What made you fall in love with exercise?
For me, the most transformative aspect of exercise goes beyond the physical results, which are great, but the mental strength, fortitude, confidence and self-efficacy a regular physical practice can inspire. That is what keeps me coming back again and again. Plus I just love the magic of music and movement.
What's in your smoothie?
Vegan Vanilla Previnex, Frozen Mango, Bananas, Coconut Milk, Noni Powder, Ginger and Tumeric.
What is your ideal Saturday/Sunday?
On Saturdays I like to sleep in, take the family for hike, catch up my reading and chores around the house. Sundays, I usually teach in the morning, go to brunch with friends and then check out the local shops and community events. I love supporting local businesses and I make it a point to support the makers and dreamers of whatever city I happen to be living in. Lately I’ve been loving Sunday evening Yin Yoga followed by a sound bath.
Favorite TV shows?
Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones and How to Get Away with Murder. Gosh they're all a little dark, huh?! My whole life revolves around positive motivation and uplifting and inspiring others. I think, maybe, tapping into the darker side of things can help cultivate more light.
