Favorite inspirational quote: "Because you are alive, everything is possible." ~Thich Nhat Hanh

When/where/with who was your first yoga class? My first experience with Yoga was a Rodney Yee VHS tape. Everything changed after that, and I began to attend classes from there.

What / who inspires you? Music, family and friends.

What I love most about yoga is: The shift that occurs within my emotions, physical body and thoughts. The practice always leaves me feeling light and simple.

What you might not know about me: I've spent many years working as a professional bass player. I've performed and/or recorded throughout Western Europe, Japan and the U.S.

Best advice you’ve ever received (from who?): "Keep looking for the pretty notes"

My favorite book: Light on Life - B.K.S Iyengar.

Favorite Word: Breathe

Local escape: Trails in the woods near where I grew up. Beals Preserves. Part of the Southborough Open Land Foundation.

My favorite thing to do (other than yoga): I love to be creative. Whether it be creating new music or simply cooking a good meal.
