Audra Williamson

Hot Pilates Instructor

Audra Williamson is a Bikram Yoga enthusiast, practicing for more than a decade. She's a member of USA Yoga, and has placed in the top 10 nationally in USA Yoga competitions. In addition to attending classes at Bikram Yoga at Brick Canvas since it opened (she practiced with Joanne at another studio and followed her here), Audra faithfully does Pilates at home. 

Being a teacher is nothing new to Audra. She's taught dance and ballet since she was 15; she also trains and coaches individuals who are preparing for USA Yoga competition. "Teaching the things I love is a passion of mine," she says. "That's why as soon as I heard Joanne was bringing Hot Pilates to the studio, I spoke to her about being involved." 

Bikram Yoga and Hot Pilates are the perfect workout options, says Audra. "I love to sweat! Sweating so much while building muscle allows you to have warm pliable muscles, and it allows your body to rid itself of toxins. Sweating is my favorite way to work out! Being fit is a necessity for so many requirements in this life, but most important to me is the connection I feel to my spirit and physical body. When I feel strong physically, I feel strong spiritually. This connection has less to do with how I look physically and more to do with how I feel physically."
