Ayesha Nauth

Ayesha discovered Bikram yoga in 2004. She was recommended by a friend who suggested that it would be beneficial for her as she had severe Rheumatoid Arthritis. At the time, she was struggling to walk or use her hands because they were so painful and swollen. After years and years of medical treatment, using a walking stick and reliant on her family, she decided to make a big change by trying Bikram yoga. She pushed herself through the pain her body endured during class, especially Fixed Firm pose and Awkward pose and struggled though the rest. After years and years of sweating it out with Bikram yoga, she is now able to do all the postures. Also she is now able to play sports again, cycling and she can not only walk again but she can run.
Ayesha decided to leave Investment Banking in 2010 to become a Bikram Yoga Teacher and with this goal in mind, she graduated in Spring 2010. She then competed in the UK Yoga Asana Championships 2012 and came 3rd in the competition and in 2013 Ayesha won the UK Asana championships and went on to represent the UK in the International Yoga Championships in LA.

Ayesha would like to spread the word of all the benefits Bikram yoga has to offer and inspire as many people as possible.

Simon Goddard

A Brighton native, Simon's athletic endeavours began with him running laps at Withdean Stadium while Dad had a pint at The Sportsman. He played rugby at university (UCL), and took up competing in triathlon and endurance sports while living in New York including the Ironman distance. 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, Simon walked away from +20 years as a media executive to open 'Bikram in the Lanes' with his wife; recognising the continuing rise in Bikram's popularity was born out of it's accessibility and applicability to everyone.
Inspired by the classic 90 minute series, this class provides a shorter version of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises.  Instead of doing 2 sets of each posture, we'll only have time to do one set of most poses.  We recommend first timers start with the 90 minute class so you have a chance to take a break if you need one, sit down one set while you have a rest and still leave with the full prescription!  It's a powerful sequence!
