In the summer of 2009, Seacoast Native Jason Destasio was looking for some kind of yoga. He knew nothing about yoga, but thought it could help with his sore knee he started to look around. Online searches came up with the studios closest to home; nothing really caught his eye. He was looking for something focused on the physical body for his sore knee. One day a friend brought him to Bikram Yoga Portsmouth. Entering the first class thinking “this is going to be no sweat”, he barely survived the ninety minutes and was hooked. Practicing day after day, and month after month his knee started to feel better. And to his surprise also his over all well being. Realizing he was getting more out of the yoga than he ever expected, he went to train with Bikram Choudhury in the Fall 2010 Teacher Training. He started teaching the day after his plane landed and has been loving every minute of it. With a little bit of persistent effort, it is amazing to watch the change in your body and mind.
