'I started with Bikram Yoga in my home country, The Netherlands, because my body was in pain (bad back, osteo arthritis, RSI) and also because I was very depressed at that time in my life. I had read about Bikram in magazines and finally came the day they opened up a studio in my hometown! I went and I HATED the first class. Too hot, didn't like the teacher, too long, too painful,
etc etc etc. BUT, the next day? Man I felt awesome! I could actually move my wrist, my spine, my hands and for the first time in a long while my mind felt at ease. So I went back. And never
stopped! You could say Bikram has saved my life. I already wanted to go to Bikram Teacher Training when we were still in The Netherlands but thought I'd better wait and save some more
money for our big move Down Under. Brisbane had only 1 studio when we moved there 5 years ago (it now has 4) and without even realising we found a house just around the corner of that
studio! Within a few months I went to Teacher Training, travelled around a lot as a teacher and then thought to myself: how come every major city in Australia has at least 4 Bikram Studios but
there is NONE in Canberra? So we made another big decision and picked up our bags to move to Australia's Capital. And here we are! Canberra's one and only fully authorized Bikram Yoga Studio!'
