Name 1 moment that completely changed your life: My husband’s career moved us to Illinois 8 years ago.  We knew no one and had never been in the midwest.  I used to say I could live anywhere, but this change put me to the test.  We have since developed an amazing community of friends and have a beautiful life in our adopted city.  
When did you start practicing yoga & why: I started going once a week about 11 years ago for flexibility.  Then about 4 years ago I hurt my ankle and was limited to yoga for exercise.  Practicing daily gave me a deeper understanding of the practice and I became hooked.  It centers me.
Favorite Pose: My favorite pose will truly depend on the day and my state of mind.  I love childs pose first thing in the morning to turn inward and find my breathe, half moon when I feel strong and grounded and twists just feel good.  
Favorite Mantra: Be true to yourself.  Never worry about what other people think.
Best Advice Ever Given: Before you confront someone, think about what you are looking to get out of it.  (That being said, I am not a confrontational person)
Best Advice to Give: No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. (Eleanor Roosevelt)
