I found yoga last year, due to being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. They offered bikram yoga but just didn't know if I wanted to do it. After hearing everyone rave about it, I finally did it! What was I waiting for?!! It was amazing and now I go every week!!!! I love it!

Never take the elevator always take the stairs!!!

Just keep swimming, just keep swimming!!


You CAN do anything for minute!!!

I love Bikram yoga as well. I also love doing it after I run in the summer months. I don't feel sore and my body feels strong.

Yoga is a part of keeping the weight off, but so was the psychological therapy I was doing at the time. The weight had an emotional basis and as I resolved the issues that I thought the weight was protecting me from I was able to lose it.
Keeping it off is keeping to the healthy lifestyle I worked to develop, eating 3 healthy meals a day, usually a couple of snacks, keeping track of my food and exercise on the Spark trackers. The yoga has helped to maintain the loss as I have deepened and developed my practice. I practice with a teacher 2-3 days a week and practice at home 2-3 days a week. I have also added some meditation time.

Lost 65 lbs and maintained since 2006.

I must admit I love the feeling of the clensing sweat of a Bikram session, but luckily, I get almost a sweaty without the heat doing my Adamantine sequence.

I've done my Bikram Yoga for the whole year and I love every second of it. Than I stop doing it for a 7 months. Now I'm back again and I'm so so happy to doing that.
