Bridgett Ane relocated to London from New York in 2007. She began practising Hatha Yoga in 1995, then Ashtanga and Vinyasa, until she was introduced to Bikram Yoga in 2000 and change was almost immediate. Fascinated with the series’ systematic approach to and the perfect balance of body: strength/flexibility/cardio, and mind: concentration/patience/faith/self-control, Bikram method became her yoga of choice.
Although not naturally flexible, her willpower and commitment reshaped her body and life, and she has been chosen three times to represent the UK at the International Yoga Asana Championships.
A 2006 Teacher Training graduate, she has taught all over the US. With a BFA in Acting, she is both an actor and a dancer and has been published in several journals, including Yoga Magazine.
Having been diagnosed with the auto-immune disorder Interstitial Cystitis in 2009, she has experienced practising in pain and with limited mobility. “My approach to class had to change, and healing mode became the only way. The Bikram practice has helped me heal myself naturally without requiring the medication I was told I’d be on for a lifetime.”
