Ayesha is diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis having developed the condition in her early 20s, whilst studying at university, where she found it a struggle to attend lectures. However, with sheer perseverance she went on to complete her degree with BSc Hons. As the condition deteriorated, Ayesha found herself unable to physically manage on a daily basis.  This forced her to return to the home of her parents in order to receive the necessary care. 

Doctors disclosed that by age thirty she was likely to be in a wheelchair due to this debilitating disease. In a bid to find a cure she tried various medicines, natural remedies and a series of treatment but to no avail.  Eventually, having attended a taster class in Bikram yoga 10 years’ ago the benefits were immediate - she no longer needed a walking stick. There was a noticeable and significant reduction in pain and inflammation in the joints. The more intense the practise, the more beneficial it was to her body.  Motivated, and with renewed confidence, she decided to enter the Bishnu Charan Ghosh Cup yoga competition which was recommended by one of her teachers. With sheer determination and perseverance Ayesha went on to win the title in 2013, becoming UK Yoga Champion. Ayesha is also a Yoga Alliance certified pre and post-natal pregnancy yoga and baby and mother yoga.

Ricardo found that his area of employment was far too physically challenging and time-consuming in his everyday life. Practising yoga after the working day was a way to de-stress and re-energise. Through practising regularly, he quickly realised the meditative and physical benefits. He discovered that he wanted to make yoga his lifestyle choice and decided to embark on becoming a teacher.

Ricardo competed in the Bishnu Charan Ghosh Cup yoga competition in 2011 and 2012 and did extremely well placing 2nd in both competition respectively. He is happy to be doing something that really inspires and changes people's lives.

Bikram Beginners Yoga

Ted's first experience of Bikram Yoga was 2001, attending class in his home town of Ottawa, Canada. A work colleague suggested he try it to help with some emotional difficulties he was experiencing. Thinking Yoga was only for the fit and the flexible, he had his reservations.  Neither fit nor flexible, Ted thought the idea of touching his toes was laughable. Thinking he had nothing to lose but some body fat and dignity, he went along with an open mind. What happened in that first class was unforgettable.  He struggled, fell over, nearly passed out. But afterwards, he wanted more. Ted knew instinctively that it was good for him and practiced on and off for a year, taking class as a tonic, but never really committing to a regular practice.

After moving to the UK, he lost contact with Bikram Yoga and tried many other Yoga methods, but never felt the astounding effect that he'd experienced with the Bikram sequence. Then in 2008 he began practicing Bikram again and in 2014, completed the intensive 500 hour Teacher Training course with Bikram and Rajashree Choudhury in Thailand.

"I love that Bikram’s yoga sequence is accessible to anyone, at any age, at any level of fitness, who wants to make a change in their life. Hidden within consistency and accuracy of attempting Bikram’s sequence of postures on a regular basis, lies the uncapped potential for a healthy mind, strong body, and a connected spirit."
