How did you get to WVPY?
Pure curiosity. Fun fact: I actually did not like yoga right away but something kept bringing me back and now I like it!
What makes you laugh the most?
I laugh a lot, mostly at my jokes. I like to think I'm a pretty funny person.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Benny's donuts, all day everyday.
What are 3 things you’d take on a deserted island?
(why is it always 3?)
1. A guide to edible wild plants. Specifically those with a knife included in the back cover.
2. My family, but if whoever made the “3 things” rule says no then pictures of my family and close friends.
3. My dog, Roo but she wouldn't like the island life so I guess I'd adopt a dog and take it with me.
When you’re not on your mat where can we find you?
If its mornings then jiu jitsu. Evenings and not at yoga? work or eating. Weekends? probably reading the newspaper.
What is your greatest life lesson/learning so far?
I was once told that life is too short to be taken seriously and this advice forever changed my life. I took greater risks, started speaking my mind and started to understand that nothing lasts forever, which in a way made me enjoy things a lot more.
Why Baptiste Yoga?
It opened the doors for me to learn a lot about myself, physically and emotionally. It's not just Baptiste Yoga itself, but the actual studio. The community is so welcoming, I have yet to experience that elsewhere.
