Melissa Domingo

I grew up in northern New Jersey, and moved west when I turned 25. My first stop was Las Vegas, I resided there for 5 years, and this is where I first discovered my yoga practice in 2009. It makes so much sense, being that I worked in the toxic environment of the casino industry. My first organized yoga class experience was the Bikram method. Not too long after I went to Bikrams teacher training in 2010. I decided to quit my full time job as a card dealer and further pursue my yoga career, so I moved to the Northern California area, where being able to teach full time was an option. A few years later I discovered my yin practice, and that took it to another level, I was able to balance my yang lifestyle and practice with a more restorative yin approach. I received my yin certificate in 2015. As I became more and more aware of this balanced lifestyle, this led me to Ayurveda. I am currently enrolled in the California College of Ayurveda. I feel so blessed to have access to all of this knowledge, and I look forward to being able to share, discuss, and teach this information along the way.
I also have created another hobby on the side, which is slowly turning into a small business. I love working with wire and stones/crystals. I turn them into jewelry. Serpent Coils was created just this past year, and I am excited to share that with the public as well.
So if I'm not in the yoga room, you'll probably find me hiking to a spot near a river where I am able to sit alongside and create my jewelry.

Ripsi Dzheve

I have to start by saying OMG!
I remember my first BIKRAM class. I arrived early and found myself reading teacher bios on the walls of my then studio in Las Vegas. Now I am actually writing one on myself. So here it goes!
My name is Ripsi. I am American Armenian, and started my practice in 2009.
I have an older sister, younger brother and my most amazing parents George and Mariam.
All my life growing up, I looked up to my younger brother. He played hockey from the tender age of 3. I always wanted to have a sport I felt as passionate about as he did with hockey, But as I got older this idea became harder to reach.
Rewind to 2008 his then hockey coach, Pokey Reddick former Stanley Cup champion of the Edmonton Oilers, made the entire hockey team go for some yoga. While the boys thought they were going to a type of dance class, coach Reddick knew different.
In 2009 I overheard my brother talking about one of the hardest and most rewarding exercise he had done was called Bikram Yoga. I thought YOGA?! I've heard about it. I asked my brother about it, he told me I had to try it. Secretly I know he did this to bust my chops, but surprise to him and myself, first class in I was hooked!
This yoga is everything I've ever wanted to do physically. For a very long time I viewed this yoga as my sport. Something my brother and I have in common. Locker room talk, pains, gains, losses. To this day we still talk about where we are in our practice.
In 2014 I went to teacher training in Los Angeles. Best chance I have ever taken on myself, I get to share my love and passion for this practice with beautiful people from all over the world and I couldn't imagine doing anything else with my days at this point in my life.

Thank you for reading ❤

Kevin Mendez

I took my first Bikram yoga class in August 2012. I was not exactly hooked on it. It was hot, it was humid. By the time the class was on the floor, I was looking toward the door. I wasn't sure if it was me. I had no idea what I was walking into, did no studying. I did no research. I took my second class the very next next day. It was on the advice of the teachers, and it wasn't any better than the first. It took about ten classes or so to see and feel the benefits.

I am a carpet cleaner by trade and have had multiple back and repetitive motion issues. This practice has saved my back, my job, and it gave me freedom of movement. So I found myself practicing 6 to 7 days a week. I was hooked!(and still am). I completed my RYS 200 Yoga Alliance teacher training in 2015. To see positive change and growth in myself and others is a beautiful thing.

Kathryn Body

I took my first Bikram yoga class in San Carlos, CA in 1996.
I was hooked from the very first class. I found the practice enjoyable and very challenging. I continued to practice through my first pregnancy in 1998. The breathing exercises helped me through both of my high risk pregnancies.
I worked as a textile designer in San Francisco and the surrounding areas for many years. As a busy working mom, I continued to make time for my practice, commuting in the early hours to San Francisco for yoga, then work. The yoga practice has benefitted me tremendously over the years, allowing me to stay calm in stressful situations. Physically I have enjoyed good health as a result.

At the age of 22yrs, I was told by my then arthroscopic surgeon that I would not be able to resume my usual physical activities as a result of a broken patella, with loss of all cartilage in my right knee resulting from a car accident. What I consider one of my “wake up calls”. Through dedication to my yoga practice I was pleasantly surprised to find I had strengthened the muscles around my knee and would no longer need to have knee replacement surgery.

When you hear the instructors say “Lock the knee” embrace it, trust it, do it!
I have received so much from this practice that in Spring of 2006 I decided it was time to give back. I have been teaching Bikram yoga ever since and have found even more joy and passion through the sharing of this amazing yoga practice with others.

Laurel Hanson

Laurel has been a Bikram Yoga practitioner for over 7 years.  She was first drawn to the practice because of job stress and stress-related injuries, like neck strain, migraines, and insomnia.  With a regular practice she found lasting relief from such issues along with renewed energy.
After being laid off in the economic downturn she took some time off from yoga and began her new journey, Women's flat Track Roller Derby.  After participating in a full-contact sport it didn't take long for her to see the benefits a Bikram Yoga practice could provide.  Not only did a regular Bikram practice alleviate pain and muscle fatigue but, after a few months of consistent practice, gave her an athletic edge her teammates could easily notice.  Better flexibility, more endurance, mental focus and clarity, balance, and muscle control made her a stronger more agile skater and took her to the next level.  "At first the other girls called me crazy for going to Bikram then coming to practice.  After a few months however, they were always asking 'What's that yoga you're doing?"
She completed teacher training in January of 2015 and is more dedicated than ever to spreading knowledge of the power of a strong practice.  "Yoga helps with every facet of life, whether you struggle with depression, mood, lethargy, chronic pain, or are an athlete looking to up your game, yoga is the answer."  - Laurel
This is a Bikram method class which consists of a challenging series of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises, suitable for all ages and all levels of ability. Each posture stretches, strengthens, and prepares specific muscles, ligaments, and joints needed for the next posture. This yoga class also stimulates organs, glands, and nerves, moving fresh oxygenated blood to 100% of the body, restoring all systems to a healthy working order. Bikam Choudhury scientifically designed this 90 minute program to deliver total health through the balancing and
strengthening of every system in the body. To prevent illness and injury, promote weight loss and limit the effects of aging. This series of postures also improves concentration, patience, determination, and self-control to
increase mental clarity and reduce stress. This yoga class is done in a heated room to warm your muscles, prevent injury, allow a deeper workout and cleanse the body by flushing toxins.
