<–For Jessica Gardner being in a 105 degree room is nothing unusual. She is a Bikram yoga instructor and owner of Bikram Yoga Voorhees. Gardner’s studio is only a year old but she’s been practicing this type of yoga for nearly 11 years. 

 Danielle Villa is, however, a beginner in this type of yoga. She went to her first class yesterday at Bikram Yoga  Voorhees on 4/12/11.–>




Hear what a  professional and beginner have to say about Bikram yoga. 

(Villa didn’t realize I was recording and jumped in. It was funny so I thought I’d interview her as well.)


My experience:

Jessica Gardner was very willing to accommodate me as a beginner. Everyone was very welcoming. The temperature was a little hard to get used to at first and I don’t believe I have ever sweated that much in my life, but it felt amazing. You do each posture twice, and there’s 26 of them. The second time doing the poses I found that I could get into it a little easier, and stretch a little further. I left covered in sweat but refreshed. I felt like I had sweated away all of my worry and stress and felt like a new person. I will definitely be going back soon.
