1. What originally brought you to yoga?
Yoga was an option for gym in high school and I thought “heck yeah, I get to nap at the end!” Traditional gym was not for me and I loved yoga- I’ve been studying and practicing for almost 10 years now thanks to that yoga option in school!
2. What keeps you coming back?
Yoga has prevented me from reoccurring injuries that I was prone to get as a runner. Most importantly, it keeps my mind happy.
3. What is your favorite asana and why?
Parsva Bakasana (Side Crow) because it is really challenging for me and it’s the pose that I have worked on throughout teacher training.
4. What do you love about Seva?
The people! Everyone at Seva- the teachers, the students and the desk staff are welcoming and knowledgeable. (Also love the decorating- so inviting-great job Amanda!)
5. What do you bring off your mat from your practice?
Practicing yoga gives me a better attitude and outlook on life. My boyfriend would say that I roll my eyes less when I practice yoga more often.
6. Favorite Book
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
7. Favorite Place to Visit
Coffee flavored coconut ice cream- I’m actually not sure if it exists, but I can imagine it would be the best food ever.
