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,…

Mario was one of BYF’s first students back in 2014.  I started seeing Mario at the studio pretty frequently a few months ago near the end of 2016.    Then I started seeing him A LOT so decided to check out his profile to see just how often he was practicing.  Turns out he had…

Teacher Feature: Jennifer

  I’ve always known Jennifer to be extremely dedicated to the Bikram Yoga practice.  But what I also admire about her is her ability to find balance in her life. Jennifer is so multi-faceted and I feel there’s always something new to learn about her.  She’s got a regular yoga practice, a full teaching schedule, two…

Student Feature: Teresita

Before I asked Teresita if I could feature her in the BYF newsletter this month, I took a look at her profile and saw she’d been practicing for exactly a year! Looking at her postures now and after reading her story, I am in awe at the struggles she’s had to push through to come this far in the last…

Student Feature: Brandon

I hear all the time from other students who see Brandon’s practice, “Wow, that guy is so flexible/talented/awesome.”  And he is. Brandon is an amazing yogi.  But behind all the great flexibility and balance, is a story of great healing.  It may not look this way, but Brandon has a titanium rod in his femur!…
