What’s your favorite yoga pose and why?
Any variation of Lotus pose, Padmasana. I love the connection to Earth and Water as well as the symbol of spiritual awakening through the unfolding of the petals. When in Lotus pose, I feel both grounded and spiritually connected. It is in this pose when I can rest in deep peace, our true essence.
What is your favorite quote?
“We are all walking each other home.” – Ram Dass
What inspires you in your practice?
I am so inspired by devotion and the path of Bhakti Yoga. The sweetness of offering every act and thought to Krishna is a beautiful practice that I deeply admire. I am inspired by those completely immersed in love.
