How long have you been a couple?  And how long have you shared BYW practice?

Jake and I have been practicing Bikram Yoga for 5 years together! I used to do work-study in Back Bay and Harvard Square for years and when we first started dating I asked him if he wanted to come with me to a class. I always half-joke that you can really tell if your are compatible if you can sweat together and don’t mind the scent! #pheromones!
We have been married for two years now and always practice Bikram on our anniversary!

Who started first with BYW and how does practicing together motivate you?

Jake and I first met at the boxing gym.  We motivate each other and keep each other in check every day.
We absolutely LOVE having weekends when all we do is go to yoga, get in the ring, go bike riding together and then go on a date at the end of the day.  It is the best!
We make an effort to stay active, to eat well, and to know when it’s time to rest, relax, and restore.

Share with us how your practice has impacted your relationship?

For us, Bikram Yoga is something that truly provides happiness, balance, and meditation in our lives.  Plus, we use it as our physical therapy after years of hockey and Irish dancing!  We love practicing next to each other and being able to spend the quality time together.  We support one another in class with a little nod and smile after the standing series.  It is also lots of fun being a part of a community of yogi friends in Boston!
Thank you for creating such a happy and fun loving BYW studio. We can’t wait for our next practice!
