I started Bikram Yoga because of a repetitive strain injury due to computer use. I was, at one time, in 24 hours of pain and not only questioning my ability to function in my career but questioning my ability to function on a day to day basis. I remember one morning that was really bad; it was extremely painful to cut a banana…with a sharp knife and it took me 5 minutes to put my shoes and socks on. When I found Bikram Yoga I immediately loved it. It was just me, no weights, no props, just me…and the heat of course. I couldn’t wait to be five years into the practice. That was at the beginning of 2004 and now I’m a teacher and competing in the yoga asana championships. I believed 100%, at one time, that I would be suffering from my injury for the rest of my life. No more. The fact is that with this yoga you can do anything.
