Who is your most influential teacher and why: My most influential teacher is Jason Wilkerson. He has taught me everything I know, with love and kindness. Jason has taught me to work hard for what you want to accomplish, to pick yourself back up when you have fallen, and to remember there are always people behind you supporting you. When was the defining moment when you realized you wanted to teach yoga:— I honestly didn’t know if I was ready to take the teacher training and teach yoga. Jason pushed me to take the teacher training and in the beginning I b ..

HOW OFTEN DO YOU PRACTICE YOGA? Right now I practice 3 times a week, if all goes according to plan. :) WHY DO YOU PRACTICE YOGA? So many reasons!

Years of running and cycling made my hamstrings & hips very tight so I'm slowly trying to undo all of that! ..

Lisa (second from right) WHEN DID YOU START YOGA AND WHERE? I first tried Yoga about 15 years ago at a wonderful fitness center I belonged to in Rochester, New York, where I lived for most of my life... and I did not like it at all! I tried again periodically, and finally found some instructors and classes that I enjoyed, and I began to practice what I now call "fitness yoga" several times a week about 5 years ago. I moved to Huntington Beach in January 2015 and found a couple of instructors I liked, again at a fitness center, but was practicing only once or twice p ..

Photograph by Jessica Brady Hometown: Brookings, OR Childhood aspiration: I wanted to be a gymnast like Nadia Com─âneci When and where was your first yoga class: hmm...I think it was a 90 minute beginning Hatha Yoga class at a fitness convention 1997.

Drink Up This is a no-brainer for any form of strenuous exercise, but it’s extremely important for hot yoga.

Swami Kriyananda in his book, Ananda Yoga® for Higher Awareness, explains that although Hatha yoga (postures) benefits the body tremendously, its original purpose was to prepare the body and mind for meditation. Paramhansa Yogananda said: The ordinary person’s energy is locked in his body.

This is why, for new medit ..
