I began the Bikram method practice in 2001, mostly with the intention of countering a running practice with some stretching. Little did I know that long after my running career ended the practice would become a tool to counter appendicitis, meth addiction, depression and anxiety.
For folks willing to explore beyond the physical benefits of asana practice there is a world of emotional and spiritual benefits available through this 90 minute moving meditation.
In the words of senior teacher Emmy Cleaves, “As human beings, we are slaves to our habits. Practice the good ones.”
