What do you love about Traverse City?

Traverse City has everything I need. It’s close enough to my hometown, Charlevoix and small enough to not get lost. I’ve been here since 1987 so I’m familiar with what’s available. There’s much to offer here throughout the year, including festivals of all sorts, sporting events, great places to eat, and YOGA!

What inspires you?

The people I spend time with inspire me to be a better person. Life is a constant stream of evolving (with many bends along the way). I’m inspired every time I find a moment of contentment and peace…..inspired to continue creating moments like that for myself and those around me.

What do you most value in your life?

Besides those moments of contentment and being in the ‘now’, my most valued time is when all my children are together in the same house with me.

When and where are you the happiest?

I am happiest when I am “Here and now”. Practicing mindfulness is just that, “Practice.” So, when I’m able to be present in the moment that is my happiest time, no matter where it is.

What is your favorite yoga posture?

Shavasana is probably my most favorite and most challenging. This is the time when I work the most to allow myself to just be. It’s the pose that has taught me the most about myself.
