Alle vores Bikram Yoga undervisere er certificerede Bikram Yoga instruktører. De har alle gennemført Bikram Teacher Training ved Bikram Choudhury, som er stifter at Bikram yoga. Selvom stillingerne altid er de samme i en Bikram Yoga klasse, så sætter vores undervisere, hver især, deres eget specielle særpræg på netop deres undervisning. Det kan anbefales at prøve, at blive undervist af forskellige undervisere, for at opleve og lære af deres forskellige tilgang og fokus på Bikram Yoga praksissen.
Vores undervisere i Yin Yoga og Inferno Hot Pilates underviser også i Bikram Yoga, og koncentrerer sig meget om, at tilrettelægge undervisningen så den supplerer din Bikram Yoga praksis. Vores undervisere i Core og Movement dyrker også selv Bikram Yoga, og er meget bevidste om vigtigheden af, at træne sin krop på forskellige måder, for at opnå et optimalt udbytte af sin træning.

Manilla Felipe, Bikram Yoga
Manilla tog sin første Bikram Yoga klasse i august 2012 hos Bikram Yoga Copenhagen. Hun var ikke hooked efter første klasse, som så mange andre. Hun følte sig slået hjem, og var irriteret på Bikram Yoga instruktøren, der blev ved med at råbe: “Lock the knee. Don’t loose the grip” samtidig med, at han talte konstant i 90 min. Det var ikke yoga, som jeg var vant til med en yogalærer uddannelse, og med mere end 15 års yoga praksis i baggagen. Alligevel vækkede de 90 min en stor nysgerrighed inden i mig, og den næste dag var jeg tilbage i det varme rum. Bikram Yoga har været i mit liv lige siden, og har ændret mit liv totalt.
I foråret 2017 tog jeg skridtet videre, og valgte at tilbringe 9 intense uger med Bikram himself på Bikram Yoga Teacher training i Acapulco.
Jeg har udforsket mange forskellige yogaformer, men aldrig stødt på nogen former for yoga, som kan det som Bikram Yoga kan.

One of her first new experiences was the practice of Bikram Yoga and she instantly felt that this was something life receiving for her mind and body.

Bikram Yoga gives her a doorway to disappear from her everyday life for 90 minutes to re-energize and revitalize.

Louise Grøhn Matthiesen
Louise er 24 år og er i gang med at læse antropologi og tage en danseuddannelse. Louise dyrker Bikram Yoga fordi hun er fascineret af, hvordan yogaserien er den samme hver gang, og samtidig kan den erfares på nye måder, jo mere man praktiserer. Louise synes, at Bikram yoga er fedt, fordi det kræver tillid og tilstedeværelse på yogamåtten, som man med glæde kan tage med sig ud i verden.
Silvana begyndte sit Bikram eventyr med en “30 day challenge” i vores studie, i foråret 2017 og mærkede hurtigt den dybe effekt ved, at dyrke Bikram Yoga regelmæssigt. Hun kalder Bikram Yoga hendes “inner gym” og bruger de 90 minutter i det opvarmede rum til at kigge indad og skabe et stærkt fundament for personlig udvikling og glæde i hendes hverdag.
