Scott Marin began practicing yoga with his wife, Karen, in 2005. He found yoga to be a great exercise that aligns sore joints and heals aging knees. His first Bikram yoga class was in Montreal in 2006. The class was a great workout and Scott soon found Bikram Yoga Dallas to continue practicing. Bikram Yoga Richardson became Scott’s home studio in 2007 where studio director, Yassi Maige, and the other teachers have inspired Scott to practice regularly. Yassi raised the bar by inviting Scott to attend advanced classes and by suggesting that he train for the 2010 Texas Asana Championships. Each year since, Scott has competed in the Texas competition. Scott has also had the pleasure of competing at three US National and one International championship. While yoga sport is fun and challenging, beginner’s classes are still most enjoyable.

Cathy began practicing yoga in 2005 as a smarter path to fitness and healing, and before long, it became part of who she is. Bikram Yoga North Texas (BYNT) has been her yoga home for 12 years now. Stacey Stier Herndon and the staff at BYNT have provided a yogi haven for many students over the years. The continuous challenge of the hot room, she believes, is so much like life: Just as the sun rises and sets every day, the room and the postures remain the same… our attitude and the relationships we develop, with ourselves and with others, are what will make the difference from one day to the next. She feels competition elevates this awareness even more and she has enjoyed competing at the local, national and international level. Cathy is very grateful for her yoga practice and yogi family and the way they help her stretch, strengthen, and seek balance in mind, body, and spirit.
