About the Teacher:
Senior Teacher Radha Garcia taught yoga for 25 years before she was one of 35 students who attended Bikram Choudhury’s first teacher training in 1994. Inspired by the practice, Radha brought Bikram Yoga to Colorado and has been a devoted and respected teacher and the owner of Boulder Bikram Yoga ever since.
JJ Garcia was born and raised in Boulder, CO. He is the son of Radha Garcia and brother of Esak Garcia; together this awesome trio forms the principals of Boulder Bikram Yoga. JJ took his first Bikram yoga class at the age of 8 from Bikram himself when he visited Teacher Training for his mother’s graduation in 1994. After that first class, JJ continued practicing yoga on occasion. At the age of 20, after suffering several sports related injuries to his knees and left ankle, JJ became dedicated to his Bikram yoga practice in an effort to heal his injuries. He completed his own 400-day challenge, practicing 400 days in a row, and has been practicing a minimum of 4 times per week since 2007. He attended teacher training in the fall of 2011. As a teacher, JJ loves seeing the change in students as they commit to this practice; it truly brings out the best in everyone. “Mind over the matter, what’s the matter? Never Mind!”
