Aki came to her first class in January of 2011. She came with the promise that she would burn 1,000 calories! Wow! At the time she was training for half-marathon and completing her accounting degree at the University of Waterloo. Needless to say, the idea of being in a hot room, working hard and sweating for 90 minutes sounded like just her cup of tea.
“I fell in love with Bikram yoga from the first day. I found the yoga at the exact right time in my life. On the outside I looked like I had it all. I was on a really good path in life. However, on the inside things were hard. Insert here….Bikram yoga! The 90 minute class totally turns you upside down. At times it is hard, then exhilarating, then hard again. In one moment you feel like laughing out loud, other moments like crying. My dedicated practice has taught me that no matter how hard something
may seem, it can always be overcome if you never give up, believing with your whole heart that you can get through it.”
As a teacher, she creates a safe space for all of her students. Expect to be greeted like a long lost friend. On the podium she is encouraging, motivating and intense. She offers a strong, consistent, refreshing class.
“My goal as a teacher is to empower my students. This yoga is so transformative. There is nothing more rewarding for me, than to watch my students transform and see them glow from the inside out.”
