How did you get into Yoga? I consider Tara Stiles (Strala) my first ever yoga teacher. I was living in Spain and didn’t have easy access to a gym so I cracked her book “Slim Calm Sexy Yoga” and fumbled my way through poses in the backyard. That’s when I fell in love with the practice and my goal is to take a class from Tara in the flesh someday.

Music of Choice: It’s a toss-up between “Looking Too Closely” by Fink and “First Light” by Racing Glaciers.
Favorite Quote: “Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities. Always see them, for they’re always there.” – Norman Vincent Peale
