After the opening class of tranquil point studio (well done ben!) on Sunday, I chatted with some friend yogis & we got on to the topic of our bikram journey & our first ever class!
One friend started by signing up to a 60 day challenge! Subsequently he had a 4 year break before returning to the studio & is now a qualified teacher.
Another was looking for a way to renew a broken body from years of sport & is also now a teacher & has his own studio.
My sweet friend Annabelle decided to try Bikram as it fitted her challenge parametres of which she applies throughout her life – mediocrity is not an option for this girl!
I recall walking by the bikram studio & my fitness curiosity drawing me in to my first class. Lets say, I wasn’t exactly signing up for any long term contracts after my first class! It was a sporadic year later when I committed to a 30 day challenge with the goal of achieving some mental relief from a very busy work period & in the hope of making bikram a regular feature in my life – and that’s exactly what happened!
Whatever way we found bikram, the one thing we all have in common is we have all ended up at the same amazing destination & a desire to share our passion & knowledge with others.
If you are thinking of going to your first bikram class, be assured knowing that we all started the bikram journey with one class. It is then up to you how you continue your bikram journey.
