Based on the format of the Sober Yogis program, Healthy Yogis is a challenge that combines unlimited yoga with nutritional counseling, education and group support.
In 2016, Queen City Bikram Yoga started Bikram’s Biggest Losers program to help combat the leading cause of preventable death in America: Obesity. In our first season, participants lost inches and pounds and more importantly regained their confidence, health and happiness.
Our biggest issue in the first season was that our format played into our society's endemic and dysfunctional relationship between weight and worth. This program is so much more than dropping pounds. Participants didn't just lose weight, they gained confidence, made community connections, healed, and learned to look in the mirror with love and pride, not judgment. With that in mind, we are excited to announce a major restructuring of this program that will allow us to serve people with a host of challenges like disordered eating, chronic illness, autoimmune disease, PTSD, trauma, addiction, stress, depression, anxiety, self-hatred, anger management and more.
Healthy Yogis is a three-month challenge designed to help you make permanent changes to your life, to heal injuries, manage chronic disease, improve your relationship with food, and address issues that prevent you from being your happiest, healthiest self.
Based on the format of our successful Sober Yogis program, Healthy Yogis is a challenge that combines unlimited yoga with nutritional counseling/education, on-line support, and weekly group therapy sessions.

Lisa Lord brings the same depth, self-care, and awareness to her work as a nutritionist that we work for on the mat. She sends weekly emails including nutritional education, exercises, and meditations. She will also offer weekly Facebook-Live sessions to answer your burning questions. Lisa’s eating program helps dig into our deep-seated beliefs around eating and teaches participants to trust and fuel their bodies and heal disordered relationships with food. Lisa has particular expertise in the area of dealing with sugar addiction and helping people start where they are. Lisa will show you the way to stop dieting forever and heal your relationship with food.
The program will also feature weekly group therapy sessions with Debra Niemacz, MSW, LICSW, to help deal directly with your emotional issues and mental struggles. Debra has over 30 years of experience as a clinical social worker and is a trauma informed clinician. Her group helps folks learn how to express emotion, communicate with others, and learn self-love and self-care.
