Favorite inspirational quote: "Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love." — Rumi
When/where/with who was your first yoga class? November, 2009 at Metrowest Yoga, Sarah Whiteman
What / who inspires you? People who live their lives with passion and heart.
What I love most about yoga is: The calm and balance it brings to my life, and the amazing community of people I have come to know and love.
What you can’t live without? love
What you might not know about me: I love peanut butter, especially with ice cream.
Best advice you’ve ever received (from who?): In my junior year of college, a dear family friend (Aaron) encouraged me to let go of what I thought I should be doing and pursue my passion. I was a math major at the time, desperately unhappy, struggling to believe in myself and follow my heart as a designer. This decision completely changed the direction of my life. I am incredibly grateful and have never once looked back.
My favorite book: I'm not sure that I have an absolute favorite, but the book, Self Reliance (Ralph Waldo Emerson) had a deeply profound impact on my life.
Favorite Word: authenticity
Local escape: Wellfleet, MA
My favorite thing to do (other than yoga): I love listening to music, being at the beach, eating delicious food, traveling and exploring new places, going for walks in nature, spending time with my closest friends and family, quiet and solitude, sleep, and having unscheduled days with no definite plan.
