Hot Yoga (90 mins class)

This class is taught by:

Carolyn Jikemi-Roberts

CJ Roberts: Head Teacher & Studio Director.

For CJ, yoga has been a life-saver, bringing balance to her life. CJ's neck and shoulders, which were damaged in a car accident, became pain-free through regular practice. Importantly, she has learnt to focus and be satisfied with what she can give mentally and physically on a class-by-class basis every day, just as long as she's doing her best. CJ has extremely high standards and tries optimally in all aspects of her life, always committing to going that extra mile if that's what's needed. She truly believes that people of all ages can and should practice yoga, especially those from eight to nine years up. Life for young people is quite fast these days and more than anything they need to be in touch with their inner selves and know their limitations to build their self-confidence.

CJ's ultimate goal as a teacher, coupled with her natural ability to read the body and quickly assess misalignments and potential weaknesses, is to train some yoga champions of the future. CJ teaches a dynamic class, leaving your whole body worked hard. This leaves you energised and refreshed. In her dual role as a studio owner in Brighton and Balham, CJ hopes to enthuse all the students at her studios with her wealth of experience gained from observing how yoga really does heal, change the way we think and behave, but most of all, change the way we interact with people in our lives. 'Self love, self preservation and a will to succeed, starts with you.'


Karen B Butler

Karen was first introduced to Bikram yoga early 2009. Having suffered with lower back pain for many years, she found immediate relief and benefit, and immersed herself into the discipline. With strict dedication she achieved rapid progression and found her life underwent significant improvement, as she developed both spiritually and physiologically. In spring of 2011, she decided she wanted to pass on this wonderful experience to others, undertaking the Bikram training course in Los Angeles and is now a fully qualified teacher. Karens philosophy is 'To know yoga, is to know Peace.' She is looking forward to helping others achieve the serenity and fulfilment she has found in her teaching. In 2014 Karen wanted to broaden her teaching skills and qualified in pregnancy yoga.

Paul Spencer Dobson

Paul was on a trip to Miami 2004 when he saw a sign for a Bikram Yoga studio. After the first class he was hooked, he couldn’t get enough of it! Paul practiced every day of his vacation. Returning to London, Paul continued with his practice before going on the teacher training in Spring 2006. Paul’s background is in Contemporary Dance. He performed for various dance companies around Europe and his yoga practice has given him focus. Paul enjoys teaching and being able to support the students with their practice. Paul encourages students to have an awareness of their body, mind and the process of practicing yoga. He teaches a disciplined, positive class with a light sense of humour.

Marta Antero

Marta started her Bikram journey in 2009 when one of her friends suggested Bikram and it was love at first class. In 2013 she gave up her career in finance to attend the Bikram yoga teacher training. Besides Bikram yoga she is a certified teacher in Kundalini Yoga and Kids Yoga and her next goal is to specialise in teaching kids with special needs. After graduating she taught in the US, Australia and in Indonesia. She loves sharing her passion for yoga wherever she goes. Teaching in so many different studios, and to such a diversity of students from different cultures, is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling experiences.

Marta's classes are full of energy and passion she transmits to the students and she emphasizes the importance of breathing, alignment and having fun. She believes yoga is not about the poses but about controlling the mind through the breathing. She encourages the students to push themselves through their mental barriers so that they can develop their true potential without all the self-imposed mind limitations.

Bikram Yoga is a form of Hatha Yoga conducted in a heated room. The 90 minute class is designed to work all the muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints in the entire body throughout the 26 postures. Beginners are welcome. Be prepared to sweat!
