Favorite inspirational quote: “You wander from room to room, hunting for the diamond necklace that is already around your neck.” – Rumi
When/where/with who was your first yoga class? Before school one morning during my senior year of high school with my very good friend, Cadena. Her father had just opened a yoga studio in downtown North Attleboro.
What / who inspires you? My mother and father. Also, nature and the circle of life – it just blows my mind.
What I love most about yoga is: Yoga has given me a new set of eyes. I love most that it continues to help me create space in places that I get stuck and how it helps me to shed off layers of armor that I wear for protection. It helps me to connect deeper with who I really am.
What you can’t live without? Fresh air and my few but very close, childhood girlfriends.
What you might not know about me: I have dreams of being a hip hop dancer with big, poofy hair wearing high top Reebok Pumps.
Best advice you’ve ever received (from who?): “Everything is a choice,” from a very good friend.
My favorite book: “How Yoga Works” by Michael Roach
Favorite Word: Hello
Local escape: Kennebunkport, ME
My favorite thing to do (other than yoga): Garden, cook, cat naps, swim, hike, play in the snow, and pretend to be a hip hop dancer.
