I am visiting from MA and my local friend asked to do a bikram class (her first) and took the class with Marina. The studio smells of heavenly sage when you first walk in. We were given a tour, the studio is beautiful. There are no rugs in the yoga room. What a great idea! Marina taught the poses in a different way than I have heard (this is my 6th studio I have attended). I was able to understand the purpose of the poses in a new way and was able to get into position easier. She gave a great meditation at the end of class. Next time I come to the area I will definitely make time for another class. Thanks so much for a great experience.
