Linda Rabadi- Worlds Greatest Bikram Yoga Instructor

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, I'm feelin' good from my heart to my soul. I know what I'm doin' and how to do it!! I was runnin' hot, runnin' cold, my emotions ran into overload. It was ex-ex-ex-ex-extreme. Like a roller coaster I was high in the air, sacred shizzz going down with no control, I was so low there was nowhere to go ,there I stood in my darkest hour. My phone lite up and it was my cousin Linda. In shock with my attitude. She tidied up her point of view and said " Love just please go do Bikram yoga. I swear it will change your life". The wires uncrossed, the tables are turned. I had a lesson to learn. Cousin you were so so so right. Bikram yoga has been praised by star athletes, actors and everyday people. Celebs like Madonna, Jennifer Aniston and now Lady Gaga have made Bikram yoga a must. Bikram yoga is ninety minute, twenty-six posture sequence is specifically designed to stimulate each organ, gland, muscle and system of the human body, forming a comprehensive system of practical health-maintenance and disease prevention. Today I am speaking to my amazing cousin Linda Rabadi who is a  Bikram Yoga instructorLinda has been traveling the world teaching at different sudios for the past year.Here is my saving grace, the lovely, sexy, don't take shit from noone, my soulmate LINDA RABADI!!!

Talk about POSTURE!!

 
David
Hello Mrs. I am flexible, strong and focused. What makes you sweat besides yoga?
 
Linda
Heeeyyy! Still working on all 3, plus many other things that go along with the everyday growth of life.  Lots of things make me sweat, some I'd rather not mention, but nothing makes me sweat like Bikram Yoga.  It's the BEST!!

Can't believe you went sky diving without me : (


 
David
What made you deiced to become a yoga instructor and teach all around the world?
 
Linda
I found my self addicted to Bikram Yoga, as I was always at the studio.  I planned my whole day around my 4 or 6pm class.  I was taking class one afternoon and my favorite instructor Alicia was teaching and it just hit me like a baseball bat...I thought "this is her job, how amazing?!"  Then I started asking questions and researching teacher training.  I found out there are studios pretty much all over the world and then another baseball bat came swinging.  I love to travel and I love Bikram Yoga, so I've been blessed to have figured out a way never to work again and travel the world. 

Go yogi, Go yogi! FOCUS!!!

Yoga has been shown to consistently reverse the effects of aging, regulate metabolism, reduce the effects of stress and strain, and substantially aid in the cure of chronic disease for many practitioners. A lot of people that don't practice yoga have a hard time believing it can really change your life. What would you say to these people?
 
Linda
There are no magic pills!!!! Our bodies are amazing!! It's the one tool we have and most people don't know how to use it.  Bikram says "You have nothing if you don't know how to use it" Our body is designed to heal itself!  Yoga, any type of yoga, teaches you to listen, feel, and be with your body.  Of course doing the posture correctly to gain 100% benefit.
 
 
David
What posture do you struggle with the most?
 
Linda
Well my practice changes from day to day and week to week and month to month, like everyone.  I am now and have been struggling with Standing Head to Knee Pose.  It just means that it needs to be my favorite posture..lol

Girl: who you looking at?

 
David
How do you deal with the different personalities traits of the students that practice?
 
Linda
OMG I have so many stories about this topic.  I have learned that whatever the students bring in with them is 1. their stuff  2. my goal to make them forget about it 3. never take it personal.  Regardless of there attitude I am there to teach them to meditated by kicking, pulling, stretching, being still, and of course breathing.
 
David
Faith, self-control, determination, concentration and patience are key to having a great class. Which one of these qualities are most important in your class?
 
Linda
All the above!! These are all important in the hot room just as much as they are important outside the hot room.  People come to Bikram Yoga not only to work on their body but also work on their life by building the mental strength, determination, and will power.  Believing in ones self is half the struggle in living life.  Once you believe in YOU anything is possible! 
 
David
What is the most rewarding part for you as a instructor?
 
Linda
Oh so much! I really love teaching!  I love seeing how the yoga really improves peoples life, and how they improve their postures and their behavior in the hot room.  Watching them grow and noticing them notice themselves grow gives me such a high.  I also LOVE when they HATE me in the hot room. I can almost hear what they are thinking and then after class they thank me with so much love...it feels so good! Bikram Yogis are truly the best! They are the only yogis who will throw up in their mouth before leaving the room...yes they swallow it and continue to kick and stretch.
 
David
