What do you love about Traverse City?
My favorite thing about Traverse City is that we are surrounded by so many fresh, beautiful bodies of
water and that we have access to so many discrete beaches and hiking trails.

What is your favorite virtue?
Gratitude

What do you most value in your life?
Health

How do you define health?
Health is the ability to put yourself first, to prioritize your unique, individual needs. To develop an
intuitive relationship with your body, being able to discern between the things that serve you and don’t.
To know, and be able to give yourself exactly what you need physically, emotionally, mentally, and
spiritually, through food, activities, habits, lifestyle, and relationships.

What is your favorite yoga posture?
My favorite pose would probably be pigeon. I love an energetic vinyasa practice although my favorite
postures tend to be intense hip-opening yin poses!
