During an interview with Halifax magazine, Kristin Johnston, owner of Bikram Yoga Halifax, stressed the value of her yoga studio's lounge as a discussion space. "It's so important that people talk about their experiences in the hot room,? she said, adding that, ?We all struggle with something in that room and it is essential to have a space where people feel comfortable in sharing their experiences.?
The lounge helps people do just that. It?s a place where beginners and returning yogis alike gather around a two-sided fireplace to mingle after a stress-relieving 60 or 90-minute class.
During these classes, vetted instructors lead clients through full-body series, designed to target every muscle, organ, joint, ligament and system in the body, building strength and flexibility. Classes aim to improve posture, flexibility, concentration, and mental outlook. Johnston adamantly asserts that students will see their body change after 30 days, with a pronounced effect on their life after 60.
