My first Bikram class was a revelation - 90 minutes that worked my whole body, made me sweat and gave me an hour & a half to think of nothing - bliss. I had always dipped in & out of various styles of yoga though none of them hit the spot. In my 30s I was plagued with ill health following an emergency caesarean - headaches, back ache and sciatica. After only a few months of continuous practice the sciatica pain seemed to just melt away. It was during the nine week teacher training in Vegas that I fully realised just how much knowledge, experience, time and energy Bikram had put into developing the 26 posture series and why I no longer suffer the headaches or back pain - Thank you Bikram!
