The bottom line, I’ve been coming to Bikram Yoga Delray Beach for 15 consecutive years. Why do I do it? Consistency. Jon and his staff are impeccable. The studio is cleaned and sanitized after each session. It is unadulterated Bikram. 26 postures, two breathing exercises. No frills. We come for the dialogue, the corney jokes, and discipline. No music, no fancy lights, just Bikram. It’s a chance to connect to the inner you, the part that is buried. Every time you come to class, you chip away at all the other stuff. Come and see. You will be amazed! The real deal!
I began my Bikram Yoga practice the day after Thanksgiving in 1989. What I learned from the first day is never, ever eat a turkey sandwich before class. I was seeing stars by Standing Head to Knee and I was looking at my reflection in the toilet bowl by Triangle. I thought I was going to die. It took about three weeks before trying again. Without the sandwich I made it through the class. I wanted to do this because I was having chronic back pain and knee problems. Once I got the hang of it I loved it. Bikram Yoga was just right for me. Even though I struggled through each class I kept at it. My instructor called me the “concrete man” for quite a while. Talk about stiff. Over the years I have become much more flexible.<p class="font_8"></p>
After 12 years of practice I found a time in my life when I could get away from my business for nine weeks and I went to teacher training in the fall of 2001. I began my teaching career in Washington DC, and then in Massachusetts. In my early days I taught all over South Florida. In 2007 I purchased the Bikram Yoga studio in Boca Raton. I ran that studio for the ten years. I planned on retiring at the end of last year but I became very restless after the studio was closed for a few months. I still love to practice and teach Bikram Yoga. I’m very happy to be on the staff here at Bikram Yoga Delray.<p class="font_8"></p>
I hope to get know all you soon!<p class="font_8"></p>
