Favorite Inspirational Quote: Everything is going to be ok.

When/where/with who was your first yoga class? South Boston, MA. I don’t remember the name of the studio but it closed in 2004. Jacqui Bonwell was my first teacher and is still my favorite teacher. How cool is that?

What/who inspires you? The vast abundance of amazing yoga teachers that are in the area, the funny funny people floating around on the internet, macro photography, bugs, bonsai, my home and everyone who lives there. Oh and reddit/awww.

What I love most about yoga is: Finding myself laughing at some silly podcast while sitting in traffic. 10 years ago I would have been simmering with frustration.

What you can’t live without? Don’t really have anything. I love my stuff and the people around me but I think the human spirit can carry on with any change. Ok I’d be really bummed out without pizza.

What you might not know about me: I fold towels and laundry really really well. Best advice you’ve ever received (from who?): My friend Aaron has given me so much that I cant even think of one thing.

My favorite book: Contact by Carl Sagan if you had to twist my arm, but Douglas Adams if I want to laugh.

Favorite Word: Luminous

Local Escape: Right now, Wingaersheek beach.

My favorite thing to do (other than yoga): Have a day that does not have anything scheduled.

Ray Mucci instructs the following:
  • Slow Flow (Mild Heat)
  • MYoga Slow Flow incorporates the same principles as MYoga Flow, with less postures than a regular Flow Yoga class — more emphasis on alignment, breath and the foundational tools of a yoga practice. We recommend 3 -6 classes before attending a regular Flow Yoga class. (Mild Heat)

  • Flow (Hot Heat)
  • MYoga Flow Yoga covers a wide variety of yoga styles. Including; Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Bikram and Baptiste. It is a vigorous practice that strengthens the core muscles in the body, enhances flexibility, while encouraging deep concentration and focus. All Flow Yoga is practiced in a heated room. The heat encourages perspiration, which helps to detoxify and cleanse the body. The muscles respond to the heat by relaxing and allowing us to move deeper into a posture. There is an assumption that you have practiced before, so there is less attention to alignment ques. This moves at a faster pace to elevate the heart rate and elevate the cardiovascular system as well as develop strength and flexibility. This practice will tone and sculpt your body and heal your soul. Be prepared to sweat, and discover your inner strength!  (Hot Heat)
