Twelve years after I took my first class I realized that I would like hot yoga to be a key part of my life. To quote Bikram, “You’re never too old, never too bad, never too late, and never too sick to start from scratch once again.” That applies to all.
Why I Practice
I fell in love with hot yoga in 2004 after I took my first Bikram Yoga class. It was a great refuge from my stressful daily job as an IT professional. I was taken by Bikram-style yoga's physicality, structure, and mindfulness. It also helped that it was done in a hot room, as I really enjoy being in the warm environment. Both my body and mind feel great after class.
Why I Teach
As a teacher, I would like to pass Bikram style yoga's strict and loving discipline to the students to allow them to grow their practice physically and spiritually, release daily stress and to experience the connection between mind and body.
