Laurie Popovac

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.

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.

Tany Nguyen

As a pediatric speech therapist, I decided to enroll in my first Bikram yoga class in 2007 to reduce stress and anxiety. After a few classes, I began to notice the increased mental focus, improved physical strength, and spiritual growth. This motivated me to complete her 200-hour Hot Yoga Teacher Training, with a goal to deepen my knowledge and truly embody the lifestyle. Having practiced yoga for almost ten years, the practice has help me to be more enthusiastic, positive and zestful person. I’m excited to this healing practice and passion for Bikram Yoga.

Ashley Flowers

I took my first Bikram Yoga class two weeks after moving to Sacramento from Mississippi in 2012, and was hooked from my very first class. I initially went to class in search of a full-body workout that I could enjoy, but ultimately found so much more than that as my practice continued. I found that it provided a perfect balance to my life as a nurse. It greatly reduced my stress and anxiety, gave me the energy and agility needed to make it through long shifts, and I was able to experience relief from pain caused by herniated discs in my back. practicing for a year and a half, I decided to go to teacher training in 2014 so I could learn more and share this healing practice with others. I am thankful every day that I found this practice and I am constantly inspired by seeing the change it makes in others’ lives as well
