When you aren’t at the studio where can you be found (favorite past time)?
In a library checking out more books than I have time to read.
I teach because I love the body. I love how it moves and how movement makes me feel. My movement practice inspires me to teach, to share what I learn about my own body with others. Also getting people into weird shapes is pretty fun!
What brought you to become an instructor?
I finally felt like I had something to say and wanted to share my love of yoga.
What is your favorite song to play in class? Breathe by Sia
What is your favorite pose or flow? Why?
My favorite pose is urdvha dhanurasana. I love backbends. They are so challenging but always make me feel so happy. They are also my favorite thing to teach.
Memorable yoga moment?
The first time I did a handsstand! I practiced kicking up at the wall every single day for 9 months. Then one at the end of a class I dragged my mat to the wall and starting kicking. My teacher at the time saw me and just yelled KICK and then I fnially yet up! It was so exhilarating.
How did you first hear about One Down Dog? Through fellow teacher Courtney Sauls
What is your favorite yogi prop or piece to wear or use?
My favorite prop is a block.
Would you more likely tell your boss they had food in their teeth or let it slide? Tell them!
If you could have any super power what would it be? I’d be invisible
