I fell in love with this crazy hot personal torture chamber we call Bikram yoga in 2005! After just one class my soul was hooked! I went to Bikram teacher training in 2006 having the time of my life at training in Los Angeles/Studio City! I completed my teacher internship in Austin Texas under Mardy Chen! I have 3 amazing yoga children whom will make this world a better place! I look forward to waking up Baton Rouge and sharing my passion for this life changing and life saving Bikram Yoga!
