I was introduced to Bikram Yoga in 2010 after completing my 4th marathon. Due to constant cross training and long runs, I was experiencing tight hips and hamstrings. After a couple of weeks of practicing Bikram, I found the yoga opened my shoulders and hip flexors as well as stretched my IT band. I went on to complete 2 more marathons with less pain, resulting in best personal records.
After a traumatic injury in fall of 2011, I was told I would never be able to run again. My right knee and tibia bone were damaged. Determined to prove my surgeon wrong, I went back into the hot room to heal my body. With time, patience, and practice, I was able to heal the body in 14 weeks. Summer of 2012 I completed multiple 5k road races.
I am a true believer Bikram Yoga is a healing yoga. I’ve seen and felt the tremendous benefits in my body. I knew instantly I wanted to become a Bikram yoga teacher. In Spring 2014 I went to teacher training in Los Angeles, CA. I love sharing my experience with yoga students and seeing their transformations in class!
