Inferno Hot Pilates Teacher
The Columbia area has been my home since I was a child. As a new mom, I’m thrilled to be raising a family of my own here in our wonderful capital city. Family and fitness are true passions in my life. In the summer of 2013, I learned about hot yoga from my father-in-law. His encouragement to experience the practice of moving meditation in a hot room led me to give Bikram Yoga a try.
I have always loved fitness and working out and the hot room was something I had never experienced before. I loved it and wanted more, instantly falling in love with the dynamic total body workout. I couldn’t get enough. I completed my first hot room challenge in 2014, doing 30 classes in 60 days. The confidence I gained along with the strides I made in my yoga practice spurred me on to complete my second challenge, 30 classes in 30 days.
Once my son was born, I was determined to pass along a lifestyle of fitness to him from the very beginning of his life. This meant returning to the hot room. The introduction of Inferno Hot Pilates by Bikram Columbia was a perfect supplement to my yoga practice. After only a couple classes I was seeing results and positive changes in my figure. My excitement for this intense interval workout that combines everything I love from my Bikram practice and the heart pumping workouts of CrossFit inspired me to attend Inferno Hot Pilates Teacher Training. My completion of the training course has allowed me to take my commitment to a healthy, fit lifestyle to another level, reaching a long awaited goal of becoming a fitness instructor. I’m thrilled to share this amazing, high intensity workout with Columbia and I look forward to seeing you get stronger and stronger every day in every way!
