SIX AM IN LA ~ A Yoga Journey Guide by Patricia Gavin
SIX AM IN LA by Author Patricia Gavin is a story of Bikram yoga as an alternative and rehabilitative form of physical therapy. Bikram Yoga is a Hatha Yoga method of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises conducted in 90 minutes in a climate controlled environment - a mirrored studio heated to 105 degrees with 40 percent humidity.
The author's journey is also a story of self-realization as a mother of two Native American children and how the practice of Hatha Yoga can be applied to alleviate pain and chronic health issues of veterans. Bikram Yoga was founded as a form of "hot" hatha yoga by Bikram Choudhury and for the last 50 years in the United States has been used to extend the careers and longevity of athletes, actors, politicians and professionals from 18 to 80 years old and beyond.
This story is a credit to Bikram and Rajashree Choudhury and the legions of people whose health, quality of life and longevity have benefited from the practice. It is also a credit to the 12,000 plus certified instructors who teach the Bikram Yoga "26 & 2" series to millions across the globe who practice daily to improve their health and reduce national health care costs through their efforts.

Bikram Yoga was tougher than my military physical training....it isn't easy to begin with, but I can say the Bikram method paid off and literally saved my life. Bikram delivered on the promise of a 'healthy spine and happy life' after a fall in Paris that left me unable to raise my arms above my head after a spinal injury.
The Bikram Method should be taught in public schools to eliminate gun violence and bring a total understanding of the mind-body relationship to teens and adults alike...It should also be taught to military members and their spouses to deal with stress of the missions placed upon service members and their families. It should be taught to the elderly as well as our Congressional representatives who legislate healthcare issues. Bikram Yoga leads to a 'healthy spine and a happy life! I am living proof. -- this is my yoga journey.
