Favorite Yoga Move: 

Salamba Sirsasana. I love the change in perspective and the feeling of reversing.

How Has Yoga Benefited You The Most: 

Yoga has, in a physical sense, kept me injury free. Emotionally, it has allowed me to learn to feel feelings. Feeling my feelings was difficult, so I would bottle them up and they manifested as anger. As you can imagine, a person who runs around mad at everything is not only unhappy but ends up attracting a lot of trouble. Yoga, in conjunction with other practices, has helped transform that habit. Today I am calm and grateful the majority of the time. I have learned to experience an emotion and then let it go. I have learned to find stillness and joy on a daily basis. I would encourage you to try yoga everyday, even if it's only 15 minutes at a time. You will see, the daily practice is transformative.

Reason Started Doing Yoga: 

I got into yoga seeking stress relief from annoying things in life--or life, you could say. It's worked and has brought more gifts than I could imagine.
