Just for fun….
My favorite poses are…I love all balancing poses: tree, eagle, dancer, warrior III
The pose I avoid or ‘forget’ to teach is….Pincamayurasana: elbow balance, because inversions, and this one in particular, have always been extremely challenging for me.
I find inspiration….in the world all around me.
My ideal day looks like….lots of quiet time, a long walk, a bit of creative play, and dinner with family and friends.
When I was a kid….things were rough.
My hobbies include… walking in the forest, photography, dancing.
One of my favorite books is… Pilgrims to Openness, by Shambhavi Saraswati.
I won’t live without…. love.
My secret power is… levitation. (I’m working on it.)
