Knee Locking Inspiration

Student Feature: Alpa

  I love to watch Alpa practice because she smiles coming out of every posture.  I asked her one time why she smiles so much in class, and she responded with, “it just feels so good.”  She laughed to herself all the way back to her car.   Whenever someone tells me it’s too late…

Student Feature: Corey

  When I first met Corey, I felt like he had quite a bit of hesitation about his yoga practice.  He told me about his back spasms and how he had been in several work-related accidents that really messed up his alignment.  I asked him how many times a week he practiced, and at the…

Healing a broken pelvis.

  I’m so excited to be hosting Gianna at our upcoming workshop on October 28th.   Gianna has incredible insight on yoga and movement, and healing the body through the two.  You’ve already seen what a consistent practice can do for your biochemistry (if you haven’t, click here).  But yoga can also help to realign your…

How I climbed back on the wagon.

I recently took a trip overseas to Shanghai and Taipei.  It was my first time overseas in 6 years!   It was, of course, an amazing trip minus the fact that there was no yoga, no hot yoga, no Bikram Yoga.  No.  Yoga.   I did manage to get to the gym almost every day. …

Student Update: Joel

If you practiced at BYF at all last year, then you’ve seen Joel around.  Or even more likely, you’ve practiced with him.   He made a huge accomplishment a couple days ago:  365 classes in 365 days.  Actually, I’m positive he did at least one double, so let’s make that 366 classes.  He showed up…

Student Feature: Fressa

“Bikram yoga can be expensive, but the amount of money being spent at doctor visits and prescriptions is more than going to yoga 3x a week. I stand by that 100%.” I so enjoy having Fressa in class.  She’s always all smiles.  During the October Transformation Challenge she had lost a couple inches, but when…

Student Feature: Catherine

I got a really beautiful, grateful email one day from Catherine, only about a month into her practice.  She gave us her backstory and the different diagnoses she had been given.  Just one month of consistent practice and she was already seeing huge changes in her health.  It’s been six months since then.  As evidenced…

Student Feature: Joel

  When I first met Joel, he told me he was dealing with arthritis.  Really nonchalant about the whole thing.  After I got to know him a bit more, and had the pleasure of leading him through class a few times, he let me in on his condition.   Joel has lived with arthritis, gout,…
