What inspires you to teach others?
I am inspired to teach people who think they can't do yoga by empowering them with a "can-do" attitude and providing a "no judgment, no shame" environment by employing simple pranayama (breathwork), modifying asanas if needed and meditation to build confidence, strength and stillness of the mind through repetition and practice.
What is something your practice has taught you?
My practice has taught me that I have an amazing set of tools in my toolbox to bring with me on and off the mat for whatever life offers me, especially the ability to hit the "pause" button in my head and just breathe.
Kale AND bacon!
