Brittney Ramsey 

How long have you practiced Yoga? How often per week?  I’ve been practicing yoga on and off for two years.

What made you decide to practice Yoga?  I’ve been a dancer since the age of five and retired from dancing in the NBA two years ago. Yoga is a great alternative to dance and helps me maintain my flexibility. 

What do you like about practicing Yoga at National Harbor?  Practicing yoga at the National Harbor is a great break away from the typical studio class. Being outdoors with a clear view of the water adds to the relaxation aspect of yoga.

What is your favorite Yoga pose and why is it your favorite?  Airplane is my favorite yoga pose. It takes focus, balance and strength to achieve.

Describe how Yoga has enhanced or changed your life. Yoga has helped improve my relaxation. It’s given me techniques to better my breathing and clear my mind. The strength and flexibility I have gained has also helped diminish my day-to-day pain.

How long have you practiced Yoga? How often per week?  I’ve known and attended yoga classes here and there over past decade, but it wasn’t til last year that I became a serious Yogi. I’ve acquired a 200 hour certification via Spiritual Essence Yoga studio and am now practicing at least 4-5 times a week.

What made you decide to practice Yoga?  Physical and mental health sustainment.

What do you like about practicing Yoga at National Harbor?  Feeling the power
of outdoors; being neat water.

What is your favorite Yoga pose and why is it your favorite?  I honestly don’t have a favorite. I am in appreciation of what they all represent in practice. I aspire towards holding crow pose for 5 breaths and to do a full handstand.

Describe how Yoga has enhanced or changed your life.  It has brought an understanding of the journey/pathway to peace and acceptance.
