Hello Aptos!

I am so very excited to introduce myself to the community! I have been dreaming of opening a Bikram Yoga studio in Aptos for well over a decade. My journey began 11 years ago when I attended my first Bikram Yoga class. As a competitive long distance runner and Pilates instructor I was very intrigued by this hot yoga that everyone talked about.. how hard can it be I thought??.. I decided to run 6 miles to the studio meet my friend and give it a try.. I was drenched in sweat in the first breathing excercise..heart pounding…of yeah I was completely in love! I knew from that first class that I would do Bikram yoga for the rest of my life! Here I am 11 years later.

In the spring of 2009 I was able to attend the nine week Bikram Yoga teacher training in Palm Desert California with just a few challenges..my 3 year old daughter came along for the ride.!  9 weeks of twice daily yoga class, dialog clinics, anatomy, endless hours of lectures and bollywood movie torture sessions equated to a boot camp style change your life cleansing experience with absolutely no sleep!! In those 9 weeks I was reminded of the limitless power of our human bodies and minds. With a positive mental attitude we truly are capable of achieving anything we desire.. we just need to believe! I have never for one single moment doubted that Bikram Yoga Aptos would become a reality. We will be opening as soon as July and Wow!!  Top notch instruction, pure Dialog driven Bikram yoga, World class heat system, air purification and filtration, the finest eco friendly antibacterial yoga flooring, 7  private showers, 5 bathrooms, large comfortable lounge for chilling with your yoga friends, plenty of on site free parking, easy freeway access and most importantly pure Bikram Yoga!!Oh yes Aptos this is going to be amazing! In the next few weeks I will be posting the schedule and opening details..stay tuned. I am so excited to share my dream of Bikram Yoga Aptos with you.. come Change your Body..Change your Life!!

Namaste,

Nicole Duke
