Shout out to Elaine! One of the few teachers who navigates and teaches at both Beyond Bikram locations. If you have had the opportunity to take Elaine's class you already know how fun and upbeat her energy is, she finds the positive in everything. As a widowed single mother of two, Elaine graciously juggles parenting, work, and teaching like a champ. Elaine was born in November in the wine country of Northern CA, she is the oldest and has one sibling (her sister Stacey - also a Bikram teacher). Her parents are from: California and China. She went to high school in San Jose and graduated from San Jose State University with a B.S. degree in Business-Marketing and an MBA from Carlson School of Business at the University of Minnesota. Her daughters are Eliana and Yara. Elaine attended her Bikram TT: Fall 2012 when her youngest daughter was just 6 months old! She completed 100 classes in 9 weeks...YESSSS LIKE THAT!!!!! When Elaine is not in the Hot Room, you will find her traveling EVERYWHERE: Lebanon, Whistler Canada, Chicago, or San Francisco to list a few. FAVORITE POSTURE: Rabbit "Although Rabbit may seem like a simple posture, there is definitely complexity with both entering and exiting the posture. The stretch to your spine is magical, and you come out of the posture feeling refreshed and renewed!" - Elaine BEST TIP FOR STUDENTS: "There is benefit and strength in EVERY single part of a posture." - Elaine FAVORITE FOOD: Ramen...and wine BOOK TIP: Rich, colorful writings by @allendeisabel Practicing and teaching yoga is my outlet and balancing act. I've been in sales for over 20 years with the likes of big CPG companies and find my interaction with class and students completely refreshing. Having to raise two young girls on my own since 2016 due to completely unexpected events, I need to be a source of strength and inspiration for them. I strive to provide them with awesome life experiences that will enrich their tiny beings. Talk to me about anything international, travel, cuisine and arts...See you in the Hot Room and certainly virtually for now!

Today our teacher profile is highlighting Alicia, an amazing yogi to say the least; her stern, infectious spirit keeps us motivated and on point when we are in class! Alicia was born and raised in Seattle Washington, she is the middle child and has two siblings. Alicia attended her Bikram Yoga Teacher Training: Fall 2003. Before blessing us here in LA, she has taught on the East Coast in both New York and New Jersey. When Alicia is not teaching she is usually in the yoga room, at the beach, or on set filming (SAG/AFTRA). FAVORITE POSTURE: Standing Bow "It's graceful, it feels like I'm in a ballet class." - Alicia BEST TIP FOR STUDENTS: "The breath initiates the movement." - Alicia FAVORITE FOOD: 80% DARK CHOCOLATE! BOOK TIP: Ramses The Damned @annericeauthor In addition to dancing, acting, and teaching yoga, Alicia has also been interior designing privately on consignment for over 20 years. She is definitely missed, check our schedule for updates on when you can catch her virtually. "I miss everyone! Practice daily, even if it's just the breathing...when you give to yourself, it's easier to give to others." - Alicia

To our Beyond Bikram Family, We wanted to let everyone know we are doing everything in our power to keep our community safe by following CDC procedures and taking extra caution to reduce the threat of COVID-19 exposure. Did you know, all of our studios are equipped with a plasma air system that kills airborne bacteria through oxidized oxygen molecules? This means the air is 99% clear of pathogens. As always, we will continue to disinfect the studio and locker rooms throughout the day to prevent the spread of gems. We're increasing our attention to surfaces hands come in contact with, including lockers, door handles, faucets and counter tops. Effective immediately we will discontinue mat and towel rentals and remove all props (blocks, straps, weights) from the studio. We will have mats and towels for purchase at minimal cost. Please double check that you leave with all your belongs as we will suspend retention of lost and found. Continue to take care of yourself, hydrate, practice good hygiene and get plenty of rest. If you are exhibiting any symptoms of illness we ask that you refrain from visiting the studio. Our community is very important to us, we will continue to monitor the situation and make you aware of changes. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out. #selfcare #yoga #friday #yogastudio #beyondbikram #hotyoga
