Hot Yoga 60

Inette Linstead

I attended several Native American sweat lodges several years ago. A friend in one of them suggested I try Bikram yoga in March 2006. I was hooked!

I love that it is physically challenging. I also liked that this yoga helped me to breathe in a meditative and rhythmic way – helping me to stay internally calm, even when experiencing intensity externally. When I practice Bikram yoga, I no longer have “monkey mind,” no inner dialogue. It brings me right into the moment. I love the heat. Practicing yoga makes me happy.

Bikram yoga has taught me humility, acceptance, and surrender. I have worked as a licensed nurse for twenty-two years. Three years ago I decided to attend nine weeks of teacher training, taking two 90-minute classes a day, as well as classroom instruction. “I gained a deeper understanding of the postures and the practice,” I enjoy teaching yoga, too. “I get so much from practicing Bikram yoga, I love sharing my passion for it with students, and see them grow in mental focus, physical strength, and flexibility.” My message to students: “Comparison is the thief of joy; I would suggest not to compare your practice to anyone else's but your own. Show up on your mat and keep trying.”

My first Bikram yoga class was here, in San Luis Obispo, September 2004. I decided to try this yoga upon the insistence of a good friend. The absolute challenge and exhilaration I felt from it all is what kept me coming back to class, and the requirement was to focus clearly. I love Bikram yoga because it has enhanced my overall well-being and coping skills for life. This yoga has helped me overcome physical obstacles, including a back issue that is now resolved, and has enabled me to develop and maintain super good health.

I attended teacher training in Acapulco, Mexico spring of 2008. I enjoy teaching Bikram yoga to see the progress and breakthroughs students achieve with their practice. It’s rewarding to watch students grow to appreciate what I am so enthusiastic about. I love the environment in the room during class, seeing long-time practitioners working alongside new students.

Message to you the student:

“Be as patient as you can with yourself. Be diligent and never judge yourself for what you can’t do.”
