I want to start by saying that I love challenges! I love them because they test and push my dedication and willpower. I believe that we are always evolving and growing and want to make sure I am doing my part to make a difference to myself and others around me.
I started taking Bikram Yoga in April 2015 at BYR and was thrilled to partake in my first “30 Day Challenge” in October. I felt like after 6 months of practice, it was the perfect time to give it a go and take my practice to another level. Initially, I just thought this would be a great challenge and something fun that I could feel proud of completing but I gained so much more through meeting and getting to know so many wonderful people. Everyone that I have met at BYR (teachers and fellow yogi's) Community is lovely, inspiring, strong, kind, and possess great energy. The Community and my yoga practice have inspired me to eat better, drink more water, and live more simply. I realized that it's so easy to be happy if we want to be, so much is in our control. Aside from all the amazing love and support that I received, I could not have completed the challenge without the colorful smiley face stickers that I was awarded for each class taken! To Diana and everyone at the BYR studio, thank you for helping me to find and fall in love with yoga. It will forever be a part of my life.
