“Who wants to be old and sick when we can be young and active?”
I first tried Bikram Hot Yoga in March of 2004, and I went to the training in the fall of 2007, to become a certified Bikram Yoga instructor. What’s the best thing about hot yoga? The best thing is the heat and the way the sequence of postures makes each cell of the body hum afterwards. What’s the best thing about becoming an instructor? I get to learn more about this yoga and why it works so well by teaching others. We may never completely understand why Bikram’s yoga series makes people heal but believe me it does. I can speak for older people since I was born in 1951, when yoga was unheard of around Richmond. I predict we are going to change bodies and brains by doing yoga. Who wants to be old and sick when we can be young and active? There’s nothing that says we need to be infirmed and feeble before we die. What’s bringing me back to yoga again and again? It’s a science that I want to study and live with for as long as I can.
