bond Please tell us a little about yourself.
I am a Chicago native and moved to San Antonio six years ago, which is when I started practicing Bikram.

The hot yoga studio where I was practicing closed, and that’s when I tried Bikram. I continue to practice for the physical benefits as well as the calm that yoga provides.

My goal is a daily practice.
What specific physical issues, if any, did you have before taking your first class?
I’ve always had knee trouble and through my practice I’ve regained improved mobility.

I sleep better and my mind is quieter and less cluttered.
How has this practice changed your health and life? Any emotional or other benefits?
It has toned my body and grounded me.

I love love my yoga friends. I love my yoga teachers and the sparkling, clean studios with an occasional Labrador Retriever greeter.

I’ll see you tomorrow.
