I was introduced to yoga in 2009. Not long after I began practicing yoga I worked with one of the last direct disciples of Paramahansa Yogananda. Two years later I first practiced yoga in heat.
I discovered vitality I had not experienced in some time -- through coordinating breathing with my postures. My mind became more calm. What was most powerful for me was the impact of rhythmic breathing during postures for the entire ninety minutes of class. With my diligent practice I have found inner peace, and healthy lifestyle changes.
I practice almost daily, and through teaching hope to pass along the many benefits of yoga in heat, including the motivation to live a more balanced, peaceful life from the inside out. It is my hope that students will experience a calm presence and joy in a spontaneous and natural way. "When teaching, I like to focus on calm breathing, which in turn helps students reconnect with the power of stillness, and to just be."
Dick Winn instructs the following:
The ORIGINAL HOT YOGA! 26 postures, 2 breathing exercises, 90 minutes in a room heated to 105 degrees. You will systematically move fresh oxygenated blood to 100% of your body: every muscle, ligament, tendon, joint, organ is refreshed. 360 degrees. This aids the body in its healing process, restoring all systems to healthy working order just as nature intended.
Bikram Yoga is suitable for all ages and level of ability. No experienced required. All you have to do is try your best to receive the benefits. Every body can benefit from a regular yoga practice. Don't delay — your body and your mind will love it.
"Never too late, never too bad, never too old, never too sick to start all over from scratch once again."
