12. What do you like most about Thavma Bikram Yoga?

The staff, The yogis, The positive energy in the studio and The spiritual connectedness. 

As I travel on business, I have made it a point to visit a Bikram studio in the cities I visit.  So far, I have attended Bikram classes in Miami and Las Vegas and feel so blessed to be part of the Thavma family.  While the practice in these cities is consistent, there is no comparison with the overall positive vibe and energy that we are blessed to have in Thavma.  What Marina and her staff have created is an oasis of spiritual beauty and well-being that keeps me looking forward to each practice.

 Grateful to be part of the Thavma family…
