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.
