He was introduced to the Bikram series in 2006 while living in New York and used Bikram initially to supplement gym workouts which he disliked enormously. Over a period of 9 months he saw his body respond favourably to a regular practice of 3/4 times a week, and within a year was determined to go to the next level and put himself through teacher training.
This experience gave him a new found desire to teach and share the series with a wider audience, recognising first hand the countless benefits for those that simply 'do the yoga'. Although he is still engaged with endurance sports, Bikram has become his primary work-out for body and mind, developing a greater sense of balance while providing strength and flexibility.
Having witnessed first hand the effect of a regular practice on himself and his students, he opened 'Bikram in the Lanes' with his wife in the Spring of 2010; recognising the continuing rise in Bikram's popularity was born out of it's accessibility and applicability to everyone.
