Bikram Yoga Richardson - Featured Business

When I tell people that Bikram Yoga has changed my life, I get a lot of surprised looks.  Seems a little crazy on the surface, I know.  But, let me explain.

I had tried other forms of yoga prior to Bikram and while I met some wonderful people and I enjoyed the classes, the other forms of yoga did not help me as much as Bikram Yoga does. Bikram Yoga is a 90-minute class in a hot room (105°F, at 40% humidity).  Before you say, "But, I hate to sweat!", hear me out.  I hated to sweat, too, and hated to feel hot. It didn't take me long to discover suffering a little is well worth the payoff. And you do get used to the heat.

I started practicing after I bought a Living Social coupon for a 30-day membership. That was 3 years ago. I still practice regularly. In fact, instead of blogging, I should be getting a shower since I just got back from yoga practice.  Bikram Yoga  has helped me learn to quiet my mind, has increased my flexibility, has increased my endurance, has improved my mental focus, has helped me maintain my weight, and has given me more patience.  Plus, I hardly ever get sick. I could keep going, but you get the picture.  The benefits are mental as well as physical.

Because of all this, featuring Bikram Yoga Richardson is an obvious choice for my first Featured Business post.
