The world ends tomorrow. What would you indulge in tonight?
I would throw a big party and surround myself with family and friends.
What was your first experience with yoga?
I don’t remember my first yoga class but I remember my first hot yoga class. I was not practicing yoga regularly but was familiar enough with it. Apparently, I showed up to an intermediate level and I was struggling to keep up. Midway through the class the instructor said the next pose was a headstand, the lady next to me kindly told me to just lay on the mat. I felt so relieved. I didn’t realize she had been watching me and was more attuned to what I was doing than the actual instructor. I proceeded to lay flat on the mat the remainder of the class.
What is your favorite food?

Pigeon Pose is my favorite pose.
