Bikram Yoga Teacher
I did Bikram yoga for the first time in January 2012 while visiting Lacy Carbone in Jacksonville, FL. When I left the class I thought everyone in there was insane & Bikram yoga was not for me. The next morning, I woke up feeling sore in muscles I didn’t even know existed. I couldn’t believe how much my body was affected, so I started doing research on the yoga. The more I researched, the more challenged I felt to return. I had always suffered from scoliosis & thought Bikram yoga might finally be the solution to my problems. I began practicing a lot at my home studio, Bikram Yoga Charleston & then went to work for Lacy as Studio Manager once she opened Bikram Columbia in 2012. My posture improved drastically and my back pain disappeared. With a lot of encouragement from Lacy, I finally decided to go to Teacher Training. I attended Teacher Training in the Spring of 2013. It was the hardest & most amazing experience of my life. I made some amazing friends & learned so much about myself. I am now happily married with a baby girl named Luna. I practiced Bikram Yoga my entire pregnancy up until the week before I delivered and I believe it aided in a smooth delivery. I can't wait to introduce my daughter to yoga one day! Bikram yoga has changed my life in so many positive ways & I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share it with others!
