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.”
