bikram yoga - 60 minutes


This class is taught by:

Richard Pike

It was just another Tuesday in June 2003 when my friend John Sikorjak (thank you, John) suggested I join him for a Bikram Yoga class. I said sure, why not, how hard could it be to do yoga? My first class- I was a train wreck. Not supposed to leave the room – I left the room. Water? Spent most of the time pouring it on my head. Standing Head to Knee – could not reach my foot. Fixed Firm – no, don't think so. Triangle Pose – fugetaboutit. Thanks to a patient and loving certified Bikram Yoga teacher, somehow I made it through the class.
I went home, poured myself into bed, and thanked God for allowing me to survive. I woke up the next morning and it was like a miracle – my knees felt better than they had since high school. My back felt better. And, I felt 3 inches taller. So, I went back...and went back...and went back. Seven years later and 35 pounds lighter, I realized I needed to share this wonderful yoga as much as I possibly could. So, I trekked off to San Diego in the Fall 2010 and immersed myself in Bikram's rigorous nine-week Teacher Training. I came back from that and I was fortunate to be mentored by Jane Kartsch, the owner of Bikram Yoga Yorktown Heights and Bikram Yoga Bronx.
Now I look forward to meeting you and sharing this life changing yoga as we sweat and stretch and transform our bodies, minds, and spirits.

I started Bikram Yoga in 2008. My parents had been practicing for a few years and finally got me to come take a class, and I hated it. I was a gymnast and a cheerleader so I assumed it was going to be easy, it was not. I continued to go when I was forced to and as much as I didn't want to go, I always felt great after. Whenever I was stressed or having a bad day I would go take a class and had a place where I didn't have to think about anything else. My dad went to teacher training in 2010 and we all thought he was crazy. Then after many years of contemplating, I finally went to teacher training in Fall of 2015 in Thailand! It has definitely been a journey and I now look forward to helping others with their journey.
