Bien started yoga in college in 2003 because he doesn't like to be sweaty. Since then, he learned a lot about physical strength, mental flexibility and balance in life. He has been teaching for 5 years throughout the Inland Empire, including CSU San Bernardino and The Yoga Room, and tries to share his passion and the lessons he has learned from yoga to his students. He has also gotten over his aversion to perspiration.
I enjoy teaching beginner and intermediate vinyasa flow classes because I like to encourage people to try new things. Fear is often times scarier than failure so many of us stop before we even try. I like to encourage students to just try, even if you know you won't succeed right away. There's nothing more exciting than seeing someone try something 99 times and fall, only to stick it the 100th time. I like to remind my students the poses are just poses; it's the confidence and self awareness that you get from practice that makes yoga so freeing .
