Tim found himself taking his first Bikram Yoga class in the summer of 2009 after suffering a whiplash injury in a car accident. A couple of months of physiotherapy did little to ease the ongoing pain, so out of sheer desperation he decided to give yoga a go. Within two weeks the effects of the whiplash were almost gone, and Tim decided that once his introductory offer ran out he’d do one more month of Bikram just to be sure all traces of the injury were gone, then he’d give it up and get back to running. But when that second month was up he found himself coming back for more, and more, and more. A year later he did his first 30 Day Challenge, and not long after that began thinking that he might like to take his Bikram obsession to a new level by going to Teacher Training.
After being made redundant from his job as the managing editor of a publishing company in the summer of 2011, Tim decided it was now or never, and headed off to training in Los Angeles in the spring of 2012 for what would be nine of the most remarkable weeks of his life. Since returning to the UK Tim has been based at Bikram Yoga Surbiton in West London, where he continues to grow as a yoga teacher and develop his teaching skills under the watchful eye of Amanda Free, the UK's very first Bikram Yoga teacher.
