My name is Kimiko Foster, I took my first Bikram yoga class in Jan 2009 and began a regular practice the following September. For me, change happened fast. In the first four months of practice I saw dramatic changes in my body, practice, and mentality. 90 minutes inside a hot room changed how I lived my life for the other 22.5 hours of the day. I was happier, healthier, and a better
I became a teacher so I could share this experience with others. Its a hard practice, no doubt, but I feel it represents a true commitment to your health. Taking 90minutes today, for your own benefit tomorrow, thats preventative medicine baby!
It is by far the most fulfilling job on this planet! I heart bikram yoga.

Peter C Nurse
How long have you been practicing: I have been practicing yoga for 4 years, 4 months.
When and where did you do your Teacher Training: I completed my training in the summer 2008 in Acapulco.
What do you heart about the yoga: I love many things about the yoga, the first is the intensity of the class, the constant challenge. I found a way to continue rigorous training, without further injuring my body and during the course of this training, I have discovered that healing is truly possible. Bikram yoga brings people from all walks of life together into one room and for 90 minutes the rest of the world cesses to exist. The only thing that matters is yourself. You are submerged into an environment discovering the endless capabilities of the human body. You start to realize that anything is possible. These are the things I love about the yoga.
What do you heart about teaching: Teaching is an amazing experience, extremely rewarding and an amazing environment to be apart of. Watching people transform their lives in so many ways, listening to their stories of both pain and suffering, be it mental of physical, become apart of their past. Watching people contort their bodies in ways they never thought possible. WOW. Some things in life are truly meant to be experienced and this is one of them. It simple reminds me that I really do have the best job on earth. Thank you Bikram, from all of us.
