Bikram Yoga 90 Min

This class is taught by:

Heidi Syvrud

I started practicing Bikram yoga in March 2001 and loved it from the beginning. I felt the benefits immediately. I found it challenging and very rewarding and that I just felt balanced and energized when I practiced it. I also noticed my body transform and my skin just glowed. I felt good from the inside out. I loved what the yoga had given me: strength, stamina, confidence and basically an “I can do anything I set my mind to” attitude. The same way I felt after I went through Basic Training for the military. I wanted to learn more about the series and share it with others after I finished a three year stateside mobilization for the Army Reserves that ended in March 2007.

I attended Bikram yoga teacher training in April 2007 in Hawaii on Waikiki. Nine weeks of yoga twice a day and learning more about the benefits of the yoga and learning to teach and share it with others sounded heavenly to me after my mobilization. I have been teaching and sharing the yoga ever since. I teach and share the yoga because I love to see the transformation the yoga brings to people physically and emotionally and to be part of those changes is truly inspiring and fulfilling. I retired from the Army Reserves in March 2010 after 22 years of service just three years after becoming a Certified Bikram Yoga Teacher. I love what yoga has given me. I feel a sense of accomplishment and peacefulness that no one can take away from me after I practice. I am constantly reminded by the yoga how amazing the human body really is.

Lorenzo Powell

Lorenzo started practicing Bikram yoga, in 2009, after an Achilles injury. He found a true love in this style of yoga, and has seen the benefits, both physically and mentally. He loved it so much, he decided to take it further, and completed the teacher training in 2015, and has been teaching in the Seattle area ever since. He also guest teaches in Phoenix, AZ, when he goes down to visit his two brothers that live there. In fact, one of his favorite parts of this journey, has been the ability to visit other Bikram style studios while traveling, and guest teach. Lorenzo loves the energy in the classroom, and appreciates his students’ dedication and feedback. When not in the hot room, Lorenzo is an Optician at Urban Optix in South Lake Union.
