Tell us about the evolution of your yoga practice:
My yoga practice began as a skeptic. I was a teenager who just happened to stumble across a yoga class at the local gym I was going to. I’m not going to lie, I didn’t love it. But, when life got really hard a couple years later, I found myself on my mat again, and this time, I had a teacher that changed everything for me. The way he carried himself, the way he talked, the way he practiced; something told me he had found the light- I know I needed that for myself, too. So I started going two or three times a week and since then.. Yoga is my lifestyle. It has changed the way I look at the world.
What’s one thing you wish you could tell yourself when you began your yoga practice:
It doesn’t matter if it feels weird and silly, or you’re worried about what you look like.. You are meant to be doing this. Keep at it.
Why do you teach yoga:
I teach yoga because it has been such an enormous gift in my life; it has transformed my whole being. I just want to share that with people. I think EVERYONE needs yoga, in some way or another.
How long have you taught:
If you could have lunch with any inspiration individual (dead or alive) who and why:
That’s a tough one.. But I think it would be incredible to sit and chat with Gandhi. I think it’s amazing what he inspired and he is proof that our silly little life here on Earth can be absolutely magnificent and truly make an impact on the world and the people around us. To lead with
