2. What’s your favorite song to practice to, or favorite playlist?

I prefer to practice with no music or maybe just white noise in the background. When I teach I open pandora and my favorite station is : Sanskrit. It plays music with no lyrics and it was like a Moroccan, Arabic … Indian type of feel.

3. What is something you’ve learned from yoga that resonates with you the most?

I have learned way too much and will continue to expand my studies. For right now… I am embracing that change is constant. I constantly need to update my facts to re-evaluate and update my “truth.”
