ABOUT OUR STUDIOS
Emily and Philip Vendemmia opened the Severna Park Bikram Yoga location in November, 2007. The studio offered thirteen classes a week and there were two teachers on staff. In 2009, an additional location in Annapolis was opened and in 2011, an additional location in Crofton was opened. Between the three locations, there are more than seventy class times on the weekly schedule, and there are twelve part-time and full-time instructors on staff.
Emily is the FIVE time Mid-Atlantic Regional Yoga Champion and placed 4th in the 2010 National Championship and 2nd in the 2011 National Champonship. Along with earning her Bikram Yoga teaching certificate in 2006, she also studied privately with Esak Garcia and Mary Jarvis, two of the most respected names in the yoga community. Bikram's nickname for Emily is "Ms. Muscle."
Philip earned a Bachelor's degree in Education in 1999 and completed Bikram's teacher training in 2010. He was named Valedictorian of his graduating class of over four hundred students and given the nickname "Russian Ballerina" by Bikram himself.
