It is important for your safety that anyone teaching the Bikram Hot Yoga Method be trained properly.

There are, unfortunately, people who claim to be teachers and have not had the proper training. This can result in injury.

All teachers at Bikram Yoga Byron Bay have undergone intensive training in U.S.A with Bikram Choudhury before becoming certified and are re-certified every 3 years.

Jen MacLachlan


Jen MacLachlan, started practising Bikram in 2005, teaching training in 2008 in Acapulco. Straight after training I taught for Darlinghurst Bikram in Sydney for 3 years before opening Bikram Yoga Inner West in 2011. Two daughters who keep Cleave and I very busy, Ishana who is 2, and Samara, just a newbie.

Movement has always been my thing, from a degree in Contemporary Dance from the Uk in 1996, and many styles of yoga over the years. So looking forward to getting more of my own practise back at Bikram Yoga Byron Bay ( so busy with babies! ) and getting to know you all.

Cleave Williams


Cleave Williams, American, does some acting (The Sapphires ha ha) and started practising Bikram in 2008, co-owns and co-manages with Jen at Bikram Yoga Inner West but only recently did his teacher training in Thailand in 2013. Cleave loves to teach and practise, he is dynamic, strong and commanding and a big personality!
