I took my first Bikram Yoga class in March 2009 in Rottedam. Before this I had done many other styles of yoga; general Hatha yoga, hot yoga, power yoga and some others (too many names to remember). I had done them both at home and other yoga studios for several years. A friend invited me to come to Bikram Yoga with her as she has received a flyer in her mail box. The class was great and I felt that it was really exactly what I needed. I did what my body and mind could handle at that time. I came back for more classes as I felt so positively different after that first class. I wanted to feel that way more often.
Through my regular Bikram Yoga practice I became more flexible not only in my body but also in my mind. I used to be a hot tempered person but since doing this yoga I am much calmer body and mind. This was such a powerful change to experience for myself I wanted to share it with others and what better way than to become a teacher?
I attended Bikram’s teacher training program in 2011 and have been teaching ever since. I really enjoy it and learn so much from it. When I teach I know I am doing something good and that I am on the right path. I get to see people change for the better in body and mind. I see that even 1 class can make a difference in someone’s life. I am proud and happy that I am allowed to be a part of that. I like to help others and this is such a great way to do it.
