Favorite Yoga Move: 

Savasana. This was and will probably be my most challenging yoga pose...to quiet and harness the fluctuations of the mind. Savasana has helped me the most internally with my self-talk and externally with my surfing. It enabled me to reduce anxiety, fear in my mind and to reach a place of calmness and assurance, even as I'm being tossed and turned by the ocean.

How Has Yoga Benefited You The Most: 

Yoga has allowed me to understand who I am, to take away layers of anxiety, fears, expectations, self-worth, validations. To really get to know who I am at my core.

Reason Started Doing Yoga: 

For years, I've told myself that the asana, physical practice attracted me, but as I reflect after practicing for 6 years, I realized that the philosophy was always woven into my life's purpose. Yoga truly and honestly saved my life, it helped redirect me to a path filled with much more clarity and peace. I always loved the workout in my beginner days, but at the seat of my essence, I was speaking and guiding my true self to become a student, a teacher, an observer, a lover.
