Fun Fact: I have an incredibly hard time sitting still. Yoga is the only thing that has worked to allow me to sit in stillness.
Who is your favorite teacher and why? That’s a hard one. I love all the Mukti teachers. Julie has been such a tremendous inspiration and mentor in my life, she always challenges me both mentally and physically on the mat. I love Jamie’s flow and the way that Wendy knows the body.
What are your intentions for your yoga practice? To prevent injuries and help me to find a balance in my life and to allow me to relax!
What inspires you? My goal with my life is to make a difference in the world and to leave it a better place then when I entered it. Through my work, seeing people improve their health is so inspirational.
How long have you practiced yoga and how has it improved your life? I found yoga over 3 years ago to help heal my body from a running injury. I have been practicing yoga consistently since I found Mukti yoga and the Green Yogi! Yoga has healed me both inside and out. I hope to continue practicing yoga throughout my life. I call the Green Yogi my second home and family!
When you aren’t on the mat, where can we find you? Running 🙂 walking my dog- Otis, or watching sports!
