I completed teacher training in LA in Spring 2013, I taught my first Bikram class in San Francisco two weeks later. Before training the thought of standing up in front of 40 plus people and teaching terrified me but I have never looked back and this summer I got the chance to teach at the Bikram teacher training in India.
Having tried everything, Bikram Yoga is the best thing for both my physical health and mental wellbeing. I now have a great balance of teaching and practicing, hairdressing and looking after my husband, two daughters, two dogs and a horse.
Bikram Yoga’s 26 postures systematically move fresh, oxygenated blood to your entire body, to each organ and fiber, restoring all systems to healthy working order, just as nature intended. Proper weight, muscle tone, vibrant good health and a sense of well being will automatically follow.
The series is designed to scientifically warm and stretch muscles, ligaments and tendons, in the order in which they should be stretched.
Bikram Yoga has a celebrity following of film stars and sports stars and is world renowned as an incredibly effective workout. Due to the intense, heated environment you burn more calories in a Bikram class than other styles of yoga. It also presents a big challenge for the mind as you are completely absorbed by the practice, making it a great stress reliever as well as building confidence.
