I originally became interested in joining Bikram yoga after reviewing the web site. I was looking for a way to improve my flexability and to help with my self healing. I also really wanted to improve my technique in my martial arts practice. In the begining I didn't think I would be able to participate in class because of the warm environment and my lack of concentration.

In my first class I was very shaky and unfocused. I also realized that I was not flexable at all. I felt overheated and like I had poor balance. I spoke with Megan, one of the instructors, and she propsed a plan that would one day lead to being able to participate in a Bikram class daily. i stuck with this plan and have achieved many personal challenges and at times have even practiced daily.

My favorite posture nowadays is backward bending. I really enjoy 90 minutes of stretching and I even like the warm environment now. Hot yoga is the most practical sport I have ever practiced. I also use yoga as a self healing art that anyone can do. When I see people sitiing postures out I want to tell them that even if you are tired or burnt out, you should at least try every posture. I understand that each posture has a different healing function.
