Hometown: Ramsey, New Jersey
On weekends you can be found: Never at brunch because I absolutely despise brunch. Maybe at the laundromat because ugh. Definitely with my friends doing something out of the ordinary in (hopefully) Brookyln.
Favorite movie of all time: Well, this is just impossible to answer!
Favorite time of day to get your practice in? The evening. I enjoy coming onto the mat when I am ready to let go of my day.
Weirdest place you've ever practiced at: In my dreams.
How did your first yoga class go? I don't remember. I was blacked out with nerves, but my buddies said it was great.
Your personal mantra is... Whenever I am having a hard moment, bad day or just feeling really down I like to remind myself that I can always "turn it on it's head." Meaning, I have the power to change my mind about what's happening. Maybe it's a shift in perspective, maybe I force myself to literally fake a smile, but when things feel out of control, we often forget that we have a set of tools to help us regain a sense of calm...just change your mind and don't forget to breathe!
What's your favorite part of Y7? The #darkness. Kidding! (although it is a great element). My favorite part is my new friends! I've gotten really close with my fellow teachers and students. They're all so wonderful and have gifted me with a much needed reminder that although this city can feel really isolating and lonely, there's an opportunity to meet great people around every corner! Aww! (*tear*)
