Prior to teaching Bikram yoga, I had several careers, but nothing prepared me for the change that I was about to experience.
At the suggestion of a friend I took my first Bikram Yoga class on February 1, 2010. I don’t remember many details about that first class, but at the end of the class I do recall a feeling unlike anything I’d ever experienced. And I wanted to experience it again – and again, and again. Class was not easy, and there were postures with which I really struggled, but as I began to attend class regularly, the sustained practice of Bikram Yoga changed me profoundly.
I was able to be more present in my own life. My body felt better than it ever had. I had more sustained energy. Whatever life threw at me, I was able to meet with much more calm and focus than ever before. I learned that the regular practice of Bikram yoga helps you to look in the mirror, see who you are, accept who you are and, eventually, love who you are. In Spring 2019, I was finally able to attend Bikram Yoga Teacher Training and my life was transformed again. Even after years of practice, I learned so much more about myself and the power of this yoga. It renewed and intensified my desire to teach others in the hope that they will experience the physical, emotional and spiritual well being that I feel every day as a result of practicing this yoga. There is true magic in Bikram yoga and I want to share it with the world.
