When was the last time you did something for the first time?
Well I spend most weeks of the year traveling to new places & meeting new people for the first time so I'd say my life is full of firsts. :)
What are your goals for 2016 and beyond?
My main goal and mission in life is to educate and empower teachers and to raise the bar for teacher trainings so that being a yoga teacher is a respectable profession. With so many teacher trainings and so many teachers now days I want to train teachers in a way that makes them remarkable and educate them in a way that they can learn to think for themselves to really help their students. There's nothing I love more than to teach teachers to understand the body to not only teach from a place of knowledge but also so that teachers can work with other health care providers to use yoga as medicine.
How would you describe your first yoga experience?
As a 14yr old girl when I found yoga, for me it was the physicality that drew me in. After growing up playing competitive sports the mind body connection sparked my interest immediately.
What is your favourite yoga pose and why?
I get asked that so often, I really never know what to say. The thing I love about yoga is the ability to get intimate with the practice both on a knowledge level & an experiential level so that we can use it as needed. So my practice constantly changes to support me.
