Happy Anniversary Bikram Yoga North Texas!
Today, February 2, 2017 marks our 15 year anniversary of the opening day of our Grapevine location.
I would like to take this opportunity to tell you all THANK YOU. It’s hard to believe I was in my 30’s when I started this yoga journey back in 1999. I am now in my 50’s. Many of you began practicing with us when we first opened our doors in 2002, some of you even practiced with us BEFORE we opened our doors when we were teaching in a temporary location in Hurst in 2001. WOW!!
I don’t know that I can put into words the gratitude that I have for the students and the staff of Bikram Yoga North Texas. Y’all have been my inspiration and my teachers. Without you there would be no BYNT.
Because of you I have grown as a yoga teacher, as a business owner and most importantly as a person. Y’all make me want to be better. You are an awesome community of people and I know that to have the honor to serve you requires that I continue to evolve, to take risks, to grow, to listen, be courageous, and to be vulnerable.
I am so blessed to have y’all in my life. I am blown away by the beauty of this community – your kindness, your open-mindedness, your compassion for others, your sense of humor, your integrity, your vulnerability, your courage, your strength, your “flexibility”, your discipline, your giving spirit, and your commitment.
If the whole world mirrored this community ….well, it would be a better world indeed. To me, y’all represent what is possible. To me, y’all are the truth about humanity. We care about each other, we enjoy each other’s company, we do the best we can and we believe that everyone else is doing their best too. We take the time to take care of ourselves (body, mind and spirit) and because we accept ourselves as we are, we’re able to accept others as they are. We know that we can’t change the whole world … but we believe that by changing ourselves, our whole world changes.
I LOVE living my life in this world we’ve created together. I am honored, blessed, grateful, humbled and so incredibly proud to have this community in my life.
Thank for the best 15 years of my life. Thank you for trusting me, thank you for teaching me, thank you for supporting Bikram Yoga North Texas, thank you for being who you are to each other. Just….THANK YOU.
We WILL have a big party later this year to celebrate together and I cannot wait.
