There's nothing easy about the 30 or 60 Day Challenge.  30/60 hot and sweaty 90 minute classes in 30/60 days is tough (we don't call it a challenge for nothing!).  At the end of it though, you have to admit it was worth it!  


Just ask any of these yogis who recently finished their challenges!

By Zonya Ojeda, Karen Logan, Ashley LeClair, and Justin Levine
They are currently at Bikram's 700 hour Teacher Training in LA! 
How has Bikram Yoga helped you? 
Zonya: I started my practice in 2001 and it was the best thing I ever did for myself. My practice is ever evolving I am always learning something new about my body and my mind. Bikram yoga has taught me patience and self awareness. I've discovered a more peaceful and spiritual life. It is my sanctuary, my safe place, and I couldn't imagine a life without my practice.  I can't wait to start teaching! I hope to pass on the knowledge I have gained from my own practice. I hope to be like the teachers I have had over the years who have made an impact on my life. 
Karen: 54 and taking the plunge, you are never too old!  I am excited to help others feel better in so many different ways as it has done for me.  I use to get huge headaches because of muscle tension in my shoulders and doing yoga melts the tension and inflammation away. Every day after I do Bikram, I walk out feeling like a new woman and I always have a better day. 


Ashley: Bikram yoga is forever my medicine. When I started Bikram yoga 1 year and 9 months ago I was lost, in pain physically, mentally almost broken, and desperately seeking for light at the end of the tunnel. I had no idea where this yoga was going to lead me too. I just knew from people I had spoken with that it was the real deal. That in time, life would end up where it should be. In the beginning I could barely make it though the class. At that time I was having chronic pain, on pharmaceuticals for a mystery medical problem which doctors couldn't solve. So, I kept attending class regularly. Reminding myself this yoga is a healing yoga. Each and every class I would gain more confidence, more awareness both body and mind. I was able to keep a positive attitude when most people would want to quit. I finally did quit, Rx drugs that is. And I took my healing and recovery in my own hands not the hands of medical doctors. I let the Bikram yoga do the work! Five straight weeks I detoxed from pharmaceuticals. I then was able go deeper in my practice and complete a 30 day challenge. I was seeing improvement and results. I still did have pain but I believe the yoga was not allowing it to get worse.   Right after the challenge, I found out I had bone on bone in my TMJ joint and I need surgery. I did have surgery, in which the surgeon found my jaw was broken, shattered and needed to be partially removed. Of course I wasn't able to do the yoga while in recovery, but mentally I was using what it taught me. Breathe, be present, patient and persistent.
Now that I am recovered and feeling great, I have never felt more need to teach, to share with others everything Bikram means to me and does for me.  The ability to help those achieve their Bikram practice and get through that hard patches life throws at us. Becoming a Bikram teacher and having the first hand experience and knowledge to help those who suffer with pain, or what ever the issue might be would be the utmost honor and privilege. I had always wanted to be a teacher since the first day I walked into the classroom and heard the crazy alien breathing. But I knew I must first take care of myself before I could care for the Bikram community. Also to have a job that I love and love being at, would be fulfilling.


Justin: I would say first and foremost, how hasn't it helped me...this yoga has helped me in every facet of my life: self image, human relationships, confidence, and work ethic. The bottom line is it has seeped into everything I do and am and changed me for the better. Most importantly it has taught me that change is possible everyday, and that change is constant and we should not fear it, this yoga has given me everything I never knew I needed. It's the single best thing I have ever done for myself.  

I would love to teach because honestly the last time I loved something this much it was skateboarding; I did it most my life up until I was about 16. I was sponsored and all of the sudden it was taken from me, I never thought I could feel that passionate about something again until I walked into your studio 6 years ago. Bikram Yoga is more than just something I do for 90 minutes a day; I want to encompass it into my life.
