How long have you have been practicing at YS? Since November 2017

What is your favorite YS workshop or class? Power Flow with Katie- her style of teaching has pushed me to grow a lot in my practice. I always leave her class feeling relaxed and energized!

Name one thing you consider yourself to be very good at: I’m really good at drawing and making waffles.

What’s the number one yoga pose you just love to practice? Crow pose- it’s a great grounding pose and I hope it’s building the strength needed in my core to be able to handstand one day.

Why did you start practicing yoga? I hate the gym! I wanted to focus on a workout that could bring me more than just superficial results. After I started yoga, I was addicted to the focused mental side of the practice and the art of being able to remain still and calm under challenging circumstances.

Who inspires you the most and why? Rupaul- I love his pep talks and how he always says to choose love, stay engaged with the moment, and to never listen to your inner saboteur. Rupaul’s best quote- “If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?”

What do you just love about YogaSport? The strong sense of community and that the teachers aren’t afraid to let loose and make the classes fun.

What’s your guilty pleasure? Ice Cream!

Furthest city traveled: Athens, Greece

What is one thing we don’t know about you that would surprise us? I am very lucky! I win things all the time like trips and gift cards. I even won a brand new car last year!
