Calling: All Beings Are Unconditionally Loved With Compassion
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.

Calling: All beings are at peace
Hi my name is Seth! My yoga journey began in 2007 at the suggestion of a friend and teacher, who later on became a mentor of mine. At the time I was working in the trades as a welder and metal fabricator, and having always had a disposition towards rigorous exercise routines I had heard about the Bikram experience and was eager to give it a try. I finally made it to my first class on my own, however I don’t recall much of it, all that I know is that I was smiling the whole time, simultaneously feeling a sense of shame at how uncoordinated I was. After a few weeks of regular practice I noticed the difference the Bikram practice made in not only my balance and coordination, but also in my focus and discipline which carried into other areas of my life. For years my practice ebbed and flowed, although it was always apparent whenever I felt out of sorts, it was usually because I hadn’t practiced for a long time. In September 2013 I underwent a 3rd brain surgery to remove a cyst near the base of my spinal cord; the cyst a result of a tumor fused with the brain stem. The first thought that came into my mind after waking up from that operation was of course “yoga”! But more than as a student, I wanted to become a teacher, and almost a year to the date I began my Bikram training in the fall of 2014. Since then I’ve been able to travel the world teaching in several other countries and major cities in the United States. I am very grateful to have the opportunity and experience of teaching yoga, as it has sustained my own life. It is my objective as a teacher to give this experience of self-realization to all my students.
See you in the hot room!

Christina Monahan

Christina, teacher. 
Calling: All beings are playful and free
Christina completed her 200 hour Classic 26 teacher training from Be Yoga Burien with Nina Granatir and Audrey Benton in 2017. Christina initially turned to yoga as a form of rehabilitation after surgery in
2016, and quickly fell in love with the freedom and adaptability of the practice. Yoga helped her regain the strength and confidence that had been lost after her surgery, and Christina credits her yoga practice as instrumental in helping her run her first full marathon in June 2017. Yoga has transformed her life, bringing her a sense of peace, connection, and acceptance that remains with her long after she has left the hot room. Christina looks forward to furthering her knowledge and always being a student of yoga. She hopes to share positive energy and all that she loves about yoga with her students and community at BYB.
