I found Bikram Yoga when I needed it the most in my life. My husband and I were heavily invested in the Real Estate market, him being a Real Estate Broker while I worked for a mortgage bank. We owned several homes and several Real Estate offices throughout California. When the market crashed in 2008, we lost everything. I was at the lowest point in my life. I was feeling very depressed about getting laid-off when we just had a baby a few months before. I was also the heaviest that I had ever been. Years prior, a good friend of mine who had practiced Bikram Yoga for many years recommended that I try it.

One random day, I walked past a Bikram Yoga studio, grabbed a flyer and decided to go in for a class. My first session was extremely difficult and I barely did any of the postures. The teacher told me to just stay in the class the entire 90 minutes, even if that’s all I did. I followed this instructor’s suggestion and when I went home that day, I felt a little change. I had this amazing burst of happiness and energy. I decided to go again the next day, and the next day. I kept hearing the teachers telling me to “trust the process”. Within two weeks, I was completely on the hook. Bikram Yoga helped rescue me from my darkest days. It was within my first month of regular practice that I knew I would one day become a teacher and own my own studio. I wanted to help spread this amazing practice that brought me so much love, peace, and confidence.

Yoga has changed my life in so many ways. I can’t imagine life without it. My goal is to help spread this life altering practice to as many people as possible.

I love Bikram Yoga and believe in it’s effectiveness. Everybody needs Yoga all the time and everytime!
