What is your favorite form of mind body movement or lesson you teach, and why?
My favorite go-to yoga pose is handstand. For 12 years, I was a competitive gymnast and I still find this pose can ground and calm me. As a teacher, one of my favorite things to do in class is empower each student’s journey towards personal growth and well-being.
What is your favorite song or type of music you listen to when teaching?
Anything that involves calming, healing sounds.
What inspires you?
People who give selflessly, are passionate and have overcome life’s challenges with strength, dignity and a positive attitude.
I am also inspired by nature, especially water.
What is a quote or mantra that you live by?
“The happiness and joys that come from the pleasures of the world are but a minute reflection of the infinite bliss that comes from within our own self.” ~Amma
What is your haven?
My haven exists in those moments when I am surrounded by family and close friends and when I can take a moment to reflect on the miracle of life.
