Why yoga? Yoga reminds me to breathe, open my heart, and stay grounded. Just as important, yoga is fun and invigorating!

What makes you come alive? The beauty of nature. I feel bursting with energy whenever I spend time outside, and I am so lucky to live in an
area with a great park system that allows me to take in the glorious sights nature has to offer.

3 words to describe your teaching style: As I am currently going through Yoga Teacher Training it is difficult to pinpoint three words to describe my teaching style. For now I would have to say: Growing, Evolving, and Adapting.

Life before yoga: Life before yoga was just different in many aspects. I was self-conscious, a little guarded, and scatter brained. I didn’t take the time to live in the moment and enjoy everything going around me. Instead, I was focusing on things in the past and worrying about the future, ignoring the great things happening in the present.

Life After yoga: Picturesque and flawless. I’m just kidding, but my life after yoga has definitely changed for the better. There may still be days where I feel how did before doing yoga, but now those are easier to recognize and work on bettering. Yoga has taught me how to clear my mind, open my heart, and ground myself. The greatest gift yoga has given me is the gift of being present, being able to enjoy and give my energy to the moment at hand and enjoy the company of those around me.

Secret pleasure: My secret pleasure is definitely indulging in a pint of Mitchell’s salted caramel ice cream.

What is in your backpack: I don’t usually carry a backpack but there are usually car keys and chapstick in my pockets!

What impact do you want to leave on the world: Like many, I hope that I can just bring a little more happiness and laughter into the world.
If you had 4 legs & you were furry, what would you be? I would have to say a cat. They embody all the things I could ever want in life! They are flexible, always land on their feet, and most importantly they get to nap whenever they see fit!

You are stuck on an island and can bring 3 things. What would they be?  Well, my logical answer would be some sort of inflatable raft, a paddle of some sort, and fresh water so I could make my way back to the mainland. But if it’s a place I can relax and enjoy, then I would bring some type of music
playing device (solar powered since I imagine there wouldn’t be outlets), a blanket for chilly nights, and a hammock to tie between to perfectly placed palm trees.
