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

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.

Corn Dropik

Hailing from Brew City my first memories were that of music. The moment I discovered guitar I became obsessed. My life was forever changed when my grandfather gifted me my first guitar for my sixth Christmas. By the time I reached adolescence I had been playing festivals, clubs and parties during weekend and summer breaks. At the insistence of a dear childhood friend I left my studies at the university to pursue music. Up to this point my main interest in yoga was mostly breathing and meditation. After years of working in Sin City a friend introduced me to hot yoga. I can’t honestly say that class changed my life but I liked it enough to keep at it. After a few classes I noticed that I could sleep deeply all night, something I hadn’t been able to do since i was a child. Weeks later the physical changes came in the form of weight loss and flexibility. Months later my personal relationships and career had seen incredible improvements. By this point I realized I had found something special in this particular yoga and needed to learn more. My early teachers encouraged me to train with the creator of the original hot yoga. This marked a turning point for me and yoga.
I was fortunate to begin teaching during a time when a lot of great teachers from the community were mentoring those just starting. The first three years were spent under the mentorship of sources ranging from those with over twenty years experience teaching, to yoga asana competitors/champions. During this time I was given the tools in which I use to grow. Always a student I’ve attended dozens of workshops, clinics, and trainings not only in yoga therapy but also alignment and teaching techniques. As I've traveled and taught I have been part of opening and managing various studios. Before long I had the opportunity to offer what I have learned in the form of workshops, clinics, and private instruction to not only the typical yoga student but all walks of life. I’ve personally taught thousands of classes to thousands of people and have witnessed the benefits of a regular yoga practice. To practice and share this method of yoga has been an amazing experience and a lifelong goal!

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.

Melissa Domingo

I grew up in New Jersey, and moved west when I turned 25. In 2009, while living in the chaos of Las Vegas, I discovered my yoga practice. I was immediately drawn to Bikram yoga. The discipline of the practice was intriguing, and it was exactly what I needed to create health and well being, both physically and mentally. I knew I had found something that was going to change the rest of my life. I went to Bikrams teacher training In 2010. My new career as a yoga teacher took me to Northern California. In 2015 I received my yin yoga certificate, which helped me deepen my practice and balance my yang lifestyle. 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 also teach and practice intermediate hatha yoga from the Ghosh lineage. 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.

Paul Weinrauch


Paul took his first Bikram yoga class in August 2013 and instantly fell in love with the practice. After decades of sports, weight training, and running, he was looking for an alternative workout. Not only did he find a physically demanding workout, but was astonished at the growth mentally and emotionally in his personal and professional life. Paul graduated as a yoga instructor in June 2015 and has been teaching ever since. In September 2015, he took his first Inferno Hot Pilates class at the urging of Kathryn, began teacher training a few days later, and was teaching the class the very next month. He was thoroughly impressed with the cardio, strength, and core training received from a one hour class using only your own body weight.

Paul is married to his beautiful wife Danielle and has two amazing stepdaughters, Teya and Melanie. When he is not working as a professional medical rep, teaching or practicing yoga, he loves to snowboard and travel.

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.
