ask an instructor – 10 questions
the very first yoga class you attended? Laguna Beach recreation dept. My instructor used an Indian rug instead of a mat!
what is it about yoga that inspires you? Yoga is transformative from the inside, outside, mind and body
what yoga item(s) could you not be without? If I could only pick one, my mat. It is an oasis to me.
your favorite post yoga class snack? Hmm don’t really have one but maybe a “green drink”.
which book would you recommend to a brand new student of yoga? Depends on the interest. Autobiography of a Yogi (Paramahansa Yogananda), Meditations from the Mat (Rolf Gates), Yoga for Osteoporosis (Dr Loren Fishman). Some people are interested in the spiritual or physical aspects, others the historical or philosophical aspects. Starting with what interests you will keep you interested!
if you could teach a class anywhere in the world, where would it be? I am passionate about travel and could easily give you an exotic place however where the students are engaged and present is the most rewarding and exciting to me.
type of class you like to attend when you are not the instructor? My practice is changing. I like a class that is not hot fast yoga but one where I can connect to my body on that day.
favorite thing to do if not doing yoga? Hike, travel
if you weren’t a yoga instructor? I was an elementary art teacher prior to teaching yoga. I would go back to that.
as a yoga instructor, what do you hope a new student takes away from your class? A Connection to their body and the desire to try another class (of any kind of yoga).
