    Bikram Choudhury? Who is Dave Farmar?

    Bikram hurts me… and the only studios in my area are Bikram. I love it and hate it but Im claustrophobic and just can’t do it. πŸ™

    Wish they had a power yoga studio in my area.

    Baron Baptiste! Awesome! I live right by his Cambridge, MA studio (I believe it’s his first) and, while he’s there quite often, I’ve yet to see him. Hope you are enjoying your 40 days and YEY to bringing chocolate back! Although I also loved the savory stuff…

    I hope it’s Dave Farmer! He came to my yoga teacher training out in Denver, CO, and was just the nicest guy. Really down to earth and just funny! It’s weird finally meeting someone that you spend so much time with, but never actually talk to. Have fun!

    You are a lucky girl.I wouldn’t be at all surprised if you decided to do one of his teacher training workshops one day-I hear they are amazing and they are often in beautiful spots like Hawaii!

    I absolutely love savoury recipes and actually wish was much more savoury posts
