The Hiking Yogi: Bikram Yoga on the Road
Last Saturday after my Bikram yoga class at the Portland studio on Fremont, I met Michelle Renee, a Bikram yoga instructor who is making an incredible trip up the West Coast. Starting in San Diego, California, on April 11, 2011 Michelle Renee started hiking up the coast to complete an almost 1500 mile walking journey to Vancouver, B.C. Her goal is to not only to bring awareness to this practice of yoga, but also to walk the whole way, teaching and taking classes at as many Bikram yoga studios as possible. Her adventure is completely sponsored by the generosity of these studios, students, and donations from friends.
