Can you talk to us about your practice and why this is so important to you?
Yoga is like hitting the refresh button for my mind, body, and soul. It's also my secret weapon for warding off stress and staying centered amid the daily grind of our fast-paced world. Rolling out my mat is a ritual of taking time for myself and remembering what counts.
What are some learnings from ancient practices that you carry with you daily?
Yoga helps me immensely to stay in the present moment. Learning how to control my breath during yoga practice has been incredibly empowering. It's amazing how something as simple as mindful breathing can have such a profound impact on both your physical and mental well-being!
