Certified Bikram Yoga Instructor
I began practicing Bikram Yoga in Naples, Florida where I lived for the past eight years with my husband Rob and our dog Lily. I was working for a design firm as a licensed interior designer and moving right along on the path that I had “planned”. Then I took my first Bikram yoga class and I knew that my life and my path were on the verge of taking an unexpected turn in a very different direction…and I trusted it! I immediately established a regular practice right from the first class and made it my intention very early on to attend teacher training so that I could share the practice with others.
I managed to attend training in the Fall of 2009 in Las Vegas. I came to the practice for the physical intensity of it, for the work out, but what I realized fairly quickly was that was just the tip of the iceberg…there was soooo much more! This practice has been so much about self-realization for me. Working through all the layers, physical, mental, spiritual, the good, the bad and the painful; all to understand and know my self (the higher self) better. It is a journey that continues on and on and I continue to trust it! It has taught me stillness, acceptance , trust, surrender, determination and so much more…not to mention I feel great too!
My husband and I have recently moved back to Ohio for his work. I continue to trust the journey, despite there being no Bikram yoga studios currently located in Ohio. However, lucky for me, my parents live in Williamsville and they don’t mind me visiting from time to time so I am able to visit Bikram Yoga Williamsville too! I so am excited and grateful to be a part of your yoga community, the good energy and amazing people! Looking forward to meeting each of you soon!
