Bikram student shares how Hot yoga helped his shoulder injury

” So I had two rotator cuff surgeries on my right shoulder a year apart. The first one didn’t work. And so I had to have it redone. And I had practiced other forms of yoga prior to my rotator cuff surgeries and I couldn’t practice the Vinyasa Ashtanga anymore because I couldn’t do the chaturangas and I couldn’t do the planks. So a friend of mine said, “You might want to try Bikram” because it is not, you know, you don’t have to worry about your shoulder as much.

So I came and I fell in love with it and that was right before the 30-day challenge a year ago. And one of the instructor said, “You might want to try the 30-day challenge because it is a great way to jumpstart your practice” it totally transformed my life and not just my body but I am calmer, I am nicer to my family. You know, I have got my sense of humor back and my shoulder is healed through this yoga so I am really grateful for this practice. “
