Student Feature: Fressa

By Pepper | Nov 25, 2017 | Comments Off on 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…

On Bikram Yoga and Injuries

By Pepper | Jul 31, 2017 | Comments Off on On Bikram Yoga and Injuries

About once a week — ok scratch that.  About once a day, someone will tell me they can’t practice for a couple months because they injured (fill in some body part).   I usually follow up with a sad attempt to tell them that Bikram Yoga will help them bounce back faster than going back…

Why You Need Trace Mineral Supplements

By Pepper | Jun 29, 2017 | Comments Off on Why You Need Trace Mineral Supplements

    One of the biggest concerns I hear from students is about muscle cramps.  You know, the one you get in your foot during Cobra Pose when your teacher keeps saying, “Point your toes!”  And you’re like, “Ow.  No.  Can’t.  Point.  Toes.”   I swear by trace mineral drops for this problem.  It sounds…

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…

  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,…

  Well, first off, to have a successful yoga class means you need to show up.  But, godddd that’s like THE hardest part.  Getting in the car, sitting through rush hour traffic after a long day, and waltzing into that hot, really hot, torture chamber of miracles.   It is hard to get to yoga…

#yogaeverywhere

By Pepper | Mar 6, 2017 | Comments Off on #yogaeverywhere

  These days, it’s rare that I get to take a vacation.  And even when I do, it’s hard to completely let go mentally.   There is always something to worry about, or plan for at the studio that it seems like my brain never really turns off.  The only time I’ve found that I…
