"welcome. like it or not you are now a part of the bikram yoga family. whether today’s class will become something that is laughed about with friends and never attempted again, a daily routine, an occasional pass time or obsession, your experience today will stay with you forever. this means i have ninety minutes, and ninety minutes only to show you a practice i have dedicated a part of my life, my heart and much of my body to. so listen carefully, because this is important, this can change your life in ways you never thought possible."
