How did yoga become a part of your life?
When my husband lived in the bay area of California, we had a space on the second floor of of warehouse building in an artist live/work community. Below us was a yoga studio that I would go to everyday. I fell in love with yoga there and I was hooked!
What led you to a devoted practice?
Yoga helps me physically, emotionally, spiritually and inspires me to be a much more aware and better human being
What do you think is the biggest misconception people have about yoga?
Most people new to yoga think that they may not flexible or athletic enough. Yoga is about the practice, the journey, not competition. If you can stretch only a little in a pose…you are doing yoga. Being present, breathing in your poses, connects you to your true self, your soul and healing.
Name three non-negotiable in my life.
Love, Beauty, and Justice,the attributes of a true Libra!
What is the pose that challenges you the most and why?
Handstand (Adho Mukha Vrksasana) has been challenging for me because of my fear of falling on my head, but continual practice has help me get over it!
Mantra I share with students….
“Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavaintu"
- May all being everywhere be happy and free and may the thoughts, words, actions, of my own life, contribute to that happiness and freedom for all.
