Shiny Happy Yogi: Mariah Orellana
Our Student of the month!
We're all about celebrating our students here at BYGVNC, and what better way than to feature one of you each month. Many of you have inspiring stories about how you found Bikram Yoga and the positive changes it has brought to your life, and we're excited to share them here as motivation for all.
Yoga has been a part of my life for a while, but in the last year it has become a significant part of my life. It has become my personal time and my grounding place. Practicing yoga has helped me in many ways, the most obvious being the physical benefit, increased stamina and improved sleep patterns. Besides the physical benefit, the act of spending time focusing only on my body and nothing else has created space for mental and emotional healing to occur. Yoga has brought a sense of relief to my crazy hectic life, and amazingly that feeling has not diminished over time. Every time I enter the yoga studio I feel an overwhelming sense of relief and I know that I am in the right place!
A few more questions for our Shiny Happy Yogi:
Q: How long have you been practicing?
M: I have been practicing Bikram for the past year, but I have been practicing other styles of yoga (mostly in my living room) for the past 6-7 years.
Q: How often do you practice a week?
M: Recently I've been practicing daily, I like to practice at least 5 times a week.
Q: What is your favorite pose?
M: This is a tough one...lately I have really been loving the stretch that I get from eagle pose, but this changes.
Q: Where do you spend your time when you are not at the studio?
M: Outside of the yoga studio I can be found walking my dogs at the yuba river or another one of our beautiful trails, and most likely foraging wild herbs along the way, working with the family's catering service, or studying Ayurveda.
Q: What do you love?
M: I love tasty food, yoga, and good company.
Q: What is your favorite quote?
M: "This too shall pass."
Q: What advice would you give a first-timer?
M: Listen to your body, and don't be too hard on yourself!
Q: Who's someone in your life you'd love to see join you in the room and why?
Q: Say one nice thing about the person who first told you about Bikram Yoga.
M: A good friend first told me about Bikram yoga, and I will be forever grateful to her because of it! She is a beautiful person with a beautiful heart and lots of love to share.
Q: Do you have any yoga goals for the future?
M: To use yoga to protect my body, and mind, from whatever stresses life will bring. A few pictures of Mariah in our advanced postures that she demonstrated in our recent Three-Set-Class.
