As a Child, I played the peace maker for my family and longed for there to be peace throughout the world. When I first came to Body N Brain it felt like I was coming home. For the first time I wasn't longing for peace, I was practicing it.
Since starting with Body n Brain yoga, I have seen only positive results in my physical body and my emotional health. I lost 35 #, almost eliminated a history of 30 years of hypertension (down from 4 medications to one) and have increased the flexibility of both my body and my mind, I highly recommend giving Body n Brain Beaverton a try if you strive to take charge of your own well being,

I practiced Bikram regularly for 2 1/2 years, 1 1/2 of those years was at the Hall Street studio before delivering my son. The instructors are friendly and they care about helping the students feel better and have a better yoga practice. When I first started, the heat would get to me but I soon discovered how helpful it is for the stretches and for helping my body to detox. I had been dealing with chronic back pain for nearly 20 years (since my teens) and, after six months, I’ve had little to no back pain since and no chiropractors. Bikram helps me focus better, handle stress better, breathe better and feel great and I can go at my own pace. Everyone in the room is in a different place and are able to hold certain poses better than other poses and that's respected. I did Bikram in the studio with my doctor's blessing when I was pregnant (some of the poses are modified for pregnancy) with my son well into my second trimester and then did the Bikram pregnancy yoga video at home every other day through the night before I delivered. I noticed that when I didn’t do the yoga every other day, my body would start to ache. When I practiced every other day either at home or in the studio, not only did I feel good and have an easy pregnancy at 40 years old while working full time, I didn't experience the typical pregnancy backaches, swollen ankles and feet or fatigue that I had heard and read about. In addition, it helped me through natural childbirth/water birth. Now that my son is a toddler, I am thrilled to be going back to the studio to practice. My cousin who introduced me to it five years ago had been doing Bikram off and on for ten years at the time. She has three kids and practiced at home nearly everyday after her youngest was a few years old. She wouldn't miss it because she feels so good and now that her youngest is in grade school, she goes to the studio in Boise twice a week and still practices at home most all other days as well as working part-time. Bikram yoga is one of the best ways to give back to you that there is. When I do this yoga, I feel more energized, calmer and I centered. I recently went back for the first time in many months and it was almost like I never left. It felt great and I'm so grateful for the practice. I hear over and over about people with all sorts of health issues, especially muscular and skeletal issues that they heal through a regular Bikram practice.
I came to Body and Brain yoga in very bad shape. Physically, mentally and emotionally I was completely out of balance. From my first session, I was amazed at the attentiveness and care from the instructors, as well as the way I felt after the class. Immediately my back was feeling better and my mind was clear as a bell. Since the first class, it's only gotten better. I'm completely pain free after about 7 years of cronic back pain. My headaches are gone and I can sleep though the night, which has been a lifelong struggle. I now attend 3 nights a week, and I can say it is the highlight to each day. Thank you to all the wonderful teachers! Kahm sa ham nida!!!
