When was the last time you did something for the first time?
The last time that I did something for the first time was this morning. I submitted my first yoga article to a popular yoga and wellness blog!
What are your goals for 2016 and beyond?
My biggest goals for 2016 are to travel as much as I can, and to inspire and empower as many people as I can. I am also focused on writing, submitting, and publishing articles to yoga blogs, websites, and journals. My yoga goal is to learn to comfortably press-up to a handstand and practice a one-handed handstand with stability and control.
What is your favourite yoga pose and why?
My favorite yoga pose is handstand. When I am upside down, I feel light, happy and free. Balancing on my hands is one of my favorite ways to practice staying present. Whenever I lose focus, I fall and I am reminded to live in the now.
