TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; After many years, our beloved local Bikram Yoga Sierra studio is relocating its studio. Although the studio will be closed during the brief relocation process all of Truckee is invited to join our wonderful and supportive family of yoga students and staff and celebrate, together, the relocation and rebirth of Bikram Yoga Sierra!

Truckee owned and operated Bikram Yoga Sierra (owner Tanya Rose Bordner) was a solid center for local strength (both mind and body) for many years and has, over the years, donated large sums of money from her and#8220;Karmaand#8221; class proceeds directly back into our own community to a myriad of local charitable organizations, including the Truckee Humane Society, Tahoe Womenand#8217;s Services, Girls On The Run, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nevada County and North Lake Tahoe, Lake Tahoe Wolf Rescue, Nevada Humane Society, Friends of the Local Libraries, the KidZone and Tahoe Forest Hospice. Bordner through Bikram also made donations to several local families during times of extreme sadness and need. Bikram Yoga Sierra even assisted a local Iraq war veteran bring his beloved Iraqi canine companion home to the United States of America, in conjunction with the SPCAand#8217;s and#8220;Operation Baghdad Pups.and#8221; The class is named the and#8220;Karmaand#8221; class because every single penny of attendee proceeds is donated to a local charitable organization.

Bikram Yoga Sierra also offers to the community certain classes at reasonable drop in rates as well as providing a student pricing schedule.

For those who do not know: Bikram Yoga is a challenging series of 26 postures and two breathing exercises, suitable for all ages and all levels of ability. Each posture stretches, strengthens and prepares the specific muscles, ligaments and joints which are needed for the following posture. Bikram Yoga reshapes your body, restores flexibility, tones and strengthens your muscles and raises oneand#8217;s energy level, while burning calories, building endurance and flushing toxins from the body.

After a just a brief and#8220;getting to know the yogaand#8221; period, you will feel better than you have felt in years and#8212; no matter your age!
