What's your superpower? / What do you want it to be?
My superpower is giving super hugs. I LOVE to hug. Even when you don’t want me to hug you, I probably will. And it will make you feel better- promise!
How do you express gratitude?
I express gratitude to others by showing empathy and understanding. I’m extremely grateful when others share a piece of their life or soul, and I want to honor and respect their decision to share and be brave. I am grateful when others open up and I want them to see that!
Why do you share yoga?
I share yoga because others have shared it with me. If I can offer this gift to any other willing human, I will! Life is hard and yoga brings me back to that place of self-love and acceptance. I would also be remiss if I didn’t admit how fun and challenging it is!
What's your favorite pose? Why?
My favorite pose is Salamba Sirsasana, or supported headstand. I love this pose so much because it is a constant challenge for me to get into this pose. It is one of those poses that can be extremely gratifying to be in because it takes so much breath work and core. It also turns my world completely upside down, literally, and helps be change my perspective on my practice. It is a new journey each time I try!
When was the last time you laughed out loud?
Today! My husband is the biggest goofball. Hearing him trying to sing to our son and making up some really interesting lyrics always cracks me up. I am a pretty soft and steady person, so when I laugh out loud is it quite noticeable and it’s hard to get me to stop!
What always makes you smile?
I always smile when I think of fond memories. I love to check out and daydream about all the great things that have happened in my life and it always brings a huge and goofy smile to my face. Also, walking around the city, being at home, traveling, sweets, a cold beer on a warm day, my husband, my baby, dog kisses, time with friends, my favorite music, and food…just food.
What does flow mean to you?
Flow, to me, is the ebb and flow of life. It is this beautiful, graceful, up and down journey on the mat that represents my experiences and outlook for the day. The best part about flowing is that I can show up on the mat and be amazed at whatever version of myself shows up to practice. I can just let that be and try not to define or force my practice into something it isn’t that day.
