1. What is your favorite Yoga style and pose?
My favorite yoga style is yoga nidra and my favorite yoga pose is Savasana ( Okay I’m just
kidding!) There’s absolutely nothing wrong with either that style or the pose, I am all for deep
relaxation but I do prefer something that’s a bit more mentally and physically challenging. I’ll
have to say my favorite style is a combination of Hatha yoga and Vinyasa yoga. My favorite
yoga pose is by far the dancer pose and any variation of it.
2. How did you get interested in Yoga?
A friend of mine suggested that I look up Tara Stiles Yoga on YouTube. I got really into it and
started practicing at home daily. I started to develop a true passion for yoga and decided to study
yoga and become a qualified yoga instructor.
3. If you could compare yourself to an animal, which would it be and why?
I would say a cat. Cats are cute but yet feisty. They enjoy the company, care, love and
attention of their owners but they don’t ever fully become dependent of that. They live a
comfortable life and roam freely.
4. What do you like to do in your free time?
Well now that’s a given! Yoga obviously! I am very consistent in my yoga training and I use
my free time to improve my yoga skills or help my clients improve their yoga skills by doing one
on one training with them. Yoga isn’t just a job to me. Yoga is my passion, it’s what drives me in
life and through yoga I am able to connect with like minded people and develop amazing
5. What is the funniest thing that happened to you recently?
Thinking…..thinking….thinking…..okay nothing comes to mind. That’s a bit of a vibe kill ??
6. What’s the last thing you watched on TV and why did you choose to watch it?
Zumbo’s just desserts on Netflix. I totally do have a sweet tooth and I love yummy mouth
watering and beautiful desserts.
7. What’s your favorite drink?
Triple tall cap from Seattle Coffee. ( For those of you who don’t understand coffee lingo, this
is a medium sized cappuccino with three shots of espresso in it.) I don’t have sugar with it
because I enjoy very strong coffee and I get my sugar fix from desserts ??.
8. If a penguin wearing a sombrero walks through your front door, what does he say and why is he here?
The penguin says hi and asks if I want to join his new dance crew lead by Mumble from
Happy Feet. My answer is yes! Let’s go shake some booty.
