Hot VInyasa

 

Ms. Eunseong Choi
Instructor

 

My yoga journey has been one of personal growth and to find peace outside of my comfort zone.

Growing up in Korea, I wasn’t much of an athlete, to be honest. I then found yoga and took up Hatha yoga for about 5 years. In December 2009, I moved to New York and accidently stumbled into a Bikram Yoga studio. I had no idea what Bikram Yoga was; I didn’t even bring a bottle of water! I don’t know how I survived that first class, but I was definitely hooked. I did a 10-days intro, and then went straight into two 30-days challenges. I would practice 5-6 days a week, until the studio owner encouraged me to participate in the 2012 USA Yoga NY Regional Championship. I went for it and it was a truly inspiring experience, learning from great Yogis and Yoginis. Bikram Yoga had given me back my sense of strength and peace in the overwhelming rat race of a Big Apple. So it didn’t take me long to figure out that I wanted to share my experience with others too. I left my job as a paralegal, and embarked on this journey to become a Yoga Teacher in the Fall of 2012. After graduation, I got a chance to travel the world as a full time yoga instructor, teaching and learning from wonderful beings in the US, Mexico, Brazil, Kenya, the UK, Scotland, Ireland, Switzerland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Austria, Thailand, Korea, Indonesia, and the UAE.

After practicing Bikram Yoga for over 6.5 years on a daily basis, I wanted to get out of my comfort zone, and deepen my practice. So I decided to attend Jared McCann’s Vinyasa training in Brooklyn, NY, which opened my eyes to practice different yogic methods; not only asana but also pranayama, meditation, kriay, and more. Now I love to teach and practice Vinyasa on top of Bikram yoga.

Yoga practice truly benefits you, not only physically but also mentally and emotionally. I feel stronger and stronger through practice – physically and yet with a sense of calm inner peace. Yoga practice helps me find my true self, change my perspective and cope with challenging circumstances. It does change your body, mind and life.
