Bikram Yoga

This class is taught by:

Bryan Massey

I started practicing Bikram Yoga in Tucson, AZ in 2007 after a friend’s recommendation. After walking out of my first class I knew this yoga was for me. I enjoy the challenge and how I feel after class. I went to teacher training in 2012 and have been teaching and learning ever since. What a great journey this has been for me.

Dawn Hoppe

I first discovered Bikram yoga in 2006. Initially I was looking for something calm my mind and ease my anxiety. It was not at all what I expected, but it was exactly what I needed. When I started, I was out of shape physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Gradually this yoga helped me heal mind, body, and soul. I kept showing up on my mat and I got to know myself. There was a feeling of connectedness and purpose that I hadn’t known before. I’ve now been teaching this yoga since 2007, and it continues to amaze me how powerful and transformative this practice is and how much I love sharing it with others.

Hi guys! I have been practicing Bikram Yoga since 2011 and went to Bikram Teacher Training in the Spring of 2014. I always try to bring lightness and humor to my life. Humor is said to often be the best medicine for the soul, so I love to bring some of this into my classes. To be able teach and learn from my students has been so rewarding and fulfilling. I continue to look forward to having more of these life enhancing experiences with the wonderful community here in Sacramento. When I'm not in the hot room, you can find me busy with my hair business as an independent hairstylist.

I found my yoga practice in 2009, and 6 months later decided to go to yoga training. I received my Bikram Yoga certification in 2010, and I my yin yoga certification in 2015. I am also currently enrolled in the College of Ayurveda, which is the sister science of yoga. I look forward to continuing to grow with my practice, studying the knowledge behind yoga and Ayurveda, and sharing this knowledge along the way.

Julie Havelock

I attended my first Bikram yoga class to stretch out and give therapy to my sore muscles and back pain. I immediately became hooked. I had never experienced a total body workout that gave me so much energy and such a complete sense of well-being. I became convinced this style of yoga was the key to superior health and wellness. An unanticipated but important bonus was how much this yoga was helping my sleep, moods, blood pressure, stress level, cholesterol levels, and countless other things I couldn’t see or feel. Through all my trials and tribulations, yoga has always been a source of solace for me. My goal is to bring the healing of yoga to anyone who wants to be part of our community. I hope you find Purely Hot Yoga to be a friendly and supportive place. I hope you discover the healing, sense of peace and well-being that so many others have found through this practice.
