Bikram Yoga Charlottesville
Bikram Yoga Instructor Lizzie Clark began practicing Bikram Yoga in the fall of 1999 while working in Washington, D.C. At first the practice was an escape from the stresses of work and the pain from injuries incurred during a collegiate soccer career and long distance running. After a year or so of Bikram Yoga, she started running less and focused more on Bikram Yoga. In the fall of 2001, she began asking herself why she was working in a world that so poorly fit into her dreams and aspirations. Bikram Yoga helped her see the potential for happiness in her life. She felt an intense motivation to go to Bikram Yoga training in the spring of 2003, to move to beautiful Charlottesville, Virginia, and to open Bikram Yoga Charlottesville on January 27, 2004.
Yoga has offered Lizzie relief from the ritual pounding of joints that marathon running and years of soccer had brought on. It helps her to be a more patient mother, loving wife and friend. She is grateful to have the opportunity to be able to lead others through the series that inspired her to change her life for the better.
