Personal mantra? It's all happening

How did you get into yoga? It was kind of an accident. I stumbled into a yoga class my Senior year of college and showed up to a bikram class in gym shorts and an oversized shirt. I may have flashed a few people that day, and sweat places I didn't know I could sweat, but left feeling lighter than I ever had. I just kept showing up on the mat and eventually it became something I couldn't function without. My lifeline. My happy place.

Favorite time of day to get your practice in? First thing in the AM.

What's your favorite part of Y7? The darkness and candlelight. This has been particularly powerful for me in terms of letting go of perfection and what it all looks like on the outside.
