What is your favorite YS workshop or class? I always enjoy whatever class I take at YS!

What are you pretty darn good at? I’m artistic by nature so I love anything creative such as cooking, gardening or
decorating.

What’s the number one yoga pose you just love to practice? I just love Headstand closely followed by Shoulder Stand. They are both magical poses with healing qualities.

Why did you start practicing yoga? I started practicing when I moved to Dallas in 2001 at Yoga Power a Baptiste inspired studio. I had heard about the benefits of yoga and thought I’d just try it and see what the buzz was about. I had no idea it would have such a positive influence in my life.

Who inspires you the most and why? Many people have special qualities that I admire but, I’m most inspired by my two girls because they constantly challenge me to change, evolve and be a stronger version of myself.

What do you just love about YogaSport? There are many qualities I love about YS but a few things that come to mind are the wonderful instructors and the fabulous adjustments. Every teacher is prepared and really present when they step in the room.

What’s your guilty pleasure? I love a good nap!

Furthest city traveled: Holland, for my grandmother’s 90th birthday.

What is one thing we don’t know about you that would surprise us?
I’ve listened to a lot of great music over the years but my 70’s playlists are my fav!
