitness professionals, government health organisations and science that to be good at sport you need to do High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), namely weights and cardio, so I did it and went at it hard for years. As a result, I ended up with a torn MCL (knee), labral tear in (…)
I first came to yoga in 2011. Within 3 months of practising yoga 4-5 times a week I learnt a lot about myself and saw my body change from fat into muscles!
My way of thinking had also changed. I’m more forgiving and humble and I appreciate the little things more. Bikram Yoga has given me a lot of strength in every area of my life. I have a better rela (…)
