Ben and Anna Korkmaz began putting the wheels in motion to open a studio back in February 2010, when they could see a need for an affiliated Bikram Yoga studio in Tasmania. Having grown up in Hobart, they both have a connection with the Tasmanian people and way of life and wanted to give back to the local community.
After starting their Bikram Yoga practice several years ago, they felt immediate benefits as a result. Ben had suffered from severe back pain for many years, yet after being in the hot room and slowly performing each posture, his pain began to subside. He continued to work through his physical pain and before long he was able to practice the yoga postures with very little pain and more range of motion. Anna began practicing during a very low emotional point in her life and realised that after each class – she felt happy! With every class that she did, she simply felt lighter and more free. The emotional release she felt during her yoga practice made her happier than she had been in a long time and Ben agreed! Although their levels of physical, mental and emotional healing were different, Ben and Anna both knew that they simply had to share this gift of yoga with others. Anna completed her training in 2009 and has been travelling Australia-wide teaching since then. Ben will be attending Bikram’s teacher training in 2011 and will then be teaching at Studio New Town.
Studio New Town has been a labour of love for Ben and Anna as they have worked day and night to bring Bikram Yoga and all its benefits to Hobart. They will be bringing you certified teachers from across Australia, as well as overseas and are excited about their journey ahead.
They hope that through this endeavour, others are inspired to give Bikram Yoga a go and join the community being created at Bikram Yoga Studio New Town.
