I first developed my passion for Bikram yoga five years ago while pursuing my musical talents as a singer songwriter and studying Communication at CU Boulder. Soon enough, I walked away from writing, recording and performing and found my new passion in the healthier world of Bikram yoga. After a year of dedicated practice, I experienced the remarkable healing powers of Bikram yoga when I sustained a knee injury while backpacking in the Alaskan backcountry. That injury led to chronic tendonitis, a condition that medical professionals advised could only be remedied, but never fully cured. I challenged that diagnosis with a consistent Bikram practice and am now pain free. My interest in Bikram yoga has extended beyond the yoga studio and into all aspects of my life. In my final year of college, I focused my thesis on the identity of Bikram yoga instructors and finding meaning in work. In the Fall of 2012, I attended Bikrams teacher training. As a lifelong student and believer in the incredible benefits of the 26-posture series, I hope to eventually transfer my passion for yoga and communication into a career in corporate wellness and workplace happiness.
