Why have you chosen to teach at WAY?
I couldn’t imagine NOT teaching at WAY. The WAY community is full of my people. I have practiced side by side with so many students that I now call friends. I am so grateful the WAY community is where it is today.
What do you find most inspiring about being a yoga instructor?
Wow! For me it is witnessing the journey. Bodies and minds transformed — even in one class. The hectic energy of trying to get to class on time, or whatever may have accumulated in a day — everything is different on the other side of shavasana. The problem, the crisis, the challenges may still exist but the perspective is different.
If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
Ignorance or intolerance among human beings.
What is your favorite holiday and why?
Christmas. It has always felt magical.
How has your life/body changed since becoming a practitioner of yoga?
Yoga has touched every aspect of my life. For me, teaching, practicing, studying yoga is a way of life. Physically I am certain that every system in my body benefits from the light of yoga. Through vinyasa practice particularly, I feel strengthened yet very balanced in range of motion. Asana and meditation greatly impact my mental wellbeing, and ayurveda — the sister science to yoga is implemented into my daily life. I have gone through periods of injury, mental suffering and personal struggle yet yoga has been a consistent ray of light, hope and inspiration for me. Teaching requires a unique skill set in that you are literally holding space for personal transformation. I am dedicated to my personal practice with the intention that as a teacher I may remain strong, grounded and supportive to this beautiful teacher — student relationship.
