For me Bikram yoga was love at first sight. I practiced daily and shortly after decided to go to training. I have been teaching since 2007.It has been my way of sharing my love for the practice. The practice for me is beyond a physical practice..It starts on the mat. Focus, concentrate, meditate, 90 minutes, 26 postures, 2 breathing exercises.It can be challenging, intense, powerful and so rewarding. Worth every minute! I look forward to every class I teach. I look forward to every class I take. I am grateful to the wonderful students, teachers, and studio owners that have inspired me throughout the years.
