Yesterday was Martin Luther King Day and it made me think about something I love very much about Bikram Yoga. MLK had the amazing ability to bring people together from all walks of life towards a common purpose of freedom and human rights. Bikram also manages to bring any and all types of people together for a common purpose.
Look at it this way. I can't even get four people at work to get together for more than 15 minutes to do anything. Yet for 90 minutes (or more!) each day, a diverse group of people get together in a hot room to improve their lives. At my studio, and I imagine most others, you'll see a huge range of people, from ages 7 to 70, different cultures, religions, backgrounds, etc. But for those 90 minutes, we are all working as one. It's a beautiful and powerful experience each and every day. Where else in society do you get such a diverse group of people to do something positive for 90 minutes every day? Any and all people are always welcome in the hot room...
