Certified Fall 2008 in Acapulco: After my first class in New York City in the year 2000, I realized that yoga was much more than stretching and breathing. It’s tough! I tried many yoga styles, but the physical intensity and emphasis on self-discipline and concentration in Bikram Yoga resonated with my martial arts practice (Kendo, the Japanese “way of the sword”). With patient practice, my aches and pains whittled away, and my mental clarity and focus outside the yoga room improved.
After 19 years of working the financial industry and eight years of regular practice, I became a certified Bikram Yoga Teacher. I am fascinated with the health benefits of Bikram Yoga and am inspired by student testimonials we hear on a daily basis. I love the yoga community. Musicians, artists, athletes, moms and dads, students and seniors, high techs and corporate execs—all stand side-by-side in class—improving lives through the simple practice of yoga postures. Seeing every smiling, happy face leave our studios energizes me and is my constant source of inspiration.
