Q:
What is your current favorite OM piece?

A:
I am totally obsessed with the Flowy Pants! I love the softness of the fabric and the way the garment moves during practice.

Q:
What is your favorite way to move your body/what does your daily practice look like?

A:
My two favorite ways to move my body dancing & yoga, they compliment each other. My daily practice starts off with 10 sun salutations & then after that I practice freestyle yoga flows that sometimes include dance movements.

Q:
 How long have you been practicing yoga and what got you started?

A:
I first got into yoga back in the early 1990s. My husband and I were living in a commune called The Loft in downtown San Diego. It was the crossroad of technology and spirituality coming together with a mix of eclectic artists, musicians, and yogis—guided by Sufi master Murshid Isa Kadre. They offered Sufi chanting and dancing, Kundalini Yoga and a form of Tantric Yoga meditation called Rudra, as taught by Swami Rudrananda (Rudi). Kundalini Yoga was the first style of yoga that I practiced and then Ashtanga. Afterward, I started incorporating Vinyasa Yoga in my practice which is a style I love because of all the creative flows that can be put together. Then eventually I decided to get my certification as a Vinyasa Yoga Teacher to expand my yoga practice and be able to share it.

Q:
 What are your favorite life hacks?

A:
Always be grateful for everything, to always be positive and see the good in every bad or unfortunate situation. It has helped me cope well with anything stressful that happens and showed me to live mindfully and be cohesive with life.

Q: 
What are the most important roles you play in life?

A:
The most important roles that I play in my life are as a Mother, a Wife, a Sister, a Yoga Teacher, an Artist, an Entrepreneur, and a Patient Service Specialist.

Q:
what offerings would you like our community to know about (IG channel, local yoga class, teacher training, blog, etc).

A:
At the moment, I have my IG feed and channel to offer. I’m working towards being able to share more of my yoga sequences for all levels of yoga practitioners out there.

Q:
 What are your favorite hobbies?

A:
I have several hobbies, I love to dance, in the winter I snowboard with my family, I just recently took up indoor rock-climbing and I love to tend to my plants. I get inspired by my dreams, nature, love, possibility, creativity, and music.

Q:
 Do you have a favorite quote?

A:
Life can be simple and beautiful.

Q:
 How about a favorite book?

A:
A must-read is Spiritual Cannibalism by Swami Rudrananda
