I started Bikram Yoga in 2008. My parents had been practicing for a few years and finally got me to come take a class, and I hated it. I was a gymnast and a cheerleader so I assumed it was going to be easy, it was not. I continued to go when I was forced to and as much as I didn't want to go, I always felt great after. Whenever I was stressed or having a bad day I would go take a class and had a place where I didn't have to think about anything else. My dad went to teacher training in 2010 and we all thought he was crazy. Then after many years of contemplating, I finally went to teacher training in Fall of 2015 in Thailand! It has definitely been a journey and I now look forward to helping others with their journey.

Bikram Yoga 90 Minute Class
The original Hot Yoga Class. Become the healthiest you have ever been! Improve your flexibility, strength and balance. Transform your body, mind and spirit. This is beginner's yoga - anyone can do it.
Hot HIIT is a training system that combines High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and Pilates principles. It combines muscle toning and cardio in a room heated to around 98 degrees. The practice creates long, lean muscle mass while burning fat.
It also, in turn creates rapid results. It strengthens your core, improves circulation, and increase flexibility.
Hot Pilates is performed on a yoga mat. All movements are low impact, which protects your joints and muscles from the pounding of other exercises like running and jumping.
