"I started Bikram three and a half years ago and it has changed my life. Now that I'm in my 50's, I had no idea before hot yoga how 'afraid and tentative' I was of my knees, walking, stooping, bending, etc. Bikram has taken almost ALL of that away. I feel more confident in my skin, able to stand for longer periods of time, walk a desired pace and keep it up. There's just been so many benefits to all of this. Also, as a licensed massage therapist, I have absolutely NO doubt that Bikram has slapped at least 5-8 years onto the longevity of my very physical massage practice. I remain grateful."
