Take-Away Tips

How has yoga been useful to you?
The intensity of Hot yoga helps quiet my mind, a regular practice brings balance and strength and teacher training has provided a barrier to stress I didn’t know existed.

Yoga Teachers
What teachers inspire you?
Yogapod houses a number of inspirations:
– Todd Inouye (you can still be edgy and love yoga)
– Cindy MacDonald (her calming presence and perspective)
– Shannon Mugajic (her tough classes—and her body is a work of art)

Learnings
What challenging, or simply un-fun, life experience became an opportunity for you to learn?
A roller coaster year of honesty, humility, forgiveness, courage and renewal. (New city, new business, new non-marital status.)

I learned that you get through it, that love and friendship mean everything, that you can eat nachos for a year straight and that everything really does happen for a reason.

Inspiration
What inspires you?

Stress Buster
