Student Testimonials

We're grateful to have helped our students improve their health in so many ways. Here are just a few of their amazing transformations.

I was diagnosed with mild high blood pressure as a young adult and have been on a low level medication for about 10 years. During this time I have maintained an average blood pressure of around 135 / 85 with the higher number never going below 130 and sometimes as high as 150. I took my first 11 classes in consecutive days and on the seventh day my blood pressure was down to 116 / 61 and hasn’t reached more than 120 since.

I had chronic neck and shoulder pain for years. I had bursitis in both shoulders at one point (about 20 years ago) and sciatica. The Foundry has really taken that chronic pain away. No more physical therapy or chiropractic visits. My strength and flexibility have improved so much since I started practicing.

As a result of regular practice over the last two years, I lost 38 pounds; in addition to getting a tight butt and abs and increasing flexibility my practice has increased my body tone, eliminated most body pain, lowered my blood pressure and gotten rid of my asthma symptoms.

I am OCD and when I started the yoga I began to see growth in my professional life. Our radio show’s ratings went through the roof, we picked up more cities, and we’re getting more, knock on wood, and I’m convinced it’s because of The Foundry. It helps me unwind and focus on things other than the craziness in my life. The Foundry helped my body heal fast, it has helped with my back problem and my short temper.

Since I started doing Bikram Yoga, I have noticed some incredible changes. I lost about 45 pounds and I stopped taking the two cholesterol medications I had been on for the last two years. In January, my cholesterol was down to 155 from well over 300. My appetite has decreased and I have eliminated fast food and soft drinks from my diet. In addition to healing the lower back injury, the most remarkable benefit I have received from The Foundry is my short recovery time from a serious knee injury and knee surgery.

Yoga relieved aches and pains in my hands, neck, and back, which are aches any massage therapist who works 8 to 10 hours a day experiences. I realized my hands did not require ice therapy that often reduced the pain, my back did not cry for rest as before, and I could turn my head with ease. The Foundry brought me the inner peace I was missing, the ‘pain free body,’ and the belief that if I survived a class I could do anything in my life.
