What is your favorite form of mind body movement or lesson you teach, and why?
I love to teach flow, but my most favorite is alignment-based yoga. I also love to teach yoga as a tool to help someone come to realize life is worth living and that they can find their own personal meaning and purpose; if I do that, I feel that my mission as a yoga teacher has been accomplished.
What is your favorite song or type of music you listen to when teaching?
I love to use the Zen Garden station on Pandora — it is my absolute favorite. It is inspiring, peaceful and bubbling with a positive energy.
What inspires you?
Nature, particularly the sunrise. And my two boys.
What is a quote or mantra that you live by?
“Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.” ~B.K.S. Iyengar
