“It was about how it made me feel inside, the sense of wellbeing I felt when it was over.”
I started practicing Bikram yoga in January of 2001. It was by far the most difficult workout that I had ever done, but I felt wonderful. At first it was not about the workout, it was about how it made me feel inside, the sense of well being that I felt when it was over. I had never in my life felt so calm and peaceful than I did that day. That afternoon after class, I decided I was going to become a teacher. It was such a life changing experience for me and I wanted to share that experience with other people. Of course shortly thereafter I saw physical results. I needed to lose 20 pounds after the birth of my son. The weight melted off very easily and at the same time I felt wonderful. I attended the teacher training in spring of 2003. Since then I have taught for my sister in Delray Beach, Florida before moving to Germany with my family. Two of my sisters as well as my sister in law are all certified Bikram instructors. My family and I have recently moved to the Richmond area and I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to meet such wonderful people at the Bikram Yoga Richmond studio.
