Chelsea brought me to my first Bikram class almost three years ago at the Brickell studio.
I absolutely hated it. I had a very visceral reaction to the class; afterwards I was really irritated and I wanted to pick fights with the other yogis in the locker room. I swore that I'd never go back and didn't until almost a year later when some other friends took me to a class. I'm really glad I went to that one because I came out of it feeling amazing and ready to do it again. I've been coming to BYCM steady for a good year and a half now.
Camel was my favorite posture at the beginning because my backbend is naturally pretty strong, but lately, I love doing toe stand because I'm finally able to stay balanced and raise my eyes to meet my own in the mirror.
Standing Head to Knee posture. I arrive at the yoga studio daily in hopes that Bikram himself has abolished that posture from the series.
I grew up in Pittsburgh PA and moved to Miami when I was 18 to go to UM.
It provides me with an activity that centers me. I can be having a horrible day; feeling anxious, lazy, hung-over, down in the dumps etc. but I know taking class will always make me feel better than I did. Being dedicated to the practice also positively affects my sleep schedule, my eating habits and my recovery time. I rarely show up to a DJ gig anymore without having taken class earlier in the day because of how centered and present it makes me feel.
That remains to be seen; I have yet to complete a 30-in-30 challenge. I just finished a 4 time per week challenge, which was more than enough challenge for me some weeks with my schedule being the way it is.
Suviche is my favorite local post-yoga recovery meal. So often during class I'm just laying there in savasana wishing I was eating ceviche. Not really sure what is my favorite restaurant in the world, there are still so many I have yet to try!
My dad has always been a big inspiration to me. He was injured when he was 19 and became a quadriplegic. He never let that get him down and continued working hard along his path in life and now runs his own very successful business and has a loving family. He has taught me the definition of hard work and dedication.
Hearing someone fart inside the yoga room.
