Student of the Month
Adam Loeffler – age 33
How long have you been practicing Bikram Yoga?
What brought you to Bikram Yoga?
Destiny I think… I have 30% disability from the military for back injuries. I saw a video on Facebook about a military parachute jumper who damaged his knees and back severely from jumping out of airplanes and had not been able to walk for 14 years. He started yoga and after eight months he was able to not only walk but also RUN! I was inspired and immediately called the most recommended studio I could find in town.
What have been your greatest benefits from your Bikram Yoga practice?
Bikram Yoga is amazingly targeted for back and posture issues that I unfortunately have. Bikram Yoga has allowed me to regain confidence that I can fix my back after having lost hope.
What has been your toughest challenge?
The toughest part about yoga class has probably been dealing with the heat and the sweat dripping in my ears and eyes haha.
What is your favorite posture/least favorite?
I have many favorites and many that are the opposite of favorites. Toe Stand is probably my favorite and my least favorite is probably Standing Head to Knee Pose.
Any encouraging words to new students?
No matter how much you sweat and no matter how hard Yoga can seem at times, it WILL get better. All you have to do is keep coming.
I want to thank Beatrice, Donna and all the other instructors that have been there and provide an amazing service for those in need.
