Bikram Yoga


This class is taught by:

Yun Shen

Yun came to Bikram Yoga as a means to lose that last 15lbs of baby weight that just wouldn't go away after having her second baby. Instead, she found a healing experience that she cannot live without. Not only did she shed the baby weight, yoga helped cure her allergies to just about everything that breathes and anything green as well as her Chronic Bronchitis. She attended the Spring 2013 Teacher Training program and has completely fallen in love with teaching since the day after graduation. She is inspired every day and with every class by the students who come take class. "They are my heroes and its my absolute honor to share energy with each and every person." Namaste!

Ping Chu

Ping began studying yoga in 2005. She graduated from Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in 2006. Within the first couple of months of practicing Bikram Yoga in 2005, her lower back pain of over 20 years magically disappeared. The following several more months, her asthma of twenty years was also cured.

Ping enjoys sharing her experiences and guiding others on their own journey of yoga. Ping’s approach is warm and clear with an appreciation of the uniqueness between individuals. She also studied with senior yoga teachers in the alignment based style of Iyengar and Anusara Yoga.

Reggie Meneses

After studying various movement styles, Reggie Meneses, RYT began practicing Bikram Yoga while residing in New York City in 2000. He quickly discovered that the 26 posture Bikram Yoga series took him to deeper sensations of relaxation and self-realization than anything else he had practiced in the past. Also, his chronic back pain subsided and eventually disappeared altogether within weeks of continued practice. He also lost unneeded pounds and significantly lowered his blood pressure.

Reggie is the 2010 Men's Virginia Yoga Champion and represented Virginia in the National Yoga Asana Championship in Los Angeles in March 2011. Previously in 2004, he was also the Men's Mid-Atlantic Regional Yoga Champion and represented the Maryland, Virginia, and Washington DC area at the Bishnu Ghosh Cup World Yoga Championship that following year in Los Angeles.

Currently, Reggie teaches a variety of classes including Pure Power, Fluid Vinyasa, and Bikram Hot Yoga.  His students represent a wide diversity of people. He has taught Bikram Yoga classes in Maryland, New York, California, Florida, and Washington, DC. He is also one of the founders of the award-winning Bikram Yoga studio in Cockeysville, Maryland.

Reggie has a Bachelor of Arts in History, a Bachelor of Science in Theatre and a Master of Fine Arts in Acting Performance. Reggie is also certified as a Professional in Human Resources (PHR) and has a certificate in Human Resource Management from George Mason University.

Reggie earned his Bikram Yoga Teacher Certification in June of 2001. When teaching Bikram Yoga, Reggie uses his theatre skills often. One of his New York City students remarked, "Reggie's instruction is positive yet firm, encouraging and focused. A great motivator and really knows how to get the best out of you." He is available by appointment for private and group instruction. Email Reggie via the studio for questions and/or appointments.

Reggie resides in Fairfax with his partner, Dave, and their rambunctious black pug, Lord Mugsley von Snuggles.

Tandy Gustin

Tandy is a Montana native but resides on the east coast because of…well, professionally it makes, um sense if you…geez, love. Love is what keeps her here. She’s been a Bikram conduit since 2003 and is convinced it’s what keeps her mostly sane. She received her doctorate in nurse anesthesia practice this year, which means she’ll put you to sleep for your surgery. Even better though, she’ll wake you up when it’s over!

Carol Neiler

After several years of practice, Carol graduated from San Diego 2010 Teacher Training. With a background in Massage Therapy, her thorough knowledge of human anatomy/physiology and musculoskeletal anatomy, gives her an in depth perspective of each posture. She brings a light sense of humor into each class, to keep you smiling as you sweat. Carol's happy and encouraging nature fits the entire spectrum of student, whether it be beginner or veteran.

Julie Hord

Julie began practicing Bikram Yoga in July 2006 to calm her nerves and keep her occupied after her husband was deployed to Afghanistan. Little did she know how much that first day walking into the hot room would absolutely transform her life. It was one of the best decisions she’s ever made and has been an inextricable part of her life ever since. She attended Spring 2010 Teacher Training in Las Vegas and began teaching in Las Vegas, where she also served as Manager at Bikram Yoga Green Valley. In April 2011, she moved to Virginia where she now teaches and serves as Manager at Bikram Yoga Reston. She loves teaching and practicing Bikram Yoga, surrounded by positive, bright yogis, sincerely delving into their practice and becoming better, truer versions of themselves in the process. Before teaching Bikram Yoga, she was classically trained on the french horn, received her Master of Arts Management at Carnegie Mellon University and worked in arts management field. Julie enjoys spending time with her husband, their wacky muppet dog, watching (and discussing) movies, art, trying new restaurants, traveling and glitter.
