WHEN DID YOU START YOGA AND WHERE? - I started about 4 years ago when I moved to California. I was new to Huntington Beach and decided to give Yoga Tribe a try. From my first Dayton class I was hooked and started practicing Dayton Method regularly. Shortly after, Warrior Flow was added to the studio and that broadened my yoga practice. HOW OFTEN DO YOU PRACTICE YOGA? - I try to participate in the physical practice of yoga at least 3-4 times per week. Although challenging at times, I am striving to take what I learn and feel on the mat and incorporate it into my  ..

Hometown: Lake Forest, California Childhood aspiration: Starting point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers When and where was your first yoga class: March, 1996 at Bikram's Yoga College of India in San Francisco. Yoga is the foundation to my life. Why I practice today is different than when I first started. When I was new, I was in awe of the level of difficulty and my complete inability to practice at the level I saw in the class. Bikram's studio had been open over 20 years and I was the baby of the class at age 26. I will never forget the feeling I experienced wal ..

Childhood aspiration: Rock star…right…party people. Who is your most influential teacher and why: Lately my studies have asked me to look at the not so obvious teachers but the people who have come into my life and made me uncomfortable challenging my grit to remain authentic. I have had a number of these people in my life and I can now have gratitude for them and what they taught me. I know nobody comes into your life by accident they all come to teach you something. How long have you been teaching yoga: Crazy but it will be 8 years next month .. Long deep breathing is one of the most common ways to breathe.

WHEN DID YOU START YOGA AND WHERE? I started yoga about 5 years ago. The first two years was a sporadic experience - like the proverb says “You have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince”, I had to sweat on many yoga floors before I found the right one. Among the popular studios I tried were Yogaworks and Corepower yoga, however I could not bring myself to fully commit to these places because the atmosphere was too competitive and elitist. HOW OFTEN DO YOU PRACTICE YOGA? I have joined Yoga Tribe for three years now and I enjoy the practice, the ins ..

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! It makes me feel strong, challenged, capable, and healthy. It calms my mind and slows me down. I have 3 young kids and it feels good to do something completely for ME. WHAT ARE THE PRIMARY BENEFITS YOU EXPERIENCE? An amazing balance of strength and flexibility. It also reminds me to be patient. Years of running and cycling made my hamstrings & hips very tight so I'm slowly trying to undo all of that! ..
