This year marks my 20th year of studying and practicing, many forms of yoga. Six years ago, I realized the importance of a regular practice when I began learning about Bikram Yoga. The discipline has allowed me to understand and accept so much in life. My 9 week intense teacher training was in Thailand in 2015, and I have been teaching since July 2015.
Teaching yoga is about every single student in the room.The focus is on emphasizing what you can do, working hard, and to stay steady with that concept. My goal is to motivate each and every person to find their edges through that hard work.
This Spring, I received a certification to also teach Hot Pilates. What a wonderful compliment to teaching Bikram Yoga. A music fueled hour full of high cardio to target the core, upper body, legs, and arms.You develop long lean muscle mass, stamina, endurance and burn a lot of calories!
Since my certification, I have taught classes in Austin TX and Philadelphia, PA.
Bikram Express 60 Min. is a traditional hot yoga style condensed into a 60 minute class. You will practice the same 26 postures each class. Be prepared to sweat as the room is heated to about 105-110 degrees with 50% humidity. There is not much weight bearing on the wrists or upper body making this class ideal for beginners or those who cannot be weight bearing on their upper body.
The room is heated to allow for improved circulation and cardiovascular health as well as deep muscle stretching and elimination of toxins. Our classes are designed for practitioners of all ages; beginners are welcome. Both men and women love this intense workout, which develops strength, flexibility and balance.
Make sure you're hydrated, wear fitted clothing, bring a towel to place over your mat, and avoid eating a large meal 1-3 hours before coming to class.
