I first started practicing Bikram Yoga in 2009 after suffering a debilitating knee injury running a marathon. Even after months of physical therapy, I was unable to walk without excruciating pain and I became very depressed. A friend of mine (who had been suggesting Bikram Yoga to me for a few months) took me to my first class and I was immediately hooked. After my first class, I felt so much relief emotionally and mentally. My friends and family members noticed an immediate change in my attitude and my relationships with people. Physically, I knew that I was onto something and I began practicing Bikram Yoga on a daily basis. Two months later I found myself running again; stronger and more efficiently than I ever had before! I had such a transformative experience on so many levels practicing this Yoga that I could not wait to share it with others. I know what it feels like to be in physical and emotional pain and helping others work through similar experiences is the greatest gift. This yoga has allowed me to accomplish goals in my life that I never imagined possible. It has also helped me to become a kinder and more compassionate person. I love teaching this Yoga and sharing it with the Binghamton community as well as with people all over the world.
