Rose was an overweight and out of shape kid, not very athletic and the "last one to get picked for the dodge ball team". She really just wanted to be skinny, and tried pretty much everything until learning about nutrition and fitness, and finding that proper exercise and eating healthy really DOES work!  As the years went by, she realized that getting healthy was even better and more important than getting skinny, and that feeling healthy and fit makes life a whole lot easier. She truly...
Dynamic Postural Integration and Structural Integration and Attunement “Man’s general way of thinking of the totality, i.e. his general world view, is crucial for overall order of the human mind itself. If he thinks of the totality as constituted of independent fragments, then that is how his mind will tend to operate, but if he can include everything coherently and harmoniously in an overall whole that is undivided, unbroken and without border (for every border is a division or break) then his...
Alice's Bikram yoga journey began in 2001 out of sheer curiosity.

Being a yoga teacher seemed like a great complement to her profession in the health field as...

Melissa was hooked immediately after the first day. It was a challenge, and she loved it. At the time, she was going through a slight depression. She felt alone, lost and had no...
Matt started Bikram Yoga because of a repetitive strain injury due to computer use. He was, at one time, in 24 hours of pain and not only questioning his ability to function in his career, but also questioning his ability to function on a day to day basis. One morning, Matt realized simple tasks were becoming increasingly difficult such cutting a banana or putting on his shoes and socks. When he found Bikram Yoga, he immediately loved it. It was just him, no weights, no props, just him…and the...
