    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Charmain is aiming towards a self-funded PhD. Studying the neuroscience of the central nervous system, with particular reference to Dementia. Bikram Yoga has been specifically designed to help heal the spinal energies in the human body. The Teacher Training Course that is offered, is to help Charmain further her studies, deepen her understanding of Bikram Yoga and the correlation to neuroscience. By becoming a teacher of the practice, we can make our center more accessible to the local community and become part of her research which will benefit our entire society.

    As the Director of ( I have personally had an interest in keeping Bikram Yoga alive in Northern Ireland for these very reasons. Much education is needed and teaching in a post-conflict society has taught me how we are in need of great change. Our suicide and depression rates are disturbing. We are committed to help make our environment a healthier place to live. The devastating ramifications of post-traumatic stress, social and economical problems have a detrimental affect on society at large. A healthy mind, a healthy body, a healthy workplace = a healthy society.

    The funds raised will be spent on sending Charmain to the Teacher Training in Mexico, Acapulco this coming September 2017. She will under go a 9 week, over 500 hours of therapeutic yoga training, lectures, physiology, anatomy, posture clinics, philosophy and learn how to deliver a set of instructions which have been designed to apply a systematic sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises to the human body which helps restore the body back to proper working order, just as nature intended. The Bikram Yoga TT offers this exact system. It uniquely and specifically offers a simple and effective way for us to integrate yoga into our hectic western lives. The course is $12,500 and the flights are not included. To read more about us and Charmain:
