I took my first Bikram Yoga class because my Mom wouldn't loan me $100 unless I went to class. After that I started practicing 6 days a week in February 2005 after reading Bikram's book. After practicing for 7 months at that pace, I attended teacher training in Fall 2005. I first decided to compete after breaking my elbow in 2009, six months after the accident. I placed first in Western Canada Hatha yoga championship. The rest is history..
