Nicholas Jones was introduced to Bikram Yoga in 2006 by his older brother, now also a Bikram Yoga Instructor. Throughout the first year he practiced a couple times a week to supplement his other physical activities, including weight lifting, soccer, and triathlons. It became apparent quickly that there was something unique and powerful about the Bikram Yoga series. Not only did the yoga help him to overcome several injuries caused by the other activities, but Nicholas soon realized the benefits span far greater than the physical body. Nicholas increased the frequency of his practice, eventually to 7 classes a week. He graduated from the Spring 2008 Bikram Yoga Teacher Training. He hopes to serve all that are dedicated to this life changing practice, and remains enthusiastic to further unlock the unlimited potential through Bikram Yoga.
Tamara Cook began practicing Bikram Yoga in 2007, and immediately couldn’t get enough of it. From the very beginning, she felt stronger, had more endurance, and most importantly, felt more calm and peaceful every day. Tamara quickly realized that she could not live without this yoga; it brought her life the balance she had been looking for. Tamara decided to dedicate her life to practicing and teaching Bikram Yoga, and attended Teacher Training in the fall of 2008.
Julia Michaels first discovered Bikram Yoga in 2008 and immediately knew she had come across something extraordinary. Unlike the dance studios or gym classes she had spent so much time in before, the studio was filled with people of all different ages, body types and sizes! Having suffered from an eating disorder in the past, Julia relished the inclusive nature of the studio and the mind-body connection she experienced in the hot room. Bikram Yoga forced her to be mindful and present, consequently allowing her to feel alive in her own skin. After years of looking in the mirror and hating what she saw, with time Julia found herself falling in love with the strength and capacity of her own body. Having personally witnessed the transformative power of Bikram Yoga, Julia felt compelled to share it through teaching. She graduated from Teacher Training in Spring 2011 and she is excited to play witness to the physical, mental, and emotional transformations that Bikram Yoga can provide its students, staring by “locking the knee”! She will teach while continuing as a graduate student at the University of Arizona, studying School Psychology.
