“When I started Bikram I was suffering chronic pain due to Rheumatoid Arthritis and was on heavy pain killers and disease modifying medication. My joints were very inflamed and painful, my muscles weak and more scarily, my liver had started to suffer due to the drugs. Within just a few weeks of practicing Bikram Yoga twice a week, I noticed a massive improvement in my joint flexibility, muscle tone and a huge reduction in pain and joint swelling.
I have gone from relying on up to 8 strong painkillers a day to some days none and have reduced the disease modifying drugs dramatically, with the guidance of my consultant. It has given me a much better quality of life.”
