Love at First Sweat

My sweating addiction started the moment I took my first Bikram Yoga class, nearly ten years ago! I couldn’t believe how detoxified (and exhausted!) I felt after that first experience. Although the class was extremely challenging, something inside me “clicked” and I knew I would make Bikram Yoga part of my life.

Fast forward nine and a half years and in that time I became certified to teach Bikram Yoga and even opened my own studio. It’s funny, before I started doing the yoga and would just hear about it I would think, “oh, I’ll never be able to do that.” Then I did it and felt great! When I wanted to become a teacher my initial thought was, “I don’t see how that would be possible.” But you know what, it WAS. Then before opening my studio I faced road block after road block but somehow found the right space at the right time. (Well, not somehow, it was a lot of hard work and perseverance, not to mention I had a great team – my lawyer, realtor, contractor, and supportive family – helping me)!


The point is, just because something might seem unattainable at the beginning, keep at it. Do a little bit at a time. And congratulate yourself for your efforts and achievements along the way.
