Beautiful studio with great energy! I practiced here several times while in town from Atlanta. The changing rooms are large and very clean. There are beautiful murals throughout the facility that are done by a local artist. They even have a well stocked retail area.
I love the original hot 26 & 2 and the instructors were encouraging and very welcoming. I purchased the one month unlimited for $49 which is a great deal. I totally recommend this studio and plan to practice here again whenever I’m in Naples.
My introduction to Yoga was much different than most people... In 1999 I had been working well over a decade in my Real Estate Business when in the door walked a new potential customer from California. We talked a while and set out to find him the perfect home! As we drove and looked at properties, he began to tell me about this amazing Yoga that he had learned while in Califoria. He further challenged me to try it once he had his new home ready and a room dedicated to the practice. With alot of skeptisism....I went and tried what was called Bikram Yoga. The first class was done via a CD of Bikram in 1995 teaching a class. I found it to be very difficult and afterwards very rewarding. I truly was amazed!! My whole life was spent in activies like Sports and running...things that break the body down. I could feel the difference in the way my body felt by performing the Yoga poses and the heat. I felt clean and renewed...not run down. At that time there were only 2 Yoga Schools in Florida... Key West and Sarasota!! My first 4 years I practiced in my bathroom with CD's!! In the summer of 2004 I decided to go out to LA and take the teacher training directly from Bikram. I did the training strictly for my own personal growth and discovery. I never planned on becoming a “Teacher” of the Yoga.
It wasn't long before it was revealed to me through my meditation practice that teaching would be a great way to give back to the community and I was encouraged to do it over and over again.In my mind...the only problem with this revelation was that I was NOT a natural teacher and I was very hesitant to even try. In the Fall of 2005 I was asked to teach at a new school just opening in Massachusetts...so I did. After the first class ...I knew it was the right thing to do!!
I have been teaching ever since. I have learned alot over the last 18 years and I continue to learn and grow. The Yoga will open you up to so many possibilities over a lifetime. Just stick with it!!
