May was "Mat money month for Sierra Rose" | 3.5.11
Bikram Yoga Fitzroy helped to raise money for Sierra's further medical treatment. We donated all yoga mat hire proceeds to Karen and Shane for their daughter's operation to relieve the spasticity associated with cerebral palsy. We are so grateful to all the people who helped with the appeal for Sierra Rose. It looks like we raised around $1950! See the Help Sierra Bolgspot...

Urgent Appeal ~ Sierra Rose | 4.6.10
"The more we take the welfare of others to heart and work for their benefit the more benefit we derive for ourselves. This is a fact that we can see" - Dalai Lama
For two years, the Melbourne Bikram community has been incredibly generous during two November Yoga Challenges in raising money for our teacher Karen and her husband Shane in providing treatment and specialised equipment to help their daughter, Sierra Rose who has severe cerebral palsy.
This year we had decided NOT to do a November fund raising as Karen's family has been grateful for what has been done but are equally understanding that there may be other students or families equally in need of help.
We have, however, just learned that Sierra is suffering from increasingly frequent epileptic fits and urgently needs medical attention that is unavailable in Australia.
We are therefore going to donate all mat hire money for the month of June to Karen and her family as a small gesture of support in 2010.
Thank you ahead of time to all those students who will be hiring mats this month.
We will also have a donation box if you wish to make your own personal contribution.

Tips for completing a challenge...
May 30 Day Challenge is over! | 4.6.10
We want to congratulate all those students who signed up for the May challenge..even if you did not do the full 30 days. We are proud of you for even thinking about stepping out of your comfort zone and attempting to do a daily practice over a longer period of time. You have shown yourselves to have strength, focus and determination...you are all winners!
May 1st will be the beginning of our
30-day challenge. | 22.4.10
The 30-day challenge is when you complete 30 Bikram Yoga classes in 30 days. The ideal way is of course to do a class a day, but you can also do two classes in one day and have a break the next day or to make up for a missed class.
The beauty of the 30-day challenge is exactly that - it's a challenge and a great way for you to push past your perceived limitations, step out of your comfort zone and see what you can achieve. Many students gain significant benefits when they do a 30-day challenge and it is a great way to really hone and refine your yoga practice.
Apart from gaining greater muscle tone, core strength, increased flexibility, weight loss, plus a feeling of amazing vitality, as an additional reward, we also offer a discount on a one-month's membership of 50% for every student who successfully completes their challenge.
To join the challenge you need to sign up on the sheet in reception and on the white board downstairs by the studio. The cheapest way to practice in the challenge is to purchase a monthly unlimited pass.
If you have any questions about completing a challenge please ask your teacher or email us.

Our Sierra Rose Appeal | 1.10.09
We are proud to support Sierra and her family, to help raise funds for her special medical care. The month of November, for the second year now, is this little girl's special month at Bikram Yoga Fitzroy. Karen is one of our teachers and Sierra Rose is Karen and husband Shane's beautiful young daughter. Sierra Rose has severe cerebral palsy and medical expenses run very high for this family.
Last year, with the help of many Bikram students and other individuals, as well as other Bikram studios, both in Australia and overseas, Bikram Yoga Fitzroy ran a November Yoga Challenge that raised over $18,000 which helped the family fund a trip to Germany for ground-breaking stem cell therapy.
