How long have you practiced Yoga? How often per week? I have been practicing Yoga consistently one day per week at the National Harbor for 7 weeks. I have tried yoga a few times last year, but never stuck with it.
What made you decide to practice Yoga? Last summer my Aunt Thelma, who is in her 60’s, invited me to visit her at the beach. I saw my aunt practicing the Eagle and the Warrior III Yoga poses by the ocean and I thought, “I want to be fit and flexible like my Aunt Thelma.” My aunt told me that she was in her 50’s when she started practicing Yoga. Also; my best friend Cesar, who is very flexible, enjoys Yoga. I would say both my Aunt Thelma and Cesar encouraged me to take Yoga classes.
What is your favorite Yoga pose and why is it your favorite? Shavasana (death pose) is my favorite pose because of the deep relaxation I feel during and after this pose. It is like a mini vacation; I feel rejuvenated every time I practice this pose.
