JJ Jones-Loui is not a native of St. Louis but has lived here almost 12 years now with her husband Kip Loui.
When not at the studio, JJ enjoys hiking, making and creating jewelry (Her very own L.I.T. Creations are available for purchase at the studio!), playing harmonica and singing with her husband in their band, The High Dives.
When JJ had her first Bikram experience she had not done much of any yoga and was surprised how she felt during and after her first class. The intensity and clarity of mind she felt after only one time had her hooked. As Bikram himself says, “Change your body, change your mind, change your life.” Having only practiced just a few times, she knew that this was something that would do just that.
JJ practiced for about a year at Pure Hot Yoga St. Louis (formerly Bikram Yoga St Louis) and then went to Hawaii in the spring of 2007 for teacher training. She had the time of her life! She met people from all over the world with the same desire to teach Bikram yoga. She wanted to help others find the strength and empowerment that Bikram Yoga had given her.
JJ feels fortunate to be a part of such a wonderful and supportive community at Pure Hot Yoga St. Louis. Come on down and take a class with her or any of the other amazing instructors at our studio.
