Osteoarthritis of Hips & Lower Back
I came down with Osteoarthritis of the hips and low back at the age of 37 after 25 years of surfing almost every day.

I have been doing Bikram about 2 years. I had major knee trouble before I started. It removed any health problems I had before. It’s an amazing exercise and will be getting my teacher training in April. I can't wait!

The yoga itself is sound. It's deep; it's authentic; it heals; it transforms.
