Favorite yoga pose: Revolved Triangle...it's one part of the practice that helps me twist out all sorts of bad energy, stretch the whole body, and, at the same time, makes me feel like I'm weaving through museum security laser lights.
Yoga is...a companion.
My NON-guilty pleasure is... giving my roommate's dog an extra treat now-and-then.
When I wake up in the morning, I always do these two things... A) make a French press of coffee and B) drink it all.
What do you love most about your yoga practice? I love seeing progress the most, but not necessarily in my poses. Honestly, my motivation comes from the progress I see in the way I think and perceive the world off my mat.
What's the best advice you've ever received? “Listen to your conscience.”
What's your yoga story? How did you start practicing? My first exposure to yoga was in acting class where I met a fellow student who exuded a magnetic glow that I wanted. I was curious what was the source of this glow? I asked him what he did? He said, “I teach Yoga.” I was intrigued by the idea of trying yoga but I was afraid I would not be good at it.
Why did you decide to teach Yoga? I can’t remember a moment where I decided. I do remember reaching out to a lot of the wonderful teachers in my community, about their opinions on trainings. It naturally fell into place as a next step, as things to do when you lead with your heart.
