YOLANDE LLOYD-SMALL - KINGSTON JAMAICA
For years, though I had enjoyed various forms of yoga, it was more recreational than a way of life. For me, exercise had to be physical and high-intensity, otherwise, what was the point? As a marathon enthusiast, I finished five marathons over a decade, with intense cross-country cycling. This intensity had also taken place in my professional life. I have been a Police Officer, and then a Lawyer for over 20 years and loved both for their intensity. All of these were different parts of my journey.
In 2013, all of my paths led me to Los Angeles and the Bikram Yoga teacher training. Spending nine weeks immersed in Bikram Yoga and studying with teachers such as Yoga Masters Bikram and Rajashree Choudhury and their staff of senior teachers helped me crystalize my goals. Among these goals was to bring Bikram Yoga to Jamaica, my home. To that end, I studied and taught at studios in Miami, New Haven, and Atlanta. Learning both the teaching and the leadership styles of the different studios was an amazing experience. Welcome to Bikram Yoga Jamaica!
