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.

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 started practicing Bikram yoga on Oahu in 2001. After years of sports injuries and denying surgery I chose an alternative approach to well-being. Instantly feeling the therapeutic benefits of the practice through my own actualization of the breath, body and mind connection, I decided to share this method with the world. Since teacher training in 2006 I have continued to follow my passion traveling and teaching. With gratitude and Aloha I’m grateful to guide you on your personal journey of health and happiness.

I've been teaching, practicing, living, and breathing yoga since nursing school, 2006! My passion is health and empowering people to move their bodies to optimize their mind, body, and soul. I believe in the power of positive and mindful movement, and that everyone has a right to experience this in their daily life. I'm a certified Bikram teacher, along with power yoga, forest yoga, and Inferno Hot Pilates. I continue to learn and gain knowledge in health care and mindful movement every day, and I love being able to integrate the two and share this with my students.

I was born and raised in Mexico City, speak two languages, have a degree in Communications and worked as a professional musician in the Mexican rock scene. I moved to Northern California in 2006 and began practicing yoga intensively and finally found my calling to become a Bikram yoga teacher in 2011. After almost 10 years of using essential oils to support my health and enhance my yoga practice, I built a career with Young Living Essential Oils to compliment my yoga career. Music is still a major part of my life, and I’m currently the lead guitar player for Northern California’s ultimate Cure tribute band. My mission is to foster and share wellness, purpose and abundance through yoga, essential oils and music.

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.

I took my first Bikram yoga class in 2008 in Stockton, and soon after moved to Bangkok, Thailand where I continued my practice and became a teacher a year later. I have traveled the world teaching yoga, from Colombia, Morocco to Mexico. I believe yoga is a lifetime practice and appreciate its challenges and breakthroughs. My passion is creative expression through movement and painting, offering healing and empowerment for women through global retreats, art classes, and my paintings. Off the mat, I teach Art Alchemy throughout NorCal, and I’m the official rose artist for University Park World Peace Rose Garden in Stockton.

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.

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.

Beginning my yoga journey in 2003, I was hooked from the first classed; the intensity, the connection, the sweat. I loved the challenge and the states of bliss. I became a teacher in the fall of 2006, and have continued to be in awe of the amazing magic and the many layers of yoga on and off the mat! I feel so blessed and grateful to be able to lead and share with people on this life's path!

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

I took by first Bikram yoga class in 2003 on the recommendation of an old teammate, and what I remember most was how much I hated it. I even made a deal with myself that if I finished the class I’d never go back. I had been an athlete and was now an overweight, overstressed, depressed law student. The day after the first class, something inside me said to go back and I have - for the past 13 years. Over that time, almost everything about my life has changed: physically, mentally, emotionally. I went to Bikram's teacher training in 2012 because I wanted to share this amazing tool with others and teaching is my happiest place on earth. Watching students struggle, succeed, and find power they didn't know they had is so inspiring!
