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.
Our inaugural Student of the Month (August 2015)
I selected Senta as our very first Student of the Month because of here determination not to let her physical body hold her back. She has had a double hip replacement and I have seen her in the room day in day out. She has the 'never say die' attitude. She doesn't complain or whine. She just gets in and does the job.
Senta you are a true Yoginio and such a worthy candidate for Student of the Month.
Daz and the Bikram Darlo team
I started practicing Bikram 2008. It was 6 months after my double hip replacement. I couldn't even put my feet together, let alone pick one up off the floor. In my first class I remember Daz saying "the intention of the posture, is the posture" and this is what kept me coming back. The structure of the Bikram practice has allowed me to get specific guidance on how to modify each posture and easily monitor my improvement. After 12 months I was lifting one leg off the ground and coming half way down in Awkward Pose. I was not able to practice while pregnant. So from late 2009, I took 5 years off to have 3 gorgeous girls (Syrah 5, Rose 3 and Hannah 1).I have been back practicing for about a year now. I lost my 30kg of baby weight and not only look to my classes to heal and strengthen my body, but also to strengthen my mind and build my inner peace. A much needed quality with 3 kids under 5!Some days I can now stand a whole 60 seconds, holding my foot and locking my leg. I can get all the way down in Awkward Pose but I’m still working on getting back up! Being surrounded by so many amazing Bikram yogis is an inspiration. Everyone at this studio has encouraged me along the way. While my achievements are small, I am learning to celebrate them. So it’s a huge honour to be chosen for student of the month. And now - I can't wipe the smile off my face. Thank you so much!

So to combat the cold winter days we have added Infrared heat panels to a section of the yoga room.
The panels emit an infra-red wave light that is not visible to the naked eye.
The heat is a infra red light not to be confused with a UV light.
The panels will heat your body rather than convection heating which relies on heating the air.
I have installed the panels only on one side of the room so that those who love the heat can get their "fix", while those that do not can
find refuge in the other parts of the room. The heat panels provide a very localised heating effect.
Come and try them out.
The panels have been specifically made for hot yoga rooms and have been tuned to emit a very soft heat.
These are the latest technology and unlike heat panels of the past that delivered raw heat these are a very specific frequency.
