How long have you have been practicing at YS? 7 months
What is your favorite YS workshop or class? Any that Nicole teaches – she keeps it light-hearted and fun, always has me laughing!
Name one thing you consider yourself to be very good at: Sleeping
What’s the number one yoga pose you just love to practice? Savasana, especially with lavies. I love the cool down with the relaxing music, and the lavies are so refreshing – I’ve never seen that done anywhere else!
Why did you start practicing yoga? For the health benefits – physical, mental, emotional. The rest of my day can be quite stressful and yoga is a great way to relax and forget about all of that. I always leave feeling better than when I started.
Who inspires you the most and why? This was a tough one since there are multiple, but
ultimately I have to go with several patients I’ve had over the years that have been positive,
uplifting and strong in the most adverse conditions. I think back to them often whenever I’m struggling with something to refresh my perspective of what is actually worth worrying about and what isn’t.
What do you just love about YogaSport? The people, and especially the assistants! This group has the happiest, friendliest, most supportive group of structors I have ever come across! I’m not very flexible and occasionally end up in an incorrect position. Previous yoga studios I practiced at would call your name out during class to correct something. Here, the assistants come by and quietly adjust you allowing you to really have your own personal practice without anyone else knowing your level of experience.
What’s your guilty pleasure? Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, any Kardashian television show, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills/Orange County, many others…
Furthest city traveled: Brisbane, Australia
What is one thing we don’t know about you that would surprise us? I love playing blackjack in Vegas! It’s probably a good thing I don’t live there!
