“There’s really no completion with my Bikram Yoga. I’m always working my postures – tweaking them here, pushing a bit there. The way I see it, I have a lifetime to get them all right.”
We’re pleased to announced that Bikram Yoga Temecula has chosen Evelyn Murphy, age 65- going on 25, as our first candidate for BYT Student of the Month. Evelyn has been practicing at Bikram Yoga Temecula since the second day we opened, December 18th 2012, and has logged a total of, get this, 313 times totaling 470 hours in our hot room! You may recognize Evelyn by her friendly demeanor throughout the studio, or determination to make even the smallest of corrections to improve her practice.
A practicing Bikram yogini for the past 17 years, she doesn’t plan to stop anytime in the near future. Originally from Boston, Evelyn was introduced to Bikram Yoga by one of her daughters and after experiencing her first 90 minutes she felt she may have found a way to extend her lifelong passion of competitive horseback riding. Evelyn has found that the discipline, tenacity, and strength required in the Bikram hot room aids greatly improving the skills required for her local and regional competitions. Between her equestrian competitions, full time work, and managing her avocado orchard, she still finds time to practice yoga 4-5 times per week.
Congratulations to Evelyn!
