How long have you practiced Yoga? How often per week? On and off for about 5 years. At my peak, twice a week.
What made you decide to practice Yoga? To relax! I am on the go a lot and was not paying attention to my body. I started feeling really tight and getting a lot of little aches and pains that I did not want to use over the counter meds to “fix”.
What do you like about practicing Yoga at National Harbor? The view! It’s a beautiful space and great atmosphere.
What is your favorite Yoga pose and why is it your favorite? I enjoy the Sun Salutations. I like the flow of the movements and using my breath.
Describe how Yoga has enhanced or changed your life. As a dancer and dance teacher, as well as working a full time sedentary job, I’m always on the go! Yoga gives me the opportunity to turn my mind off and check in with my body. It has helped with my anxiety and gotten me to focus on being in the moment!
