I took my first Bikram class in 1999 and was immediately hooked. The consistent 26 poses and hot room kept me coming back. I knew I wanted to teach, but soon was expecting my first child. After Cate was born I started practicing again. With constant encouragement from my husband and Greg McCann, Oklahoma's first certified Bikram instructor, I attended teacher training in September 2001. It was an intense nine weeks that I'm grateful to have experienced. I loved teaching, but took a break to raise a family, six kids in all. Unfortunately I also stopped practicing. I'm so grateful to be back in the hot room. I didn't realize how much I needed it until I came back. The Bikram method energizes me from the inside out. Teaching again has been a blast! I love seeing many old faces and many new.
