Bronze Winner Maxine Jeffrey, Therapeutic Approach Yoga StudioWhile Kristin Johnston won’t sugar-coat the realities of your first Bikram class—it’s going to be hot, it’s going to be hard and most likely it’ll shove you out of your comfort zone—she’s quick to remind you not to give up, because it gets better. “I try to really emphasize the fact that anybody can be in that room. No matter size, shape, gender...anybody can walk through that door and feel like they should be here.” Just two years after opening her Bikram Yoga studio, Johnston has built her own, very sweaty, community.
