Opening her own yoga studio was a dream come true for native Parkvillian Debbie Vojik.
A student of Bikram yoga for 13 years and a teacher for the past 6, Vojik recently opened Bikram Yoga Midatlantic in Harford Road Plaza on Aug. 27.
"I really thought that this community needed it," Vojik said."So far people who have come in have been really, really happy—they're glad not to have to drive all the way around the beltway anymore."
Vojik, a nurse by trade who previously taught yoga at Bikram Yoga Hampden and Bikram Yoga Baltimore, teaches about half of the 20 classes at her new studio.
Bikram is a form of yoga practiced in a hot room—the room at Bikram Mid Atlantic is kept at 105 degrees.
"It's 26 postures or 'asanas' and two breathing exercises," Vojik said. "Classes are 90 minutes long, and they never change."
Bikram Yoga Mid Atlantic is located at 9512 Harford Road, and for class schedules you can check out their website.
