I began Bikram yoga when a friend at my gym recommended it to supplement my workouts. I thought yoga might be too slow and not challenging enough for me, but since my hips and knees were sore from a lifetime of running, I reluctantly decided to give it a try. After only three months of practice, I was so positively overwhelmed by the physical, mental, and spiritual transformation I experienced, I just had to share it with others. Three years later, in the Spring of 2015, I found myself at Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in Thailand and an integral part of the Bikram Yoga family. Often called a “90-minute, open-eyed, moving meditation,” the aspect of mindfulness is my favorite part of the yoga, which has improved my ability to focus and concentrate more deeply and for longer periods of time, improving my effectiveness as a high school English teacher and positively enriching all of my relationships, with myself and with others. I am a happier, healthier person since discovering Bikram yoga, and teaching the series has become one of my greatest achievements and my passion. My communication skills, energy, and awareness of students’ individual challenges make me a super-sensitive force in the hot room. “Mo” “Mo-Jo” ; ). Spring 2015.
