How have you changed?

How have you changed since starting to practice Bikram yoga?

Next time you are standing on your mat, feet together neatly. Think about it. Just for a second. And prepare to be amazed.

Try this little exercise. Think of a noun, any noun. Now, use that noun to fill in the blank below:

Bikram yoga is transforming my _______.

Is your particular statement true? You Betcha! Even if it’s ridiculous, it’s still true.

I thought I understood how radically Bikram yoga had transformed my body, my mind, my life, my marriage. And I was thrilled with the changes. We all were. I thought the good stuff had mostly already happened.

Then I decided to open Bikram Yoga Chadds Ford.

KAZAM! I get to start all over again. Beginner’s Mind, Beginner’s Way.

What’s the best part? You get a fresh start, a new beginning, too.

The studio hasn’t even opened its doors. Already it is a gift–from the universe to me, from me to my teachers. From all of us, to all of you, our future practitioners. I’m so glad we get to enjoy this particular gift together.

Feet together neatly on the line, start, please!

Welcome home…

Come and stay a while

Your home studio is not just where you practice. It truly becomes your home.

The place you come on good days, bad days and all the in-between days. It’s where everybody knows your name. Where you can let it (almost) all hang out. You, being you. You, taking care of you.

Planning your new home studio is keeping me up at nights–in a good way. The studio will have two state-of-the-art hot rooms, ample changing areas and—drum roll, please–showers.  Bikram Yoga Chadds Ford is easily and quickly accessible from Route 202, whether you are traveling North or South. Parking is ample and free.

Most exciting, though, is the living space we have planned. A large dining table, where you’ll be able to drink a cup of coffee and settle in for conversation with your yoga buddies. Maybe even a monthly Bikram brunch. A big comfy couch. A free lending library.

Thank you  ALL for being my yoga family. I can hardly wait to welcome you to our new home. Please visit soon.
