Karen Frye - Teacher & Founder

There are many things in my life for which I am thankful. Most certainly, one of those things is good health. It's my life's passion to share knowledge and to help others in enjoying the healthiest life possible.

When I discovered Bikram Yoga in 2008 and learned about the restorative attributes of these postures, it became clear to me that this was what my body needed. There are so many benefits both mentally and physically that I've personally experienced - I feel like I am reversing the aging process of my body each time I take class. I love what Bikram Yoga has done for me!

Fall of 2012, I took the leap from student to teacher and went to "the source" to complete the intensive 9-week, 700 hour training. It was difficult to leave my family, my friends, my life - but the total immersion convinced me even more of the benefits of this therapeutic yoga sequence. Without a doubt, I knew that I wanted to share this life changing practice; and by Summer 2013, Bikram Yoga Southern Pines opened its doors! In April 2016, it was time to branch out and attend Inferno Hot Pilates Training.

Today, not only are we more than "just Bikram", I'm proud to say that we're also more than "just yoga". Yes, we offer yoga classes and seminars, but our focus is on you, our students, and providing a warm, welcoming environment.

I am grateful for all you folks who come and practice at Bikram Yoga Southern Pines. It's been such a blessing welcoming old friends and making new ones! It's my pleasure to teach and practice with you - All of you are such an inspiration! Bikram Yoga Southern Pines is blossoming thanks to YOU!

 

     
 

Marcella Lincicome

I am a ERYT- 500 hour certified yoga teacher with a passion for helping people live their best lives. Using the tools of mindful breathing and movement and meditation helped bring me out of a dark place in my life. I have a 14 yr old daughter with special needs and 11 year old twin boys who keep me very happy and busy. While showing up for my family has brought me joy, it is being of service to my community that helps me follow my own unique path. My work as a transformational health coach and yoga teacher allows me to spread the message that transformation of the mind, body and spirit is possible and more than that, it's our birthright!

If you had met me 20 years ago, I'd be the absolute last person you'd ever expect to be a yogini. My first class was in Paris. As fate would have it, the Bikram studio was the only one with daily classes in English. With a dedicated following, the disciplined students were packed in mat-to-mat. It was beyond intimidating. I felt like an ugly American duckling in a sea of French swans. By the end of class, I had forgotten my awkwardness and instead was taken by how nice and supportive everyone was towards each other. I was curious. I was hooked.

After that, my practice was split between the Soho New York and Paris studios. I was traveling a lot and loved that wherever I went a Bikram studio was sure to be found. With this practice, my body and life began to change in ways I never thought possible. In 2007, it was time to attend training and learn more about this healing yoga sequence from the man himself. Since then, I've explored other yogic disciplines and earned certifications in children's yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, and Anuttara Raja Yoga.

Teaching is a privilege, an honor, to guide fellow yogis though the class and the benefits. It is a constant joy, my pleasure, to witness the unfoldment as students find themselves one posture, one class, one day at a time…

I was first introduced to Bikram Yoga in 2013 by my boss at the time who loved the Yoga and knew I would fall in love with it too. At that time, I was working in a hair salon and was excited to find a physical activity that would help me lose weight, as well as balance out the repetitive arm and wrist movements I was becoming accustomed to. Little did I know, I was about to discover much more.

My first Bikram class was, well to say the least, a bit of a mess. I decided to come back the next day to try again, noticing that during and even after class, I felt a little better than the first day. I loved that my teacher was so positive, compassionate and encouraging to ‘never give up’. A couple of days turned into two months of mindlessly driving to the yoga studio when I had free time. I became addicted to the feeling this Yoga created within me, and so I completed a 30 day yoga challenge my third month as a student.

In the fall of 2014, I attended the Bikram Yoga teacher training in Thailand. I made friends from all over the world, but most importantly, this life changing experience showed me more of who I am. I never really believed that I could be a teacher, but through this training I fell in love with helping others heal themselves and experience what I had felt.
I attended recertification in the fall of 2017, spending one week with Bikram during a teacher training, it was a mini dose of what I went through initially 3 years prior.

I have a passion to travel, and through teaching, I hope to experience different areas of the world. I’ve been lucky to teach in NC, RI and New Zealand. I’ve also practiced in studios in NYC, Mexico, London, Glasgow and Dublin.

I am thankful for such an opportunity to teach and learn from other teachers and hardworking students. Cant wait to see you in the hot room!

I tried my first yoga class at the encouragement of my daughter, and after just a couple of classes, realized its power beyond the benefits of the physicality of the asanas. Yoga has provided me with an acceptance of myself and where I am right now in life, as well as a clarity of mind and spirit and a restored sense of creativity. I quickly realized that I wanted to learn more and to share the benefits of yoga with others. I completed my 200-hour power vinyasa teacher training with Tamal Dodge of Tamal Yoga in 2013 as well as workshops and continuing education in Prenatal Yoga, Trauma Sensitive Yoga, Yoga for Healthy Aging, and Yoga for All. I am registered with the Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT 200, YACEP.

I hope to bring to each practice and share a love of alignment along with a sense of play and exploration and a desire to make yoga truly accessible to all, encouraging progression at one’s individual pace and level to attain the increased physical, mental, and spiritual well-being a practice can offer. My special interests for continued exploration include the use of yoga/meditation for mental wellness, seniors, children — practitioners of all ages, sizes, and abilities. Yoga is for everyone, and I am excited and so very grateful to have the opportunity to lead practices in such a beautiful, welcoming space.
