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
Gentle Yoga is an all accessible class designed to meet yoga students “where they are”. The focus is on
rejuvenating and healing the body at a well-supported, slower pace.  If you are looking for an additional restorative Yin class, this is the class for you.  This class is appropriate for students with some limitations.
