Shelley - Instructor, The Yoga Garage, Perth

I started Bikram Yoga in 2007, as a friend was keen to try it and I'm always up for a challenge! Having a stressful job in the finance industry, I was also looking for a way to find balance in my life. I struggled through the first few classes but soon afterwards, I was hooked.

I had never experienced anything like it - the shape of my body changed, I felt happier, and most importantly I discovered the ability to focus and use my breath to calm my mind in any situation. The ability to overcome challenges in the hot room soon overflowed to my life outside of the hot room.

In 2017, I travelled to Florida to complete my 500hr teacher training with the Raja Yoga Academy. It was an unbelievable experience! Every day I am thankful that I have the opportunity to witness people's lives changing for the better, just the way that mine has.

See you in the hot room!
