My first experience in Yoga comes after 15 years of entrepreneurship in Canada. I went to a Bikram Yoga class with a discovery intention and ended up emotionally attached to the practice. The effect might be due to the 1h30 of heat in 6 months freezing city, however, I am deeply convinced that the real reason behind this connection is the similarities between the Bikram essence and the entrepreneurial spirit. The intensity and effectiveness of the Bikram class has the magical effect of washing out the brain and cleansing the heart; it is draining and energizing at the same time.

Following two years of intense practice, I gave way to the temptation of undergoing a rigorous training to be able to teach and open a yoga studio.
