The Amazing Staff and Teachers of Bikram Yoga Rancho Cucamonga
My name is Tammara and my love affair with Bikram yoga started when I completed my 90-day challenge. I completed teacher training in Spring 2013 and worked as part of Bikram's staff. Years later, I am still committed (pretty much radical) about my yoga, and I literally schedule my life around the practice. Off the mat, I have been teaching middle school for 18 years now, and I believe I have become stronger, happier and healthlier in my 40s now than I was in my 20s. While the physical benefits of Bikram to me have been great, I am convinced that the mental, emotional and spiritual effects of Bikram Yoga have been more inspiring. I feel extremely blessed and honored to be a part of the healing space that has been created at BYRC and witness the power of the 26 and 2 working in the students, as their light shines within the hot room and in their lives on this empowering journey to self-realization.
Greg is the owner of Bikram Yoga Rancho Cucamonga. Greg attended Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in Spring 2009 in Palm Desert. "I can still remember my first class and how hot it was. I just couldn't understand how so many people were moving so effortlessly in that heat. After class I felt like a new person, had a new energy, and knew my life would be changed forever. It was at that time in my life I made a promise that I would somehow figure out a way that I could share this gift with as many people as I could reach". I hope Bikram Yoga has the same positive influence in your life that it has had on mine.
I know first hand the powerful transformation of this yoga. Before starting my practice I was tipping the scale at 300lbs. I dropped to my lowest 180 lbs practicing this amazing yoga. I started practicing Bikram in 2008. It was hard, hot and extremely challenging, I loved every minute of the "90 min torture chamber", is what the teachers use to call it. I was so moved by the changes I’ve made mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually I decided to do the teacher training in spring 2011. I have taught Bikram Yoga ever since and have taught all over Southern California this wonderful yoga!
My name is Chae and love brought me to Bikram Yoga! Loving myself and given the opportunity to have a longer, healthier life, and being in a state of mental clarity is why I continued to pursue the journey of Bikram Yoga. The 26&2 series has laid the foundation and I'm so excited to share the experience with you.
Sharon has been practicing Bikram yoga since 2001 when she accidentally stumbled into her first yoga class in West Seattle. Sharon attended training in Las Vegas and received her certification in 2009. "Discovering the practice was an eye opening experience and over time has given me a clearer understanding of my mind and body. Practicing on a regular basis helps me balance the daily stresses we all experience with work and at home. It is also a vital part of my natural coping mechanism during physically demanding times like pregnancy and labor. Bikram yoga has become my reset button, enabling me to clear my thoughts and give more of myself when I leave the hot room. It has been a true pleasure helping others navigate their own personal yoga experience."
On April 13th, 2015, my yoga journey began when I stepped on the mat at BYRC. I literally fell in love with this yoga right away, and never stopped practicing since then. Always thinking, “someday I wanna be a yoga instructor." When the owner of BYRC announced their first teacher training, I immediately made up my mind to take the next step. The first day of the teacher training was on April 13th, 2018 my 3 year Bikram Yoga anniversary! At that point I knew it was meant to be. This yoga has healed me mentally and spiritually. Now it’s my turn to serve others, as I continue my journey of self realization.
