One yoga that I talk about in my book SONIA’S RING: 11 WAYS TO HEAL YOUR HEART, www.soniasring.com is Bikram. It can save your life and soul. You may be saying, what is Bikram? And if you know what it is, you may already agree and love it!! So I am going to share what it is because for me, it is one of the greatest meditations and exercises in the world and is available globally. Through this hot yoga, you can discover answers within.
Bikram Choudhury is the founder of a signature program that includes 26 postures and two breathing exercises. He comes from the school of thought that the ultimate life journey is happiness though self-realization. His teacher and guru was Bishnu Charan Ghosh, the youngest brother of Paramhansa Yogananda who wrote, Autobiograohy of a Yogi. Bikram reiterates in his book, Bikram Yoga: The Guru Behind Hot Yoga Shows the Way to Radiant Health and Personal Fulfillment, “Yoga is not a diet, nor a religion.” I share this with you, not because you need to do this particular practice, but to tell you what works for me. Each time I practice, I can feel my body and soul recharging. I also feel as if I am polishing the light within.
My teachers have been marvelous and it has been a blessing. The beautiful Karen Drost, owner and founder of Bikram Yoga of the Palm Beaches is a gift from God!! All of the teachers including the magnificent Missy, smiley happy Kim, joyful Joyce, dazzling David, awesome Adriana, and the spectacular Setareh, among several others each have their unique and wonderful style to motivate and inspire each class to be the best!
Worthy to note, Setareh has created a pleasant space called the Conscious Café where she will prepare for you as an amazing treat one of her fabulous juices of mango, pineapple, and mint or healthy organic salads or delightful homemade dishes made only for those who participate in classes.
