Bikram Yoga has significantly transformed my life. I started taking yoga at work to deal with job stress. A friend brought me to my first Bikram class in 2004. My preference to continue to practice Bikram yoga stemmed from the discipline and challenge of the practice, as well as the heat. The heat was so kind to my body…eased my tight and aching muscles and joints. The aerobic challenge of the practice amazed me! Over time this yoga became an integral part of my self care and recovery program. When I look in the mirror I am forced to see things…for example, fear…the discipline of the practice makes you face these fears head on. I would be happy to share with anyone the particulars about what I have been able to overcome with this yoga, and specific metrics of health improvement. My overall health and well being has improved dramatically as a direct result of this practice, and with the help and support of all the Bikram Yoga teachers and students. One of Bikram’s senior teachers calls it ‘the prescription that has zero side effects’. Bikram’s philosophy has inspired me to truly believe that is ‘never too late to start from scratch once again’.
Caty has been practicing Bikram Yoga since 2004 and began teaching in 2007. Caty regularly lives and teaches in Richmond, VA. She is here locally throughout the holiday season visiting family and we are so thrilled to have her guest teaching at Bikram Hot Yoga Binghamton.
