What is your favorite yoga posture?

I actually have 2 favorites – tree pose and pigeon pose.  Tree pose was the first posture where I truly connected with my uddiyana bandha, feeling grounded and expansive with equanimity.  I love the feeling of my hips opening in pigeon, slowly and intentionally.

What do you value most in your life?

I most value cultivating mindfulness, awareness, patience and acceptance.

What and where are you happiest?

That moment near the end of a yoga class when I realize savasana is next and I get to completely let go and relax.

What is the quality you like most in people?

When someone is compassionate and has the courage to be vulnerable and authentic.

What natural gift would you like most to possess?

I would love to have the gift of a beautiful singing voice, but alas, I do not… so in the meantime, I turn up the stereo in my car, sing loudly and imagine I sound like those that have this gift ☺
