Homeroom Client of the Month: Bikram Yoga

This month’s client of the month is Andreas Juan and Christian Betancor Leon from Bikram Yoga Commercial Drive.

Bikram Yoga consists of a series of 26 postures and two breathing exercises designed to help you realign your body. The postures are adapted from the original 84 Hatha Yoga postures and completed in a specific order that is suitable for all levels.

The studio at Commercial Drive is  heated to 104°F (40°C) to help loosen your joints and improve the elasticity of your muscles, allowing for safer and deeper stretching. It also promotes sweating, for an amazing detoxification process. On average, a Bikram Yoga class will burn 945 calories.

How many years have you been in business?

We were established in 2003 so over 10 years.

What do you enjoy the most about being a business owner?

I really enjoy being my own boss and building something greater than myself.

What motivated you to start your own business?

My desire to build a thriving community that gives back to, and benefits the neighborhood.  I also dreamed of being successful.

What advice do you have for other people who would like to start their own business?

Find something you believe in, be bold, work hard, remain patient. 

How do you achieve a work life balance?

Time = money, you can choose which one motivates you, but it will be a sacrifice of one or the other until you achieve success, even then you’ll need to decide which is relevant for your lifestyle. Find something you love.
My favorite words on this and how I try to align myself are; “
The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.” ~ James Michener

And finally who could benefit from your services?

Any living human! Bikram Yoga is an effective therapeutic yoga for all body types. Old, young, tall, thin, stiff, sore, broken, scared, worried, sad; bring it in with you, we’ll help you fix your ailments.

The most important thing about Bikram Yoga (and also the simplest thing) but the one most people neglect, is the fact that all you have to do is show up and let the yoga take care of the rest.
