Student of the Month
Because we have so many great students here we have decided to start a student of the month award.
Each month we will be selecting a student to be acknowledged for their practice.
Each student will be selected taking into account the issues they have faced to continue to practice.
Some physical, others emotional, some just from the sheer consistency and time of practice. You can be assured
that each honoured are true yogis and yoginis.
As student of the month they will get free access to posture clinic, a month worth of towel
hire and drinks at teacher discounted rate, free mat hire.
Brad has been practising at Darlinghurst for 8 years. His practice in this time has been consistent throughout.
So much so he was the first male we have ever invited to participate with the teachers in the
Advance Bikram Yoga Class. I have watched him grow from strength to strength.
In the advanced class he now surpasses me in the depth of some postures which above all
demonstrates the ability to work hard. Let's face it...Brad is no spring chicken but I see him doing
things men 30 years his junior would have difficulty with. Brad is very easy going and demonstrates
all that we require to be the February Student of the Month.
Good on your Brad.
Your first class?
Darlo, Jan 2008. I tagged along with my then girlfriend (now beautiful wife!).
Darren was teaching, and, as I recall, I got his "I'm definitely humiliating you, and you know it, but perhaps
I could also encouraging you?(but probably not)" routine we all enjoy (when it's aimed at someone else).
Why did you go?
I was hoping the practice would help speed the recovery of some recent back surgery (it did).
How often do you practice now?
These days I'm 6 classes per week, most weeks
Why do you go?
1. Initially, it had a lot to do with the fact that it seemed to be ok to produce that much
sweat, yet not be told to please not come back.
2. Later, (naively) my goal was to reach the stage when I would never again feel in a
class like I was an inch away from turning into a human fireball (still waiting on that).
3. Now, partly because my body hurts way too much if I don't do the practice (solving the dilemma of unattainable goal 2),
but most of all because I suck at golf
What have you learnt from the practice?
1. Before you let the Bikram addiction to really take a hold, make sure your partner is the
tolerant, self sufficient, forgiving type (thanks, lovely wifey!)
2. It's actually possible to get really, really excited about ice water
