This week, we’re highlighting another one of our teachers that we call family here at Bikram Yoga Works to chat about their experiences and why they love teaching. We’re highlighting Jonny Atkinson! Jonny typically teaches at our Ivy City studio.
How long have you been practicing Bikram Yoga?
“I’ve been practicing for about 12 years, but I started practicing full-time again about six or seven years ago.”
What’s your favorite pose?
“It changes, but right now it’s the Standing Bow Pulling pose because it’s so challenging.”
And your least favorite pose?
“Either the Eagle or Spine Twist. I can’t pick one. I can’t bend deeply enough yet, but I’m working on it.”
What do you like about teaching?
“I like the inspiration that my students give me to want to practice later. Seeing the students following the postures and improving within their own practice makes me excited to integrate it into practicing later on my own.”
What do you love about the BYW community?
“I like that it is an actual community. It’s truly a group that supports each other. We encourage each other and are there for one another.”
We love having Jonny on our team. He is such and inspiration to all of us! Be sure to check Jonny’s Daily Tips on “best practices” for your yoga poses.
