BYAA INSTRUCTORS


Michelle Pischea

Owner/Director

I have been practicing Bikram Yoga for 10 years and now honored to be the Owner/Director of BYAA.  I have the greatest job in the world – helping people heal themselves.

Judy Wan

Instructor

I practice Bikram Yoga because it allows me to live my best life. I came to my first class seeking relief from constant injuries due to climbing and running.

Jenny Keupper O'Neil

Instructor

Jenny has been practicing Bikram yoga for many years. Through her practice she has healed aches and pains, while gaining strength, flexibility, and balance.

Dayne Laycy

Instructor

I have practiced every kind of yoga under the sun and moon but it wasn’t until I stepped into the hot room for the first time and completed a Bikram Yoga class did I really fall in love with myself and everyone around me.

Robert Salazar

Instructor

Practicing yoga on a regular basis has  brought peace, compassion, and much more patience into my life. I no longer take prescription drugs on a regular basis, I feel better, and I can always count on feeling good after a Bikram Yoga Class.

Kelly Williams Salazar

Instructor

Bikram yoga has been a mainstay in my life for the past 10+ years.  It’s counter-intuitive to think doing the same postures in the same order every class isn’t boring but this series will change your mind!

Gina Bak

Instructor

I have been practicing Bikram yoga since 2003 and teaching since 2005. I believe in the practice – the principals are simple, the practice is challenging…

Shannon Ellis

Instructor

 I started practicing in Portland, Oregon after experiencing injuries and pain from running.  I needed something that would help me heal and challenge me.

Jozlyn Abrams

Instructor

My first yoga class was at the age of 15.  I was very athletic and discovered that practicing yoga had profound benefits both physically and mentally.
